Book Review

Eva Leigh launches her seductive new Scandalous Ladies of London series…

‘It’s not my habit to seduce impoverished widows…’

The Duke of Greyland lost his heart – and a princely sum – to a charming, beautiful and destitute widow who, after one passionate night, vanished without a trace. Cassandra Blair grew up on the city streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a rich mark – to be fleeced and forgotten – only she’d never forgotten him.
Years later, chance brings them together again, in a London gaming hell. Grayland is desperate to have her… never suspecting everything about his lover was a lie. But finding herself in dire financial straits, at risk of losing everything, Cassandra has no choice but to beg the man she betrayed for help.
The proud Duke will assist her under one condition: she doesn’t leave his sight until her debts are paid! But can the real Cassandra – the smart, streetwise survivor – steal his heart all over again?

Eva Leigh is a new author to me, so I wasn't sure what to expect.  What I got was a handsome duke and a woman who had to lie to get what she wants.

For me the book started slow...but it does pick up, especially when Cassandra and Alex meet.  Overall its a good book, but it didn't wow me.  This is a trope that I have read before and have found enjoyable...but for me this book left me feeling that something was missing.

If you are a fan of Ms Leigh's books, then you will like it.  The next question is would I read other books by Eva Leigh, I'm willing to read other books by Ms Leigh.

So the stars I give will be 4/5, which isn't too bad.

This book is available to buy from Amazon UK and all other retailers.

I received this book from Netgalley for Mills and Boon Insiders.  In return for a honest review.
