OrangeReviewStarLethal assassin Christopher Argent has never let his emotions get in the way of an assignment. When he is hired to take out one of the stage's newest stars, Millicent LeCour, however, he is caught by her innocence and her love for her son—and realizes that if he doesn't kill her, he must instead claim her as his own. Still, someone does want Millie dead, and it will take all of Christopher's skill, ingenuity, and connections to keep her safe.
VERDICT Formulating a lyrical style, sterling character development, and a palpable sense of time and place, Byrne pens another fascinating romance that delves deeply into the darker and decadent side of Victorian London. A stellar addition to a truly mesmerizing series that highlights dangerous heroes who flout the law and the women who love them. Byrne (The Highwayman) lives at the base of the Rockies.
