Review: The Lost Soul of Lord Badewyn (The Order of the MUSE #3) by Mia Marlowe

The Lost Soul of Lord Badewyn

Synopsis

He vowed to never fall in love...

Meg Anthony was never raised a lady. Instead, she grew up amongst grifters who used her unique "finding" ability for their own selfish purposes. Recently, she's been taken under the wing of the Duke of Camden and the Order of M.U.S.E., learning not only the fine art of becoming a lady, but how to use her extraordinary talent to help others.

But Meg's gift is a beacon to unsavory characters who would possess her.

Charged with her protection, Lord Badewyn knows--too well--that his wild, Welsh castle is no safe haven for this lovely, all-too-desirable creature. Part human, part fallen angel, he is one of the Nephilim. He is a recluse sworn never to love. As the dangers to Meg grow more threatening, he cannot help but find himself tempted beyond all reason...and tested to see if he has both a heart and a soul.

5-Stars Review

Wow! This was quite a read. Its a historical romance novel which also has a lot of mystery, intrigue, excitement and people with special powers or gifts. In my opinion it is very difficult to put it in one specific genre, it has a bit of everything which makes it perfect. It has a beauty-and-the-beast-ish touch but a lot more mystery revolving around "the beast" i.e. Lord Badewyn.

Meg is a member of M.U.S.E. Her ability is that she can find things and people. It is a dangerous gift and every time she goes "finding" she gets closer to her death. This is the reason why she is forbidden by the Duke of Camden to use her power until they can find a safe way for her to do so. But sometimes she simply cannot resist the urge to use her gift. On one such occasion she stumbles upon an ongoing robbery. And finds out that her uncle and cousin are planning to get to her so that she can go back to helping them robbing people.

Duke is furious, which is to be expected but it is also a good thing they are fore warned. Now they can hide Meg until the threat is gone. It is decided that she will go to Welsh and stay with Lord Badewyn for the time being. He is a recluse who avoids company as much as possible. considering the remote location of his castle it is not so difficult. When Meg's arrive at his castle he acts like a brute towards her. The reason is something he cannot reveal to her but its important that they don't get attached to each other.

The plot is very interesting and author's way of writing has made it even better. I loved it and would recommend to all book lovers. This is an awesome book which kept me awake late at nights.
