     Lady Bernadette Marie Burton  may be the richest widow in England, but like her dreams of finding true passion, her reputation is deteriorating. Cruel gossip, loneliness and hoards of opportunistic suitors have her believing Society couldn't be more vile...or dangerous. So when an attacker threatens her life, she finds safety in the most unseemly of places: the arms of a mysterious, Irish-American gang leader.

     His fortune stolen, young  Matthew Milton is done playing the respectable gentleman. In the slums of New York, only ruffians thrive. But from the moment he arrives in London and encounters the voluptuous Lady Bernadette, he can't help but wonder about the finer pleasures he's missing. Or just how much he's willing to risk-not only to bed her, but to prove his worth...


My Review:

     What I liked in this book was the way Milton roused above his circumstances and that no matter what happened in his life he put everyone above his own needs. Not many people see this way. Even knowing he came from a place of money he didn't let that go to his head and he helped everyone he could as much as he was capable of.

     Something that got to me and I have this problem a lot was that even as it was a historic book I didn't felt like I was transported to that time in which the book was wrote. But in general it was a good story of survival, morals and above all triumph over the circumstances in which life can be cruel and make you forget yourself.
