The Glass Butterfly

Availability: Ready to download

For close to a decade, twenty-five-year-old Felicity Lonsdale has masqueraded as a dowager almost twice her age—selling caterpillars to butterfly consortiums—enabling her to hide an ill-fated past while raising her late brother’s daughters.

Together, the three live on an isolated Irish estate bequeathed by a dying earl. When the earl’s estranged son arrives to claim his inheritance by threatening to expose Felicity’s true identity, she longs to pack up her nieces and run. But a ghostly secret within the castle’s turret holds her captive. Nick Thornton—a Roma viscount’s heir—is also captive. After a tryst with an investor’s wife nearly destroyed his family’s holiday resort, Nick forsook everything to elope with her. However, a tragic mistake at his hand led to her and his baby’s deaths. Refusing to turn to the family he shamed, Nick travels to seek the countess who once co-wrote a romance with his sister. There’s rumor of a special butterfly in her keep—a transparent-winged species with ties to the afterlife. Nick hopes to contact his dead wife and child, for only their forgiveness can free him. Upon his arrival to Felicity’s estate, Nick offers to help her defeat the earl’s son, on the condition she allow Nick to investigate her glass butterflies. Felicity agrees, though fears the closer he gets to the ghosts of his past, the closer he’ll come to uncovering her own. As Nick spends time with Felicity and her nieces, he realizes the mystery enshrouding this fragile countess and her castle is more intriguing than the ghosts he originally came to find. And perhaps putting his dead to rest and helping her do the same will be his true path to redemption.

    What a beautiful story!! I just knew I would like this one as much as the other two!! And my poor babies, Nick and Felicity!!! “We are two broken pieces. Perhaps together, we can find a fit.” The chemistry between the MC’s was perfect, and there’s still a gothic vibe and a cool mystery to uncover! Plus, butterflies!!! I wanted to hug Nick and tell Felicity it’s okay! The story was perfect! All I’m going to say is that I have to know Emilia’s story now! I can tell it’s going to be amazing!

    Of course I loved this one, I knew I would. I really liked Felicity. She’s so loyal and passionate and I loved how far she was willing to go for her nieces. Nick was just as dark and brooding as I was expecting. Their past is tangled up and the second time they meet is quite interesting and it sets a tone for the entire book. I really enjoyed reading them figure things out and both grow. Oh, and the chemistry and UST are both off the charts.

Oh, and the chemistry and UST are both off the charts. There’s a small cast of characters here, but it’s a good one. I especially loved Felicity’s nieces and their dynamic with Nick. Plot wise, it felt a bit slower than the other two. There’s a lot of build up before the reveals start to come and while they were satisfying layers, it was still sort of maddening. My main complaint is that there is a lot a lot a lot of miscommunication. Yes, it added some delicious tension, but I seriously wanted to shake both of them and make them have a full conversation without interruption. Full warning: there is talk of Felicity’s past as a courtesan and things that she was forced to do. There isn’t an actual rape scene, but there is some forceful groping and hints of violence. Overall, I was captivated from the beginning. I mean, Anita had me at “Nick” and she definitely delivered. I can’t wait to see what Emilia’s story brings. **Huge thanks to Anita for spoiling me rotten and letting me beta read**

    'The Glass Butterfly' is the third beautiful installment in a New Adult historical series and one that fans are going to love. The author is one of my personal favorites - I have never read a book by her that I haven't adored. This was another novel that held up to my hopes and expectations and then some.

