Darklove by Claudy Conn

One goal consumes Chazma Donnelly: find the dark sorcerer who murdered her parents. When the trail leads her to Ireland, she takes a job cataloging a private library. But she doesn't expect to find a manor house that eerily echoes one in her dreams, or an employer whose touch awakens a savage darkness within her.

The attraction between Chazma and Lord Jethro McBain is volatile, but darkness surrounds his aura. Chazma doesn't trust him, even though it is his voice she hears in her sleep, and his touch that sizzles the blood in her veins.

As Chazma's investigation widens, a series of local murders shows the killer knows of her obsession. Will Chazma's need for revenge take her from the edge of evil into a black pit where she can no longer find herself? Or can she find love in the midst of darkness?

Reviewer: Dolce Amore
After the tragic death of her parents in New York, Chazma Donnelly, Chaz, finds out that the one responsible is from Brionn, Ireland. So when she gets an offer for a job there, she takes it.

She discovers that the he was a warlock, a descendent of Fae who uses black magic. And she decides to make sure that he will have a painful death, although her feelings for her boss, Lord Jethro McBain, are threatening that decision.

Beside a few tiny mistakes like…
He stopped the car in the middle of the road.
He parked the car in the front courtyard, and a few moments later, he watched as she hurried up the grand staircase to her room.
But it's not mentioned that he started the car.

…I think this book could have been an outstanding one (I love the idea of the book)… if the storyline wasn't focused so much on Chaz. Because it is all about Chaz, her feelings, her thoughts, her everything and I believe that the characters were created to give more richness to the storyline; which didn't happen in this case and made this book boring and full of too many details. Also, I think that Ms. Claudy Conn rushed the relationship between Chaz and Jethro, which made it seem a bit fake and forced. I only give it 3.5 stars
