They in turn make Thomas responsible for her safety. Once there Bessie has to learn to navigate a way of life far outside anything she has experienced before.

Une belle romance historique avec un enchaînement d’événements assez palpitants. On ne s’ennuie pas une minute. Il manque pour ma part un soupçon de sensualité pour en faire une petite perle mais cela reste comme je vous le disais un détail tant l’histoire m’a plu. C’est pourquoi j’attends avec impatience le tome 3 qui fera la part belle à Rob le Noir.
