Death’s Lover: First Encounter by Scarlett Reed is a book for anyone interested in period pieces. Playing out in colonial-era America, we have Avaline Adams who is about to marry Viscount Charles Harmsworth, but who does not appear too keen. This is a marriage of convenience for him, and one of status and love for her. However, a tall dark stranger would soon change everything she knew. Niklaus Davenport shows up out of nowhere to attend the wedding in the guise of being the Viscount's nephew. Little does anyone know that he is Death in disguise. Avaline is torn between her two male suitors, one using her for his own gain and the other a welcome distraction from her loveless marriage. One night Niklaus has to save Avaline and break character, so she discovers who discovers what he is - the Angel of Death. What will she do with this information? How will this change how she sees Niklaus and what will happen to her marriage? It’s a real page-turner for anyone who loves Jane Austen's style of books.
Death’s Lover by Scarlett Reed had me turning pages almost faster than I could read them. The story was so inviting and had a touch of spice between the Viscount and his pseudo-nephew Niklaus. I loved how the Angel of Death was experiencing things for the first time. His description of how he ate food, how he breathed, how he felt after drinking too much alcohol. I enjoyed this short novel, which was a lot of fun to read and very sensitive in the lovemaking department. So many books draw you in with the promise of an erotic storyline, but in this case, it was well rendered. If this series is to be continued, I cannot wait for the next installment. The story was so detailed, especially the clothes, you could easily tell the era. It was so ably described that I found myself seeing red dresses and pearls. A must-read for anyone who enjoys this genre.
