A MAN OUT FOR REVENGE…
As the second in command of the notorious Chapman Street Thieves, stoic Matthew Harper is the logical voice of reason in a gang too often prone to bloodshed. Rarely is he ruled by emotion. But when his sister is brutalized by the leader of an opposing gang, he vows to get her justice. Matthew forms a plan to end Wilkes's sadistic rule by capitalizing on the man's weakness: his sick obsession with his mistress.
A DESPERATE WOMAN…
To survive on the squalid streets of Jacob’s Island, Sally Fletcher has been many things: thief, harlot, friend, traitor. Becoming Wilkes’s mistress is another sin in a long list of regrets—but it keeps her friends at the brothel safe, and that’s all matters to Sally. Then Matthew Harper kidnaps her, creating chaos and in-fighting within Wilkes’s gang.
AND AN ALLIANCE THAT MAY TURN DEADLY.
What begins as a quest for vengeance becomes much more. Sally’s quiet strength and kindness stir a passion within Matthew he’s never known, and his unwavering acceptance makes her long for a future she doesn’t think she deserves. As a dangerous gang war engulfs the East End, they must decide where their loyalties lie, and embrace rebellion.
The Lady Rebels is a dark, gritty full-length romantic suspense set in 1830's working class London. While it is book five in the Rookery Rogues series, it can be read as a stand-alone historical romance.
