Charlotte Chatsworth is the perfect lady. She says all the right things, and exudes a cool aura of confidence. She is beautiful and has the highest reputation in the ton, and she is expected to marry someone high with an immense amount of money and preferably a title. Charlotte despises the cool person she has become but she does all this so that her sister will not suffer the same fate. A mother her doesn't care for her and a father who is trying to sell her for the highest bitter to cover his gambling debts and the lack of money the family is currently suffering from.

Roman Merrick is co-leader of a hell gambling hall. He is one of the leaders of the underworld of London and has his fingers in all things. He has seen Charlotte from a far and when the opportunity to spend a night with her comes up he refuses to let any other man take it. Charlotte's father is often a patron of Roman's gambling halls and when another man wagers one night with Charlotte to a high amount of money Charlotte's drunk father accepts, but loses the bet to Roman.

From here starts a romance that neither saw coming. The one person Charlotte wants a future with she can't have because she would be disgraced from society and ruin any chances her sister has. Roman must protect Charlotte from the dangers of being involved with him and his world, but does that mean what's best for Charlotte is to be away from Roman?

This book was definitely well written. You could feel Charlotte's conflicting emotions on her duty to her family, and finally doing and obtaining something for herself. I really enjoyed this book because it built up the relationship it wasn't love at first sight, it was attraction at first sight, and then they got to know each other and then they fall in love. Anyone who likes period pieces would enjoy this book I would give it about 3.5 stars to 4 stars.