The author is one of my personal favorites - I have never read a book by her that I haven't adored. This was another novel that held up to my hopes and expectations and then some. I loved every single aspect of this book. The setting was perfect - an isolated castle in Ireland where ghost stories spread like wildfire. It was a great backdrop for historical fiction mixed with a Gothic feeling romance. The characters were rounded and the plot was a perfect mix of romance and historical fiction. The author's attention to detail and vivid imagery made the story and characters come to life before my eyes. I felt like I was right there in Ireland with Felicity and Nick and I didn't come back to reality until I had finished reading the last word. The characters were all complex and realistic, especially our main characters - Felicity and Nick. I loved getting to know each of them on a personal level - it made connecting with them easy. Even though the author wrote the story in the third person point of view, which I normally don't like, I can see the reasoning behind her choice and it works for this book. I think it would've been amazing to have read the story from Felicity and/or Nick's perspectives, but it managed to capture my heart anyway. The plot wasn't wholly original or unique, but the author put her own twist on things to give it a feeling of freshness. There were some intriguing parts to the story - especially dealing with Felicity and Nick's pasts and their 'ghosts' and I really enjoyed getting to know about them and their lives throughout the novel. Another aspect I don't normally go for is obvious romance because it always seems to take over the actual plot. I think the author did a fantastic job of keeping things focused on the problems and obstacles the characters faced as well as mixing in a swoony romance that doesn't overshadow everything else in the book. It was a great balance, especially because readers going in know there's going to be a romantic element. I actually really liked watching the relationship between Felicity and Nick grow and change throughout the story. It felt natural and not forced or overly done. I very highly recommend this book (and the rest in the series) to fans of romance, historical fiction, supernatural fiction, and those looking to get lost in a long-ago Irish castle. Disclosure: I received a copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I've had the privilege of reading both previous books in this series early and the wait never gets easier! The Architect of Song was a masterpiece of fiction. I loved that book so much and will forever sing its praises. I also loved book two in the series, so The Glass Butterfly had a lot to live up to! When I read the synopsis of this book I was eager to see how Nick Thornton's story would play out. I loved him in The Hummingbird Heart and I desperately wanted to see his happy ending. This story follows Felicity, a maybe-45-year-old woman who lives in an Irish castle and raises butterflies, along with her two nieces following her brother's death. Although she keeps herself isolated in the castle, she meets with trouble when her dead husband's son shows up and begins threatening her. She also receives a surprise visitor in the form of Nick Thornton, whom she knows from her tragic past, and tries very, very hard to keep him at arm's length, but things don't work out quite as she'd planned. I adore both these characters so much! Nick, who I already knew from the previous book in the series, gets even better in this one. I loved getting to know more about him, learning his secrets and fears and desires. And Felicity, although she is infuriating and I wanted to strangle her over some of her decisions, is also a wonderful, strong heroine. I enjoyed watching Felicity stand up to the villain even more than I loved seeing Nick protect her against him! Both of these people have difficult backgrounds and, while it was difficult watching them together at times as they skirted around the truth, I appreciated seeing the process as they got to know and trust each other more. So let's talk romance. This third book is perhaps the most adult of this new adult series, and I thought it was wonderful! As I said, these characters have much more tragic backstories than the characters in books one and two. Both have had previous marriages that ended in tragedy and both have found it difficult to stop dwelling on the past. I thought it was perfect that A.G. Howard allowed these characters' romance to be a bit more mature. Their chemistry was also incredible, as is the norm with all romance that she writes! The setting, as usual, was amazing. Although The Glass Butterfly is set in the real world rather than a fantasy one, it was written in such a way that I could picture myself at the castle and on the grounds. In fact, I had a nightmare about the peat bogs showing up in my backyard after we'd had a particularly bad rainstorm! Which brings me to the plot itself. Something that I love about these romances as opposed to some others I've read is that they're so much more than JUST romance. There are so many other elements at play than just angst and kissing. I also loved the bits of the paranormal that are woven into this story. I can't say much without spoilers, but I found it to be unique and loved what it added. The Glass Butterfly had a lot to live up to and I'm happy to say that A.G. Howard absolutely delivered! Nick and Felicity's story was a fantastic third installment in this series and really sets up for book four without ending on a cliffhanger. I can't wait to get my hands on it! In closing, I'd like to leave you with my favorite quote from this book, spoken by the youngest of Felicity's girls to Nick, "What happened to your dog, Mister? He’s quite ugly."

    If you have followed me for awhile, you know that I am a big fan of this author, and I loved the first two books in this series: The Architect of Song and The Hummingbird Heart. This is a series, but it follows a family, and spans years between books. The first book's main couple are the parents of the main characters in the second and third books.

