When her brother was arrested for murder, the ton shut its doors to Marietta Winters. No one would help her save him from the gallows - no one but Gabriel Noble. In exchange for taking the case, Gabriel requests three favors from the desperate young beauty, and Marietta has no other choice but to make a deal with the sinfully handsome devil.
Three nights of pleasure...
Searching for clues in the rough underbelly of London, Marietta must masquerade as a shamelessly wanton wench - much to Gabriel's delight. But Marietta swears to herself that her passionate moans are just for show. She could never fall in love with such a maddening, arrogant, seductive stranger...could she?
Three nights of sin...
Night after night, she satisfies his wicked cravings. But soon Gabriel wants more from Marietta than just three nights of sin - and even a sordid secret in his past won't prevent him from trying to possess her forever.

Our hero is not a duke or an earl.
Gabriel is a butler's son that ran away from home at an early age. What he became was a man with money who helps people....for a price. We never know exactly what his limits are in what he will do for clients--which is interesting. He charges some people, but others will owe him 3 favors.
Gabriel is approached by the sister of an innocent man that's about to be convicted for a series of murders. The story, and romance, takes off from there. With lot's of twists (some leading back to Gabriel's past) and a heroine that is involved in the investigation *and* believable, this is an excellent book.
The narration was well done with one exception: There was more than one scene in which a character is supposed to whisper, and didn't. It seems like a small thing, but because of that error, there was no intensity where there should have been. Some scenes could have been much more emotional and memorable. This won't stop me from enjoying this story a second time. Overall, it was very well done.

Delightful Regency Romance with a Good Mystery
I don't understand the reviewers who thought this book wasn't romantic. I thought it had a very nice love story and a great mystery plot. Although I do enjoy a hot and steamy romance it sometimes comes with no real plot. With this gem of a book it had a great mystery with a side a romance. I guess you have to be in the mood for this type of book. If you just want hot and steamy you should read a Maya Banks book instead.
Don't be fooled by the awful cover art and title (who comes up with this stuff) this was a great book.
