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.

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.
