Three Nights of Sin
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.
This ended up being exactly ...more

Iba bien, juro que iba bien, pero llegó un momento en el que el reader tembló en mis manos por las ganas que tenía de arrojarlo contra la pared.
No me gusta Marietta, aunque entiendo sus principales recelos, no creo que eso lo explique todo, peeeero tiene un punto.
Gabriel, es difícil. Me parece sorprendente la forma en que hizo su camino, la forma en que logró todo lo que tiene ahora. Es admirable su capacidad de resiliencia.
I've read Anne Mallory before but picked this one up not realizing she was an author I had previous experience with. It was a lovely reminder.
This Mallory masterpiece was absolutely, overwhelmingly compelling. I could not put it down, to the point that it caused me physical discomfort to not be reading it.
Marietta has a big problem. Her younger brother was framed for a murder and with the Winters' hou ...more
Though the novel's premise wasn't particularly original (self-sacrificing girl in dire straits throws herself at the mercy of a powerful man for the greater good of her family), I found that the plot was just dark and twisty enough to keep things interesting. I appreciated that Mallory wasn't afraid to bend the norms and explore the se ...more
Definitely not your average historical romance. This book deals with a far grittier reality than that of ton balls and vouchers to Almacks. The protagonists are barely part of society (him) or clinging to the fringe of society (her). The book opens with Marietta going to Gabriel in desperation to ask his help in proving her 18 year old brother innocent of a series of Jack the Ripper-like murders. Their relationship develops as she collaborates with him to search for evidence that could ...more
I have to reread this one! This is a wonderfully written book with an interesting characters and unpredictable plot. My only complaint at the end was how late I realized these qualities. I failed to see the appeal of the book at first but halfway through things took a different turn. The book completely took me by surprise, left me quite pleased and a little bit baffled about my stupidity in not recognizing the gem standing in front of my eyes the who ...more

I really enjoyed the H/h. Their personalities and quirks and their journey throughout the book. I also really enjoyed the murder mystery and the way in which it was solved. I thought the romance development was great and the intimate scenes were fantastic (in particular, a scene involving a kitchen table). But there is just something that held it back from being truly 5 stars. Maybe my emotions just weren't engaged in the story enough...
But it w ...more
Mr. Noble has a very useful skill set, you see. Think Sherlock Holmes meets The Godfather. He has an in ...more
Successful Buddy Read with Grace!
Great, three-dimensional characters with depth, super-steamy chemistry between the H/h. Alpha-hero, version: tortured. Strong, willfull heroine à la hidden beauty with questionable reputation to her family. Well written suspense/crime plot, overshadowing the romance sometimes but still captivating and without too much drama/angst and unrealistic development.
He also won’t take jobs for anyone who is guilty. He’s maybe an early Sherlock Holmes, kind of? Not a lot of this book made sense to me. I couldn’t work how anyone would be getting their money’s worth out of Gabriel if they paid him ten grand, without getting him ...more
I loved the verbal sparring between Mariette and Gabriel. I was looking forward to reading about at least 1 of the favors Gabriel would get from Mariette, so the ending was a little disap ...more
