Description

Betrayed by those she trusted, penniless and alone, Darcie Finch is forced to accept a position that no one else dares, as assistant to dangerously attractive Dr. Damien Cole. Ignoring the whispered warnings and rumours that he's a man to fear, she takes her position at his eerie estate, where she quickly discovers that nothing is at it seems, least of all her handsome and brooding employer. As Darcie struggles with her fierce attraction to Damien, she must also deal with the blood, the disappearances ... and the murders.

With her options dwindling and time running out, Darcie must rely on her instincts as she confronts the man she falling in love with. Is he an innocent and misunderstood man ... or a remorseless killer who prowls the East End streets?

Bonus content: Never-before-seen Epilogue!

    The writing is overly repetitive. It's a quick read yet the main character, Darcie, is constantly talking in circles as if the reader forgot what happened in the previous pages. There is too much emphasis on descriptions which becomes boring after a while. Some of the character interactions are unbelievably silly, trying to imagine real people acting in such a way distracted from the story itself. Honestly I was entertained enough to finish the book however I am glad I did not pay for it.
  • Just wow.

    This was amazing. A thrilling tale than enamors from the get-go and draws you in until the very last page. Loved it. Wouldn’t change a thing. I love Jack the Ripper and it’s fiction—now this is one of my favorites. In my opinion, a must read for Historical Fiction/Crime Fiction fans. The romance made it even better, and you definitely don’t see the ending coming.

    Normally a book written about the 1800’s isn’t a book I would read. I looked at the reviews, one stated how well it was written like books prior to the present. I couldn’t put this down. Nothing was more important than the next word I was about to read. I’ve read 100’s of books and first review I have actually written. Thank you for a wonderful story.

    Different from the usual novel written about this era,. I enjoyed reading it and how the characters were evolving through out the book. ‘’’’’’’’Well written and interesting from the standpoint of how sanitation was tied to the germ theory of infection.and disease.

    At first I was hesitant but I really enjoyed it. The author has a great way of making you feel like you’re there. If you’re hesitant like me just read a couple chapters then you’ll want to know how it ends.

    I couldn’t put it down! The plot thickens with every page, I didn’t even want to go to sleep. A little bit of horror, a little bit of romance, and a whole lot of suspense. I didn’t know who to trust in this book! Great read and for FREE!
