RT Rating

Fiona Byrne, formerly "The Crimson Lady," a sought-after courtesan and notorious Robin Hood-style outlaw, lives a quiet life as a seamstress until Braeden de Cantor uncovers her identity. Desperate to save his sister from the hands of a ruthless debaucher, Braeden has no qualms about blackmailing Fiona into helping him.

To aid Braeden means returning to London's infamous stews (i.e., slums)—and to her role as the untouchable and highly desirable Crimson Lady. Fearful of going back, she could also finally break free from her past.

I was completely captivated by the powerful story and memorable characters McCall creates. I quickly became a part of this exciting story, feeling the atmosphere of the era as well as the emotions of the characters. Get set for an unforgettable read! SENSUAL (Jun., 384 pp., $5.99)
