Publisher's Summary

Marlowe is a pickpocket, a housebreaker - and a better actress than any professional on the stage. She runs with the Covent Garden Cubs, a gang of thieves living in the slums of London's Seven Dials. It's a fierce life, and Marlowe has a hard outer shell. But when she's alone, she allows herself to think of a time before - a dimly remembered life when she was called Elizabeth.
Maxwell, Lord Dane, is intrigued when his brother, a hired investigator, ropes him into his investigation of the fiercely beautiful hellion. He teaches her to navigate the social morass of the ton, but Marlowe will not escape so easily. Instead Dane is drawn into her dangerous world, where the student becomes the teacher and love is the greatest risk of all.

Love love love this!

Oh my, I loved this! I fell in love with Elizabeth as a 5-year old. She loved pink, she loved being 5, she loved it when her mother put her to bed instead of nanny. What a sweet little girl. Then her life is changed dramatically.

I did not want this book to end. I truly loved it. The characters were wonderful There were laugh-out-loud funny lines and then tearful emotional points. Marlowe was a fish out of water at the Earl's townhouse after living most of her life in the rookeries. Her relationship with Dane develops over (little) time and, of course, he helps to end her life of crime.

The end is touching. The narrator of the audiobook did a fabulous job with this.

My favorite Shana Galen book yet.

Crazy ride!

This was a great story with a lot of twist and turns. A real life Cinderella story that takes place in the 1800's. Worth the credit.
