The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart (Magic Most Foul #2) by Leanna Renee Hieber

The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart (Magic Most Foul, #2)
For Natalie Stewart, a normal life has never seemed so far away. Her only solace, Lord Jonathan Denbury, is wanted for murder. To clear his name, Denbury must return to England and assume the role of his demon doppelganger. But Natalie begins to doubt his true motives, especially as a new gentleman begins whispering in her ear. Natalie and Denbury may be able to visit each other in their dreams, but they can't escape the darkening shadows. Amid spontaneous explosions, friends turned enemies and dangerous secrets revealed, there's still a demon who has Natalie's scent, and someone is trying to resurrect the ultimate evil.

Excellent, delightfully creepy, and darkly romantic! I loved this book!

I have to say, I was immensely worried when I saw the title to this book. "Twisted Tragedy" doesn't sound like a book where the main character gets to be happy with her incredibly hot true love. But, after reading it, I understand why the title is as it is. Natalie's life has become a twisted life and it seems like a tragedy to her. The complex network of those who work in the Society, those who might join, and those who fight against it is truly twisted and everything that Natalie has to go through definitely seems like a tragedy. But, worry not, Natalie and Johnathan still have their sweet romance, despite a few hiccups along the way.

Natalie has changed from book one to book two. She's both stronger and more vulnerable. She handles everything the Society throws at her and does her best to overcome it. But confusion of the complexity of her situation leaves her at loss a few times. However, she still handled it admirably and grew as a character. 

We get to know Johnathan much more throughout this book. We see his strength, his determination to protect everyone that he can and help as many people as he can. And as we see him working as a double agent, he shows himself to be clever and devious when he needs to be. Add to that we see him act as a proper gentleman and you have a recipe to make me adore him all the more. I adored Johnathan even more by the end of this book. And Natalie and Johnathan's relationship deepens. They come to know one another better and their fledgling love becomes more real. I really felt that depth of emotion between them. And I thought it was so sweet how the two of them saved each other constantly and were always stronger when they were together. Their relationship just made me smile.

The plot of book two is as thrilling as book one. Never a dull moment and constant surprises in store, The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart will keep you hooked all the way through. The ending left us with a sweet note as Natalie and Johnathan determine to have one normal day of courting in between all the madness. And there is a nice lead in to book three that has me itching to find out what happens next.

The Twisted Tragedy of Miss Natalie Stewart is just magnificent. I adored it!
