Firelight starts with a prologue, which gives Archer’s view of his first meeting with Miranda. She changes his life, gives him hope, only, she doesn’t know it or who he is.

The romance between Archer and Miranda builds slowly and realistically. They connect and see each other for who they are, not the masks each wears, although only Archer’s is physical. I did get tired of secrets and was glad when they trusted each other enough to reveal themselves. Archer’s secret reveal is especially touching-I really felt for him. The sexual tension is well written, so by the time they finally get to it-the reader should be as ready as they are. Archer and Miranda have been married for several weeks anyway-it’s past time! The ending was satisfying. I am ready to read the next book, Moonglow, about Ian, Marquis Northrup, a werewolf.

More please!

This was deeply romantic and powerful. The mystery and suspense elements were engaging and well done. I'm glad I read Ember first, because this on its own may not have made me care about the hero enough. I did, however, and found this to be a fantastic book to binge on ( )

4.5 wonderful love story, part historical romance part paranormal fantasy, all together a great read! ( )

Firelight is a historical fiction with a touch of paranormal. What really got me intrigued was the blurb describing a man in a mask and since I have been enchanted with The Phantom of the Opera since I was a young girl was this something I just had to read.

Miranda has a powerful gift that for her is much more of a curse since her ability destroyed her father's fortune and because of their situation she has to marry a man or get cast out on the street. What she doesn't know is that the man, the Lord Benjamin Archer is the same man that saved her when she was younger. He is also a man that is hiding his face, but why?

First and most, this isn't the kind of book I usually go for when it comes to paranormal, I prefer horror instead of romance. But I liked the book's cover on NetGalley and as I stated above liked the blurb so I thought I would give it a go.

There are things that bothered me with the story, like for instance the secrets between Miranda and Archer, but this isn't the first book I will read or the last that the characters misunderstand each other because they keep secrets from each other. But it would have saved them a lot of time just being honest with each other. I also felt the story dragged on a bit. But this is a love story so they have to have this lustful dance around each other before they consummate their passion. (Why on earth it took so long time beats me since it's obvious they have the hots for each other).

I liked the waiting to uncover what's under Archers mask, it's a smart move drag out the waiting, it is much more alluring to read a book that has some mysteries left towards the end.

I received this copy from the publisher through Netgalley in return for an honest review! ( )
