Synopsis:

The Governess coverRivalry, romance, and scandal run hot in this Wicked Wallflowers novel from USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell.

Regina (Reggie) Spark has loved Broderick Killoran, the resourceful and protective proprietor of the Devil’s Den, ever since he saved her from the streets and made her his right hand at the notorious gaming hell. For just as long, Reggie has never admitted her true feelings for him. Nor has she revealed her spirited ambitions—to buck convention and expectations and open a music hall.

While Broderick built his gaming empire with ruthless cunning, his loyalty to his employees is boundless. So when he learns of Reggie’s plan to leave his side and take charge of her own future, the betrayal cuts Broderick to the core. He responds as he would to any business rival…with swift retribution.

Instead of wilting, the savvy Reggie rebounds with a fury that shocks Broderick and stirs a desire he’s been holding in reserve for only ladies of nobility. But as their seductive battle of wills ignites under the harsh spotlight of the London Season, secrets are exposed as well—ones that could be ruinous in decent society but invaluable for the heart.

My Thoughts:

But as their seductive battle of wills ignites under the harsh spotlight of the London Season, secrets are exposed as well—ones that could be ruinous in decent society but invaluable for the heart.

This book is an unusual one that contains no noble blooded main characters. I read it rather quickly and enjoyed the various twists and turns contained.
As I said it is an unusual read but a good one.
I gave this book 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and character development. It is not what I have come to expect of historical romance of this time period but a good read none the less.
I received a complimentary copy of this book to read via NetGalley.
This in no way affected my opinion of this book which I have read and reviewed voluntarily.

Publisher’s Description:

USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell pits a fiercely independent beauty against a devilish investigator.

Set apart by her ethereal beauty and fearless demeanor, Ophelia Killoran has always been a mystery to those around her—and a woman they underestimated. No one would guess that she spends her nights protecting the street urchins of St. Giles. Ophelia knows what horrors these children face. As a young girl, she faced those horrors herself, and she would have died…if not for the orphan boy who saved her life.

A notorious investigator, Connor Steele never expected to encounter Ophelia Killoran on his latest case. It has been years since he sacrificed himself for her. Now, she hires orphans from the street to work in her brother’s gaming hell. But where does she find the children…and what are her intentions?

Ophelia and Connor are at odds. After all, Connor now serves the nobility, and that is a class of people Ophelia knows firsthand not to trust. But if they can set aside their misgivings and work together, they may discover that their purposes—and their hearts—are perfectly aligned.

My Thoughts:

This book has an Oliver Twist feel to the plot and was an enjoyable read. Our Oliver Twist character in this case is a woman bent on rescuing orphans even if it is to put them to work in her brother’s gaming hell. Where are all of these orphans coming from and what are Ophelia’s true intentions?

Conner was at one point Ophelia’s rescuer but now does he trust her or not?

As usual this Christi Caldwell story is laced with mystery, intrigue and love. Christi stuns her readers with a fascinating story of love and triumph over evil.

I gave this latest book 4.45 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3 of 5 flames. Rape is not sensual but it is a part of this well written tale.

I received a complimentary digital ARC of this book from the publisher via NetGalley to read and review. This in no way affected my opinion of this title which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
