Publisher's Summary

Douglas "Devil" Radcliffe has spent years carving out Devil's Acre, an area where the titled and entitled lords of London come to play. But when Queen Victoria proposes a reformation plan to the House of Lords that would have the wretched souls of nearby St. Giles moving into his territory, Devil sets out to buy, bribe, and steal the votes he needs to stop her. One vote short and running out of time, Devil has Lord Edwards's daughter kidnapped and held captive. The price of her freedom? Lord Edwards's vote.
As Lord Edwards's daughter, Jacqueline's life was defined at the moment of her birth. Growing up in the shadow of her mother's death in childbirth, she has spent years trying to make it up to her father. Now a grown woman, she is torn between her duty to her father and her desire for a life of her own. Irrevocably changed after her kidnapping, Jacqueline tries to put the pieces of her life back together only to find they no longer fit.
WARNING: This story explores the darker side of romance and may contain content some readers find disturbing.

Great read

I took a chance on a new author and narrator and they go together like peanut butter and jelly, what a pleasant surprise. I really loved this book. Non stop excitement I could not put it down. This historical romance is not soft and sweet or petty and pink. It's a bit dark and so is Devil (hero) and I was routing for him all the way. Jacqueline is nice and very sweet but don't mistake her for weak. This author reminds me of Lorraine Heath's work. The narrator is a gem. She pulled off rough and roofless as well as petty and pink characters and she did it well. Michaela brought this book to life. This audio is the only one on Audible. I hope that will change. I'm looking forward to books written by Jennifer and narrated by Michaela.

Very interesting and different, in a good way!

This was a good book, a little different than what I am used to in a historical romance novel. The hero and heroine were both strong and had good chemistry. There is plenty of action going on throughout the book, some unsavory. There was lots of dialogue.
There was OMG moments as well.
I thought it was all in all a good book. Not a long book so no filler moments.

The narrator did a really great job. The men sounded like men, and the rest of the characters had their own distinctive voice. Kudos to Michaela James for a great narration.
