Victorian Paranormal Romance
Rating: 3 cups
Charlotte Thornton listened to her aunt, Margaret, over a year ago when she encouraged Charlotte to marry Lawrence instead of Inspector William Morgan. Now, the talented young medium is divorcing her husband because he is not the man she thought he was.
Inspector William Morgan was devastated when Charlotte chose Lawrence Thornton over him. With Aunt Margaret’s meddling, William knows more about Charlotte’s divorce than was needed.
Lawrence is not happy that his wife left him, and he vows to get her back at any cost. He begins by blackmailing Aunt Margaret and her lover. Charlotte is enjoying her life, but as the secrets become exposed, she learns her husband has a far darker history than she could have foreseen. It is up to William to protect Charlotte from her husband’s sick and twisted mind. Getting to spend time with Charlotte just sweetens the deal for him.
A Darker Purpose fully lives up to its name. The love that Charlotte and William share is such a ray of sunshine compared to the obsessiveness of Lawrence. The way in which Lawrence’s illness eats at his mind makes it impossible for the reader to feel any compassion for the man. The characters are certainly ones that people can relate to. Anyone reading this book will find themselves transported through time to land in this imaginative story from the mind of Ms. Parsons Mills.
