From the Inside Flap
Lord Alec Knight, the most daring and handsome rogue in all of London, is a smooth-talking aristocrat with an abundance of high-society lady admirers. With his irresistible wit, lucky hand at the gaming tables, and enticing charisma, he can have any woman he wants. But when the only girl he would have considered marrying ties the knot with someone else, Alec realizes he doesn't want to be with just any lady-he wants to find the love of his life.
The boldly spirited, beautiful Miss Becky Ward takes his life by storm after he rescues her from peril. Alec soon learns that she is on the run from her cousin, the murderous Prince Mikhail Kurkov. Becky has uncovered a menacing secret about the prince-now nothing will stop him from hunting her down. In the midst of danger, Alec and Becky find themselves deeply drawn to each other. After the two spend an all-consuming night of sin, Becky's knight in shining armor vows on his honor to protect her until the end. But before long, Alec is protecting her with more than honor-and it seems the once untamed rake of London just may have found what he has been searching for all along . . . true love. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Becky, the heroine, is the ideal heroine. Strong where and when it counts, sometimes a damsel in distress (because really every hero needs a damsel in distress once in a while), smart, grounded and has an understanding of human nature hence she is able to embrace the whole of Alec, the hero. When Alec met the innocent/virginal heroine, he thought she was a prostitute. Circumstances revealed to him the danger and threat to Becky’s life so Alec took it upon himself to save her. That is the action/adventure part of the book - the process of Alec physically doing the small and big battles to save Becky. The love story unfolded when Becky ended up saving Alec from the burden of his past by offering her unconditional love. So we have two people in need of each other on different levels and they ended up being a perfect fit. The plot captivates and entertains. Given the title, yes there are lovemaking scenes. So if you want an entirely clean romance then this may not be for you. Do know that the plot of the book overshadows the sexy parts.
I will be trying another book from this series.
I wasn’t one of those people that didn’t like Alec from previous books. I liked Alec and was looking forward to his book and what Gaelen would create…but I was very disappointed. I found myself thinking that Alec was a spoiled jerk, and I never once thought that in any of the other Knight series he was in, even when he hurt Lizzie. The direction Gaelen went with for Alec’s character was hard for me to accept. He had this loving family and he had such a hard time loving. But then he seemed to see when other people were in love (with his brother Robert and then a friend of his) but then he was supposed to be this huge cynic. It just didn’t match.
Then, how he seemed to use sex to control…well that angered me.
Usually the females are strong characters and it seemed like Becky would be and in truth in some aspects she was strong but for Alec, I don’t see where they fit together. I felt like he needed someone stronger that wouldn’t put up with his crap but she seemed to just give in and all in the name of love and not pushing him too hard to show that she wasn’t like other women. But to me, just showed that she was like every other woman, being able to be controlled by him. It annoyed me and I had to put the book down several times just to take a break.
There were a couple of chapters that were really good and helped me to finish reading but the end was boring. The action that is usually in Gaelen’s didn't seem to be that and the "action" that she did was just boring, for me.
Gaelen is an amazing author and the historical details she gives and crafts in her stories are, usually amazing, and she did write this story well but I found the gambling boring, myself. I skimmed most of those parts.
So in summary; Gaelen’s writing was good but the story and character development was boring. This was my least favorite book of Gaelen’s.
The good news is that the next book in the series, His Wicked Kiss, is so far, a really good read and reminding me of many of the other books of Gaelen’s. I guess an author has to have at least one bad book. ☺
