A scoundrel who lives in the shadows


Jack Turner grew up in the darkness of London’s slums, born into a life of crime and willing to do anything to keep his belly full and his siblings safe. Now he uses the tricks and schemes of the underworld to help those who need the kind of assistance only a scoundrel can provide. His distrust of the nobility runs deep and his services do not extend to the gorgeous high-born soldier who personifies everything Jack will never be. 


A soldier untarnished by vice


After the chaos of war, Oliver Rivington craves the safe predictability of a gentleman’s life—one that doesn’t include sparring with a ne’er-do-well who flouts the law at every turn. But Jack tempts Oliver like no other man has before. Soon his yearning for the unapologetic criminal is only matched by Jack’s pleasure in watching his genteel polish crumble every time they’re together. 


Two men meant only for each other

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Book Cleared My Skin And Paid All My Bills I bought this book after reading an excellent review for the third book in its series (I always have to start with the first book) and then finding that I couldn't get it on interlibrary loan. It was a good choice. Nay, the BEST choice. The book is phenomenal, well-written, and despite using a lot of elements that can make me roll my eyes in period romance, or just romance in general, it was a.) natural to the characters and neither stupid nor contrived and b.) resolved or dealt with in ways that were much more sensible, compelling, as well as markedly less melodramatic than typical. Seriously, this book made me get on this site and buy every book the author has written. Words - at least, words other than the ones contained within its covers - utterly fail to do it justice. So if you like romance, excellent writing in general, and/or a chance to read a queer story in a narrative often strictly confined to heterosexuality (or just one with a happy ending for once!), read this book. BUY this book. Buy ALL these books.

Editorial Reviews

Cat Sebastian sets a beautiful romance against a compelling story of blackmail, scandal and the impossibility of happily-ever-after... a reminder that love holds such power over us all.
