Lady Bernadette Marie Burton may be the richest widow in England, but like her dreams of finding true passion, her reputation is deteriorating. Cruel gossip, loneliness, and hordes of opportunistic suitors have her believing society couldn't be more vile…or dangerous. So when an attacker threatens her life, she finds safety in the most unseemly of places: the arms of a mysterious, Irish-American gang leader.
His fortune stolen, young Matthew Milton is done playing the respectable gentleman. In the slums of New York, only ruffians thrive. But from the moment he arrives in London and encounters the voluptuous Lady Bernadette, he can't help but wonder about the finer pleasures he's missing. Or just how much he's willing to risk - not only to bed her, but to prove his worth….

Glad it's over!
The narrator for one. I think she did a pretty good job with the narration for Matthew, but I didn't not like her voice for Bernadette. I think she did a better Irish accent than British accent.
I also didn't really care for the story of Bernadette. It was kind of boring. The last few chapters of the book were rather boring.
I thought that Bernadette's recovery after 4 tankards of gin was extremely unbelievable. The morning after being almost gang raped and forced to drink all of the gin, it was as if she was not affected in the least.
I did not like the proposal scene or accompanying sex scene. I just was not crazy about much of this book although I did like Matthew's character and his story. Seems a little odd, but Matthew's story was very good, it's just that the rest of the book didn't stand up to his story.
This was a gamble that hit the Jackpot
