STORY: A man controlled by his desires…
Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London’s most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand— she’s spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk.
A woman haunted by her past…
Caire makes a simple offer—in return for Temperance’s help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London’s high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control—one that may well destroy them both.
A bargain neither could refuse.
REVIEW: I started reading this series only last month, and I started with the last book, ‘Sweetest Scoundrel’ which I loved a lot. And now after purchasing some of the books that I didn’t have, I am looking forward to reading them all.
The story was intriguing and the mystery kept me interested, but the pace was so-so. It would move fast and then drag a bit.
If I started the series with this book, I’d never read the rest. That said, I have to admit that the book wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t as good as the last one. I’m not sure why that is. It might be the characters. The heroine wasn’t as likable or fun and the hero even less.
Now that I own all nine books, I’m committed to reading them all, but I am hoping that the next one will be more to my liking.
Am I recommending it? Yes, but please try to read them in order.
