Currently Reading - Dark Temptation: A Novel of Blackheath Moor by Allison Chase
Exiled to Cornwall, Sophie St. Clair knows that something is wrong in the village of Penhollow. Mysterious lights, phantom ships—are smugglers once again plying their illegal trade? Or have the spirits of long-dead pirates returned?
The answers will lead her to both danger an desire, as the tortured Chad Rutherford, Earl of Wycliffe, returns to his family estate near Blackheath Moor. Will the spirits of darkness hold them both forever—or can Chad and Sophie vanquish the evil and claim their future together?

Ms. Chase is also now one of my favorite writers (though I've only read 2 of her books!). She does gothic great! The atmosphere is almost like a character. Chad was introduced in the prior Blackheath Moor novel. He's quite tortured because of his own actions in the past, and he seeks to make amends. And Sophie is the perfect one to help him do it. Lots of action, a very hot relationship, redemption, mystery and the atmospheric moors makes for a wonderful story.
