The Dark Castle Lords
Rating: 4 Cups
Alyssa has had a lot to deal with recently, the death of both her parents and finding out that she has a half-sister she never knew existed. She does not expect to fall in love.
Marco has a satisfying life as a successful artist with no permanent ties. Something about Alyssa draws him instantly and makes him want to make her part of his life permanently.
A successful artist and a beautiful young woman meet and find an instant connection, but fate tears them apart for a time. Only time will tell if they can make their way back to one another. The daughter they share is a tie of love for them both.
Ms. Hofman writes fine romances with handsome and sensitive heroes and strong and very feminine heroines. This is no exception. Marco is the perfect Latin Lover type, but very sensitive. Alyssa seems a bit submissive at first, but is tough where it counts. The character of the half-sister Lara is a bit unsettling. She is a heroine of a previous story and pretty horrible for most of the book here. Other than that, I enjoy the fact that the author revisits the same community in her stories and that so many of the characters are familiar. It is like visiting with old friends. The love story here is passionate and complex and a little melodramatic, in a good way. I really enjoyed it.
