Publisher's Summary

Marlowe is a pickpocket, a housebreaker - and a better actress than any professional on the stage. She runs with the Covent Garden Cubs, a gang of thieves living in the slums of London's Seven Dials. It's a fierce life, and Marlowe has a hard outer shell. But when she's alone, she allows herself to think of a time before - a dimly remembered life when she was called Elizabeth.

Maxwell, Lord Dane, is intrigued when his brother, a hired investigator, ropes him into his investigation of the fiercely beautiful hellion. He teaches her to navigate the social morass of the ton, but Marlowe will not escape so easily. Instead Dane is drawn into her dangerous world, where the student becomes the teacher and love is the greatest risk of all.

    "Love love love this!"

    Oh my, I loved this! I fell in love with Elizabeth as a 5-year old. She loved pink, she loved being 5, she loved it when her mother put her to bed instead of nanny. What a sweet little girl. Then her life is changed dramatically.

    I did not want this book to end. I truly loved it. The characters were wonderful There were laugh-out-loud funny lines and then tearful emotional points. Marlowe was a fish out of water at the Earl's townhouse after living most of her life in the rookeries. Her relationship with Dane develops over (little) time and, of course, he helps to end her life of crime.

    The end is touching. The narrator of the audiobook did a fabulous job with this.

    My favorite Shana Galen book yet.

    There comes a time when you have to choose between listening to audible or going to bed.

    "Crazy ride!"

    This was a great story with a lot of twist and turns. A real life Cinderella story that takes place in the 1800's. Worth the credit.

    Story
    "Amazing, Excellent, Fun Story! Great Narration."

    OMG this book was so much fun to read\listen to. I enjoyed every minute of it. It was so different than I expected and the narrator made it even better.

    I laughed so many times during this book. It wasn't a regency romp type it was just so well written that the funny moments were just that, funny not silly.

    I absolutely loved the heroine Marlowe. She was just great, beautiful, funny, witty, street smart since she was raised in St. Giles as a pickpocket. She was clever. But so very naive at certain things. And her slang was hilarious, like bubbies, and cockchafer. So many LOL moments with her.

    I really enjoyed the hero, Dane as well. He was handsome, smart, witty and a touch picky. LOL which was funny. The chemistry between the to was great, it felt real and genuine and not forced at all. There are a couple of very very well written hot and steamy romantic sex scenes. Not erotica not BDSM.

    The story line and plot was great. The entire story flowed so well and was so well written. I just loved it. There is so much fantastic dialogue throughout the entire book it really was hard to put down. I would have listened to this in one day if I could have. This was such a pleasant surprise.

    As for the narration. I have to say that Beverly Crick did a very good job and made this book come to life with her narration of this story. It was perfect and possibly made the entire thing more enjoyable. The accent she used for Marlowe was just perfect!
    I do wish she the hero's voice was a bit deeper but at least she tried and you could tell the differences. Her reading voice was very nice. Everyone had a distinct voice and she read with emotion including whispering, yelling, and singing. It was great! Love a narrator that give a performance instead of just reading to you.

    If you have not read or listened to this book you are truly missing out. I highly recommend this book as a read but especially as a listen.

    I loved it! I am going to get the next one in the series and I hope it is just as good. Thank you Shana Galen for a fantastic story. Thank you Beverly Crick for a fantastic listen.

    "I TOTALLY LOVED THIS BOOK"

    I thought it was well written without too many characters to try to keep in line. The storyline was different than the usual and kept me listening as often as I could. There was just enough steam to keep it interesting and the narration was well done. I recommend this book to anyone who likes a little of everything. Can't wait to start the next one in the series.

    "It was a good read"

    I had read many wonderful reviews of this book by people whose reviews I generally agree with. I enjoyed the book but was definitely not wowed by it. I felt that the narrator was over acting at times.
