Library JournalIt is indeed the underbelly of London, where the greedy rich folk collide with the poor of the darkest streets and where Nellie is set upon by a murderer, only to be rescued by handsome doctor Julian Darke. Scarred for life and presumed dead, Nellie doesn’t let that stop her from learning the truth behind her vicious attack. Julian is linked to Nellie during their search for justice, and despite the amazing odds against them and a path fraught with difficulties, the two share a passion that is undeniable.
Verdict The limited cast of characters gives this short novel a sharp focus on the mysterious events occurring around Julian and Nellie, allowing the fast-paced, gothic-tinged story to take hold of the reader. A dash of steampunk with a taste of lust makes this an intriguing tale, perfect for historical romance readers. The romance is sexy but not overbearing or crude; a perfect weekend read for the thrill-seeker.—Marie Burton, Rockwall, TX
