Eva Leigh launches a seductive new series that sizzles with the dark secrets of London’s underworld...

Years ago, the Duke of Greyland gave his heart—and a princely sum of money—to a charming, destitute widow with unparalleled beauty. After one passionate night, she slipped from his bed and vanished without a trace. And just when he’s given up hope of ever seeing her again, Greyland finds her managing a gaming hell. He’s desperate to have her… until he discovers everything about his long-lost lover was a lie.

In truth, Cassandra Blake grew up on the streets, picking pockets to survive. Greyland was a mark—to be fleeced and forgotten—but her feelings for the duke became all too real. Once he learns of her deception, however, the heat in his eyes turns to ice. When her business partner absconds with the gaming hell proceeds—leaving unsavory investors out for blood—Cassandra must beg the man she betrayed for help.

Greyland wants compensation, too, and he’ll assist her under one condition: she doesn’t leave his sight until her debts are paid. But it’s not long before the real Cassandra—the smart, streetwise criminal—is stealing his heart all over again.

Over the past few years, I've become a big fan of Eva Leigh's. Her books are always engaging and heartfelt. I never have to worry about not liking one of her stories, and the same is said for this title. I'm a little behind on reading this book but figured better late than never!

The blurb for From Duke Till Dawn was an interesting one that immediately had me hooked. I am usually drawn to the bad boy type of man, but Cassandra and her plights throughout the book gave me a little girl crush. The way she grew up on the streets and what she had to do to make it one day at a time softened my heart towards her. Yes, she did some things that she shouldn't have had to do, but if she had another choice she wouldn't do them. And when a situation was unceremoniously dropped into her lap, she took immediate responsibility to right a wrong that affected a lot of people. She showed real mettle and I loved her character.

I don't say this often, but I wasn't head over heels in love with Greyland. Don't get me wrong. I truly enjoyed his character. I loved reading through his change in feelings when it came to Cassandra. I can't put my finger on it though, but something was just slightly off. It didn't deter me from reading through the book in less than twenty-four hours, though.

I just downloaded the next in the series, Counting on a Countess, and can't wait to dive in here in a few minutes. Eva Leigh never disappoints!
