The Viscount Who Lived Down the Lane

****1/2


     Louisa Tempest and her twin sister are in London for their long delayed coming out. But when they arrive, they discover that their hostess, Lady Charleton, has passed away, and her husband is none too willing to have them in his home. The grieving widower is forced to adhere to his wife’s promise, but he will not do it graciously.
     The Tempest twins’ arrival in London is not smooth. Louisa’s cat Hannibal is a hellion who escapes into a neighbor’s house, forcing her to chase him. Pierson Stratton is furious about the invasion of his home when he’d rather crawl into a bottle with his grief, but Miss Tempest and her cat just will not leave him alone. He won’t admit it, but he wants her to keep invading his solitude.
     Elizabeth Boyle has a marvelous knack for writing compulsively readable novels that are just blissful experiences. Even with the dark subjects tackled here, joy radiates from the pages. This is part of the "Rhymes with Love" series but is a standalone tale.

*****


     At the wedding of her brother and her friend, Hermione Marlowe finds a ring that she believes belongs to her new sister-in-law. She has no idea that this is Milton's Ring, which is a magic ring. When the wearer makes a wish, the ring tightens and cannot be taken off until the wish comes true. Hermione has a massive crush on the Earl of Rockhurst, a man whom her friends feel is unworthy of her, and he doesn't seem to know she's alive. After a fanciful conversation with her friends, she makes a wish. From dusk to dawn, she will be invisible, and in this state learn all of Rockhurst's secrets, and he will learn hers. That very night, her wish becomes true, and she disappears. She is given some guidance by the mysterious Quince; then she follows Rockhurst into the night. She intends to prove he is not the profligate scoundrel society sees, but what she finds is a shock. First he visits a brothel in Seven Dials. Then he does battle with a horrifying creature in an alleyway. She manages to injure the creature with a crossbow bolt, but now she's peered into a world that seems unreal. Rockhurst is in reality the Paratus, guardian of humans from evil creatures from another realm. For his part, Rockhurst is intrigued by his invisible minx. He does not know for sure if she's friend or foe, but he does not need to see her to make love to her.
     
Elizabeth Boyle follows up His Mistress By Morning with this perfectly enchanting tale. The wish-granting ring shows Hermione a world of dark fantasy that readers of fantasy romance will adore. Best of all, the enchantment will continue, as another Marlowe sibling will get a story.
