Description from Amazon.com:
Once she spurned the man… When the Duke of Lennox hires Sir Brook Derring, England’s best investigator, to find his daughter, Brook intends only to rescue the lady and return to his solitary life. He deals with London’s roughest criminals every day of the week; surely he should be able to endure seeing his first love again-the perfect girl who broke his heart…
Now her life depends on him Lady Lillian-Anne Lennox has always done her best to live up to her father’s standards of perfection-at the cost of following her heart. When she’s kidnapped and her perfect life is shattered, Lila has another chance. Together, Lila and Brook navigate not only the dark and deadly side of London, but the chasm of pride and prejudice that divides them.
Brook had his heart broken and was humiliated by Lila (Lady Lillian-Anne) eight years prior. But since he is known for finding the kidnapped and lost, and returning them to family, Lila’s aristocratic father asks for his help to find Lila even though he refused Brook’s petition to marry Lila those eight years ago. While kidnapped Lila views a crime and once she is recued she is still in danger.
This is a very good read. It is full of wonderful character development, a grumpy hero and a not so demure heroine. Shana Galan knows how to write breathtaking suspense and heart pounding action into a very romantic plot. This is my favorite of the Covent Garden Cubs series. This is a standalone novel with cameos by some characters in previous books.
