She calls herself Helen of Troy, and she is beautiful. She is in disguise to recover some letters for her beloved mother. She is very well born and strictly brought up and in a situation totally foreign to her.

Will Jones is the son of one of the most famous and beautiful courtesans in London. He has been a soldier, a spy, and a Bow Street Runner. He is charismatic, arrogant and dangerous.

Will Jones has gotten a tip that his greatest enemy is going to be auctioning off a virgin at his brothel this evening. Disguised as a French vicomte he gains entrance and wins the auction of a young woman dubbed Helen of Troy. She obviously is a virgin and a well born one also, but she refuses to tell him who she really is and is determined to go back to the Half Moon Street house to get the letters she promised her mother she would retrieve. Those letters are more than just love letters, and Will’s enemy, March, is more than willing to kill to keep them.

Will and Helen are one of the most evenly matched pairs that I have encountered. Despite their wildly different upbringings, they are both brave, bold, and determined. They are also both loyal to those they love, even Will, who has a severe case of middle child syndrome. He feels inferior to his brother, Xan, the Saint, and his missing brother, Kit, both of whom get more attention from their beautiful mother. The plot is totally absorbing and an intriguing look into another side of London life. There are few instances of Ton life and many of the seedier underside. The subplot involving the missing youngest brother is also engrossing and bodes for a thrilling third book of the trilogy.