This is a series, but it follows a family, and spans years between books. The first book's main couple are the parents of the main characters in the second and third books. In this third book we have the son who feels as if he has done nothing but disappoint his family. That he disgraced them to the point they'd be happiest if he never returned. Nick is not only running from that, but also searching for a way to reach his dead wife and ask her for forgiveness. He intends to once again behave poorly by stealing what he thinks he needs, a rare type of butterfly, that will help him be able to reach those beyond the grave. The other half of the couple in this one is Felicity. She is the woman with the long white hair you see on the cover. Only she is not as old as she seems to be. She is hiding from her own past, and trying to keep her nieces safe from being separated with their own parents lost, just like she and her brother were separated when they were children. She will do whatever it takes to keep these girls from having to go through what she went through. The connection between the two is based on a past event that was intense, emotional, and life-changing. Once again this author has created a beautiful world, that she describes with such vivid language that you feel as if you are there as you read. I loved the idea of the butterflies, and also the little bit of science thrown in with old tales and quotes from classics, in this case, Shakespeare. The attraction between Felicity and Nick is also done well. You can feel the sexual tension between them, both in the way they can barely resist each other, as well as the humorous banter that pops up from the first meeting we read in the book. The characters are all well developed, and I really loved the youngest niece, she was quite amusing in her set ways of a young girl, and the questions she asked and the comments she made about what she saw going on around her. The mystery of what happened with the girls' father, as well as what he'd discovered that had led Nick to their door was drawn out in such a way that I was on the edge of my seat, trying to figure it out as I read. But in the end I was still pleasantly surprised at the creativity of how the author handled the whole situation, and the magical spin she put on it. I also love how a real family can be one that overlooks things, that is there for each other in the end, and how a bad guy might even have a slight bit of redemption, making every character truly human. Another great story from A.G. Howard. And I look forward to the fourth book in the series which will be sister Emilia's story. I have a bit of an inkling where it just might go. I can't wait to find out if I have guessed correctly, or if the author will lead me on another merry tale of romance and ghostly intrigue.

    Words? I have none. Feelings? I have them all. Every time I read an AG Howard book I am left ragged and wrung out.

The Glass Butterfly is the third installment in the Haunted Hearts Legacy and picks up the story of Nick. If you've been reading the series but it's been a while, super quick family tree recap (as of the end of The Hummingbird Heart): Juliette (married) Lord Thornton Julian (married - Willow) Nicholas Emilia And if you *haven't* read any of the series - GO. Now. READ. So what we knew at the end THB was that Nick was jealous of his (twin) brother's life and left and that he had lost his wife and that was the last the family had heard from him. Moving forward. I have been "with" AG Howard since Splintered. She as an uncanny ability to whisk me away to lands and places I could not imagine on my own. The characters she creates are complete. They are not without flaws; they are real. Despite the face that I clearly don't live in a castle in 1907 or in their world, I could completely relate to them on the most basic of levels. As the story builds and the tensions build between the characters I kept screaming at them to just come clean or to stop hiding their feelings, or let down their walls. Or times I wanted to reach through the screen (as it was an e-arc) and literally strangle someone). Or pick flowers. But now I want mouse's ears in my yard. :) As I neared the end, I started to slow down because while I really wanted to know how it all came to a close, I really didn't want to leave my new world and friends and the gorgeous words on the pages. I laughed. I cried. I yelled. I cried some more. I was super glad I didn't have a doctor checkup because my blood pressure might have been off the chart. My goodness. I'm super excited to continue this series and to always read more by Howard in the future. *I was provided an advanced e-copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    Okay, so I will read absolutely anything from A.G.

