"My intentions toward you are quite dishonorable. The only promise I make is that there will be a great deal of pleasure for both of us...."It was a dangerous time in London, as a murderous scoundrel called the Hook terrified rich and poor alike with his dastardly conquests. It was certainly not safe for Anne Fairhaven to walk darkened streets, even with a loaded pistol in her purse.But desperation made one do reckless things.

Great book! I've read the dark queen series by Susan Carroll and fell in love with her writing and this follows the same pattern. I thought the story like was good and flowed well. Would recommend.

If you enjoy Susan Carroll's series The Dark Queen, etc...you see in this story how her writting has evolved. Enjoyable mystery/romance.
Bloodray
Very well written, loved it! Just wish the Hook storyline had more explanation in the end. Otherwise, solid read that kept me up at night!
Leceri
My first Susan Carroll book: it was great! So many twists and turns I could not figure who the real villains were. If you want an intriguing read with great characters, this is your book.
Landarn

This was a Christmas gift for a friend who really enjoys this author's work. She enjoyed this book very much.
My huge disappointment was in the 1st seduction and later the sex scene. I've read several of S. Carrolls books. So far all nice and clean. So had I known I would have skipped this book. I didn't scrutinize reviews since so far they had been clean.
I have to say altho it is a strong R rating it wasn't quite X rated in my view. For steamy scenes they were less descriptive as most, however this genre does not need sex scenes to sell books. And it is out of the character of the genre.
That being said the two scenes mentioned are the only ones in the book. Incidentally, they are not married one good thing is after those scenes they at least don't obsess about sex too much as most do once the steamy scene is introduced. Usually after that the plot is downplayed and the characters only talk about wanting sex again.
As for the plot, it was quite good barring the steamy unnecessary scenes.
The book is well written as well.
