Release Date: July 4, 2017
Synopsis: “You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel.”
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. “You are not alone,” he said.
Portia Chadwick knows she’ll never have a life of adventure. But when a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger―and unexpected passion.
Dell Turner grew up in London’s back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society’s elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful young lady, he doesn’t anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation…or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She’s as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can’t bring himself to turn Portia away… even if it means risking her life.
Review: Book 3 in Amy Sandas’ Fallen Ladies series was just wonderful. Passionate, adventurous, emotionally gripping, and a just plain wonderful story. I loved it. I think book 3 is my favorite in the series so far. The chemistry between Portia and Dell was fantastic. She was such a strong female character who was well-developed. The plot was strong and the conflicts fit the story line. It coincides with the same timelines as book one (Emma’s story, Luck is No Lady) and book two (Lily’s story, The Untouchable Earl), so you revisit their stories a bit but with a different perspective. The author doesn’t lose clarity, and details from all three plots are not lost. They merge and play out well side-by-side. This was a great story and I highly recommend the series.
