"Years ago, the Duke of Greyland gave his heart--and a princely sum of money--to a charming, destitute widow with unparalleled beauty. But after one passionate night, she slipped from his bed and vanished without a trace. And just when he's given up hope of ever seeing her again, Greyland finds her managing a gaming hell. He's desperate to have her... until he discovers everything about his long-lost lover was a lie. In truth, Cassandra Blake grew up on the streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a mark--to be fleeced and forgotten--but her feelings for the duke became all too real. Once he learns of her deception, however, the heat in his eyes turns to ice. When her business partner absconds with the gaming hell proceeds--leaving unsavory investors out for blood--Cassandra must beg the man she betrayed for help. Greyland wants compensation, too, and he'll assist her under one condition: she doesn't leave his sight until her debts are paid. But it's not long before the real Cassandra--the smart, streetwise criminal--is stealing his heart all over again" -- provided by publisher.

I'm a huge fan of Eva Leigh, and while this book was great in so many ways, it was also frustratingly cavalier in others. Swindler Cassandra Blake and Alex, the Duke of Greyland, had met years before, when Cassandra tricked him into handing over 500 pounds; when they meet again, the facade of her lie comes crashing down.

This book could have been so much richer if it had focused less on the money-stealing/revenge/how seedy the underbelly is/George Lacey/the hunt for Martin Hughes and instead shined a light on the intriguing desire for change in British society, with Alex realizing the rules that kept he and Cassandra apart are outdated, as well as the ways society could help those less fortunate. These glimpses would have made the abrupt reversal of "they can never be together," and the deceptions used to get there (even if we knew it would be coming) so much more satisfying. If we're starting a whole new series focusing on the same kind of pairings, I expect more as a reader.
