Editorial Reviews

Review

-- A USA Today Bestseller --

"For this impressive Victorian romance, Matthews (The Viscount and the Vicar's Daughter) crafts a tale that sparkles with chemistry and impresses with strong character development... Matthews combines authentic period touches with building sexual tension in an excellent series launch that will appeal to fans of Loretta Chase and Stephanie Laurens." -Publishers Weekly

"Matthews' (The Pug Who Bit Napoleon, 2018, etc.) series opener is a guilty pleasure, brimming with beautiful people, damsels in distress, and an abundance of testosterone...It's a well-written and engaging story that's more than just a romance." -Kirkus Reviews

"Matthews (The Viscount and the Vicar's Daughter) has a knack for creating slow-building chemistry and an intriguing plot with a social history twist." -Library Journal

"An intriguing plot and a haunting setting leaves the reader immersed in this impressive series launch." -Barnes & Noble (20 Favorite Indie Books of 2018)

"I savored every word of this wonderful historical romance and didn't want it to end...I'm so happy to have discovered Mimi Matthews and recommend to all who love fantastic well written, character driven Regency and Victorian era romances. She's brilliant!" -Jane Porter, NYT and USA Today bestselling author

"A heart-rending Gothic love story, with a strong yet vulnerable heroine you want to hug and cheer for. The hero has the dark past of Mr. Rochester and the tightly leashed emotion of Mr. Darcy, but is a true romantic hero in every sense of the word. The historical atmosphere is top-notch, as is the writing. I loved it!" -Caroline Linden, USA Today bestselling author

"A highly enjoyable Victorian-sensation style romance...I enjoyed every minute of this warm, charming book." -KJ Charles, editor and RITA-nominated author
