Publisher's Summary

When Cathy Connor and Eamonn Docherty are thrown together as children in the East End their fate is sealed. Cathy's miserable life as a prostitute's child changes forever when she's forced into care. The ordeal that follows leaves her with no choice but to run away to Soho, and she learns to survive in the violent heart of London's underworld. Meanwhile, Eamonn, who fled to New York, has gained a reputation as a ruthless villain. But when their paths cross again, Cathy is an equal match for Eamonn - and nothing's going to make her run away this time...

This was a brilliant listen, really riveting- I listened to it twice!!! Definately recommend! The plot evolved all the way through with no hint of the ending!

Just the right mix of violence and romance

In my opinion one of Martina's better story lines, violent but not too much so, I loved the characters even though they resemble ones from previous books.
