Complex characters and descriptive language enhance this sexy and satisfying read. Each character struggles to overcome a troubled past to find love, and the love scenes are by turns tender and steamy. A mystery subplot is introduced but is predictable. With the murderous Jack the Ripper on the loose, Sebastian soon finds that his rigid schedule is impossible to maintain when protecting [Helen’s] is his obsession.

Critical Acclaim

“Monica Burns has a way with bringing damaged souls together, in spite of themselves, and others, with dishonorable plans, that would strive to separate them! She also proves, AGAIN, she DEFINITELY knows her way around STEAMY love scenes! (A fact that I always appreciate!)”

— Tracey, GoodReads Reviewer


“…a fresh spin on a damsel in distress and… a hero who not only does the rescuing, but needs to be rescued from some demons of his own.”

— Romance Reader at Heart


“…Sebastian was just the man for me.”
