When shy and secluded author Sara Fielding ventures from her country cottage to research a novel, she inadvertently witnesses a crime in progress—and manages to save the life of the most dangerous man in London.

Derek Craven is a powerful and near-legendary gambling club owner who was born a bastard and raised in the streets. His reputation is unsavory, his scruples nonexistent. But Sara senses that beneath Derek's cynical exterior, he is capable of a love more passionate than her deepest fantasies.

Aware that he is the last man that an innocent young woman should ever want, Derek is determined to protect Sara from himself, no matter what it takes. But in a world where secrets lurk behind every shadow, he is the only man who can keep her safe. And as Derek and Sara surrender to an attraction too powerful to deny, a peril surfaces from his dark past to threaten their happiness . . . and perhaps even their lives.

Together they will discover if love is enough to make dreams come true.



Baker & Taylor
When fate brings lovely and sheltered country lass Sara Fielding and tough, Cockney-bred millionaire Derek Craven together, an unlikely and unstoppable passion brings them ever closer to love. By the author of Then Came You. Original.

DNF. The heroine is portrayed as inherently morally and intellectually superior to the sex workers whose stories she exploits for her own purposes, which is bad enough, but the first sex worker character we're introduced to is depicted as too foolish to understand the difference between fiction and nonfiction. Seriously? Yikes.

This is apparently Lisa Kleypas' favorite of all the heroes she has written. While I can't go so far as to say I prefer him over Sebasian from 'Devil in Winter' (swoon!), I do understand the appeal. Derek Craven is fascinating -- he's risen from nothing, built a gambling empire, even managed to hide his cockney accent. I do wish the heroine had been sliiiiiiightly more well-drawn, but she's compelling enough in her own way, albeit a bit of a romance trope, and watching them fall in love is extremely satisfying, even if the end result feels slightly inevitable? (I know it's a romance novel, but still.) All in all, an extremely readable and enjoyable Regency, so long as you don't think too hard about it.

I just hate this idea of a doe-eyed, intelligent (b/c spectacles and poor fashion sense must mean she's smart, right?), innocent and completely oblivious heroine getting together with the dark, broody hero. Oh, but this hero is special b/c he has a heart of gold who can't let a lady be inconvenienced. But the rest of woman (and man) kind is fair deal, I guess? I mean it's not like he had to use and abuse, and go about doing shady things to rise to the top, eh?

Good historical romance. The storyline pulls you in from the first few pages. A great page turner!
