It s the Seasons 1727 in London where all the elites gather in the ballrooms The ladies put on their best attires with the aim of catching the eyes of a prospective husband Gossips are ripe at these events Percival Percy is a Maruess He used to have an unsavoury reputation up until two years ago when he had a heartbreak He is the most eligible bachelor in town and is constantly pursued by the ladies He comes up with the plan of going back to his old ways to get some reprieve from his pursuers Eden is very popular with the gentlemen She has turned down several suitors in the past She is not after money or a title She wants the real thing To find someone to love and who would love her in return Percy approaches Eden at the party thinking that she is the perfect target for what he has in mind What he doesn t expect is for her to politely give him as good as she gets She is attracted to him but feigns indifference Percy finds himself thinking about her than he should and pays her a visit under the pretense of owing her an apology Catherine Eden s mother does her best to keep them apart She has someone else lined up for Eden but with her own agenda Eden has no interest in Catherine s proposal but this woman is selfish and ruthless She refuses to listen to Eden Percy doesn t give up easily either As the story unfolds it becomes clear that Ravenhood the intended has secrets and a liason with Eden could save his reputation or even his life At the same time a young girl goes missing and Percy is doing his best to find her This is a complex plot with many twists along the way There is prostitution Corruption and jealousy Blackmail and child slavery When everything comes to light it s uite shocking The culprits are the least likely suspects Percy has a side which he hides well Not many knows about the good work that he does Can Eden accept him as he is despite his shady past This story builds up slowly until it comes to a point when it becomes impossible to put the book down It s beautifully written and the characters are very well developed It shows how damaging gossips can be and that people can change by learning from their mistakes I was kindly issued with an advanced ecopy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
