Missing Lily
“You don’t know who I am,” I whispered. He didn’t move—either away from me, or closer—and after an interminable moment, I stepped back and hurried out of the house.

He didn’t follow me as I fled into the night.”

Lylin was not used to being alone—much less alone, hurt, and lost. So when she is separated from her guard and forced to abandon her horse, she counts herself lucky to stumble upon a manor house.

When they fall into an easy friendship, she wonders if her secrecy was too hasty. However, as she gets to know the manor and its residents, Lylin discovers that she’s not the only one hiding secrets, and it may be a very good thing that her host doesn’t know her true identity as a member of the royal family.

She wore no lipstick nor surgical enhancements to give her smile that extra charm, nor did I ever notice a God-given dimple. Continue reading

I stumbled upon these books a while ago and found one of my now favorite authors–Taylor Dean. I’m not really a paranormal romance reader (although I loved Twilight and a couple others in that genre), but I really liked Lancaster House and The Middle Aisle!

The cover gave off a creepy, scary aura though, and the Lancaster House isn’t a horror novel. It’s a romance. People who love paranormal romance are turned off by the creepy cover.
