Fiction | Historical
Set in early nineteenth-century England, this vivid and
romantic historical novel goes from the most elegant
ballrooms of London to the cityâ€™s most tawdry slums, as a
spirited young woman helps unravel a plot by Napoleon to
bleed England of all its gold. Through good fortune,
Charlotte Raven escaped the poverty of the London slums and
is now an educated, wealthy Society lady. But she lives
between two worlds, unable to completely turn her back on
her old lifeâ€”specifically Luke, her childhood protector and
now a ruthless London crime lord.
When Lord Edward Durnham is asked to investigate the
alarming movement of gold out of England, his search leads
him to London, and his recent acquaintance with Charlotte
affords him access to a dark world he barely knew existed.
As they delve deeper into the underbelly of London, danger
lurks at every turn, and Charlotte must navigate between her
two worlds to save England. And soon she faces a defining
choice: to continue in the familiar limbo sheâ€™s lived in for
years, or to take a painful and risky leap toward a
happiness she never thought possible.
