What can I say, I loved this series with the Merrick brothers. I was excited to read this book because the previous book, while introducing Andreas, only gave us a small glimpse at him.
For this novel, Andreas is pushing forward his dangerous game to ruin Lord Garrett and his sons. Part of his plot involves the Pace Carriage Company. He is waiting for Lord Garrett to make his move to take over the company and then plans to call in all the debts of the company Andreas had bought up. What he didn’t expect was Phoebe Pace arriving at his office door asking for his help.
Phoebe is all light and smiles while Andreas is dark and scowling, but the two compliment each other well. She understands what is driving him, he recognizes and promotes her intelligence and wit.
Of course this book, like the previous, has lots of action, attempted assassination, and more interaction with the jumbled mess of street rats the Merrick’s collected. In the end Andreas finds that there is much more to life than revenge and one remaining twist to the story that is not given away.
