The hero Matthew Joseph Milton learns a very hard lesson about life at the tender age of 20. His father loses the family paper to money a swindler. Left destitute you would think that it couldn't get worse, well your wrong. He lost his vision in one eye, because he was sticking up for a young boy.
Instead of crumbling, he decides to take matters into his own hands and becomes a man of ill-repute. Once a gentleman, now a thug and a leader of a group called the forty thieves. Now seeking justice for those that have been wronged on the poor side of town.
Our heroine, Lady Bernadette Marie Burton, forever scandalize cause of what happen in New Orleans. Moves to New York under a new alias until her friend Mr. Astor asks for her help to get his granddaughter introduced to London society. So, she ends up going back to London.
She makes the acquaintance of Mr. Milton and has a quick love affair with him. Matthew believes she could be the one. However, circumstance prevents anything to happen. When this happens Matthew decides to become a better man. Is it enough to get Bernadette back?
I LOVED this book. You can't helped, but love Matthew and all his misguided self. Truly a gem who seems to have the worse luck and you cheer for him to come out on top. As I said at the beginning, it is an emotional moving book and worth a look at.
