This story was quite different from the others in the series well, there was a fake marriage rather than a fake betrothal. But it was a nice solid story and there was actually parts towards the end that made me choke up a bit. I truly liked Rachel and Alleyne as well as the four whores and Sgt. William Strickland, who helped Rachel save Alleyne even though he was wounded himself from the battle of Waterloo. I hope we see him in the next book as Alleyne's valet.
