In 1819 Earl Tristan Knight panics when he learns his feisty sister Emily has vanished somewhere in London. He needs help to locate her from someone who knows the streets of the slums; rumors about haughty Viscountess Deidre Wilks hint at her childhood in those same mean streets where he needs a guide. A desperate Tristan confronts Deidre who reluctantly agrees to escort him through the worst neighborhoods of the city.--- Pretending to be his servant to provide a cover, Deidre walks the streets as if she were born to them, which in a sense she was. As they continue to search for the lost sibling, Tristan admires his companion¿s courage and spunk. Soon he falls in love with her; she reciprocates but tries to hide her feelings as she trusts no one with her well being or her secrets other than herself.--- Placing Oliver Twist in the Regency with the Rag Tag gang, Kimberly Logan writes an invigorating unique historical romance that hooks the audience the moment that Tristan confronts Deidre to help him find his sister. The story line is fast-paced and action-packed starring a refreshing female protagonist who takes charge of the situation rather than wait for her ¿partner¿ to do so. Ms. Logan has written a fantastic brisk Regency romantic suspense that sub-genre fans will devour in one energizing read.--- Harriet Klausner

OK

Entertaining read. Predictable romance. Likable good characters; despicable bad ones.

    Bravo!

    As a history teacher, I enjoy books that accurately reflect a time period without becoming a history lesson. Ms. Logan has accomplished this! Her characters reflect the struggles of social class and worthiness that most Americans have not experienced. I enjoyed every page!

    I liked that it was not a typical Regency rom of only balls and such, and there were some good potential character conflicts to work thru. But then it just got too repetitive, slowing down the story where it just plotted along with predictable results. By the end I just wanted to know what would happen with the folks in the slums who were the most interesting!

    Hello

    A melodrama of a romance in true fashion of Penelope Pitstop, Dudley Do-right, and Dick Dasteredly. A couple of explicit sex scenes.

    Great Historical Romance

    The best historical romance I've read in a long time. I fell in love with all the characters. Hard to put down. I hope to read more by this talented debute author. Has much romance, mystery, and an interesting twist.

    CONSIDER YOURSELF ADVISED

    I NEARLY BROKE INTO THE SONG 'CONSIDER YOURSELF ONE OF THE FAMILY' FROM THE MUSICAL 'OLIVER'--WHILE READING THIS BOOK. THIS IS A TRUE OLIVER TWIST STORY. THERE ARE A FEW SECRETS BUT EVEN THEY DON'T WAIT UNTIL THE END TO SURPRISE YOU-THEY ARE REVEALED RIGHT AWAY.ON A SENSUAL SCALE IT IS A 4-5 NOT BAD BUT NOT A SCORCHER.
