When I first started reading this, I was genuinely impressed.
And my impression was that I have picked up a well-written 'hunting Jack the Ripper' type novel sprinkled with some romance as a bonus.
When the balance of "Georgian era mystery/porny content" shifted from 70/30 that I imagined it would be, to about 20/80, I felt genuine disappointment.
Still, I think this is a very well-written book. The writing and world-building are extensive, detailed, and both real and imaginative. I just could do without a few of the bedroom scenes. Especially the 'I will heal you with my touch' kind.
As someone who actually found herself empathizing with the character of Caire because of some shared characteristics, the turn of 'he felt the pain because he wasn't loved and it will be all healed by love' turn felt a little disappointing.
I'm interested in continuing to read these series, at least for a while, but I feel like I'll have to do so fighting against the disgust towards covers and titles... I feel like these novels were done a big disservice with these choices.
