Description from Amazon.com:
David, Viscount Fairly, has imperiled his honor…Letty Banks is a reluctant courtesan, keeping a terrible secret that brought her, a vicar’s daughter, to a life of vice. While becoming madam of Viscount Fairly’s high-class brothel is an absolute financial necessity, Letty refuses to become David’s mistress-though their attraction becomes harder to resist the more she learns about the man…
Perhaps a fallen woman can redeem it.David is smitten not only with Letty’s beauty, but also with her calm, her kindness, her quiet. David is determined to put respectability back in her grasp, even if that means uncovering the secrets Letty works so hard to keep hidden-secrets that could take her away from him forever…
Oh yes! Being a fallen woman is no fun at all in Regency England. But being able to honor your responsibilities and have food on your table requires a woman to forgo many respectable employment opportunities. So it happens with Letty Banks. Lucky for her she meets up with David, Viscount Fairly, and he employs her as a Madam in his brothel. Not respectable but she does not have to “go upstairs” with any customers.
This final installment in Burrowes’ Lonely Lords Series is the most gut wrenchingly emotional of the entire series. I confess I went through many tissues while trying to turn pages and find out how the happily-ever-after would come about. I have loved David through Burrowes’ series and I wanted him to find love. Letty is a very sympathetic paramour.
If you have been following this series then you already know what wonderful dialog and characterization you are in for. I look forward to more, more, more from Ms. Burrowes’ pen.
