Cilia Makepeace has found herself in a
most precarious situation. After getting blamed for
stealing her aunt's necklace, when it was her cousin Harry
who committed the crime, her aunt wants to get rid of Cilia.
She is sold to a brothel where her innocence is up for
auction. Cilia manages to escape and finds herself seeking
out Devlin Rutherford, the Third Duke of Easterly whom she
once thought looked nice. She has a strong feeling that
this man can help get her life back on track.
Devlin is shocked to discover a strange
looking boy asking for his help to straighten out a dire
situation. He is shocked and confused when every instinct
tells him that this is his mate. But with further review,
Devlin discovers it's not a boy at all, but a woman, who has
decided to conceal her identity. Knowing this mysterious
woman is his mate, Devlin will now do anything to keep Cilia
by his side forever.
Magic has found a way to bring these
two wonderful people together.
Heart of the Maze is a quick historical that
is able to pull all the magical romantic elements together.
Rain Chapman set a remarkable scene for Cilia and Devlin to
fall in love. His home, his family, and friends all
heighten the experience in this tale. I didn't feel cheated
by the length, but felt satisfied that Ms. Chapman wrapped
everything up so nicely. I loved the mystical quality that
these two lovers possessed. I'll definitely be seeking out
more books by Ms. Chapman.
