Fiction. Romance. Historical Fiction. "Gaelen Foley . . . is destined to captivate readers.". HTML:Driven to uncover the truth about the mysterious death of his ladylove, the Duke of Hawkscliffe will go to any lengths to unmask a murderer. Even if it means jeopardizing his reputation by engaging in a scandalous affair with London's most provocative courtesan--the desirable but aloof Belinda Hamilton.

Bel has used her intelligence and wit to charm the city's titled gentlemen, while struggling to put the pieces of her life back together. She needs a protector, so she accepts Hawk's invitation to become his mistress in name only. He asks nothing of her body, but seeks her help in snaring the same man who shattered her virtue. Together they tempt the unforgiving wrath of society--until their risky charade turns into a dangerous attraction, and Bel must make a devastating decision that could ruin her last chance at love. . . .

I came back to write a review and have found I recall very little of this book other than I liked it! ( )

Interesting but not all that engaging. ( )

Highly implausible, with a lady who verges on Mary Sue-ness and a dude who just barely groveled enough to make up for how poorly he treated her, but it pushed the wtf to just the right level. If the next book in the series shows everything sunshine and roses, I'll be rating down, but for now, it was enjoyable enough to read, even with all the eye rolling I did. ( )

This book was an unexpected suprise. The only book of Gaelen Foley's that I'd read to this point was "Her Only Desire" - which unfortunately I found to be a rather bad read. But I found this one at a bargain bookstore and picked up - and was pleasantly suprised. While imperfect, this book is well written and entertaining. Bel's story of her fall from from genteel poor to courtesan is sad but not overly melodramatic, and her relationship with Hawkscliffe builds well, and is not dropped on the reader out of nowhere. Hawkscliffe's revelations about his lady-love at the end of the book turn upside down his well-ordered conceptions of morality, and add an interesting twist to his character. While not a deep or particularly spectacular book, this book is an enjoyable read and I'm glad I picked it up. ( )

Un amor que nace del deseo de venganza. Robert Knight, uno de los caballeros más ricos y poderosos de Gran Bretaña, quiere acabar con el hombre que mató a la mujer que amaba. Belinda, por su parte, es acosada por ese mismo asesino. Los dos se unirán para desenmascararlo, y sin quererlo, nacerá el amor.
