Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Sari Robins was born and raised in New York, married a Southern gentleman, and now lives with her family in Georgia. Having spent years working as a tax attorney, she realized that deep inside her beat the heart of an author. Since leaving her law practice behind, she hasn’t looked back. She gets to be more creative in her writing than she ever could have with a legal brief. She loves writing fiction, particularly narratives set in England’s Regency period--the setting for her exciting Andersen Hall series which began with One Wicked Night, More Than a Scandal, What to Wear to a Seduction, and When Seducing a Spy. Stay tuned for the next installment of the Andersen Hall series, due out in 2008!

This book was very, very hard to get through.

There was also a lot of the mystery of the story left out in the beginning, which added to the confusing pace.

My problem falls with the believability and likability of the characters.

Under the cloak of darkness, within the alleyways of London, roams the masked vigilante. He is a Sentinel, one of the band of brothers that keep the country safe from outlaws, prepared to take justice into his own hands.
But tonight even he is in for a bit of a surprise.

Veiled and dressed in widow's weeds, a young woman proceeds cautiously through the dark streets, seeking information about her missing brother. But information usually comes with a price and this one may be more than she's willing to pay. After being saved from a harrowing attack, she retreats. Something about the masked man scares and intrigues her. Best be getting away before more ill befalls her.

Blessedly the night only lasts so long.

And when to sun comes up, off come the disguises. Miss Abigail West is in desperate need of employment. Following a rather scandalous episode at a former employer, she's surprised to be given an interview. But Viscount Steele, Solicitor-General of England, needs a governess for his nephews and Abigail prepares to put her best foot forward. Only no one could ever prepare her for the site of this handsome aristocrat. And neither could anyone predict the surging emotions that the pretty little governess soon brings out in the guarded gentleman.

Keeping a tight reign on their attraction to each other by day becomes more difficult. Only at night do they indulge in their wicked thoughts and desires but with whom? Because neither knows the others identity. But as the ever increasing threat of danger strikes close to home, who will be the first to lose their disguise and trust the other before its too late?

This book just didn't work for me. I think that the plot is brilliant and unique.

This book was very, very hard to get through. It could have been a good story. But the plot was very mixed up and confusing. The hero and heroine were likable. But there was too much missing to the story. The dialec between characters was not good at all. The author goes on and on about absolutlely nothing. Trust me on this...you will be very dissappointed.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Two strangers, Abigail West and Jason Steele, each hiding their true face for reasons of their own, meet in a dark alley when he rescues her from thugs. The intensity of the situation and an immediate attraction lead them to a one night stand. Not even when they meet again, this time with their true faces revealed, do they know each other. Now, she is a proper young woman seeking employment as a governess for the Viscount's two nephews, a job she is able to attain. What she can not do is deny the attraction to her boss. However, secrets and their stations keep them apart. She is on a quest to discover the truth behind her brother's fate, and he is part of a group of masked vigilantes that keeps London safe by night. It seems to be a doomed affair, but as we all know, love can find a way where there is none.

**** If it were not for the rapidity of Jason and Abigail's romantic encounter, this would be a wholly credible story. Ignoring that, Ms. Robbins has successfully combined the classic governess/employer romance with the intrigue of the Scarlet Pimpernel type adventure, making for something sure to win her fans among historical romance aficionados. ****

I have been reading romance fiction especially historical romance for over 40 years and I found this book to be a big yawn, not quite a wall banger, but not one I could even bother to finish, let alone recommend to friends. I liked the premise, but the characters seemed to be of a more modern contemporary period in both their dialogue and their thought processes ( ie their reactions to events).

The first misunderstanding was so shallow and this reader had to wonder why anyone would let this kook, near children let alone teach them. The hero/heroine relationship seemed too artificial and there was no sexual tension being developed between them. There was also a lot of the mystery of the story left out in the beginning, which added to the confusing pace. Sure you don't want to tell all, but a good writer lets the reader know tidbits of the mystery, before the characters do and that didn't happen in this book. Not only did I not understand why he the kids but to be honest she didn't make me care.

This was my first book by this author and to be honest it will probably be my last. She might want to try contemporary romances instead as her voice is better suited to that than historicals. There are a lot of other midlist romance authors who are producing better stories in this period with characters who speak and act representative of the period and ones the reader can care about after the last page is turned.
