Description

Named one of Amazon's Best Romances of December!

For a dashing duke and the proprietress of a secret, sensual club in the London Underground, passion could lead to love... if they dare

Thomas Powell, the new Duke of Northfield, knows he should be proper and principled, like his father. No more dueling, or carousing, or frequenting masked parties where Londoners indulge their wildest desires. But he's not ready to give up his freedom just yet. The club is an escape, a place where he can forget about society and the weight of his title... and see her, the woman he's wanted forever.

Lucia--known as Amina--manages the Orchid Club, a secret society where fantasies become reality. But for Lucia, it's strictly business, profitable enough to finance her dream: a home for the lost girls of the streets. Surrounded by lovers, she only observes, unwilling risk her future for any man. No member has ever intrigued her...until him, the masked stranger whose heated looks sear her skin. After months of suppressed longing, they dare to give in to temptation...

But the late duke's legacy comes with a shocking secret, and the scandal threatens to destroy everything Tom loves... his family, the Orchid Club, and even Lucia.

Review quote

"Every now and then, you discover a new (or at least, new-to-you) author who leaves you a little sunstruck... I was dazzled." -- Lisa Kleypas for Powell's "Lisa Kleypas Recommends" column- Forever Your Earl

"packages all the best parts of historical fiction and wraps them up in a lovely romantic bow. [...] Leigh's heroines are complex, vivid characters who seem to have stepped out of an enviable time and place, and not just because of all the satisfying, sexy romance they get to have." -- Sarah MacLean for the Washington Post (Scandal Takes the Stage- Best Romance Novels of November)

"Eva Leigh is proving herself as vital a voice in the genre... Leigh consistently crafts whip-smart heroines and irresistible heroes delivered in packages bursting with wicked wit, feminist leanings, and sex positivity... For any who question whether historical romance is outdated or can be feminist, look no further than Eva Leigh's work - while maintaining assiduous historical accuracy, she delivers intoxicating yarns that bulldoze tropes and flip gender expectations on their head." -- Entertainment Weekly

"Featuring a strong, secure, and in-no-need-of-saving heroine, the third in Leigh's London Underground series is a must-read for Regency romance lovers." -- Booklist

"a sexy, scandalous tale... Complex characters, witty exchanges, a little blackmail, and a lot of loyalty and love make this a fantastic ending to a sensational series." -- Publishers Weekly

"You'll breeze through this steamy read..." -- BookTrib.com

"Rebellious and racy... sparks fly..." -- Woman's World (Woman's World Book Club Pick - Best New Books of the Week)

The drama is so juicy, and fans of Harlots will love it! -- Bookish
