Brief Summary:

The Prince Regent is discovered clutching the lifeless body of a murdered marchioness. Further complicating matters, the necklace around the dead woman's neck was last worn by Sebastian St. Cyr's mother, who died more than 10 years earlier. Personal intrigue draws Sebastian into investigating the murder of the marchioness but investigation quickly turns to political intrigue and rebellion.

Why I picked it up:
After reading the first in the series, I couldn't wait to get more Sebastian. The ultimate wounded hero, his moral code and his relationship with actress Kat Boleyn make for compelling reading.

Who would like it:
The tension between Kat and Sebastian reminded me of Russ and Clare from Julia Spencer-Fleming's novels, so I'd recommend this series to anyone who also enjoyed JSFs writing.
