Back cover copy

Eva Leigh launches a seductive new series that sizzles with the dark secrets of London's underworld . . .

Years ago, the Duke of Greyland gave his heart--and a princely sum of money--to a charming, destitute widow with unparalleled beauty. After one passionate night, she slipped from his bed and vanished without a trace. And just when he's given up hope of ever seeing her again, Greyland finds her managing a gaming hell. He's desperate to have her . . . until he discovers everything about his long-lost lover was a lie.

In truth, Cassandra Blake grew up on the streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a mark--to be fleeced and forgotten--but her feelings for the duke became all too real. Once he learns of her deception, however, the heat in his eyes turns to ice. When her business partner absconds with the gaming hell proceeds--leaving unsavory investors out for blood--Cassandra must beg the man she betrayed for help.

Greyland wants compensation, too, and he'll assist her under one condition: she doesn't leave his sight until her debts are paid. But it's not long before the real Cassandra--the smart, streetwise criminal--is stealing his heart all over again.

Review quote

"magnificent... a fast-paced and seductive treasure." -- Publishers Weekly (starred review) "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 "Intelligent, romantic, and plays by its own rules [...] I highly recommend this story..." -- All About Romance (Desert Isle Keeper) "Delightful banter and delicious passion... simply divine!" -- Tessa Dare, New York Times bestselling author "[A] divine blend of depth, wicked heat and sparkling wit. Eva Leigh's characters leap off the page and linger long after you've closed the book. She's a wonderful writer." -- Julie Anne Long, USA Today bestselling author "Strong characters-a truly "kissable" hero, a courageous heroine and a couple of witty friends-blend with the unique plotline to create a novel full of passion, adventure, sensuality and seductiveness that's impossible to put down. Leigh is at the top of her game!" -- RT Book Reviews (top pick)
