Description

A lady of reserve and a fierce street fighter find common ground in the second Lost Lords of London novel by USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell.

Eight years ago, Lady Lila March retreated to the safe shadows of her family’s estate after a devastating tragedy. Weary of being a whisper of her former self, she is determined to brave the dangers of the outside world again. No man is better equipped to train her in the art of defense than the Savage Gentleman, East London’s undefeated street fighter.

Hugh Savage reigns as king - of the underworld. Physically invulnerable, emotionally battered, he has his reasons for bare-knuckle brawling. Though Hugh longs to break free of the ring and leave behind the brutal world of violence, he’s intrigued by the challenge Lady Lila poses. A mysterious lady of the peerage willfully descending into the dangerous rookeries? That bespeaks a woman with secrets of her own.

As their unconventional pact progresses, Hugh comes to admire the resolve in Lila’s heart. And beneath his hard surface, she sees a tenderness that touches her to the quick. They’ll soon discover how much they need each other - to face their pasts together, and to fight for a future they deserve.

Empowering

I so enjoyed the storyline. Wonderful to see a ‘broken’ woman strive and accomplish wholeness. Very well written! Thanks Christi

Lovely

A lovely story of two people locked in their own fears that intersect and could end their unusual relationship. The lady finds herself needing instruction in self defense and seeks out a notorious street fighter. But things aren’t always as they seem and love blossoms despite their very different backgrounds.

Too repetitive

While the story was mostly intriguing, the main characters internal thoughts were so repetitive I almost stopped listening several times. And I didn't enjoy how the hero wouldn't stand up for himself but his transformation in the opposite direction was almost instantaneous. Too little was explained about the evil character. The ending came rather quickly and left me unsatisfied. Because of this it really needed an epilogue.

I think I'm in love with Tim Campbell's voice....

This was my second Christi Caldwell novel narrated by Tim Campbell. I have to admit as much as I love a cultured British accent, I adore how Tim Campbell is able to distinguish between all of the distinct accents from East London. On to Book 3 in the series.

Awesome



Part of the Lost Lords of London series by Christi Caldwell, this is a fantastic read, it brings together two tortured souls, haunted by their pasts. Lila our heroine, youngest sister to widowed Sylvia and Henry the Earl of Waterson, has hidden from the world since Peterloo, is determined to enter the living again. She feels in order to do this she needs to learn to defend herself and her family so she seeks out Hugh, our hero, renowned bare knuckle fighter for the Rookeries. Both have learned not to trust and hide who they really are from the world, suddenly find that they have a lot more in common that they thought possible. Passion flares between them and despite interference from all sides, love finds a way. This book is darker and grittier than Christi’s previous book, but it makes the character more real and believable. Although characters from previous book pop up this can be read as a stand alone, having said that once you read this you will definitely want to read more. This is how regency should be written, not the staid two dimensional characters authors normally write about. I highly recommend this book

Every single thing that is good in a regency romance.

Gushing praise. This book hit every mark. It is tremendously fun well written. Vulnerable, fully developed characters, vibrant settings, powerful themes, the writing is stellar. Worth more than one perusal. So glad I bought it.

Good read, excellent narration..


This was a good story of another Lost Lord, a lord who had been trained to fight, from the time he was sold, other rookery kids and raised to be the best fighter there was in the poor part of London. And of Lila, who had her own nightmares, and how the two of them managed to heal each other.

There was sex in this book but no swearing.

As to the narration: Best of the best, Tim Campbell.

It was going to be a five star

This book had it all until the very end. It has the strong H, the strong determined h, romance, sexiness, and mystery. I kept telling myself I was going to listen to it again when it came to an end. The narrator brought the characters to life. The whole book was wonderful until the last few chapters. It was like the author spent hours decorating a three tier cake and forgot the top tier. I wanted to know what happened to Hugh when he was a child and what happened to his family. I wanted to know what his partners thought when the real villain was caught. I wanted to know about Hugh and his partners did when they met Valerie again. Instead we didn’t learn of any of those things. What happened? I felt robbed!
