Pierce Langdon, Viscount Westfall, is mad. His uncle had him committed to Bedlam. The Duke of Camden had him released because Langdon has an unusual psychic ability and is useful for his Order of the M.U.S.E. Pierce can hear the thoughts of those around him. It is the duty to protect the Crown from psychic attacks. Lady Nora Claremont is the mistress of a man that the Order is targeting, but once she meets Pierce, she realizes she wants him. Nora is the courtesan with the heart of gold, though a broken heart due to her husband's death and parents disowning her. Can Pierce mend her heart?
I loved the twist on the historical with the psychic abilities of the Order of the M.U.S.E. Pierce was my favorite type of hero - the tortured hero. Nora was a woman that didn't think she deserved love and was surprised to find it in Pierce. I thoroughly enjoyed this novel and loved the twists and surprised that were revealed.
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
