As a child, Lydia Pallas became all too familiar with uncertainty when it came to the future. Now she’s finally carved out a perfect life for herself—a life of stability and order with no changes, surprises, or chaos of any kind. She adores her apartment overlooking the bustling Boston Harbor, and her skill with languages has landed her a secure position as a translator for the US Navy. But it is her talent for translation that brings her into contact with Alexander Banebridge, or “Bane,” a man who equally attracts and aggravates her. 

When Bane hires Lydia to translate a seemingly innocuous collection of European documents, she hesitantly agrees, only to discover she is in over her head. Just as Bane’s charm begins to win her over, Lydia learns he is driven by a secret campaign against some of the most dangerous criminals on the East Coast. Bane forbids any involvement on Lydia’s part, but when the criminals gain the upper hand, he has no choice but to depend on her.

    " This book can definitely go on my 'greatest books of all time' list. There are so many reasons why I love this book, but I'll try to name just a few. One reason is that the main character, Lydia, is tough. She's not someone that gives up. With all of the problems that she has to face, she's still strong. And then we get to Bane... Oh Bane. I was completely immersed in the love story between (view spoiler)[ Lydia and Bane (view spoiler)[ while reading this book. Bane has so many of the ideal qualities in a male fictional character, he's just... wonderful. And the best part about both of them is they aren't perfect! They have flaws. They have had not-perfect lives before the time of this book. Plus the book is enthralling. I felt no desire to do anything but keep reading this book, wanting to see what might happen next. I wholeheartedly give this book five stars, and I recommend this book to literally everyone. (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)] "

    " This is an author whom I can wholeheartedly recommend. She does her research, on both the historical period and her characters. The writing is well done; the characters are human, lifelike and entertaining. This book does follow the author's previous titles. Read them in order if possible. You will enjoy both the suspense and the romance. "

    " It was good. It seemed like she went from being really nervous around Bane to totally at ease to being in love really quickly. "

    " I guess this book wasn't exactly my style. I finished it but found it to be slow moving a dull. "

    " An insightful recount of fight against Opium and its insidious invasion within American society. I also learned a great deal about what it is like to go through withdrawal for those who are addicted to opium. "
