"You do strange things to me, Dell Turner. Tell me I am not alone in what I feel."His voice was low and rough. His eyes burned. "You are not alone," he said.
Portia Chadwick knows she'll never have a life of adventure. But when a dangerous moneylender kidnaps her sister, Portia seeks help from a man known only as Nightshade. Soon she finds herself charging headfirst into his world of intrigue and danger―and unexpected passion.
Dell Turner grew up in London's back alleys and gin lanes. Vowing to escape his low beginnings, he hires himself out to society's elite. When he accepts a job from a beautiful young lady, he doesn't anticipate her relentless determination to join his mad occupation...or her unnerving ability to inspire emotions he thought long buried. She's as dangerous to him as his world is to her, and yet Dell can't bring himself to turn Portia away... even if it means risking her life.
Lord of lies is the story of the final sister, Portia. Portia was never interested in society or the men her sister wanted her to marry. She played along for awhile until she meets Dell Turner. Portia is fascinated by the life of deception, intrigue, and salvation Dell lives and wants to join him. He is skeptical not only because she is a proper lady of the ton, but because he is attracted to her.
I adored their adventures! Lord of lies really ties all the books together. This event is happening at the same time as the events of the previous two books and involves some of the same characters. I enjoyed seeing a different side of Hale and am dying to know more about Freddie! Portia is such a delight and I am glad she found a way to be happy. I loved her moments with Angelique as well!
My biggest struggle was Dell’s stubbornness. He pushed Portia away frequently with only bad excuses and reasons. I wanted to throat punch him!
Lord of Lies gives you the historical feel but with more progressive characters that transcend the time!
