Loretta Chase's third work, after Isabella and The English Witch. She's still not gotten into the swing of magnificence that is her later stuff. This reads like an earlier work; the plot is a bit scattershot. It keeps jumping off in odd directions. Whorehouse - dressmakers - Almack's - it's all over the place.
It does start off with a bang, though, her heroine has been abducted by a madam and is confronted with the hero as her, ehm, first customer. Gotta give Chase credit for the innovatie introductions.
