    Harlequin at its most gloriously non p.c., taboo, hot mess, bad or good, depending on how you choose to view it Sustained by CL s beautiful, elegant writing, it is an eerie tale of obsession, not so much between a man and a woman, but between a man, a woman, and a spooky, old, haunted, castle perched above one of those idyllic English villages that only CL can conjure up with this muc

    Charlotte Lamb s original stepbrother romance novel Yep Good old Charlotte wrote about the stepbrother taboo romance LONG before many others even thought of it Readers either hate this or love it A few share a middle perspective, because I suppose we do need some minds that are willing to be politically correct while simultaneously appreciating that the novel is in fact quite entertaini
