When her brother is arrested for murder, Marietta Winters finds herself shut out of the ton. No one would help her save him from the gallows until she met Gabriel Noble. In exchange for taking the case, Gabriel requests three favors from the desperate young beauty, and Marietta has no other choice but to make a deal with the devil.

Searching for clues in the rough underbelly of London, Marietta must masquerade as a shamelessly wanton wench, Gabriel's wench. But Marietta swears to herself that her passionate moans are just for show. She could never fall in love with such a maddening, arrogant, seductive stranger, at least that's what she keeps telling herself.

Night after night, they search for clues to her brother's innocence and uncover a murder spree that could dredge up more than a murderer. A scandal so big, it could ruin the lives of those close to them and a secret so horrid, they may never be able to overcome.

Dark, sensual, obsessive, sadistic...Anne Mallory has thrown it all in a story that will keep readers glued to the pages. I couldn't put it down! Dark and brooding, Gabriel is a total alpha-male with a past so horrible it will blow you away. Marietta has taken care of her brother's messes for so long, she has forgotten how to live, until she meets Gabriel and discovers her sensual nature and what it can bring to her life.

This has got to be my #1 pick for your Spring reading. It's sure to melt the ice from your roof and the snow from your driveway.

You don't want to miss out on this book!
