Far more plot than I was expecting

I didn't have huge expectations of the plot of this story, so I was pleasantly surprised when there was real intrigued. I wasn't a huge fan of the heroine, but the hero was sexy. The sex scenes were tantalizing, but there were things that happened during those scenes that bought me out of the story, with the thought, 'That would never happen...' but otherwise they were blush worthy. I feel there should have been a warning about the potentially distressing references to women and children being abused. Overall 4/5. I did enjoy the book as a whole, and the narration was well done.

Great Story

I was not sure about this author, as her previous series had some good & bad about the trilogy. I am so glad that I took a chance, as this novel is really great. I loved both main characters..and all the others introduced in this new series. The heroine is strong, smart and mature. She evolves through the book and has a great moment of self-awareness, that is rare in a romantic heroine. It was a scene that touched me with it's honesty. I loved that the h/h grew and their relationship was so organic that I could understand and appreciate their love story. I like it when a story makes sense and characters behave logically. The story is very interesting as they try to solve the murder of the hero's sister. There is a complex resolution that keeps the reader involved to the end. There are also some surprises that keeps readers turning the page. I am not a fan of the narrator, but she is growing on me, to the point where I don't avoid books she narrates. She does a good job here...and there are a lot of characters to voice! I read this in one shot and could not stop. I am finished and am writing this at 2:30 am...so I must have really enjoyed it. I can't wait for the rest of the series. The hero's 2 best friends sound like they will be fun to get to know better.

Liked the story, not the male voice the narrator tried to do

I really like the story and I like the narrator’s overall story voice but I just did not like how she voiced Marcus. It was somewhat of a distraction to the story.

EXCELLENT start to a new series

Right well I am incredibly pleased with this first book in the series... Anna Harrington has a very uncanny skill at pacing. This (like all her other writing) never felt rush and was very well developed. Other HR that I’ve read that dabble in the bleak underworld of Regency England never strike such a good balance between the mystery and the romance itself. This really was done extraordinarily well. The story was very well weaved, and very satisfying. Loved the last setup for the rest of the series and so looking forward to the next installments. Justine Eyre forever and always the only narrator that really delivers. She always imbues emotion in narration and dialogue and makes it feel like you are listening to a conversation. As all of Anna Harrington’s writing has a big incendiary emotional moment or two (all the Carlisle brothers’ stories made me weep at one point), JE is the only one that will do in my opinion. Can’t wait for the next one! Highly recommend.
