Overview

Anna Kronberg isn't precisely what one would consider a good Victorian gentlewoman. Disguised as Anton, she has a challenging career as a male medical doctor during the day. At night, she's an unflinching nurse who treats the members of her colourful and impoverished neighbourhood.

Garret O'Hare is handsome, charming, never without his set of lockpicks, and bleeding heavily from a gunshot wound. So he does what he does best: he breaks into the home of the neighbourhood nurse, hoping she'll save his life.

Anna, however, doesn't need anyone poking around in her private life. And she most certainly doesn't need a bloody thief collapsing into her bed in the dead of night.

The Lion's Courtship is the prequel and companion novel to the award-winning Anna Kronberg series.

I had read the other Anna Kronberg books and was not disappointed with this one. The story begins five years before the Devil's Grin and tells of how Garrett and Anna met, courted and became entrenched in politics of 19th century Victorian slums in their investigation of the disappearance of a prostitute. The attention to detail was incredible and even though I knew what would happen in the Moriarty series with Kronberg and Holmes, I couldn't help but root for Garrett and Anna. A definite must-read

Read the positive comnents and gave it a shot. This is a short story (about 150 pages), a prequel to A Devil's grin. I enjoyed it and will be reading the next book. Happy reading!

This book can stand alone even though it is the set-up for an existing series. I liked the characters and story development. The historical perspective on the London slums was a plus, though graphic warning is well deserved, and you can skim over if necessary. I am interested to see where this prequel leads, though I'm hesitant since apparently the remainder of the series is a Holmes/Moriarty mystery. Would love to know if the side characters in this story continue in the next.

The beginning felt like it jumped around time-wise so at first it was hard to follow. Overall it was a good read and was interesting. I would consider getting the next book.

This is the introductory prologue to the Devils Grin series. It adds greatly to the character development of those we meet in the series. J M Lydon

I need to read more! This is not for the faint of heart nor for the squeamish reader. But what a great story! I highly recommend this book and will be reading more of her books.
