Named one of Amazon's Best Romances of December!

For a dashing duke and the proprietress of a secret, sensual club in the London Underground, passion could lead to love... if they dare

Thomas Powell, the new Duke of Northfield, knows he should be proper and principled, like his father. No more dueling, or carousing, or frequenting masked parties where Londoners indulge their wildest desires. But he's not ready to give up his freedom just yet. The club is an escape, a place where he can forget about society and the weight of his title... and see her, the woman he's wanted forever.

Lucia--known as Amina--manages the Orchid Club, a secret society where fantasies become reality. But for Lucia, it's strictly business, profitable enough to finance her dream: a home for the lost girls of the streets. Surrounded by lovers, she only observes, unwilling risk her future for any man. No member has ever intrigued her...until him, the masked stranger whose heated looks sear her skin. After months of suppressed longing, they dare to give in to temptation...

But the late duke's legacy comes with a shocking secret, and the scandal threatens to destroy everything Tom loves... his family, the Orchid Club, and even Lucia.

A historical romance in which a woman runs a sex club based on consent and equality? Okay, I'm sold! Leigh is a talented writer - both the main and secondary characters shine and the dialog is by turns witty and touching.

Eva Leigh's writing is wonderful, and if you love romance, she's an author I highly recommend. Her characters are smart and act in ways that actually make sense, with bold heroines and thoughtful heroes, the stories are feminist, fun, and totally sexy.

Review excerpt: "You know how sometimes you need a hook upon which to hang your suspension of disbelief to make a book work? Yeah, to borrow a phrase from Sarah, I need a suspension bridge of disbelief for this one. The concept is good and interesting, the characters are great, and the heroine and hero make emotional sense together, but she’s a former sex worker and he’s a duke. That’s just…nope."

DON'T READ THE REVIEWS - they give away some of the plot points that make this a good story between the newly minted duke and the hostess of the club. It's a fun read, and the two leads are well matched.

Eva Leigh's writing is wonderful, and if you love romance, she's an author I highly recommend. Her characters are smart and act in ways that actually make sense, with bold heroines and thoughtful heroes, the stories are feminist, fun, and totally sexy. I especially loved this story of a woman who runs a sex club (and a girls' school) and a Duke's son who is grappling with the legacy of his ultra-traditional father.
