This is a dark historical romance. If you are looking for a book with a lot of layers, this one is for you.
And she shouldn’t, naturally. At the beginning, Ian’s cold and methodical plot feels disproportionate to the crime committed against him; he appears warped and unreasonable. This is due almost entirely to an assumption that readers are familiar with events five years ago, and can extrapolate Viola’s and Ian’s current behaviour from the past. Since I haven’t read the previous book, things were rather muddled for a while.
