I am so satisfied with this MM Fantasy, it is very hard to find MM Historical and this fun to read. I mean, we have...
A likeable Earl who can kick ass (as well as his sidekick, his manservant).
A magician who knows how to act in any dangerous circumstance.
A little town (and the staff of the Mansion too) who hates the Earl.
Gothic setting (at least, dark Victorian!)
Sexual tension (and vertical sex!).
Murders and mystery.
From the very first page is engripping. When I got to the last page, I was O_O this is over?? So, thumbs up for the first book of this series and its charming heroes.
