Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumours that he's a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate, where she quickly discovers that nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances ... and the murders.
With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man she falling in love with. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man ... or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?

Different from the usual novel written about this era,. I enjoyed reading it and how the characters were evolving through out the book. ‘’’’’’’’Well written and interesting from the standpoint of how sanitation was tied to the germ theory of infection.and disease.
This was amazing. A thrilling tale than enamors from the get-go and draws you in until the very last page. Loved it. Wouldn’t change a thing. I love Jack the Ripper and its fiction—now this is one of my favorites. In my opinion, a must read for Historical Fiction/Crime Fiction fans. The romance made it even better, and you definitely don’t see the ending coming.
Gothic love and mystery
It didn’t take me long to realize that this book was about Jack the Ripper with a twist. I loved this book and wished to read the next one in the series. Much to my great regret Apple Books does not carry it. I have found the complete series on... you guessed it ...Amazon Kindle addition. I’m disappointed in Apple Books as they should be still carrying the series but instead have given Amazon a heads up.
