Sexual situations (many!) may offend some readers
Seriously writers, hire an editor. A GOOD one. Accept their criticism and learn. Red pen means you'll get better.
Unfortunately once you get past all that, there is only the tiniest thread of a good plot. Then we're dealing with someone who doesn't actually know much of the era she's writing about, thinks Stockholm Syndrome, near rape, touching a non-consenting unconscious person is romantic, etc.
Our heroine starts off as a bit of a bada**, she is smart and cunning, and just falls apart. Not for a strong worthy man, but for the 'damaged a*****e'. Seriously, our 'hero' is deeply damaged, and is a right b*****d. I wanted to punch him in the face myself! I know we were trying to 'fix' him (seriously, cliché central), but he never actually changed. He was still a damaged a*****e and nearly got her killed.
I am not a (insert your chosen derogatories here for too soft, PC, etc) and I do enjoy some strong alpha male types but this book was awful. The non-consensual touching added nothing to the plot. The heroine clearly had Stockholm since even the slightest niceties had her throwing herself at him and his 'rakeheck' friends while in captivity to settle a score with her only family member. The brother thing was waaaaaaay too clear, that's not foreshadowing, that's bashing it at the reader with a sledgehammer. And the 'ZOMG YOU'RE CRYING I CAN'T DO YOU CAUSE YOU'RE NOT PLAYING, OOPS!' thing? Ugh. Just no.
While I really like historical romances, especially set amongst London's Ton. This one is a hard pass. A VERY HARD PASS. I finished it, but it was like choking down liver, Brussels sprouts, and tripe all wrapped in an escargot, blood pudding, and haggis pie. If it had been well edited and not had so many of the clichés and tropes, the plot might have been slightly redeemed. Unfortunately the plot stretches the bounds of credulity, not in a good way, and can only be believed by people who think Twilight or 50 Shades is good writing. I don't think coating the manuscript in red pen would have done enough to fix this.
The most redeeming feature? It was free

The flow of the story was not as smooth as it could have been ,but passable.
