5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting and Romantic, 23 Jan. 2003
This review is from: Lady of Desire (Mass Market Paperback)
This is the forth book in the Knight family series and is just as good as the others. This one is the story of Lady Jacinda Knight and Billy Blade who you may remember from Lord of Ice.
Jacinda the only daughter of a scandalous women noted for her many lovers is determined not to follow in her mother's footsteps but that does not mean that she will marry where her family tells her to. She decides to runaway. However things go wrong when she is robbed and lead into an allyway in the streets of London. There she wittnesses a brutal street fight and comes face to face with the well known scoundrel Billy Blade.
Blade has lived half his life on the streets and has never seen anything as beautiful as Jacinda. He is drawn to her against his will but even theifs have honour and he knows that dispite her protests he has to return her to her family. However once she is gone he can not stop thinking about her and walks stright into a trap set up by his enemies. Thiefs and criminals fate is normally to hang but he knows only one way out and that is to make a devils bargin. He must now enter Jacinda's world against his will and dispite thier past Jacinda decides to help him fit in. But can he win this lady's heart or is she still to far out of his reach.
The first half of this book was brilliant. I loved the discription of the rookery life in the dark streets of London. Blade was the leader of one gang even when leaving the rookery he was determined to kill his rivel. The second half of the book was more what you expect from historical romance showing you the glittering world of the ton. I like Gaelen Foley's Lady of Desire as it show you a different side to London in the early 1800's. She doesn't seperate the two worlds of the rich and poor but blends them togetner to make an exciting and romantic tale.
