Publisher's Summary

Having grown up on the mean streets of nineteenth-century London, Caroline St. James is used to fighting to survive.

So when her beloved mother - abandoned and ignored by her wealthy family - suddenly dies, the scrappy twenty-two-year-old devises a plan to right this terrible wrong. With nothing to lose, she sails to New York to find the man who turned a cold shoulder to her mother's suffering: Caroline's grandfather. To settle the family score, Caroline infiltrates her grandfather's privileged world, hoping to sabotage his business from the inside. But as she sets her plot in motion, she meets Jackson Montgomery, a virtuous man who is struggling to recover from a family scandal of his own. As their friendship grows, and Caroline begins to piece together the motives that led her family to turn its back, she is forced to make a decision: Should she risk everything in the name of justice? Or can she look toward the future and let love and forgiveness guide her instead?

Saddened

I am supremely disappointed with this book. It kept turning off during the reading and I had to continually keep turning it back on. Very annoying.

Refreshingly...a twist of a love story!

Most love stories, romance novels are predictable. I suppose you can almost predict what happens in this story but I enjoyed the fact that it did have a twist of difference to it.

Good, but missed it's potential

The author definitely has talent and so does the narrator, but I kept getting distracted by the areas where in my opinion they missed the mark. The story was at times a good, interesting novel and others, a fluffy school girl fairy tale. Several interesting characters were introduced but left undeveloped. Also, the ending was too short and abrupt and I was left dissatisfied.

The narrator was also inconsistent. She had difficulty switching between accents and sometimes they sounded fake and earned a few eye rolls. There were other times when I thought she did a nice job.

Overall, the story was good enough to keep me listening, wanting to hear how it would play out and so with my curiosity peaked, I stayed with it until I finished it.

Beautiful!

The beautiful performance of the narrator turned this good story into a thoroughly enjoyable, unputdownable listen.

Slow & simpering

This book had a potentially good plot but the villain was too predictable. Could've done without the biblical lessons and lectures, not to mention the overly dramatic emotions and thought processes.

Wonderful Listen!

This is my first book of Renee Ryan's that I have read and it was lovely and won't be the last. I just ordered the second book in this series, through Audible. Also, the narrator, Karen Peakes, was fantastic. I loved her narration and it was perfect for enhancing this story.

Caroline St. James comes to New York to bring what she believes is justice to her grandfather, who she believes is responsible for abandoning her mother when she sought his aid. Although from a wealthy family, Caroline has grown up in a terrible section of London, always fighting for survival.

Jackson Montgomery's life is going great. He's brought his family out of scandal, is successful in business, and hopes to soon be engage. But then a young Englishwoman arrives and impacts his world.

Sizzling romance and tension throughout this story. Two alphas butting heads and growing in their spiritual arcs. A sigh-worthy story. But can Caroline disrupt her cousin Elizabeth's life by falling in love with the man everyone has thought would become Elizabeth's husband?
