Overview

Freedom – that is what Lilly Linton wants most in life. Not marriage, not a brood of squalling brats, and certainly not love, thank you very much!


But freedom is a rare commodity in 19th-century London, where girls are expected to spend their lives sitting at home, fully occupied with looking pretty. Lilly is at her wits’ end – until a chance encounter with a dark, dangerous and powerful stranger changes her life forever...



Enter the world of Mr Rikkard Ambrose, where the only rule is: Knowledge is power is time is money!

I’ll confess that I’d not heard of this author or series until the author contacted me, via my blog, and invited me to read and honestly review his book - and that’s just what I’m very happy to say I’ve done. I’m so glad he got in touch as I found this an intriguing story, set mainly in Victorian London. Lillian (Lily) Linton is smart yet naive, outspoken yet shy, serious but funny, a person of contrasts. Orphaned, she and her sisters have been brought up by their Aunt and forever missing Uncle. Her aunt has the intention of marrying off the siblings to nobility to help raise her own standing in society but Lily strives to achieve independence in an era where this is definitely not the norm The male lead is Mr Rikkard Ambrose, he’s a strident, cold, opinionated, determined, brash, domineering, powerful and convention flaunting man, a rich business man who is used to getting things done how, when and where he wants without question. The interactions between the two leads are laugh out loud hilarious at times. The politics, espionage, behind the scenes business dealings, mystery, intrigue and danger keep the reader enthralled from the very start. It is a romance, too, but there is a highly appropriate slow build to it and the adventurous escapades are definitely to the forefront of this brilliant novel with a Victorian era setting. The characters, good and evil, are superbly portrayed, making them easy to relate to. The mainly London based settings are emotively portrayed, helping the reader feel the ambience, be that noble or dangerous. The plot is well developed with interwoven strands helping to pull everything together, developing the readers comprehension and knowledge of events. It isn’t a factual novel and never claims to be, so some artistic licence is taken with a few historical references, but these don’t detract in any way from the story and are totally understandable. I found the whole story an enthralling read, one that I was totally immersed in and didn’t want to leave. The ending is something of a hiatus, one that leaves me desperate to know what happens next in this riveting saga! Once again, many thanks to the author for inviting me to read and review his novel which I have no hesitation in highly recommending to anyone who enjoys well crafted historic adventures, filled with fast paced adventures and mystery as well as a touch of romance.

I read this book at the recommendation of my daughter. Yes it's a long book. But you get hooked that when it ends it's a surprise. I lived the humor and was very entertained. Not happy that it ends on a cliffhanger. But can't wait to see what happens next.

This book, is one of the best books I have ever had the absolute pleasure of reading. The minute I turned to the first page, the minute I read the first sentence I was entranced and found myself spending hours upon hours in the night just grasping at the adventure and excitement this amazing work of fiction brings me. The way the words flow between characters makes this story so natural and it makes me fall in love with them with every chapter I read. Lily is the epitome of a brave, independent, bright heroine that I find myself looking up to. She doesn't take no for an answer and always says what's on her mind and she has to be my favorite part of the whole book. Sir Rob, aka Robert Thier, does the most amazing job of bringing these characters to life and giving the readers exactly what they want. He deserves so much credit for all of his books, those in this series and out, because he makes not just a story but an experience for all of his readers. - a thankful and entranced reader P.S. This book just gets better every time you read it. I've read it 12 times. ;)

Let me start off by saying I never write reviews. I found this book on the website Wattpad and fell in love with it's characters. It is hands down one of my favorite series I've ever read and usually describe it to people as kind of Indiana Jones adventure-ish with a slow building romance. I truly hope this author gets the recognition he deserves for writing such a wonderful series, which is why I finally wrote my first book review.

I usually shy away from any story that takes place in or near the Victorian age. The flowery vocabulary gives me a headache and the only books I liked that were written or based in that era were Sherlock Holmes and Dracula. However, when I started to read this book I was pleasantly surprised by the somewhat light tone of the book, as most "Victorian" books tend to be dark and dreary or rely heavily on descriptions of landscapes or surroundings. This book, however, has loads of action, sarcasm, and realistic characters. Though I did find that there are some Victorian influences, obviously to make the story more realistic, the writing style is very modern. There was never a dull moment where I felt like putting the book down. The book keeps you engaged until the very last page. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone, along with any other Robert Thier story.

I had almost given up on original books until this one. I cried laughing, and read it over and over again. With the wittiest characters I have ever met, Storm and Silence will be your new favorite.

In one of my favorite scenes in this book, Lilly Linton, dressed as a man because women do not yet have the right to vote, stops outside a polling place to give advice to a stranger about a house he was thinking of buying in her neighborhood. The man, businessman Rikkard Ambrose, is so impressed with this young man’s willingness to help and give good advice, offers him a job. No, really, he forces the job offer on Lilly. She takes his card and kind of shrugs it off, after all, she is off to vote! She walks in the door of the polling place and doesn’t have a clue what to do, but somehow bumbles her way through voting. Then she makes the mistake of curtseying, which of course is not something a Victorian era man would do, and promptly gets arrested for illegal voting. She’s cuffed and hauled off to jail, waving gaily to Mr. Ambrose while being marched off, saying “See you Monday!” This one scene sets the stage for a delightful romp through Victorian era London, and the beginnings of a rather tumultuous relationship between Mr. Ambrose and the young woman/man that he will only call Mr. Linton, even when it’s obvious she is a woman. This novel was so much fun! I really got a feel for the era and the difficulties women went through for equal rights. I also liked how Rikkard Ambrose was kind of an anti-hero. He was devilishly handsome, of course, but seriously gruff and kind of a control freak! He spent a good portion of the book trying to get Lilly to quit the job, but when he finally accepts her (although still calling him Mr. Linton) they become partners, trying to solve the mystery together. I really enjoyed Lilly’s exuberance for life and her need to be seen as an equal. Something that all women would identify with and enjoy reading. I laughed out loud at the great dialog between she and Rikkard, and the 1100+ pages went by pretty quick! Beware the page count if you’re a slow reader, but I think it’s totally worth the time. ❤❤❤❤❣
