Overview

He owns three shipping companies, a diamond mine, and his own castle.
He knows Portuguese, Hindi, Mandarin, and Morse code.
His assets net thirteen million.

Everyone thinks Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, the financial prodigy dubbed "The King of Threadneedle Street," has it all, but he wants the one prize money can't buy: his childhood sweetheart.

Alysia Villier can't say if it's worse having Andrew's father in control of her inheritance or Andrew in control of her heart. He's ruined her for any other man, but she simply can't give in to him. She knows he's destined for great things—marrying a courtesan's daughter would jeopardize everything he stands for.

Keeping Alysia out of trouble and away from eager suitors becomes a cross-continental quest for Andrew, and he won't be stopped by his old-fashioned family or the disapproval of the ton. After all, he's a man with the power to play newspapers and investors like pawns, tumble world markets and incite riots...but can he win the biggest gamble of his life?

    ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!

    Alysia and Andrew's story was so wonderfully written, you will have a hard time putting it down. This is not your normal bodice ripping, Regency Historical Romance. The story of these two main characters takes place over years which gives the author the ability to show just how their love for each other started and grew over time. It is sweet and sensual but never over the top. This author is a breath of fresh air and has a knack expressing a persons emotions. A must read! I can't wait to read more from her!

    So very, very good!  This book made me realized what so many other novels are missing... a real story!  I found myself thinking "Oh, here is were she will wrap up the story"  "no, here is where she will".  And instead of taking an easy way out and ending the book where most others would, Moriah Densley gave me a real story, a full length story that didn't end with the characters happily married off after a few weeks of back and forth - instead you follow the characters as they go through their lives, the ups and the downs, the fun and the responsibilities.  Even better, is that after (spoiler alert!) the happily ever after, we still get to follow the characters!  We aren't left wondering "what happened?" and instead the story line makes it to a full conclusion!  I was just so happy reading this book and following along and falling in love with the characters, every single one of them! Please do yourself a favor and pick up this book and enjoy a full bodied story!

    As with the other two stories I’ve read by Ms. Densley, I was captivated by her characters and the depth of their emotions. The ups and downs of their class distinction struggles, my frustrations with Alysia’s refusal to acknowledge the truth of her relationship with Andrew, and Andrew’s keeping of secrets from Alysia, kept me glued to the pages of this story from beginning to end. It was all so real to me and my emotions got so tangled up with Lisa’s and Drew’s that my impatience got the better of me at times and I wanted to shake some sense into them, wake them up! Ms. Densley’s writing skill is what gets me so deeply involved in her stories, as if I’m living in them. Her books are not to be missed by fans of historical romance.

    Very compelling, extremely passionate without heavy and explicit

    Very compelling, extremely passionate without heavy and explicit sex scenes. A very sweet and tender love story with all the backing of a strong and beautiful friendship that I simply could not put down. Sure wish Sophia, her first book, were on Nook!

    more from this reviewer

    Alysia Villier, daughter of the infamous courtesan Violet Villie

    Alysia Villier, daughter of the infamous courtesan Violet Villier, grew up in the home of her mother's lover, Lord Courtenay. Seemingly a
    member of the family, Alysia was aware of the huge difference between herself and the others. After the death of her mother, Alysia's
    situation becomes more awkward and she realizes her future will most likely take a similar path as her mothers. Even though she has
     loved Andrew forever, she knows she must leave her childhood home. Her passions must go unheeded for Andrew can never be hers.

    Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, future Marquess of Courtenay, now home from Oxford, discovers his feelings for his childhood friend
    have only grown stronger. They have evolved into the passions of an adult man. Determined to have Alysia, he must defy not only his
     parents, the beau monde, and the parade of acceptable women his mother forces on him, he must also battle Alysia herself.
      
    Of the books I have had the privilege to read by Moriah Densley, (any I could get my greedy hands on) The King of Threadneedle Street
     is by far the most encompassing and layered book in the series. While the other Rougemont books were wonderful and made me
    smile, The King of Threadneedle Street is a saga. While retaining her trademark wit and keen eye for authenticity, Moriah takes the
    reader for a journey that spans the European continent. I could actually feel the characters evolving into the most worthy of the title
     hero/heroine.

    At the beginning of the book, Andrew, was headstrong, and slightly immature. By the end of the book, he is indeed a droolworthy man.
    His journey, I believe was the hardest, although he has his position in society and wealth, he develops strategies to win his lady love
    and almost topples England's economy. He transforms himself from a slightly spoiled aristocrat to a man that can work in the trenches,
     who can withstand all who oppose him and who fully comprehends the meaning of love.

    Alysia had my admiration from the get go. Although young, and a tad bit naive, she is strong and determined to protect the ones she
     loves, even at the cost of her own happiness. She has the heart of a lioness and the wherewithal to ignore the slings and arrows she
     must endure because of her mother's legacy. By the end of the story she has learned to trust her own heart as well as Andrew's.

    The cast of characters in The King of Threadneedle Street is filled with favorites from the previous books, and were a very welcome
     addition to at times a tearjerker of a story. I loved the depth they added to an already compelling read. the romantic thread ranges from
    sweet to throw a glass of ice water in my face hot. Moriah manages to inject steam into the story without the overtly graphic sexual
    scenes so prevalent today. While I have been known to enjoy a raunchy book or two in my day, this book can please all readers of
    romance.

    I had the privilege to read Moriah Densley's new historical romance before
    its release! THE KING OF THREADNEEDLE STREET is a beautiful story of tenderness and passion! I honestly give her 7/5 stars! It’s a pure pleasure to read! A real beauty of words. A little gem to discover! Here is my review:
    It’s a beautiful historical romance set in 1871 England
    I discovered Mariah Densley’s books on a blog and I found her first book “Song for Sophia” amazing! To my surprise! Again, I read a beautiful story very well written. Her two charming characters will make you fall in love with them. Already, she has become a great writer. Ms. Densley has a talent that stands out. Andrew Tilmore, Lord Preston, owns three shipping companies, a diamond mine and his own castle. But he also wants his childhood sweetheart! Alysia is the daughter of his father’s mistress and the daughter of an infamous courtesan. She learned the craft of courtesan from her mother but does not want to follow in her footsteps. She was, also, Andrew’s childhood sweetheart and was ruined by him for any other man. Alysia woks as a housekeeper, a lady’s companion but society sees her as a born to be courtesan and a mistress. She was also artist who loved to draw and paint. Andrew’s father was her guardian and in control of her inheritance. When Andrew comes back in her life, he realizes that he always loved her. His quest is to keep her away from other men. She sees him as a beautiful Gallic warrior and a dreamer. He will try everything to charm her into his life and to keep her for himself as a mistress or a wife. Without thinking of the consequence for Alysia, he let think his friends, that he had bedded her. To protect her, Andrew offers her his house, but she refuses. Andrew’s father, well aware of his son’s love for her, wants to get rid of her and offers to find, for her, another benefactor to marry. It seems, she has to choose between dissapearing or have a marriage of convenience. She has to find a way to stall until she gets her inhiritance. But, the sexual chemistry between Andrew and Alysia ignites into flames. I prefer not to reveal more and let you, the readers, discover yourself the intrigue. I highly recommend Moriah Densley’s book! She is an excellent writer and one of my favorite author! She knows how to write beautiful words full of charm, tenderness and seduction. So nice to read, that you cannot see the time go by. Moriah's books never disappoint me!
