I love love historical romance but was a bit bored with this book.
Lazarus Huntington, Lord Caire is looking for a killer in St. Giles London unable to navigate the streets Huntington hires Temperance Dews, widow and care taker of orphan children, as his guide.
In return of Temperance helping Lazarus will introduce her to high society so she can find a benefactor for her orphanage. But of course when a single attractive “innocent” woman is around a well known ladies’ man things tend to heat up.
Temperance was very hard to like . . . honestly I’m pretty sure I didn’t like her. The author made her too innocent as if she was this saint and her sexy side needed to be released. Even when you discover her big secret it’s still like really . . .? Huntington was too cliché other than the fact he liked being tied up there was really nothing to him.
The story itself was slow. Granted there is not a whole lot of action in a historical romance I think that if a book involved alley hoping in the middle of the night, a killer and money it should thrill more than my sexual thoughts.
As for the sex scenes . . . let’s just say innocent or proper is not the term to use for Temperance.
Overall, the book gets 7 out of 10. I just wasn’t into it.
