A woman compelled. A man obsessed. A love that defies king and country.
In the glittering world of Regency England, Anne Wilder plays a dangerous game. A widowed lady by day, by night she becomes a masked thief preying on society's elite. She roves high above London's black rooftops, compelled by phantoms from her past to take ever greater risks. Until her restless spirit led her into Colonel Jack Seward's trap...where seduction may be her only way out.
She'd played him for a fool, taking advantage of his hungry response to escape from his clutches. But as Jack hunts for the thief, his heart falls captive to a self-possessed widow. Torn between illicit passion and tender love, Jack is duty-bound to capture the audacious criminal, even if it means ripping society apart to do so. Now, he stalked her through the ton, never realizing the lovely widow who captured his heart was the same woman who roused his most violent passions.

Would be great if not for the narrator
As a huge fan of Connie Brockway, any new audiobook from Connie Brockway would be an automatic buy for me. But I'm very sorry: not if it's narrated by Alison Larkin again.
I read this novel some time ago and found it really wonderful. But I just couldn't finish the audiobook because of the narrator's voice.
I'm sure Alison Larkin is a nice lady, but as a narrator for romance for me she doesn't do the trick. She doesn't have the voice to narrate a sweet, sensual love story like this one. She's probably more suitable for Agatha Christies or something of the kind. Mrs. Larkin didn't give the characters any depth which I loved when reading the novel.
I was very happy that finally more of Conie Brockways books were being published as audiobooks. Dear Audible, could you please pick another narrator like Justine Eyre, Rosalyn Landor or Susan Duerden?
Dark and delicious as chocolate. A classic.