When I saw this blog tour pop up, I knew I wanted to take part; participating in blog tours makes me more disciplined about reading and forces me to finally pick up books I’ve been intending to read for some time. I am so thrilled to have been chosen to take part in the tour for The Glass Butterfly, because I don’t know how I was living without these stories in my heart until now! This is a series of four historical fiction / gothic romance novels featuring the stories of two generations of a family and the ghosts that inhabit their lives. It is not strictly necessary to read the books in order, and if only one of them sounds of interest to you, they can certainly stand alone. Personally, however, I am pretty rigid about wanting to read stories in order if they feature characters interwoven through the stories, and I *really* wish I‘d had time to read the second book before diving into the third. As it was, I was only able to read The Architect of Song before The Glass Butterfly, and I’m so glad I did, mainly because I just fell in love with Juliet and Hawk and Lord Thornton and the rest of the characters. I guess I would personally suggest at least reading the first book, because it features the story of the parents of the children featured in the next three books. However, your mileage may vary and it all depends on how much it matters to you to read the series out of order or not in full. Okay! That all said, I absolutely loved The Architect of Song and, I admit, when I finished it I was kind of thinking there was no way The Glass Butterfly could come close to the sheer perfection of that first book. Sigh... Why have I not learned by now to trust A.G. completely and without doubt?! I should not have had any concerns whatsoever, because she is one of the most talented, brilliant, masterful storytellers I have ever had the pleasure of reading. Nothing is ever rushed in her books; every story develops slowly and fully, with sumptuous detail and incredible character development. Those are my absolute favorite kind of books, where there is no skimping on language and detail and emotion and character formation (this is why I have never enjoyed reading the work of Ernest Hemingway, ugh). I enjoy shorter books, novellas, and even short stories, but books like A.G. writes are my absolute favorite (similar to those by George R.R. Martin and Sarah J. Mass, two of my other literary idols). As with The Architect of Song (and theSplintered series, if you’ve read it), you have plenty of backstory, detail, and time to fall in love with the characters, and even the locations, of The Glass Butterfly. These stories are absolutely immersive; with both books, which I read back-to-back, I barely came up for air! I felt like I was living in the late 1800s and early 1900s, visiting the graveyards and castles of England and sailing for the new world that beckoned, America. I felt like I was falling in love for the first time all over again, and I could visualize everything in my mind as if there were illustrations contained within the pages (sadly, there are not--but that would be awesome!). The Bronte sisters are quite possibly my favorite authors of all time, and gothic romance is my top choice when it comes to historical fiction, and I would put A.G.’s incredible Haunted Hearts Legacy series way at the top of any list of favorite gothic romances, right next to Wuthering Heights and Jane Eyre and The Tenant of Wildfell Hall and Agnes Grey. And that is just about the highest praise I could possibly give an author! I never imagined that I could love a series from A.G. as much as Splintered, but I have never been so happy to be proven wrong in my life :) I don’t feel like I can adequately convey the depth of my love for The Glass Butterfly and the Haunted Hearts Legacy series with just words...these books are an experience to be savored and deeply felt, like down in the depths of your soul. A.G. Howard’s talent is incomparable, and I *highly* recommend this series! Thank you so much to A.G. and Rockstar Book Tours for letting me take part in this tour; it has been too long since I have read a gothic romance, but I am once again reminded of just why it’s one of my favorite genres. If you’ve never read a book by A.G. Howard, my goodness are you ever in for a treat, no matter which of her incredible works you decide to pick up first! If you enjoy historical fiction, gothic romance, ghost stories, and love that transcends time and life and death, you are going to love the Haunted Hearts Legacy series! Rating: ALL THE STARS!!! I lament that I can only give 5 of them to this incredible book! **Disclosure: I received an e-ARC from the publisher for purposes of this blog tour. This review is voluntary on my part and reflects my honest thoughts and rating.

    Felicity will do whatever it takes to protect her family secrets and keep her nieces safe, even if it means pretending to be someone she is not and harvesting butterflies with unusual properties. Nick wants nothing more than to be reunited with this dead wife and child, the answer to his desire hopefully can be discovered in Felicity's butterflies. But when the two meet, there is recognition present as well as attraction, both unwanted emotions.

Nick wants nothing more than to be reunited with this dead wife and child, the answer to his desire hopefully can be discovered in Felicity's butterflies. But when the two meet, there is recognition present as well as attraction, both unwanted emotions. Can Felicity continue her double life and Nick find his cure without any conflict? It seems unlikely... I will admit that I picked up the first book in the series, The Architect of Song, because I was in love with the gorgeous cover and because the author. I knew A.G. from her YA fantasy books and I was not really even aware that Haunted Hearts Legacy was an adult historical romance, but I planned to read it anyway. Well, three books later and I really enjoy this series. Each book is a standalone romance and can be appreciated completely on it's own, but there are references and characters that show up now and then. But feel free to grab any in the series to jump into because you will not be missing out on anything and can completely enjoy then on their own. It has been forever since I have read a legitimate historical romance, so this was such a fun read to get into. I love the rules of society, the costuming, the time in general...it is so easy to get lost in the sweeping love and the romantic notions that seemed to come from this time period. if it weren't for the whole lack of indoor plumbing and medical advances, I would love to time travel to this world and experience first hand the people, mansion and lands that A.G. brought to vivid life. Oh and did I mention the magic and supernatural flair subtly woven into the story? This was such a great mix of romance, mystery and magic that was no way I could resist getting sucked into the pages. There was a lot of heartbreak split between both main characters, history that neither wanted to share or deal with, but they needed to open up about it to heal as well as find a new way to love. And while there were lots of moving parts in the book, love was the winning theme. There were a few moments where I wanted to shake the characters for their stupidity and closed off attitudes. But overall the dynamic between Felicity and Nick was filled with tension right from the start, making me wish ever so hard for the two of them to join teams and fight against all the forces out against both of them- instead of the solitary path that both were so set on. As a different note, the side characters like the nieces and the servants created such a great quirky family dynamic I could not help but be charmed- maybe one of the girls will get her own magical book later on... I highly recommend any book in the Haunted Hearts Legacy, each story a different king of supernatural magic-ish mystery that ends in romance, and will for sure sweep you away to a different world.

