“magnificent... a fast-paced and seductive treasure.” – Publishers Weekly (Starred Review & Best Summer Books pick)

A 2017 RT Reviewers' Choice Award Nominee for Best British Isles-set Romance!

Eva Leigh launches a seductive new series that sizzles with the dark secrets of London’s underworld...

Years ago, the Duke of Greyland gave his heart—and a princely sum of money—to a charming, destitute widow with unparalleled beauty. But after one passionate night, she slipped from his bed and vanished without a trace. And just when he’s given up hope of ever seeing her again, Greyland finds her managing a gaming hell. He’s desperate to have her… until he discovers everything about his long-lost lover was a lie.

In truth, Cassandra Blake grew up on the streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a mark—to be fleeced and forgotten—but her feelings for the duke became all too real. Once he learns of her deception, however, the heat in his eyes turns to ice. When her business partner absconds with the gaming hell proceeds—leaving unsavory investors out for blood—Cassandra must beg the man she betrayed for help.

Greyland wants compensation, too, and he’ll assist her under one condition: she doesn’t leave his sight until her debts are paid. But it’s not long before the real Cassandra—the smart, streetwise criminal—is stealing his heart all over again.

The chance to read another series by Eva Leigh was too good to pass up: her ability to create characters and situations that explore the vastness of London society, and not just the tonne makes her a favorite of mine. In this story, we are introduced to two very different characters who are light years apart in birth. The Duke of Greyland (Alex) was born to the title, and takes that responsibility very seriously. Perhaps a bit too seriously as after his one divergence from the straight and narrow led to his being relieved of a large sum of money, a beautiful woman and his heart. Now, he’s reserved and guarded, having firmly lodged a stick up his backside. His friends, however, are convinced he is retreating from heartbreak and have come together to jolly him out of it with a trip to the newly opened gaming hell. Cassandra Blake was raised in poverty, spent time in debtor’s prison before her father’s death, and learned to survive by her wits and the careful tutelage of a man who taught her the confidence game. Successful and even a bit angry at those who have everything without seeming to notice or care for those who have less, she’s been successful and mostly unidentified until now. For Greyland spots her, the ‘widow’ he’d lost his heart to that night – and the game is on. Particularly when Cassandra has a run of bad luck and a clever twist that brings her to the place of mark, not trickster. Oh this was fun – surprisingly difficult to like Alex wholeheartedly at first as he was SO uptight, but as he allows himself to recognize his feelings, and starts to share with Cassandra, he demands that you embrace him…. After all, he is just wanting love. And Cassandra: while the whole scamming people to survive was uncomfortable, as her history unfolded combined with the fact that she is a woman in a time when options are severely limited, she becomes sympathetic. Especially after she is placed in the place of her marks, and realizes just how dispiriting and destructive her cons had been. With a touch of mystery tossed in as Cassandra’s mentor steps up to threaten, and a surprisingly dirty talking hero once this slow burn romance starts to spark, I couldn’t help but enjoy the book. If you want something just a bit different, with a heroine that you can’t help but enjoy and appreciate despite her past, this is the book for you. I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.

Eva Leigh has outdone herself this time! From Duke Till Dawn is an awesome romance about redemption. And this time, the woman is the crook! Cassandra Blake is a con artist and she managed to hoodwink the Duke of Greyland. Fast forward to a few years later, she meets the Duke again at a gaming hell. One that she owns with her partner. Then her partner runs away with the money and now she is in a bind. She turns to the Duke for help and he assists her. I absolutely enjoyed this book. I love that the heroine is the con artist and I love that she is the one that needs redemption. Alex, the Duke, is not really a true alpha hero but I did enjoy him. Of course, Cassandra stole the whole show! I thoroughly enjoyed seeing an antihero in We also get to the underbelly of London and a few interesting characters. I am really intrigued as to where this series will go and I am definitely going to watch for it. From Duke Till Dawn is an awesome start to the series! Definitely worth the read!

'From Duke Till Dawm' by Eva Leigh is Book One in "The London Underground" series. This is the story of Cassandra Blake and Alexander Lewis, the Duke of Greyland. Cassandra played the part of a widow to make a mark of Alex. They had a quick affair Cassandra got what she needed and disappeared. Now just a few years later, Alex still looks for Cassandra. When he goes into a gambling hall he finds her there. Cassandra is working there and Alex goes forward to meet her again. When Casablanca's partner takes off leaving her needing help she turns to Alex. But Alex is hurt to learn he was just a mark for her and makes a bargain with her that he will help but she has to stay with him. Cassandra had a really upsetting past and she was a very strong heroine. Alex was hurt but love overcomes allot. This was another great book by Ms. Leigh. I received this book in exchange for an honest review

Absolutely loved! From Duke Till Dawn had a slow start, but once Alex and Cassandra finally revealed themselves to each other--and the reader--I just couldn't put the book down! Those two were just magic together, and the fact that neither one of them believed that they were lovable...and that they couldn't be together...ack, it just slayed me. I was fairly certain they had to work it out somehow (isn't being able to do whatever the heck you want supposed to be one of the perks of dukedom???) but geesh, Ms. Leigh took us right up to the very end wondering about their HEA. Totally worth it, though. And if Alex's friends Langdon and Ellingsworth are going to have their own books too? I. Am. So. There. Rating: 4 1/2 stars / A I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

As with every book I read by Eva Leigh, the mains characters are absolutely compelling with fully fleshed out backgrounds providing context for why they make the choices that they do. I love how she balances their viewpoints. Usually, I dislike the rich man/poor woman dynamic. But here, the heroine maintains equal power with the hero and is not a victim of her circumstance. I love how unapologetic the sexuality is; no shy virgin meeting with a rakehell Duke here. The best part for me was the ending. Not just between the hero and heroine- but with the heroine and her past. It was satisfying to read about forgiveness in a way that felt real and holding accountable the people who harmed the heroine sealed the deal. I will read everything Eva Leigh publishes, because that satisfied feeling is not something you can get just anywhere.
