Baron Gervase Daltrey, is a dark, mysterious and most feared man - a demonic Hound of Hell to all who know him. Her father dead, our heroine, Lady Mariel Hayes, falls prey to Baron Harold Flanders, a nobleman, who wishes to take over her land as well as her honor. Lady Mariel is rescued from the clutches of her unwanted suitor by none other than the Hound himself.
Attaining Mariel as his wife, Baron Daltrey sets out to find the soul responsible for the beastly killings on his land. In doing so, he stumbles upon a plot to kill his new bride. Daltrey’s brother, Edmond and wife, Elizabeth, continue their frequent visits and offer aid against these attacks, yet the attempts on Lady Mariel continue. Baron Flanders is the obvious suspect. Baron Daltrey sets out to rid Flander’s heinous deeds from ever darkening the steps of Ayleshind again, only to find his assumptions were wrong. Has Gervase left the woman who has claimed his heart in mortal danger?
I am not typically a reader of historical romance, although I do enjoy them from time to time. In reading Her Dark Baron, I came across a few inconsistencies such as the use of weaponry and mixing of classes, which would not be done in the timeline this author is writing in. As well, punctuation, grammar and point of view errors as sporadically mixed within its pages.
Author, Nadja Notariani, writes a page turning tale. Despite the errors, the story remains riveting and action-filled. The emotion between her heroes is felt as their love and respect for each other blossoms. The book would have done better if its main characters were given the chance to develop further. The reader could bond with them in their actions if more background into the work of Baron Daltrey and the strength of Mariel’s character was given. Despite the lack of information, this remains a sensual read for those who like romance. I enjoyed the story premise and dialogue and would read more from this author.
