“You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel.”
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. “You are not alone,” he said.
Portia Chadwick knows she’ll never have a life of adventure. But when a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger—and unexpected passion.
Dell Turner grew up in London’s back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society’s elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful young lady, he doesn’t anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation…or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She’s as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can’t bring himself to turn Portia away... even if it means risking her life.

Sandas infuses her third Fallen Ladies "Regency" romance (after The Untouchable Earl) with plenty of modern spy novel attributes and steamy sex (including a dash of m nage) but leaves out any flavor of the historical period. Portia Chadwick and her sisters, Lily and Emma, come from genteel Mayfair stock; Dell Turner lives in the East End and earns a living doing "what others cannot. Or will not." When Lily is kidnapped by the dastardly Mason Hale, Portia and her aunt Angelique hire Dell to locate them. But Portia can't just wait for Dell to return her sister: she insists on being part of the investigation, and the more time she spends in his company, the more attractive she finds him. The steamy sensuality and intrigue will satisfy readers whose only requirement of a Regency romance is that it have a frilly dress on the cover.
