Andreas Merrick is the king of London's dark underworld, having amassed unimaginable wealth and power...and a fierce reputation that leaves even the bravest men quaking in their boots. Yet one person is maddeningly unintimidated by his fearsome presence: the persistent Miss Phoebe Pace.
Equal parts honey and steel, Phoebe will stop at nothing to find her missing brother and save her family. Though associating with Andreas means peril and scandal, she never expects to experience a passion so intense that it threatens to consume her. But enigmatic Andreas is no ordinary man to love. He brings dangers from all sides -- without and within -- while tempting her beyond her wildest dreams...
I enjoyed the story and seeing how everything ends with the characters. Andreas and Phoebe's romance is ok but nothing fantastic and in all honesty could have had more potential. I did enjoy find out why Andreas hated the ton so much and reading about his life. I also liked the mystery Phoebe was involved in and how strong a female character she was and how she took over a mans world. The books ending was a disappointment to me but it did wrap everything up nicely. I can't see another book in the series by the way it was written. All in all just an ok book.
