Set in Regency England Sabrina Shields is a widow whose husband was brutally killed while in a theatre. Once she is through with her mourning, she meets Dane Darling, a charming rogue who, along with his brother, Nicolas, and best friend, Casper, has control of a fiendish gaming hell in London. Soon the three rakes begin a competition to see who can get the young widow in bed first.

However, things go awry. Casper, deeply involved in the underworld of England, discovers there are dark secrets in Sabrinas past. Not only that, there are hints that Sabrinas own husband was involved in the underworld and was brutally murdered because of his business deals with the criminals in the underworld.

When Sabrinas father takes a hand in her life, unhappy with her association with the Darlings and Casper, a sudden alteration in everyones plans causes trouble for Sabrina, her brother, and the entire Darling family.

The only problem I have with the marvel of this chapter is that you don't seem to have immersed yourself into Regency language; at one point you use that awful word 'nice' in succeeding paragraphs.
Am looking forward to reading the rest.

An intriguing plot; I will add to my favourites so that I can read it again.
One thing that worries me as a reader is the introduction of modern conversation to a Regency setting. I would have been happier to see more of the British understatement which is so much a part of the aristocratic style.

Oh wow. I REALLY like this. You are an amazingly talented writer. I felt sad for Sabrina in the beginning. That was a great twist that I never saw coming with Leon. I was shocked that he faked his own death like that. I guess guys really cant admit their feelings until the last minute huh? But ladies first. Sabrina was brave to say that and then turn away. I thought it was sneaky she did that.

Overall, really great stor. I will continue reading and I added this to my favorites. Post more SOON please!
