After her wealthy merchant father is accused of murder, Elise Rand goes to the only person she knows who can help: Patrick Hamilton, Regency London's most brilliant trial lawyer. But no amount of cash will convince Patrick to take on what appears to be a doomed case. So Elise is forced to put her reputation, her sanity, and her heart on the line when she offers a very different method of payment for his legal services: herself. But what neither of them could have ever expected are the true feelings that bubble up after a few stolen kisses.

Real characters, depth, wonderful different voices, distinct male/female voices, story line believable, surprise ending ,and real love.
I'm mostly a stay at home mother with some wishes to be back in the studio.
I love the Victorian romances that's heroin's are outspoken and determind. This met all expectations and had a bit of unexpected dramatic twist at the end. Love the way the book followed the Victorian romance and then it became a story in itself with an ending that followed the characters and plotline to a natural conclusion.
