Face of the Maiden - Emma Wildes. The curtains moved with a rustle of stiff fabric as a figure slid out of the concealing folds. The uncertain and dim illumination made his face a mask of warring hollows and angles. His brows were arrogant wings and his mouth a line of smiling satisfaction. He said coolly, You’re late, madame.

Her arrival stirs something deep and dark. Perhaps even deadly . Celia Fairmont's new home on the wild coast of Cornwall is a sprawling ancient mansion steeped in history and deep, dark secrets. From the first night her dreams are plagued by images of clandestine meetings with a handsome, reckless lover. The man in her visions looks disturbingly like the oldest son of her new guardian, the Earl of Ashbourne, but there the resemblance stops. Phillip Leighton is practical to a fault and too preoccupied with estate business to even notice her presence. Phillip Leighton does not have time for illogical romantic fantasies about his father's young ward. The very lovely Miss Fairmont is unsophisticated and innocent-not at all suited to be the next Countess of Ashbourne. And besides, he is practically engaged to a titled widow. But erotic dreams disturb his nights, and by day she preoccupies his thoughts, and he finds himself fascinated against his will. Phillip can't seem to keep Celia out of his head-or out of his arms. When a series of puzzling accidents begin to happen, he knows with a chilling certainty that their future is on a collision course with the past when forbidden passion erupted into untold violence. Warning: This title contains explicit sensual love scenes, sexy ghosts, violence, some bad language in a polite Regency way, and a devilish wayward rake or two.
Dont_Wory
I read this years ago but came across it as a "new release" here on Amazon. It sounded familiar and I checked in my library and there it was. I was disappointed that one of my favourite authors hadn't written a new book but it set me on a journey or re-reading her books so that I could post/update reviews. I do this for my memory's sake as well as to give honest reviews. Anyway I did remember this one because it was so unusual at the time. The h and her sister are taken in as wards by the H's family, who are second cousins, after their own father's death. The main characters bump into each other and there is an immediate attraction. The H is courting another "suitable" woman as his wife. In their dreams however they are lovers. It appears that that two of their ancestors had an affair years ago and are reliving their relationship through the H and h's dreams. I found it a compelling and enjoyable story.

Usually I am not a big fan of ghost stories but in Emma Wildes novel, Face of the Maiden this supernatural theme works because the spirits are very closely tied to mortal characters.

Celia has finished school and has moved in with her second cousin the Earl of Ashburn who became her guardian after her father died. Also living at the estate is Lord Ashburn's son Phillip next in line for the title. Celia is entranced by Phillip as soon as they meet. She has dreamt of him before and they are very passionate dreams.

Phillip has also shared the same dreams of Celia. He is attracted to the innocent, gentle woman. Phillip is a reserved man unlike his younger brothers.

Celia discovers that she greatly resembles a past antecedent. When she sees Caroline Leighton's portrait it is like looking in a mirror. Seems Caroline lived two hundred years ago and had a scandalous reputation; she left her husband to run off with a lover.

The dreams Celia and Phillip share are really the life of Caroline and her lover. The dreams are well told and the reader can feel the longing that Caroline and her true love have for each other. In fact, their story is a better one that Celia and Phillip's. Whereas Caroline and her lover are boldly passionate and adventurous, Celia is shyer and Phillip is withdrawn. Celia and Phillip spend much time apart in this story not so for Caroline and her love who spend almost all their time together through Celia and Phillip's dreams.

This story has an interesting plot with the ghostly lovers visiting the mortals in their dreams. I was very intrigued with them, more so then with Celia and Phillip who had little interaction until the later part of this novel.
JUST DO IT
I believe this was an early book for author Emma Wildes. I enjoyed it very much as I like Ms Wildes' books and have read quite a few of them. Her writing is rather sensual but also has good character studies. Regency is my favorite type of romance so I usually stick to authors of this period. If you like the Regency period, I would recommend Ms Wildes' books. I especially liked this one (Face of the Maiden) because there was some mystery and going back in time.

I don't usually like ghost stories but this on had the ghost relying on the humans to tell their story. It was a great story as well, it was two stories in one really. The main characters were good, Celia and Phillip and Catherine and P??. Don't want to give that part away.

If you've read one Emma Wildes, you have pretty much read them all. Typical bodice rippers, but they are easy to read and you don't need to think too hard!
Clever
What I loved most about this book was the cover! It provided a complete picture of the heroine which assisted me much through the story. The story itself was wonderful! Emotionally involving as well as adventured without getting too confusing. Wonderful book!

This was my first time to read Emma Wildes an I was not disappointed . This is one for my book shelf . I couldn't put it down an it kept me on the edge of my chair .. thanks
I generally enjoy Emma Wilde's novels but I did not enjoy this one. I have tried reading it several times but to no avail. I do not like the mix of ghosts and romance. I would love to see Ms Wildes re-write this one as I think it has potential.
