Lady Elizabeth Grafton was abducted at age 5 while playing in Hyde Park. She was tricked into playing kick ball and taken to live with a Flash Gang of thieves. 15 years later Sir Brook Derring who is know as the hero of Bow Street has been hired to find her and he does. He re kidnaps Elizabeth, AKA now know as Marlowe and throws her in a carriage with his brother Maxwell Derring the Earl of Dane. Maxwell is asked to take Marlowe to there home and keep her there until his brother Brook can notify the Marquess of Lyndon and Lady Lyndon that he has found there long lost missing daughter. This begins a Madcap adventure of Marlowe upsetting the refined dignified household of the Earl of Dane. It's the beginning of a snob falling in love with his lesser or a person he believes is far below his own station in life.
I loved Elizabeth/Marlowe and I just wished the author had spent more time on letting the reader see the relationship develop between Marlowe and her Long lost Parents. This doesn't happen until the very end of the story. The ending is rushed and the next thing you read after she meets her parents is she is married to the Earl. There is no real thought given to what could have been a great ending. Thus 4 stars instead of 5.
Dane was probably one of the most amusing heroes I have read in quite awhile. His reactions to Marlowe were very funny. He has been so proper for so long and she is just what he needs to remember how to live. He has a heart of gold buried under all that stuffiness and with Marlowe he finds it. He was not perfect. In fact his reaction to her question about if he would marry her if she was Lady Elizabeth really disappointed me. He prides himself on being a gentleman so his reaction seemed out of character.
Marlowe was very entertaining too. She has been raised in a flash house in St Giles. She is a thief and has no manners at all. She is a very protective of the other cubs and really doesn't want to be a thief. Seeing her transformation into a lady was very amusing and touching.
I liked Dane's sister Susanna and am looking forward to her book. I don't know how I feel about Gideon being the hero - considering his feelings for Marlowe - I am not a big fan of heroes who love someone else. But Ms Galen has had heroes like this before, so I have faith that she can make it work.
Marlowe is a young woman living in the slums as part of a gang of young boys and controlled by Satin, a ruthless leader. She was kidnapped as a very young child and raised by Satin for her abilities to add to Satin's take as a thief. A Bow Street Runner, Lord Broke identifies her as the missing Lady Elizabeth Layton and kidnaps her; he leaves her in the care of his brother, Maxwell, Lord Dane.
It is an interesting story full of social change ideas while presenting the story with lots of mystery to prove Marlowe is really Lady Elizabeth and a romance too. There was never a dull moment in this one and lots of laughs too as conflict is handled with humor.
Marlowe lives in the dangerous slums of Seven Dials, she is a thief, a pickpocket and a virgin at the age of twenty. She speaks so much cockney in the beginning of this book, but then her speech "poof" smooths out quite quickly. NOT believable.
And yet the author has created a spunky female character who you want to have a happy ending. hero is funny and charming too. Lots of great banter between them. Two quick sex scenes later in book, not overdone. I felt both their characters were fleshed out well. I would recommend it.
Also, picture on book and name of book did not gel with the story. So, if you like a Cinderella story read it.
I may read the next book in this series if it involves Gideon getting his HEA!
