This book is a precursor to Fired Up, as it is set in Victorian times. Crime lord Griffin Winters is the first ancestor of Nicholas Winters to show symptoms of the cerberus curse. Adelaide Pyne is a social reformist and comes to the attention of Griffin as a result of her brothel raiding. Both she and Griffin have mysterious pasts, which are gradually revealed as you go through the book. The interaction is superb, and the characters very endearing. Old friends including Lucinda and Caleb Jones (The Perfect Poison) turn up, and the ending was very clever, a neat solution to a tricky problem. The last book in the series is Midnight Crystal, set in the futuristic world of Harmony.
There is good interaction between the two main characters in Burning Lamp and Lucinder and Caleb Jones also feature, as do a couple of other characters/families out of previous books. The book is a fast paced historical romantic suspense with lots of action in it. I enjoyed it and am now looking forward to the one set on the planet Harmony.
That said, it is well written, the cast are predominantly suited to bring the title to its conclusion and yes, there is a good dollop of old fashioned romance that will weaken a number of fans at the knees. It's cleverly developed and will all in please many readers enough to keep them glued for the third part of the series, Midnight Crystal.
