This historical was unlike any I’d read before! Full of excitement, a woman who bucks societal norms, and plenty of mystery. Engaged form the first word, I read this in one sitting. Katherine Grey did an incredible job pulling you back into the past and holding you captive until the very last sentence.
Olivia is a woman not worried about fitting in. Past her prime, she’s braved the horrors of war, assisting her physician brother, Phillip with wounded soldiers. The scars that time left behind made my heart bleed for the plucky girl with a ken wit, and balls the size of Texas. When her brother goes missing she seeks out an infamous crime lord, Lazarus and our whirlwind story really begins!
Lazarus is a man with so many layers. Crime Lord with a heart of gold he comes from humble means and lives by his own code of justice. Yes, he’s just as sexy as he sounds. Tall, dark, proud, self-made and honorable. He melted me like a chocolate chip cookie fresh out the oven. I always enjoyed the ride. The love scenes between them simmered, but their connection was built on a foundation so much stronger than a mere physical joining.
I highly recommend this amazing read if you’re looking for something to totally engross you and change your view on London and the ton!
