Library Journal Review

Lucien Durand, Lord Bolt, reportedly drowned in the Thames a decade ago, so when he arrives the Grand Palace on the Thames inquiring about a room, his presence delivers quite the shock. Even the quick-witted, self-possessed proprietor Angelique Breedlove, who finds him as dangerous as he is handsome, is shaken. Lucien has returned to London to claim revenge on certain high-ranking members of society for past wrongs and is determined that nothing stand in his way, including Angelique's exacting house rules. When the two share a scorching kiss, Angelique senses that Lucien could easily destroy her hard-won independence, as his quest for a very public vengeance would lead to her downfall. VERDICT With a sizzling romance, an intriguing revenge plot, and a cast of quirky Palace guests, this next installment of Long's luscious new series is smart and deliciously sensual. Fans will devour this title, while newcomers will immediately want to track down the first book (Lady Derring Takes a Lover).--Kellie Tilton, Univ. of Cincinnati Blue Ash
