When shy and secluded author Sara Fielding ventures from her country cottage to research a novel, she inadvertently witnesses a crime in progress--and manages to save the life of the most dangerous man in London. Derek Craven is a powerful and near-legendary gambling club owner who was born a bastard and raised in the streets. His reputation is unsavory, his scruples nonexistent. But Sara senses that beneath Derek's cynical exterior, he is capable of a love more passionate than her deepest fantasies. Aware that he is the last man that an innocent young woman should ever want, Derek is determined to protect Sara from himself, no matter what it takes. But in a world where secrets lurk behind every shadow, he is the only man who can keep her safe. And as Derek and Sara surrender to an attraction too powerful to deny, a peril surfaces from his dark past to threaten their happiness . . . and perhaps even their lives. Together they will discover if love is enough to make dreams come true.… (mais)

A vast improvement over the last two romances I've read. Kleypas has a style that's funny and sexy with characters that I really liked, especially the heroine Sara. I didn't love that the villainess's villainy was linked so earnestly to her voracious and explorative sexual appetite (at one point she goes into cliched Depraved Bisexual tropes) but I would definitely read more in this series.

Very enjoyable. Can be hard sometimes to not be annoyed by Derek's self-loathing.

Undecided about this one.
Hero with a dark past, heroine who is from a small town, but is a writer but she writes about whores, gambling etc and she gains knowledge of this by mixing in these circles.
She does show some stupidity at times.
There is pushing away from the Hero which I hate.
There is an antagonistic relationship between the Hero and heroine, arguing but basically the Hero pushes her away as he is attracted to her but feels he is not worthy, he'd ruin her.
There is huge other woman drama.
The Hero is referred to as making a practice of being involved with other men's wives.
The Hero recalls some intimacy with other women, esp his latest ex but no great detail.
During separation the Hero is one of the women from the club but uses the horeines name and the the is an incident with the ex as he's very drunk and again he calls her the heroines name.
HEA.
Epilogue. ( )

Read my full review here. 4.5 but I'm feeling generous. The love between Sara and Derek is so sweet. While I did have some reservations about their first night together, I have to remember this was written in the early '90s. There were a few no's Derek brushed off simply because Sara was ignorant -- I don't care. If someone says no because they don't understand, explain it to them; don't force or scare them. Aside from that leaving a slightly bitter taste in my mouth, this was a very enjoyable story. I loved the contrast of Derek's being a bastard with everyone except Sara, Lily, and Alex. He's a broody sweetheart. And I loved Sara from the first moment we meet her, taking notes in the rookery. She's a bit shy, but she also knows when to speak her mind -- I find that very admirable.

A true historical romance classic, with one of the all-time great love interests - Derek Craven. An intense rags-to-riches hero who falls for the shy writer Sara when she comes to research a novel about gambling hells. She saves his life in the opening scene, and the relationship evolves from there. A great book from a great author. ( )
