Scoundrels, thieves and rebels inhabit the rookeries--where the women are fierce and the men are dangerous.
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. With the help of his fellow gang members, he'll execute the greatest heist London has ever seen, decimating Wilkes.
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 safe, and that’s all matters to Sally, until she meets Matthew Harper. His plan gives her a real chance at escaping Wilkes's control...if she lives long enough to enjoy her freedom.
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.
