Peek Inside The Madness of Lord Westfall

Pierce Langdon, Viscount Westfall, is mad. So they say. But he actually has a psychic gift. He hears people's thoughts, and uses his ability in service to the Order of the M.U.S.E. Now he's investigating a plot against the Crown, and the Lady Nora Claremont, a sultry courtesan, seems to be at the center of it. If he wasn’t mad before, Nora may drive him to it. Pierce knows just what she wants and what she's thinking. What Nora wants is Pierce...and what she's thinking could expose her as a traitor to the crown.

He thought he knew madness... until he met her.

Pierce Langdon, Viscount Westfall is mad. Everyone knows it. He fell from a tree when he was a boy and woke to hear strange voices. When the voices grow stronger as he grows older, his family commits him to Bedlam. But what he hears are the thoughts of those around him-a gift to be used in service to the Order of the M.U.S.E. Until he falls again...this time for a totally unsuitable woman.

Lady Nora Claremont hides her heartbreak behind the facade of a carefree courtesan. Viscount Westfall is the most confusing man she's ever met. He seems to know exactly what she wants...and what she's thinking.

Which is a dangerous thing, because what Nora wants is Pierce. And what she's thinking could expose her as a traitor to the crown...

The Order of the M.U.S.E. series is best enjoyed in order.

4.5 unexpectedly delightful stars. I love when you can't help but really like a book that you weren't expecting to more than just kind of like.

This story captivated me from the very beginning. Lord Westfall, fell out of a tree when he was a born and injured his head. When he awoke he could hear other people's thoughts.

I really enjoyed the first book in Mia Marlowe's Order of the Muse series, and I've been waiting for the second book to come out.

I don't get to read too many books that have a supernatural theme like X-Men, so when I found this historical romance series (last year?) I was extremely excited to say the least.  However, the first book was just ok and didn't leave me rushing to pick up the next one.  I'm thankful for Romanceo ...more

The Order to MUSE continues with probably my favorite character, Lord Westfall. MUSE stands for Metaphysical Union of Sensory Extraordinaires, and the group is reminiscent of A League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

A little Regency woo-woo? Yes, Please! I had fun with The madness of Lord Westfall. I always enjoy the characters that are deemed "mad" and hearing voices...definitely lands Westfall with that qualifier from his peers. Having spent time in Bedlam? Even more so.

I did feel like I'd walked in ...more

This is book two in the "The Order of the MUSE " series by Mia Marlowe. I have not read the previous book (The Curse of Lord Stanstead) so for me I found this to be a stand alone book.
