Rating: 4 Cups
Lady Sophia Afton is not like other women of her class. She spends her time pouring over criminal cases for the Bow Street Runners. She has even put off her long expected marriage to the Earl of Stonecliffe in order to make a study of criminal psychology. Truthfully, Sophia will do anything to uncover new leads in the longtime unsolved case of her mother’s murder.
Nicholas Bourne has travelled the world, fighting other people’s wars. Nothing has helped him forget the one thing he wishes he could have. But the woman he has loved since childhood is promised to marry another. Worse still, Sophia has been expected since birth to marry Nicholas’s older brother.
Now Sophia has come to Nicholas for help in pursuing a new and dangerous lead in her mother’s case. It will take everything he has to aid her while keeping her safe from villains who will stop at nothing to keep their clandestine organization hidden. Nicholas just hopes can give Sophia what she wants, without surrendering to the desire that burns like wildfire between them.
This is a well written story, with a fast paced plot that has a new twist at every turn. Nicholas is magnificent as a roguish anti-hero. He is the perfect match for a woman like Sophia, who is just a little too eager to rush into trouble. Readers will enjoy watching them fight an attraction a lifetime in the making.
