Lady Julianne Bradley's dream is to marry for love, but her cold hearted parents are going to marry her off to the Duke of Eastling, who will take her to his estate in cornwall and leave her there. When thinking of her imaginary love, Julianne always pictures Bow Street Runner Gideon Mayne who she met 2 months earlier during a murder enquiry. Gideon also has feelings for Julianne but knows he is far beneath her. His face is what Julianne sees when she reads the latest novel from her book club, the Ladies Literary Society of London do not read boring, acceptable books. The books they read are very sexually explicit and they are now reading "The Ghost of Devonshire Manor". All of london are talking of The Ghost Thief who is robbing and murdering titled women. While at a ball Julianne follows Gideon to the garden, too embarressed to tell him why she pursued him, she lies and says that she heard the Ghost thief in her house. Her father hires Gideon to protect her, now poor Gideon has to watch the woman he wants day and night and never have her, but it soon appears that Julianne really is in danger.

Full of sexual tension and I know some reviewers have issue with Gideon being coarse but I didn,t after all he is an ordinary bloke and not supposed to be refined. Great sex scenes and a lovely romance plus cameos from the characters from the previous books.
