We are introduced to the villain of this book, Satin, in Galen’s VISCOUNT OF VICE novella (reviewed by Deet on Jan. 30, 2015). Marlowe is a cub, or thief, in his gang of young pickpockets. She has grown up with this monster after he abducted her in Hyde Park when she was five years old. Now Sir Brook has found her and is certain she is the missing Lady Elizabeth but her parents are away in Scotland. He takes her to his brother, Maxwell, Earl of Dane’s townhouse and soon leaves her to be taken care of by his brother. Nothing about this arrangement is satisfactory to fiery Marlowe, the handsome Earl, his demanding mother or the disgruntled butler.
This is a terrific story with a Pygmalion vibe. Marlowe is naïve and totally out of her element and Max feels he just doesn’t have time or desire to put up with her. Of course that all changes over the next few days as Samantha, the Earl’s sweet, kind sister, works her magic in making Marlowe presentable.
In this, Galen’s first full length novel in the Covent Garden Cubs series, we are treated to heated encounters and sizzling chemistry as well as action and adventure. There is humor and accomplished writing from a talented author. I highly recommend this book and this series promises to be an award winner.
