"You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel."
His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. "You are not alone," he said.

Portia Chadwick knows she'll never have a life of adventure. But when a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger―and unexpected passion.

Dell Turner grew up in London's back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society's elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful young lady, he doesn't anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation...or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She's as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can't bring himself to turn Portia away... even if it means risking her life.

This is a unique series with three sisters. In the first three books, each sister has an intertwining story giving unique perspectives to the same time span. So having read The Untouchable Earl #2 I found this book extremely interesting from Portia's viewpoint. The whole series to date is handled very well.

Dell Turner fascinates me. Everything about him is unique and refreshing. He isn't a typical main male character and this adds to his mysteriousness causing this reader to fall for him. Also, his rough edges and intriguing personality add much needed depth to the plot. I do like that he is from the other side of the tracks making his current lifestyle admirable.

Portia really cracks me up and her character adds flavor to this book. There are times I want to laugh at how her mind thinks and how Dell reacts to her but I really love her frankness and how intelligent she is. I wish more women were as determined and free thinking as she is.

Portia's sisters are prominent in this book and seeing their reactions from Portia's eyes is fun and interesting. Also seeing their personalities without being in their head like the other books it quite amazing.

I give this 4 STARS for being fast paced and unique.

Received an advance reader copy in exchange for a fair review.

My Reviews Of The Fallen Ladies Series

Luck Is No Lady #1- Not Reviewed
The Untouchable Earl #2 - My Review
Lord Of Lies #3 - My Review
No Kind of Lady #4 - Coming Soon

Amy's love of romance began one summer when she was thirteen and complained of boredom. She ended up with one of her mother's Barbara Cartland books and an obsessive interest that expanded from there. Her affinity for writing began with sappy pre-teen poems and led to a Bachelor's degree with an emphasis on Creative Writing from the University of Minnesota--Twin Cities.

She writes in the early mornings while her young kids are still asleep and dreams of a future when she can write all day instead of going to her "other" job. In the evenings, Amy is a full-time wife and mother who enjoys pizza, wine and dark brooding heroes...namely, her husband.
