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. Her quick thinking, and her secret weapon, save her... for now. 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. He is unwholesomely obsessed by her scandalous connection to Benedict Stanbridge -- gossip about their hours alone in a ship's stateroom seems to have crossed the Atlantic faster than any sailing vessel could. Benedict refuses to let this resourceful, daring woman suffer for her romantic link to him, as tenuous as it may be. For a man and woman so skilled at disappearing, so at home in the exotic reaches of the globe, escape is always an option. But each intends to end the Bridegroom's reign of terror in London, and will join forces to do so. And as they prepare to confront an unbalanced criminal in the heart of the city they love, they must also face feelings that neither of them can run away from.

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.
