About the Author
During her frequent travels to London, Liz Carlyle always packs her pearls, her dancing slippers, and her whalebone corset, confident in the belief that eventually she will receive an invitation to a ball or a rout. Alas, none has been forthcoming. While waiting, however, she has managed to learn where all the damp, dark alleys and low public houses can be found. Liz hopes she has brought just a little bit of nineteenth-century London alive for the reader. Please write to her at LizCarlyle@aol.com.

Read the first two reviewers then buy. All I can do is re-iterate all that has been said, because it has been said so well.
To protect a lady from danger in the Park, Max De Rohan kisses her senseless ........ Lady Catherine Wodeway knows that is something no true gentleman would ever do without the proper introduction, not even to save her life!
His dark and dangerous good looks, together with his brooding maleness somehow lead her along to forget that she is in fact a Lady.
A 3 *** Star read, not as good as some of the others, but nice to tie up a few names in the whole picture. Lovely to see George Kemble again .... sadly not up to his usual delicious sadistic persona, but a girl can hope for the future!!
Maximillian "max" de Rohan, works for the Home office and is investigating a murder. While Lady Catherine is a widow from the country come to spend the season in London with her Aunt. They meet on a foggy morning in Hyde Park and there lives are never the same again. This book is filled with suspense and mystery. The relationship between Max and Catherine is passionate from the beginning both being wildly attracted to each other. Max, having had a bad experience with a lady of the 'Ton' in the past and thinking himself beneath Catherine because he is a 'policeman' is reluctant at first and does his best to deny his feelings. Catherine on the other hand couldn't care less about his status and falls head over heals in love with him!! This book was such a refreshing change from some of the books I have read in this genre. The hero, dark, brooding,strong and sexy, but kind and caring. The heroine, beautiful and intelligent but doesn't play any games and is not afraid to admit to her feelings and desires.
I can't wait to read the other books in this series!!!
The book seemed slow to start but it was just setting the scene. I was soon hooked. The passionate romance between Lady Catherine Wodeway a young widow from the county and Maximilian de Rohan 'Max', a police man is played out in a story of Murder, suspense, secrets and lies.
This story is different because unlike many romances it is not set always so much within the world of the ton but of the working and middle classes as well. I would recomend this book to any one who enjoys a bit of mystery in their romance
