Publisher Description

From the New York Times bestselling author who Lisa Kleypas hails as "too good to be true" comes the first book in her beloved Maiden Lane series.
A MAN CONTROLLED BY HIS DESIRES . . .

Infamous for his wild, sensual needs, Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire, is searching for a savage killer in St. Giles, London's most notorious slum. Widowed Temperance Dews knows St. Giles like the back of her hand-she's spent a lifetime caring for its inhabitants at the foundling home her family established. Now that home is at risk . . .

A WOMAN HAUNTED BY HER PAST . . .

Caire makes a simple offer-in return for Temperance's help navigating the perilous alleys of St. Giles, he will introduce her to London's high society so that she can find a benefactor for the home. But Temperance may not be the innocent she seems, and what begins as cold calculation soon falls prey to a passion that neither can control-one that may well destroy them both.

a bit of everything

This is an entertaining story. It's in the past, but she's a strong female lead. She runs an orphanage and needs a wealthy donor to help fund it. He needs a partner to help him try to find someone who is brutally murdering women, mostly prostitutes if I remember correctly. They develop feelings of course, but they both have other issues. She has a checkered romantic past. He has a fetish for tying lovers up. It was definitely worth my time reading it.
