Lord of Lies (Fallen Ladies Series #3) by Amy Sandas

"A dark hero, strong-minded heroine, danger, intrigue, simmering sensuality and a few Dickensian twists...[Sandas] puts a fresh spin on tried and true plotlines, touching readers' hearts and minds."—RT Book Reviews, TOP PICK!

Determined to save her older sisters from ruin, Portia Chadwick turns to the mysterious mercenary known only as Nightshade for help...and in his arms, discovers a whole new world of thieves and cutpurses, danger and passion.

Portia knows she'll never have a life of adventure. But when a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger—and unexpected passion.

Dell Turner grew up in London's back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society's elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful young lady, he doesn't anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation...or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She's as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can't bring himself to turn Portia away... even if it means risking her life.

"You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel."
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. "You are not alone," he said.

The 3rd book in the series was just as great as the other two!! We've basically covered this story 3 times, but Sandas keeps it fresh with every new addition. I loved learning who Nighshade was and how he ended up helping Portia's family. The chemistry between Dell and Portia was read hot and their bantering had me laughing out loud. I'm sorry to see this series end, as it has been one of my favorites! I'm excited to see what Sandas comes up with next!

This is a unique series with three sisters. In the first three books, each sister has an intertwining story giving unique perspectives to the same time span. So having read The Untouchable Earl #2 I found this book extremely interesting from Portia's viewpoint. The whole series to date is handled very well. Dell Turner fascinates me. Everything about him is unique and refreshing. He isn't a typical main male character and this adds to his mysteriousness causing this reader to fall for him. Also, his rough edges and intriguing personality add much needed depth to the plot. I do like that he is from the other side of the tracks making his current lifestyle admirable. Portia really cracks me up and her character adds flavor to this book. There are times I want to laugh at how her mind thinks and how Dell reacts to her but I really love her frankness and how intelligent she is. I wish more women were as determined and free thinking as she is. Portia's sisters are prominent in this book and seeing their reactions from Portia's eyes is fun and interesting. Also seeing their personalities without being in their head like the other books it quite amazing. I give this 4 STARS for being fast paced and unique.

This is the 3rd book in the Fallen Ladies series and I enjoyed it! The 3 books run concurrently. This is Portia, the youngest sister’s story. When her sister, Lily, is kidnapped, Portia goes to the infamous Nightshade to find her. Nightshade is Dell Turner’s moniker. Dell grew up poor and is determined to better himself. He is doing very well as an investigator, using many disguises. Dell normally works alone, or with a few of his men, but Portia is determined to help him find her sister. He reluctantly lets her help if she follows his orders. Surprisingly, Portia is good at disguising herself and getting information. Lily returns home safely (see book 2), but there are other dangers lurking. While we might expect the danger to come from Mason Hale, he may not be the only danger. No spoilers from me, but I can recommend this one. Thank you to the publisher for giving me an ARC. They did not ask or require me to write a favorable review. I liked this book!

Book 3 in Amy Sandas' Fallen Ladies series was just wonderful.  Passionate, adventurous, emotionally gripping, and a just plain wonderful story.   I loved it.  I think book 3 is my favorite in the series so far. The chemistry between Portia and Dell was fantastic.  She was such a strong female character who was well-developed.  The plot was strong and the conflicts fit the story line.  It coincides with the same timelines as book one (Emma's story, Luck is No Lady) and book two (Lily's story, The Untouchable Earl), so you revisit their stories a bit but with a different perspective.  The author doesn't lose clarity, and details from all three plots are not lost. They merge and play out well side-by-side. This was a great story and I highly recommend the series.

I thought that this was a very interesting historical romance. I picked up this book largely because of the cover. Isn't it gorgeous? I had never read anything by Amy Sandas before but I thought that the story sounded interesting so I decided to give it a try. I haven't read any of the previous book in this series and thought that this book worked well as a stand alone novel. I really enjoyed this story. I really liked the characters in this book. Portia was quite the character. She was really outspoken and could be demanding when it was required. She was very focused on helping others and was incredibly brave. Dell lives a very interesting life. He seemed to know how to handle just about any situation. Dell and Portia really made a great pair and seemed to be very evenly matched. This was an exciting story and there was a whole lot going on in this book. Portia and Dell first meet when Portia and her aunt hire Nightshade to find Portia's sister who has been kidnapped. There are questions that need to be answered and Dell is the man for the job. The pair work together on another related operation which turned out to be rather tense at times. I did think that the book had a bit of a slow start but once it got going the pace really didn't let up. This book had some really unique aspects. I liked reading about all of Dell's disguises and how he was able to do the work that he does. I can really understand why Portia was intrigued by what he does. I loved the fact that there was a bit of humor woven into the story. The chemistry between the pair was very well written. I liked the secondary characters in this book as well. Portia's aunt was really interesting and I would love to know her full story. I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. This was a really wonderful story that held my interest. I hope to read more from Amy Sandas soon including the previous books in this exciting series. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley.

'Lord of Lies' by Amy Sandas this is the Third Book in The "Fallen Ladies' series. This is the story of Portia Chadwick and Dell Turner. I have not yet read the other books in this series...but I do think I would have enjoyed this one more if I had. Portia is trying to save her sister and looks for help which turns up to be in the form of Dell. Dell seem pretty stubborn in his feelings for Portia but love does win in the end. This was a spy type of romance that had some exciting parts. I liked the secondary characters too...and overall liked this book. I will not have to go back and try to read the other books to see what all I might have missed.."My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."
