Heart of Darkness

Heart of Darkness - Felicity Heaton I didn't want to put this down, was a great read and will be re-reading again.

A heart full of darkness who finally finds a light who could save him from losing himself completely, great action scenes with blood and gore, passion and lust! And also vengeance fueled by death, loving forgiveness. There is also heartfelt moments, deep loyalty, dedication and was well written.
Elise is much more comfortable in her guard uniform and a weapon in her hand then dancing or wearing dresses. She intrigues Aleksandr from the start but resists his advances and also doesn't want to experience loss again.
Aleksandr is focused on only one thing but when he meets Elise, he wants her and tries to convince her, he also becomes torn between Elise and his vengeance.
