Dark Desires (Zebra Debut)

On the streets of Whitechapel, a man steps from the fog-shrouded shadows, looking for company. The women are always happy to take his coin – just before they take his knife…Darcie Finch has come to the East London brothel as a last, desperate choice. Instead, the madam turns Darcie out into the harsh night with new hope – to seek employment from one who owes her a favour, Dr. Damien Cole – as well as a last warning: have a care. Steer clear of his work and his secrets. He is a man to fear…The Cole residence is a strange place, indeed. Servants disappear. Unsavoury characters call at odd hours of the night. And Darcie has seen the handsome doctor leave his laboratory splattered with blood. Now, Damien has offered her the chance of a lifetime, using her skills as an artist to work beside him. Long hours together soon ignite an unexpected – and irresistible – passion. But the closer Darcie gets to Damien and his secrets, the more she wonders if he is a dedicated, charming healer…or a cold-blooded killer…

Subsequently, these same glowing reviews haunted me as I read and they made me question why my reading experience was so different from others. Written in the tradition of a Jack the Ripper tale, the beginning of Dark Desires…

  3. Different Intense Read! Darcie was no stranger to the better things of life; a loving family, fine living in clothes and food, but all that changed in a twinkling of an eye and Darcie was thrust into a world of darkness; one of fear, horror and need. She had but one hope, to reach her sister who had taken up a less than noble position as a Madame who was now known as Mrs. Feather. Her tender loving sister had learned to survive by submitting to the lowest of low by using herself and others in giving perverse pleasure…
