Book Description

The London rookeries are slums, rife with criminals, and shunned by the upper crust.

But someone there intends to murder one of England's greatest leaders, and Marcus Kane, Lord Chadwick, will follow every clue, even into the bowels of London's underground. But he can't find his way alone.

A partner is required.

Fantine (Fanny) Delarive is perfect. She knows the slums better than anyone, has survived its labyrinth alone for years, and knows every criminal lurking in every dark corner.

Then, the investigation detours the pair into the bright ballrooms of the ton.

And Fantine fits in here, too.

Which changes everything.

Lord Chadwick knows a woman of Fantine's ilk is entirely unsuitable for him. But she's infinitely more exciting than any well-born lady he's ever met.

Now much more than an acquaintance with the independent, self-reliant Fantine is required... and it must end with nothing less than marriage.

MEET JADE LEE:
Jade Lee, a USA Today bestseller, has two passions (well, except for her family, but that's a given). She loves dreaming up stories and playing racquetball, not always in that order. When her pro-racquetball career ended with a pair of very bad knees, she turned her attention to writing. An author of more than 30 romance novels, she's decided that life can be full of joy without ever getting up from her chair.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Pleasant Surprise 28 April 2013

Nice to stumble over a Regency romance with a difference - and a rather unusual heroine. Very enjoyable read. I'll be looking out for more from this author in future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Intriguing 9 May 2013
By Debh
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I was not sure about this book at first but decided to try it as I am not a huge fan of historical romance, but I soon got involved in the many adventures of Fantine. There is lots of humour along with romance and intrigue and I found it difficult to put down until I finished it. A very enjoyable read.

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful 5 May 2014
By ImReallyAnElf VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
So badly written, and with such unlikeable characters and unlikely plot, that I couldn't finish it because it set my teeth on edge.

4.0 out of 5 stars fun 21 April 2014
By Kizz

This was a lovely story. The hero and heroine were both nicely complex people, and the plot, although a bit silly, was gripping enough to read in one go.

Plots and intrigue, the lords and the poorest of the poor, all mixed together to make an excellent story. Good author.

5.0 out of 5 stars So Entertaining 5 Mar. 2014
By Jackcie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed this book, the descriptive writing put me in each scene as if in a film. It was very funny in parts but also you could feel so much for Fantines position. I will certainly look forward to reading more from this author.
