Roxanne’s business could really use the
financial punch in the arm Aidan Nevan’s contract can give
her. But some things really are too good to be true - is
this one of them? Against her better judgment she takes the
contract, only to find that she is to teach him on his
private island. Once she gets there though, weather and fate
seem to conspire to keep her trapped there.
As I was reading Witch Island
by Stephanie Bedwell-Grime, I had to keep reminding myself I
was not reading an old fashioned gothic romance from the
seventies. All the elements were there – the trapped damsel,
the spooky house and grounds, the strange happenings, and
the dark and enigmatic rich hero. If you like gothic
romances, then you will most likely love this book. I like
Ms. Bedwell-Grime’s voice and her over all writing style,
but I found Roxanne a little too weak for my liking. As for
Aidan, I felt we barely saw enough of him to know much about
him, never mind to feel for his issues.
I will give Ms. Bedwell-Grime another shot, willingly, but
will make sure to steer from her Gothic Romances.
