Only to be abducted from the man she loves by the man she loathes.

This story hooked me from the beginning and the further I got the more I couldn't put it down. All the twists and turns in the plot were well written and unpredictable.
Without giving away any of the plot it didn't end for Persephone in the way that I was anticipating so I will be reading the next in the series in hopes that all is not lost. I do like a happy ending at the end of the day so I will royally p'd off if that doesn't happen.

One or two things that I didn't like was how young Persephone was. I didn't like the big age gap between herself and the two male characters as it had a bit of an ick factor. I also would have liked more interaction between the ordinary Regency world and the magic world; maybe see more manipulation of the ordinary world by the magi.

All in all an enjoyable read. I recommend you give it a go.
