Today I bring you a new book from Anabelle Bryant, The Den Of Iniquity. Not only do I have a review for you but also an excerpt from the book.
Welcome to the most notorious address in London…
Beneath the airs and graces of the Ton lies The Underworld – London’s most scandalous gambling hall.
The only thing darker and more debauched than the hall itself? Rhe proprieter, Max Sinclair. As mysterious as the corners of the city he stalks.
Max has vowed to take revenge against the men who murdered his mother.The Underworls attracts London’s darkest characters – the perfect partners in crime.
But when Lady Beaumont enters The Underworld, Max’s life becomes more dangerous than he ever thought possible.
I wasn’t sure whar to make of this when I first started reading. I have never read a book set in this era however it worked perfectly with the storyline.
Vivienne was a likeable character, I found her endearing and easy to sympathise with. I could understand her feelings for Max and felt her hurr and anger later.
Max while appearing complex is actually a relatively simple person, he mosses his mother and craves the love he misses. His need for revenge is understandable and adds depth to his character.
All in all this was an extremely enjoyable book to read and I look forward to the continuing series.
With gentle reverence, she laid the card across her skirt and read the neatly printed square letters. Maxwell Sinclair. The name fit. He excuded strength and control, two qualities she lacked or at the least struggled to improve. She peered at the line of type beneath his name. Proprietor. And then the bottom row. Underworld Gaming Hell. Suspicion confirmed. She knew with no doubt the man was dangerous, but proprietor of gaming hell…well, that was as sinful as one could imagine. Yet somehow that fit too. When he’s settled his eyes upon her, his piercing gaze sent delightful prickles up her spine and then much lower for some odd reason. She welcomed the thrill, numb since her mother’s death fillwd her with grief and dear for her future. Oh yes, the man was trouble inside and out. If a glance could send a delicious shiver through her, what might a kiss envoke? She shook her head and dismissed the question. Proper ladies didn’t think of kisses.
