One does not expect to be kidnapped on a London street in broad daylight. But Amity Doncaster barely escapes with her life after she is trapped in a carriage with a blade-wielding man in a black silk mask who whispers the most vile taunts and threats into her ear. But the monster known in the press as the Bridegroom, who has left a trail of female victims in his wake, has survived the wounds she inflicts and will soon be on his feet again. And he is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge.

Loved it! I couldn't put it down.

Light, fluffy, quick - I rather wish the weaponised fan was actually used in the story, but it was a delightful read. Good vacation reading.

Quick, cute, fairly predictable. But isn't that part of what we love aout her books? Overall I did enjoy it!

A classic JAK historical. I always know what I'm getting when I pick up one of these. I still don't think her newer books are as good as some of her older titles, but this was better than the past few she's had.

A feisty, adventurous heroine. A brooding scientist hero. A mystery. A serial killer. A russian spy. A small subplot involving Amity's widowed sister finding love again in the arms of a dashing inspector from Scotland Yard (adorable).

A cute read.

I just love Amanda Quick's novels. I know exactly what I'm getting and I'm never disappointed. There is the extremely clever heroine who is just a touch past the proper marriageable age. There is the dashing hero who will never marry. There is an issue that must be solved which requires the two work together. She drives him crazy with the risks she takes. He drives her crazy because he wants her to play it safe. They fall in love.
