London is said to be the glittering jewel of society, a world unto itself—but to Julia Elliston it is a city of shadows. Her life is swiftly dissolving into scandal. And in Victorian society, even a whisper of scandal—substantiated or not—can be the death of a young woman’s reputation.
Now under the watchful eye of Lord Roy Pierson, one of most influential men in England, Julia begrudgingly accepts his protection. But Chance Macy’s power is far-reaching as well, and he is eager to assert his claim over her.
Thrust into society as the Emerald Heiress, Julia is the toast of London, a celebrated curiosity. But in reality she’s trapped between the clutches of two powerful men. Aided only by a gentleman whose intentions she prays she can trust, Julia must finally take control of her own fate—but outwitting one’s foe rarely goes according to plan.

It has been a while since a book wowed me, and the 1st two books in this series have. I agree that this book is not predicable and kept me on my toes. If you are looking for an easy read-this is not the book for you; however, if you want something more complex-then it is. I will look for more books in the future by Jessica Dotta.

Disappointing. 500 pages of nothing. So many emotions going around the same mountain and never being resolved. So many things hinted at that would have shed light on the story but never explained.
