I felt as if I were in the middle of an early western story and also a pirate story. It was filled with drama and intrigue. I could hardly believe the epilogue, they had three children, two boys and a girl and a forth child on the way.
It was the first of all the stories before Darby that told what happened years into their marriage, I loved that.
Great job Bella!
Rand Beauregard was a judge in Portland, Oregon by day. But he also had a big secret. By night, he was the Phantom., a shadowy figure in the Shanghai Tunnels under Portland. He struggled to help the men who were captured and sold, forced to be sailors until they died. Even worse, women were also captured to entertain the sailors.
How can a marriage built on lies and secrets succeed?
This is an exciting book. There was suspense and danger and a lot of cloak and dagger activities. There were lies and plots and romance. Darby was a brave, bold girl. Rand certainly got more than he bargained for. He wanted an elegant wife by his side who knew nothing about his dual activities. And he certainly did not want a nosy, interfering, red-headed Scottish lass. Is he happy with what he got? Read it and find out.
This whole series is an amazing undertaking. I am reading it pretty much in order, but you can jump in anywhere. Take the plunge. You won't be sorry.

Darby is a headstrong, opinionated Scotswoman who has a problem with keeping her mouth shut when she gets riled up. Growing up in Scotland, near the English border, she was familiar with their customs & culture, their accents and behaviors. So when she sees a groom’s ad for an English woman, she’s sure that she can fake it. The only problem is the ad also specifically states that no Scotswoman needs to respond. So, now, she’ll just have to fake her accent and try to control her temper. But that’s easier said than done.
Rand needs a wife who is well-bred with high social standing, cultured and not one who will be argumentative or have undesirable qualities. He needs to keep up the façade of a wealthy businessman who may be looking to become a politician, because he has a dark secret to hide. During the nights Rand is the Phantom of the Shanghai Tunnels below Portland. He tries to control what goes on in the tunnels. He tries to rescue good men with families, and he has to let some slip through the cracks in order to keep up the Phantom’s brutal reputation.
All seems to be going well at first, but when truths come to light, these two are both stubborn and headstrong, and will blow up like fireworks.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book with the historical aspects explained and the re-imagination. The characters sparked and really held my attention.
