After three years of waiting for Julian Alexander to realize they are destined to be together, Lady Piper Scott takes matters into her own hands. Because her gift as a healer has never done anything but distance her from the most principled man in England. A meaningless diversion as a medium, all done to gain a certain wandering viscount’s attention, backfires. As most endeavors have for a woman known in the ton as Scandalous Scott.
What’s a reluctant viscount to do when the woman he can’t have becomes the woman he can’t live without?
Julian Alexander, Lord Beauchamp, battled his way from the lowliest slum to assume his title. He carries not only a turbulent past but a mystical psychic gift that separates him from society. Honorable to his core, he is committed to protecting a community of outcasts with abilities like his own. He has no time, no place, for love. Or repeatedly rescuing the most outrageous, beguiling woman he’s ever known. Even if she needs his protection most—and he desires her above all others.
Seduction, intrigue and desire lead to an explosive passion…
Julian vowed to shield Piper from the deadly foes seeking to possess her powerful gift. Although he needs her help in controlling his own, the mix could be deadly. Soon what was once a simple agreement to work together becomes enchantingly complex as they surrender to a timeless love…

Overall it was a nice story but I thought a little long for the content.
Some interesting use of vocabulary – I liked the use of ‘antique’ words within a modern phrasing.
Clues were left for the next books in the series – so who was the boy they couldn’t save? And why did Flynn take it so hard? Flynn’s book is coming next .
Harbingdon is nice idea as a harbour but also perhaps the harbinger – foreteller – of a potential future – a sign of what is to come, both are hidden in the name – was this deliberate?
POF location 700. mention of a cardinal bird – in the UK. almost certainly not as they are extremely rare visitors, and the twitchers would be going mad. if it was one it would be an escapee from captivity. wouldn’t last long in the wild in UK.