    I was really excited to finally read Nick's story (Nick is the twin brother of Julian from the previous book) along with Felicity's. Both of the characters had a very rough past but when they came into each other's life it was like puzzle pieces finally fitting together. I thought Nick was just perfect for Felicity and vice versa. Their romance was a delicious slow burn, just the way I like it. I also loved Nick's interactions with Felicity's nieces.

It really warmed my heart to read about it all. Another thing I feel like I just need to mention is that this story was set in Ireland. Some of my all time favorite books are set in Ireland so I really enjoyed reading another one that was set in it. It's the perfect setting for a spooky gothic romance. As always A.G. Howard managed to create a compelling story with her gorgeous writing and fascinating characters. Unlike the two previous books I felt like this one was unquestionably much darker, which is something that I loved so much. It all added so much more to the atmosphere of the entire novel. I've always been a sucker for darker stories so this was perfect for me. Overall, The Glass Butterfly was a beautiful slow building story and romance. I just couldn't help falling in love with Felicity and Nick. Their love story was one I was rooting for right from the start and I definitely wasn't left disappointed.

    I've read many books in my lifetime that have made me cry but I don't think I've read a book that made me cry from pure joy. I never write reviews but I had to because this book was so beautiful and so magical. I loved the first two books in the Haunted Hearts Legacy but this one was no doubt my favorite. This book featured two broken and flawed people who manage to find love and happiness with each other as well as realize that they deserve that love and happiness.

    I LOVED The Architect of Song. Loved it. So it's very disappointing to me when the follow up books are... basically porn with a little bit of plot. The Hummingbird Heart wasn't quite so bad.

What kills me is that there was so much potential to this story! We have two characters - one seeking redemption from the ghosts of his past, and the other longing so much for freedom from the secrets and scars of her past. That should be a knockout book! But it was 90% about their sex drive and the other 10% was actual plot. It was more the Haunted Libido than anything substantial. Nick even goes so far as to say something along the lines of "If only I could bed her myself, I could heal her of her demons." Not exactly that, but not far off. I'm not interested enough to go look for the direct quote. Can we just talk about how problematic just that single idea is? And he runs with that idea throughout the WHOLE book. This was so disappointing for me, especially since I don't particularly like reading sex scenes. I have never found one in any book that couldn't be lifted out of the text and the emotional impact remain just as strong, if not stronger. I figured, after Hummingbird Heart and given Nick's character, that sex scenes were going to be in this book, but I was not expecting the sheer amount of sex drive referenced. Like ALL THE TIME. I felt it completely detracted from Nick and Felicity's character and story arcs. Instead of concentrating on their mutual healing, it was about how much they wanted to have sex and how that was going to heal everything...? There was barely any build up of Jasper's storyline, the children were there to be cute and precocious and force Nick and Felicity into making certain decisions, and the ghostly finale that we've come to expect from this series was lackluster because [again] no build up. It read like an after thought, like A.G. Howard suddenly remembered there was a ghost to deal with and wrote a few paragraphs to appease the title. It was so uncharacteristic of A.G. Howard that I'm not entirely sure the excellence of her other books wasn't a fluke. I suggest The Architect of Song with all my heart, but if I could do it over I honestly wouldn't read The Glass Butterfly.
