Product description

Product Description

All her life, Lady Isabel Colven has followed the path laid out for her. Her future holds a dutiful, passionless marriage, and she’s content…until the exotic and compelling Lord Rukh Hayle threatens her maidenly reserve. Rumor paints him as a wife-murderer; desire tempts her to look past his aura of danger.

Rukh refuses to let his family’s curse kill a third bride, but Isabel awakens the Raven within him, compels him to take her to wife—and to bed—despite the secrets that live under his skin.

Their union arouses a curse, entangling Isabel in an erotic tug of war that can only end in her destruction. There is no escape for either of them. Not from his family’s shadowy history. Not from demons imagined and real. And not from the choice Rukh faces to save his bride from a fate worse than death

Warning: This gothic contains heady kisses that lead to ruin, passionate sex on a desk chair, a mysterious husband who may be a murderer, a cursed family of raven shifters, and an unspeakable evil hidden in the closet.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Reading the Paranormal Review 18 April 2017
By Kelly Rubidoux - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Gothic, seeimingly-doomed love meets a curse that one one lady won't let stand in the way of her happily ever after. *swoon*

I really did enjoy this one. Dark and moody with plenty of hints of danger and despair. Well, the despair wasn't really hinted at. It was pretty much hanging out for everyone to see. If they knew where to look.

Annnnnyway. Isabel and Rukh don't have it easy. Between the rumors circulating about his previous wives and the meddling of his family, it looks like Isabel is the next to be offered up as a sacrifice to the dark secret the Hayle family is hiding in the manor. Except it turns out Isabel isn't one to sit idly by and let bad things happen to her. She fights back. WITH KNOWLEDGE.

I appreciate that in a lady.

Highly enjoyable with just the right amount of Gothic intrigue to keep me excited to turn the page and see what was going to happen next. *thumbs up*

2.0 out of 5 stars Stars for the Service 5 December 2011
By Geisele V. - Published on Amazon.com

The stars are for how quickly I got the book out.

But really, this book sucked! I've read a lot of books in my time, and I love most of em. Heck, I can even appreciate a cheesy Checkout line Romance novel (like in the grocery store, those cheesy ones by the checkout stand), but this thing made me want to burn it.

The story is so silly, and I was actually annoyed with Isabel that she was so damn needy. I get that it's supernatural and all, but seriously, could she have looked any more stupid? The romantic scenes were sorta creepy in a way and kinda gross.

Go read something like The Juliet Spell or the Love At Stake novels. Or if you like paranormal stories with a REAL STORY behind them, check out Lynsay Sands' Argeneau Vampire books. All of those authors are much better than this piece of poop.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bluebeard as a Romance? Yes it works! 15 November 2009
By Lexie @ For the Sake of Reading - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I knew immediately I wanted to read this. Aside from the gorgeous cover, the synopsis really drew my attention. As did the Samhain warning. Then I went and read more about it over at the author's blog and saw that it involved Bluebeard...and I just sort of spazzed a little bit. The novel lived up to my expectations (and the warning XD).

Isabel is hands down one of my favorite romance heroines. When a girl's mindset has her thinking "She would dress herself, suitably impress her mother with her new station and then rid the world of one incubus, named Bluebeard." (pg. 50, pdf) after learning her husband's family's deep dark secret (and being sex'ed up all night long) you have to love the girl. She doesn't spend time moping or bemoaning her fate. There are problems in her marriage, but she was determined to find some way to fix them. To put it succinctly--she puts her fear to good use by using it to galvanize her to fix things.

Rukh (pronounced 'rook') is very, very alpha male. He mentions, more than once, that he has trouble keeping his 'beast' under control as a rule and now with Isabel he seems to have almost no control whatsoever. As the reader we know why, but it takes him a little longer to catch on. I do kind of wonder at his way of showing Isabel affection, since he does more harm then good by being with her, but Isabel isn't entirely blameless. She pushes against the safety restrictions he places upon her and when he erects new ones she pushes even harder.

Rukh's family, with the exception of his nephew Christopher, are possibly the most selfish, egocentric people I've ever read about in anything and why he wants to help them at all was beyond me. I can only blame blood sings stronger then rational thinking. They also use underhanded means and like to keep secrets. Unfortunately Isabel's family isn't much better, so they are matched in that.

Passion and affection are evident in everything either of them do. Even when circumstances are so tense that I was worried for their sanity, they didn't give up. Isabel's strong will and practical nature was really what saved them in the end I think. Bluebeard, in here he is a wife-killing incubus, not a wife-killing pirate, was pretty much as depraved as they come. May he rot in whatever hell he deserves.

My only question was in regards to Christopher and Sheila. Without spoiling anything, I did not understand his need to protect her. Was it just plain old male chivalry? He was obviously a good fellow, he proved that half a dozen times, but he was bound and determined (to the point of suicide) to save Sheila and I didn't understand why.

In the end, Drake gave me a mighty fine re-imagining of the Bluebeard legend and more than that an enthralling romance as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forbidden Chamber 12 July 2010
By mnix - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Lord Rukh Hayle is everything that Lady Isabel Colven does not seek in a husband. He is mysterious, dangerous, and rumored to have killed his two former wives. Her body and heart disagree the moment he touches her. Will her lust for him allow her to see past the exterior and recognize the truth?

The Raven inside Rukh immediately recognizes its mate in Isabel and compels him to make her his in every way. Now he must protect her from a family curse that has claimed the others before her, and in order to do that, he must make some difficult decisions. Can he sacrifice the one thing he longs for in order to keep her safe?

The Forbidden Chamber by Ella Drake is an extraordinary tale filled with lust and danger. This is the first time I have read a shape-shifter story that was not wolf-related and I have to say I was not disappointed. The bond between Rukh and Isabel is consuming and passionate. The family curse was a good twist and I loved that Isabel was featured as having a key role in securing a future for Rukh and herself. Overall The Forbidden Chamber is definitely a must-read.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Forbidden Chamber is great! 20 May 2011
By P. Burgett - Published on Amazon.com
"Your life is forfeit if you open that door."

All her life, Lady Isabel Colven has followed the path laid out for her, content to look neither left nor right for excitement. Her future holds a dutiful, passionless marriage to some nice young man, and she's content...until the exotic and compelling Lord Rukh Hayle threatens her maidenly reserve. Rumor paints him as a wife-murderer; desire tempts her to look past his aura of danger.

Rukh refuses to let his family's curse kill a third bride, but Isabel awakens the Raven within him, compels him to take her to wife--and to bed--despite the secrets that live under his skin. That lie is locked in the darkest corners of the manor, waiting to be unleashed. Their lusty union arouses the curse, entangling Isabel in an erotic tug of war that can only end in her destruction. There is no escape for either of them. Not from his family's shadowy history. Not from demons imagined and real. And not from the choice Rukh faces to save his bride from a fate worse than death...

In a time where a woman is ruined for kissing a man out of the marriage bed, Isabel Colven can't resist Lord Rukh, his charm, his magnetism draws Isabel. When a kiss suddenly goes terribly wrong for a young woman who first kiss leads to marriage within hours, Isabel's whole world is changed.

But what she hopes is a marriage fit for a lady, she's suddenly thrown into a world that is dark, and filled with demons. One in particular that can kill her.

I loved the book, I'm not really into historicals much, but this book caught my attention from the first and kept it. It's filled with romance, suspense, and a really wicked demon..hell bent on capturing his victim in the most wicked way possible.

Take the time to read this book. You'll enjoy it. Ella Drake is a great writer, who's imagination sparkles all thru the pages of this book.
