From the Back Cover
Eva Leigh launches a seductive new series that sizzles with the dark secrets of London’s underworld . . .
Years ago, the Duke of Greyland gave his heart—and a princely sum of money—to a charming, destitute widow with unparalleled beauty. After one passionate night, she slipped from his bed and vanished without a trace. And just when he’s given up hope of ever seeing her again, Greyland finds her managing a gaming hell. He’s desperate to have her . . . until he discovers everything about his long-lost lover was a lie.
In truth, Cassandra Blake grew up on the streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a mark—to be fleeced and forgotten—but her feelings for the duke became all too real. Once he learns of her deception, however, the heat in his eyes turns to ice. When her business partner absconds with the gaming hell proceeds—leaving unsavory investors out for blood—Cassandra must beg the man she betrayed for help.
Greyland wants compensation, too, and he’ll assist her under one condition: she doesn’t leave his sight until her debts are paid. But it’s not long before the real Cassandra—the smart, streetwise criminal—is stealing his heart all over again.

Alex, The Duke of Greyland has known only duty and honor his whole life. From a very young age his father drilled into his head the duties, responsibilities of what it means to be a Duke of the Realm.
He was raised by servants and tutors, if his parents loved him it was at best, tepid. He picked out the perfect young lady to be marry and become his Duchess and bear him children. The only problem is that she eloped with a poor soldier and left him open to gossip and speculation, which he will not tolerate.
To prove to Society that he is not hiding and nursing a broken heart he agrees to join his two friends at a new Gaming Hell that has just opened. While there he hears a woman laugh that brings back the only time in his life where his heart and mind connected with another human being. She was a widow who he spent time with over two years ago. The last time he saw her was in his bed after they had made love. He fell asleep with her in his arms and when he woke up the next day she was gone. It was like he lost his heart and soul when she left. He never felt that way about a woman ever.
When he finds out that everything he knew about her was a lie, he vows revenge. But when she comes to him for help, will he be able to turn her away? The journey that Eva takes these characters on is engaging, intensely emotional and dangerous. Can they both put aside there prejudices about each other classes and have a HAE. This is a story of an adventure that will have you reading late into the night.
Cassandra Blake was raised in poverty, spent time in debtor’s prison before her father’s death, and learned to survive by her wits and the careful tutelage of a man who taught her the confidence game. Successful and even a bit angry at those who have everything without seeming to notice or care for those who have less, she’s been successful and mostly unidentified until now. For Greyland spots her, the ‘widow’ he’d lost his heart to that night – and the game is on. Particularly when Cassandra has a run of bad luck and a clever twist that brings her to the place of mark, not trickster.
Oh this was fun – surprisingly difficult to like Alex wholeheartedly at first as he was SO uptight, but as he allows himself to recognize his feelings, and starts to share with Cassandra, he demands that you embrace him…. After all, he is just wanting love. And Cassandra: while the whole scamming people to survive was uncomfortable, as her history unfolded combined with the fact that she is a woman in a time when options are severely limited, she becomes sympathetic. Especially after she is placed in the place of her marks, and realizes just how dispiriting and destructive her cons had been. With a touch of mystery tossed in as Cassandra’s mentor steps up to threaten, and a surprisingly dirty talking hero once this slow burn romance starts to spark, I couldn’t help but enjoy the book. If you want something just a bit different, with a heroine that you can’t help but enjoy and appreciate despite her past, this is the book for you.
I received an eArc copy of the title from the publisher via Edelweiss for purpose of honest review. I was not compensated for this review: all conclusions are my own responsibility.
