Publisher's Summary

London, 1810: After the tragic death of her beloved, Hester Aspinall vowed never to be ruled by her passions again. Still, she is drawn to her landlord, handsome adventurer Thomas Ramsay - but she doesn't fool herself that a man of his station would look twice at a poor tailor's sister.
With the sea for a mistress, Thomas has no intention of entering into matrimony. And yet, he can't get the plain-spoken and desirable Hester out of his mind, even though she's never tried to secure his attentions as other women do.
Everything changes the night Hester's brother is arrested during a raid on a gay brothel, the infamous White Swan. With no one else to turn to, and terrified Robert will hang for his crime, Hester accepts Thomas' offer to bear the cost of the defense. A true gentleman, Thomas expects nothing in return - but Hester can no longer deny her own desires....
She may offer her body eagerly, but can she protect her heart?

Debatable

The overall substance of this book was good and kept my interest throughout. The performance was one of the best I've heard in Rita Fox. For me, one of the issues contained in this book is debatable and what one accepts and one doesn't will have a large bearing on how people will view this book.
I was uncomfortable with it at first but was able to carry on through the book.
This is a differently written historical romance, coming to the very edge of a few social issues.
