well the shame that someone might feel due to years of abuse and I loved how real Dorian s anguish seemedRead this for Dorian if you like broken men But also read this for Farah if you like strong women with exceptionallyiving hearts Thanks to my شرح جامع مثنوى معنوى girl Joanita for sending me this book Woman you totally know my type I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my reviewFrom the moment Farah wipes the blood from Dougan s hands they are bound to one another two outcasts in an orphanage On a fateful night Dougan violently protects Farah and they are separated cast out into their fates It is not until seventeen years later that Farah learns what befell her childhood friend Dorian Blackwell the Blackheart of Ben More villainous fiend and king of the underworld kidnaps Farah and claims he is there to protect Dougan s Fairy Leaving most unsaid but what is heartbreakingly clear in the painful spaces between words Dorian recounts his experience in jail with Dougan to Farah how they banded together to try and survive and how Dougan would tell stories about Farah to the other boys Dorian plans to makeood on the deathbed promise he made to Dougan about eventually finding Farah and making sure she was safe What Dougan didn t know was that Farah had her own painful past she was running from and Dorian feels he must restore Farah to her rightful place in society There are lies half truths dangers and love but most importantly a feeling that destiny won t be denied This is the first book by Kerrigan Byrne I have read it will definitely not be my last The Highwayman took me by surprise with its sweeping emotional romantic story Byrne s writing had a way about it that I felt like I was walking the streets of London with Farah and Dorian everything is described but not overly in a way that bogs you down with details she was a master of making you feel through showing not telling The overall details of the story with the characters and their actions leans toward a darker tone but there is lightness to the story that springs from our main character s relationship for balance Dorian and Farah have a certain spark between them that is at turns playful light deep emotional burning and heavy Their contentment to be around one another colors their dialogue at times with a lightheartedness that makes their rowing love believable and investing to read #Farah S Journey From The Orphanage To #s journey from the orphanage to position at the Police Headuarters was taken with Dougan in mind with every step Farah very easily could have been written as a saintly martyr but instead she is shown to be while inherently oodhearted also a steel spined survivor she s believable Dorian s background and dark attitude could have easily been written to make him a Beauty and the Beast caricature but instead he is Riding Hard given depth of emotion He is single minded in his pursuit of taking care of Farah but with a yearning stubborn streak and desperate desires of a man still locked in an abused boy s mindset of protection mode he s believable When together the author doesn t come out and tell us they want each instead it s felt by the reader in everylance Dorian Arabian Challenge gives Farah that isn t seen and every touch Farah reaches out toive that is never felt by Dorian There s anger desire hurt hunger lies and love all swirling between Farah and Dorian together they re believable Dorian and Farah are clearly the center piece of the story as they should be and the structure of the story supported that with the beginning setting up Dougan and Farrah s relationship the middle introducing Farrah to Dorian and creating their relationship and the second half delving into the mystery and intrigue while bonding our couple If I were to express any complaints which trust me are minor it would be that Dougan s childhood origins were a bit murky and that Farrah s endangerment from her father s lawyer Warrington could have been fleshed out in regards to how I didn t really feel the danger from Warrington as he was too much to the peripheral of the story Byrne s secondary characters did an amazing job of adding to the story and world she created for her characters Dorian s house full of men who were all forged in the fire together from prison again could have come off as bears with hearts of old caricatures but instead are iven just enough individual thoughts and emotions to make them memorable with adding to the story instead of feeling tagged on after thoughts or show stealers Even while putting me through the wringer with Farrah and Dorian Byrne was still able to sueeze some heartbreak out of me for Dorian s man Walters and Farrah s friend Gemma honestly I dare anyone not to shed at least a few internal tears over their uiet moment in the kitchen at the end This feeling of connection to minor characters was another reason why I felt Byrne knocked this one out of the park Byrne s writing style reminded me a little bit of Amanda uick s historicals the sentences and character s actions can come off at times light and loving but you will suddenly find yourself wrecked by the hidden emotional depth and the overall story somewhat reminded me of an updated 21st century A Rose in Winter by Kathleen Woodiwiss There are a couple hotter rougher moments in this but ultimately the story is dominated by the searing emotion between our couple If you are a historical romance fan then this is a must read for you The second in the series looks to be about Dorian s friend and assassin Christopher Argent and based on the Der Verlorene Koffer: A Graded Reader for Beginning Students glimpses weet of Argent in this book I m pre ordering 35 "StarsThis Book Is Low Key "book is low key The Count of Monte Cristo but it s also a second chance love story A nice enough book for when you don t know what to read. Ee her dead Dorian makes Farah a scandalous proposition marry him for protection in exchange for using her secret to help him exact revenge on his enemies But what the Blackheart of Ben More never could have imagined is that Farah has terms of her own igniting a tempestuous desire that consumes them both Could it be that the woman he captured is the only one who can touch the black heart he’d long thought dea.
