really liked it

What's not to like when the novel features a tall, dark, mysterious, wealthy, and powerful man going up against a woman who knows her own mind, who reads the classical languages, who has been on her own and is able to care for herself, and who has now come through some harrowing experiences, more than most women of her time could even conceive much less endure. Yet there are aspects of this novel that are very complicated, such as Rohan's involvement in the Inferno Club and his undercover work for the British government against a group of people who have been planning and carrying out plans for world domination for generations. Rohan is a master assassin who is also plagued by the family curse, one that has effectively kept him from emotional involvement most of his adult life. Now he encounters a woman who continually amazes him at her stalwart approach to living with her quick wit and able strategic thinking. It is not a simplistic novel and will take some time to read as it is heavy on the historical comings and goings of this mysterious groups of plotters against whom Rohan and the British agents continually work. Yet underneath all the political machinations runs this love story, one that is in and of itself a dangerous thing for Rohan and which demands some rather difficult choices on the part of his lady love. A worthy historical romance and one that historical fans will find quite compelling.
