"As steamy as it is luscious. My favorite kind of historical!"—GRACE BURROWES, New York Times bestselling author, for Dukes Are Forever

Welcome to Anna Harrington's star-studded Regency world with:

A former soldier determined to uphold the law

A heroine in London's underworld trapped by her own impossible choices

And an attraction between them that is dangerously distracting to them both

Soldier turned solicitor Lord Merritt Rivers has dedicated his life to upholding the law. He patrols the streets faithfully, hoping to stop crimes before they can happen. While hunting an escaped convict, he encounters a woman also hunting thieves. She's a delicious distraction, until he discovers that she is the criminal he's after. She's smart, challenging, and everything he finds attractive, but he cannot trust her.

Veronica Chase has hidden her past as a nobleman's daughter. She confesses to a crime to keep her adopted brother out of prison. She now lives in London's underworld, trapped between worlds, belonging nowhere.

Forming an uneasy alliance, Veronica and Merritt work together to protect innocent Londoners during the city's riots. Moving between her world and his, they grow closer to each other and to the mob's dangerous leaders. But their newfound trust won't be enough, until each face their demons and ask what's worth saving—the lives they've chosen to lead or the love that leaves them yearning for more.

Started off great. Exciting, captivating, dangerous, funny. The end became sally, predictable and boring unfortunately

The moment Merritt and Veronica clash swords, I was hooked. This is an exciting action-packed story with some very interesting characters. Merritt and Veronica don’t admit it at first, but they are a match. Both are courageous, street smart, and skilled fighters. The chemistry between them is hot. They both have secrets and pain from the past. It’s possible they can help each other heal. For now, they work together with Clayton Elliot to gain information about the riots, who is financing them, and of course, Scepter. Their search takes them to taverns, a brothel, and the Regent’s ball. All the while, they are falling for each other. By the end of the story, the Lords of the Armory still have not discovered the mastermind of Scepter, but they have taken some of the operatives, and they know what the ultimate goal is. This one is definitely hard to put down. I highly recommend it and the series.

I received an ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My review is voluntary.
