Lydia's fluency in various languages has secured her a permanent job with the Navy Yard, but unforeseen circumstances with her apartment lead to her needing to come up with some extra money fast. Enter, Bane, the handsome opium crusader who needs her help translating documents for his cause.
I found myself pulled into the banter between Bane and Lydia and even more engrossed in the unpredictable storyline. So many times when reading a book you can tell exactly where the story is going, but I found myself taken along for a ride from Lydia's first encounter with Bane through their attack on the opium trade.
I highly recommend this read to anyone who enjoys an engaging story with a pinch of intrigue and characters with depth and likability.
