Welcome to the world of THE LYON’S DEN: The Black Widow of Whitehall Connected World, where the underground of Regency London thrives… and loves.
He’s determined to find out the truth…
Alexander Douglas, the fifth Earl of Wrotham, returns home from the war to discover his estate in financial ruin, thanks to his late father’s greedy mistress. Convinced that Mrs. Dorothy Marble duped his father out of huge sums of money and forced him to sign over one of the family’s townhouses, Alex makes it his mission to expose her as the criminal she is. With a widowed mother and younger siblings to support, Alex enters the notorious Lyon’s Den to use his considerable skill at cards to win enough to repay the creditors. When he encounters a mysterious young man who manages to beat everyone he plays, Alex uncovers the youthful cardsharp’s clever ruse.
She’s determined to hide the truth…
Lady Priscilla Gifford despairs she will never find a husband. Her well-meaning but overbearing mother insists on purchasing horrible gowns that make Priscilla and her sisters look like puffed-up peacocks. Worse still, Priscilla and her sisters must perform in endless musicales, even though they have no musical talent. Between the dismal dresses and pitiful performances, Priscilla is finding it a challenge to control her stutter, something she’s had since childhood. Tired of being the focus of the ton’s ridicule and determined to break free, Priscilla devises a plan to boost her financial independence and bolster her self-confidence, a daring plan that requires the discrete assistance of Mrs. Dove-Lyon, the matron of the infamous Lyon’s Den. When she encounters Alex at the Den, Priscilla realizes the earl is as clever as he is handsome.
But as feelings begin to bloom between Priscilla and Alex, a sinister plot threatens to destroy any future they might have.
