Publisher's summary

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her - and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother’s gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes - and their hearts - are perfectly aligned.

Moving Romance With Some False Notes

Although well written the 2nd in the Wicked Wallflowers series included too many instances where I found it difficult to suspend my disbelief sufficiently to fully lose myself to the story. Given the time period & the characters portrayed I believe a money hungary crime boss as evil & unfeeling as Mac Diggery would have sold the beautiful Ophelia into prostitution long before she reached her majority. Regardless, if you enjoy this genre Christi Caldwell is a good author & her books worth reading.

Ophelia and Connor's Love

Unexpected twist, wonderful characters, love wins. It is stand alone, but so much easier to keep up with if you read book one.

Love ❤️

This series is wonderful, I read Book 3 first and was so enthralled by Gertrude’s story that I went back to the beginning. So glad I did! Definitely looking forward to reading Broderick’s story…I know, it’s going to be sooo good 😊

Not my favorite in series

There was just no excitement. Contention, yes. A little too much angst for me. It's really difficult for me when the narrator switches to cockney...hard for me to understand. I had the same problem in previous books, too.

Trigger warning: rape and sex abuse

I am an avid Christi Caldwell reader and I Love Tim Campbell. I usually love them.
I agree with other reviews that this was Slowwwww. I loved the characters and the story line had a lot of potential, but it was hard to get invested in.
However, the real problem with this book, IMO, is the sexual abuse and rape recollection scene. It’s not just alluded to; you have to sit and suffer through it and it made it hard to finish.

So many twist and turns!

Lol at a point I felt stressed and overwhelmed. I couldn’t stop listening to this book! I had to find out what was next. I have to admit the beginning was a bit slow, but the author made it up after a few chapters. It was good!

Good Story / Great History

Another example of a woman doing what she needed to do to help others....like herself. Authors research seemed authentic and very interesting,

The Vixen

I enjoyed this story, but not as much as I enjoyed the first one in the series. I read both of them quickly and was never pulled out of either of them by stilted language. I strongly dislike when that happens, I get deeply engrossed when I read or listen or both. I will read the next book in the series.
