Review of The Lady Loves Danger

There’s plenty of mystery in The Lady Loves Danger.  Who kidnapped the child?  Who dognapped the Duchess’s dogs?  And what happened to the diamond collar?  Two people from very different walks of life work through these mysteries.  Lady Delilah Ashbrook, who has joined her Aunt in London after her father died, and Sebastian St. Allen, whose origins are a mystery. 

The series is called The Maidens of Mayhem.  While the Maidens, who believe women should have all the same advantages that men have, were a part of the story, it was a very small part.  Most of the story concentrated on St. Allen and Delilah both separately and together.  Also, there is an adorable child and a dog, giving the story cute appeal.

Historical mystery is combined with romance, but I found the combination to be awkward.  At a certain point, the mystery became predictable.  I did enjoy the story though and can recommend it to readers of historical mystery and romance. 

Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing a copy of this book.  My review is my honest opinion.

About The Lady Loves Danger by Anabelle Bryant

The society of daring women known as the Maidens of Mayhem dedicate their lives to protecting London’s most vulnerable citizens from injustice. Daring and discreet, their missions lead them to people and places they least expect, often putting their lives—and their hearts—in peril…

Lady Delilah Ashbrook is tirelessly searching the streets of London for a boy who vanished while under her care. Suspecting the child was abducted to be sold, Delilah hopes the Maidens can help find him before it’s too late. But Delilah’s mission brings her into the crosshairs of a mysterious man who is also looking for the boy. Sebastian St. Allen certainly cuts a dashing figure. But is he hoping to save the child—or harm him?

Sebastian has his own reasons for protecting the less fortunate. He has a gift for seamlessly navigating both London’s darkest corners and its most elite circles. But nothing prepared him for Delilah, whose delicate beauty belies an independence and sensuality he finds irresistible. Sebastian knows they can help each other, if only she’ll let her guard down. And, as they become entrenched in danger, they realize how strong their ties have grown—and how much they need one another.
