From the cover:

Grey wisps of fog clung to Maria Thorne as icy fear clutched at her heart. Her sixteen-year-old sister had disappeared into London's seething demi-monde of sin and white slavery. Scotland Yard's only solution was Maria's last, desperate hope ... and his name was Jocko Walton.

A self-confessed rogue who knew his way around the dark, secret underside of town, Jocko scorned the toffs and titled ladies. But the genteel Miss Thorne impressed him. She was gold to his brass ... sweet innocence in his street-roughened arms.

Unlikely partners, the lady and the thief would descend into the depths of a city both sinister and seductive. Drawn together by danger and misadventure, their fears and doubts melted beneath the gentle touch of lovers' hands. In the moonlight they were man and woman, joined by the ageless call of passion. But come the morning, would the world celebrate the triump of their hard-won love.

It takes place in the underbelly of London and the plot parallels historical events. The atypical heroine, Maria, is aided by her love interest, Jocko, a young, former thief whose unlawful acts are not entirely in the past and not forgotten by the local constable. This constable blackmails Jocko into helping Maria. Maria's little sister has been kidnapped and is installed in a "house of ill-repute" frequented and owned by aristocrats. Sound typical? It's not. Throw in some spicy, three-dimensional characters from various levels of society, Maria's and Jocko's unique personalities and appearances and the facts within this story regarding white slavery in centuries ago London, which the author tells you more about...and you've got a highly entertaining romantic suspense novel unique among all others.
