"Brenda Hiatt has created a most different and dashing rogue." ~Kasey Michaels
To escape her stepmother's matchmaking machinations, Lady Pearl runs away, pretending to be a common housemaid, with the help of her abigail. When she is rescued from the near-disaster of recognition by a charming serving-man, Pearl pretends to be simpleminded to safeguard herself from any unwanted advances. But soon she begins to suspect that her rescuer is far more than the common servant he seemed at first.
Luke St. Clair lives a double life, pretending to be a gentleman while in reality sustaining himself and the needy as the notorious Robin Hood-type thief, the Saint of Seven Dials. The last thing he needs in his life is a beautiful simpleton in need of protection. But "Purdy" proves to be anything but simple—or common! Once he learns the truth, does he dare continue, in the ballrooms of the elite, the flirtation that began in the slums of London? The risk is enormous, but Lady Pearl's sweet kisses may just be worth it.

I have read this book for the second time. I love the story of Luke and Pearl. It is a great love story. I can't remember when I first read it but I am going to purchase the second one. It might take a few months to get them but I am going to try.
I loved this book! It was not the typical historical romance book. The charachters were well written. The story line was full of unexpected twists and turns and I was captivated until the end!
Descriptive passages support the storyline in such a way that I could smell the back streets of London! A good romantic story and a nice story, supporting each other!
