Overview

The London rookeries are slums, rife with criminals, and shunned by the upper crust.

But someone there intends to murder one of England's greatest leaders, and Marcus Kane, Lord Chadwick, will follow every clue, even into the bowels of London's underground. But he can't find his way alone.

A partner is required.

Fantine (Fanny) Delarive is perfect. She knows the slums better any, has survived its labyrinth alone for years, and knows every criminal lurking in every dark corner.

Then, the investigation detours the pair into the bright ballrooms of the ton.

And Fantine fits in here, too.

Which changes everything.

Lord Chadwick knows a woman of Fantine's ilk is entirely unsuitable for him. But she's infinitely more exciting than any well-born lady he's ever met.

Now much more than an acquaintance with the independent, self-reliant Fantine is required... and it must end with nothing less than marriage.

Meet the Author

Jade Lee, a USA Today bestseller, has two passions (well, except for her family, but that's a given). She loves dreaming up stories and playing racquetball, not always in that order. When her pro-racquetball career ended with a pair of very bad knees, she turned her attention to writing. An author of more than 30 romance novels, she's decided that life can be full of joy without ever getting up from her chair.

    Really?

    I'm surprised this book received so many positive reviews. It was not well written. There were several mistakes in phrasing in the narrative, which resulted in the author literally contradicting herself from one sentence to the very next. This was a nice change from the average historical romance plot, however the book (less than 300 pages) dragged and it took me several days to finish it because it was, in fact, so very easy to put down. The author tried to add interest by including a lot of action, however, the 'action' was so unrealistic it just seemed to make the book a bigger muddle than it already was. Also, though the author did seem to try to bring at least some historical accuracy to this work she simply threw it out the window when it didn't suit, and then brought it back in when she felt like it, which was more than a little annoying. I'm actually a litte disgusted by the epilogue, as even in today's standards announcing, at your wedding, that you intend to sell off the gifts and then taking up a collection for even more would be considered very vulgar. And we are meant to believe that this behavior is being fully accepted at the wedding of a future duke (or whatever the title was meant to be). Absolute rubbish. I will not be reading any further books from this author.

    No Way..........................................................

    No Way.................................................................
    He is supposed to be some sort of retired master spy but is really more of a bumbler.  He keeps saying no one will kill him because he is a peer.   Halfway through the book I wanted to off him  just for saying that.   She is some kind of superwoman undercover  barmaid /aristocrat who is miss self confidence---except for the time she is insecure .   Unfortunately most of the time she is insecure.   Her father loves her but sends her out on deadly missions.  The street urchins are little criminals with hearts of gold.  Every character in this book has a split personality. The wedding epilogue is absurd.  In fact the whole story is absurd.  Waste of time.

    Very Good!

    A nice twist on the regular storyline! It keeps you in suspense, and not easy to figure out the ending!

    Fun

    Enjoyable and fun to read. Kept me engrossed in the sizzeling duel between fantine & marcus. Colorful contrast of the lives of the rough & tumble rookery & the wealth & luxuries of the aristocratic regency. Laughed at the wit & stupidity of the author's well drawn characters.
