I don't know if this was supposed to be a gothic, a historical paranormal, or just a light-hearted house party Regency style. It was a little of each and not well executed. The MCs are boring and flat. The side characters' love story was more entertaining and that wasn't well executed either (they went from arguing to committed relationship in less than a page). There was a love triangle that came out of left field but was half-hearted effort at best. 15 of the 76 NOOK pages was excerpts of Dare's other works. 0 stars.
