    1. A cheese-a-licious romance with a side helping of ham, this was exactly the kind of shallow I was looking for to ease my tired and achy brain and, while I can't bring myself to go any higher with my stars, it does get a bonus point for making me snigger so much.Are you sitting comfortably? Then we'll begin.(view spoiler)[Amy is a foundling working as a (priiiivate) dancer (a dancer for money) in the Pleasure Palace, a gentleman's club run by a mean former Queen of Madagascar (!) Madame Rafaram [...]

    2. Amy Peel, remembering little of her childhood, only knows that she grew up as a orphan. Amy is a mysterious dancer at one of london's underworld's clubs, Amy only dancing out of necessity and very few people know of her true identity. Forced into a life to survive, Amy hopes that she may find a way to escape such a life but has no idea how it could be done. Edmund Hawkins is looking for some excitement, and when he hears of a notorious club that is being rumored to being the "most wicked" in all [...]

    3. The dark brewding Hawkins brothers are a delight to read about, who don't like a reformed pirate(s). Edmund was to be the saviour to Amy but could never quite be the hero it seemed he was always a little late to her rescue or finding himself in trouble while attempting to protect her. I wasn't expecting the story leading up to the HEA ending, it was quite the dark twist of fate. I really enjoyed reading Edmund Hawkins' story and look forward to reading Quincy and William's story.

    4. Very good book. Had me wondering till the end. Didn't see it. Loved how Amy got her backbone at the end when she tells her father off.Would of like to see how her mother really reacted to all what Amy had gone through.

    5. An ok story, but the writing was less than desirable. The author must have slept with a thesaurus that had only denotations, not connotations. Words used in a jarring fashion, some stilted dialogue, and jerky transitions. I'd read another, but there are other authors I'd read first.

    6. This was just the type of pick up, put down book I needed. I liked the initial storyline, but it probably won't win any awards. However, if you take it for what it is I'm sure you'll enjoy it, like I did.

    7. Enjoyable melodrama of reformed pirates and London's underworld as well as Englands nauhty aristocracy.

    8. Pleasant love story about a reformed pirate and an orphaned dancer. Nothing special about story or characters but entertaining enough.
