Another beautiful, exciting addition to The Maiden Lane Series. Not only do you get to read a wonderful book full of remarkable characters and a story that will keep you enthralled throughout the whole book, you also get a truly original fairy tale that runs throughout the book at the beginning of every charter. That is one of the many reasons that I love Elizabeth Hoyt's writing. She is truly a writer with a vivid imagination and a writes with a unique style and flair that is rather amazing. The Maiden Lane Series is in my opinion one of the best ever in the Historical Romance Genre and I hope it goes on for a long time, I will never get tired of reading about the hero's and heroines who live in Elizabeth's stories. This story was an truly sensational in the scope of the two main protagonists..Eve and Asa...Eve is the sister of the villain in the previous Maiden Lane book and Asa is a member of the Makepeace family who has been a part of all the Maiden Lane Series. They are raw, vulnerable, flawed individuals who find common ground together and defeat their personal demons together. Also the language during the sex scenes are graphic and very hot! I enjoyed this book very much and cannot wait for Val's and Bridget's story!!!
