    This is an engaging Victorian romantic suspense

    In 1877, now thirty-two, which is old age in his profession compounded by his enjoyment of all types of vices, Rory Jameson has spent years bringing thieves to justice. However, outside of London he stops his work temporarily at the request of his sister to visit his estranged dying grandfather to make a final peace. On the trek to his family home someone attacks and wounds Rory. Former toast of the Ton Winter Ashburn takes the wounded aristocrat to a cottage so he can heal. ------------- Winter remembers Rory as the rake who thought she was a fallen woman. Still she is attracted to her patient and him to her. As they fall in love, Winter worries her actions could cost her mother and brother plenty as the family patriarch her odious Uncle wants the half gypsy dead.------------ This is an engaging Victorian romantic suspense, which readers will enjoy from the first stolen kiss until the final kiss with a bit of a mystery and a lot of romance in between. The story line is character driven with a strong lead couple and a deep support cast. Fans will enjoy PASSION AND PLEASURE IN LONDON (and outside too) as neither Winter or Rory are ready for love yet both welcome it even as they hide it from their beloved.------- Harriet Klausner

    more from this reviewer

    Rory Jameson, rakehell with a dark past, makes a pass at a cloaked woman in a small town.

    She, in turn and unbeknownst, pays him back by stealing his wallet and papers. Furious (at himself, too) Rory tracks her with the intention of getting his property back. But he's distracted by two boys in the dark woods and waylaid by three men, and in the moment, Rory shoots and kills one man and is gravely wounded himself. What's more, his thoroughbred horse, Apollo, has been stolen. Winter Ashburn, the cloaked woman, blames herself for everything (she and the boys weren't supposed to be in town that night) and secretly takes him in and nurses him back to health. Who wants Rory dead? What's going on in this town? What is Winter's part in all this? The story is too dense and filled with secondary characters to be told straightforwardly in this review, so suffice it to say that Rory is the dying Lord Granbury's grandson and heir. The estate owes money to neighbor, the oily Lord Richly of Everleigh who wants: 1. All the land in the area; 2. His daughter Lavinia (Winter's cousin) to marry Rory instead of Trevor, the thought-to-be heir; 3. His niece, Winter (whom he raped when she was 15 and whose father he blackmailed and killed). Lots of things to unravel but not before Winter is imprisoned, Rory is kidnapped, etc., etc. But love and good people and influential higher-ups conquer all. Enjoyable.

    This book is the best!!!

    I loved this book. I couldn't stop reading it. Both the hero and the heroine were magnificent. It catches your attention from the first chapter.
