Is it true love...or is the allure just another dimension of the Georgian's embrace?

A man with a mission...

Paranormal investigator, Devin O'Rourke, is drawn to Isabel the moment he sees her ghostly image in a picture. While searching for proof of her existence, Devin finds himself in another time, danger lurking around every corner.

A woman in need of saving...

Eighteenth century, Isabel Savol, is on the run. With help from a friend, good fortune finds her sheltered and managing the construction of a house. When a handsome Irishman appears on her Georgian's worksite one day, everything she thought she understood about reality vanishes.

Untapped desire ignites between Devin and Isabel as they struggle to stay one step ahead of the time-warping house caught in Calum's Curse and the werewolf determined to finish the legacy it began.

My Thoughts
Having been introduced to Devin as the light-hearted tender day to Leathan's intense and brooding night in Victorian Lure; I was tickled pink to get the chance to read him in his own story by way of Georgian Embrace.
Just as in Victorian Lure, the setting involves a beautiful home, shifting time periods, a mysterious and beautiful woman but...
unlike Leathan's story, instead of a vamp there is a baddie of a furrier sort after Isabel.

That's right people.  This one's for the werewolf  lovers.

Once again Sky Purington manages to transport readers through time and space with her imaginative sojourns through the looking glass and in to the world of Romantic Fantasy.  Having read the first of her offerings in this series, I have had to revise my labeling of her work as Paranormal Romance.
The reason for this being that the characters that this author pens are reminiscent of the fairytales  of childhood in tone and setting, though the content is clearly adult.

Ok...back to the story.

Ever the romantic, Devin finds himself on the hunt for the beautiful Isabel after she appears to him in a photo.
After searching for her, he finds her (or should I say her ghost) in the house that his cousin Andrea just bought.
That is when things really start to get interesting.  I can't give too much away, but let me just say that I thought that the romance between Leathan and Dekota was hot, but they have nothing on Devin and Isabel.
This story makes it really clear who the dark horse and the white knight are and it is very easy to pick a side, whereas in Victorian Lure the playing field was a little muddy and you had to wait things out a bit to to see who was who.
There is also a lot more magic in this story compliments of wizards and warlocks.
That's right, everything I said before and magic too.

I am curious to know if Andrea is going to get her own book in the series.  She has been in the first two books and I would love to see a tale woven around her.
