Three nights of danger . . . When her brother was arrested for murder, the ton shut its doors to Marietta Winters. No one would help her save him from the gallows—no one but Gabriel Noble. In exchange for taking the case, Gabriel requests three favors from the desperate young beauty, and Marietta has no other choice but to make a deal with the sinfully handsome devil. Three nights of pleasure . . . Searching for clues in the rough underbelly of London, Marietta must masquerade as a shamelessly wanton wench—much to Gabriel's delight. But Marietta swears to herself that her passionate moans are just for show. She could never fall in love with such a maddening, arrogant, seductive stranger . . . could she? Three nights of sin . . . Night after night, she satisfies his wicked cravings. But soon Gabriel wants more from Marietta than just three nights of sin—and even a sordid secret in his past won't prevent him from trying to possess her forever.

This Mallory didn't dazzle me quite as much as SEVEN SECRETS OF SEDUCTION or ONE NIGHT IS NEVER ENOUGH, though the bones of the story shared great things in common with them. Marietta, the heroine, has wonderful strength, and grows in self-confidence to where she is able to take control of her own ...
Not the casual romance we have all read. I found Gabriel to be an interesting character as he falls in love with Marietta and is forced to deal with his past. Marietta is a strong lead and the characters are somewhat believable. All in all, this was an enjoyable quick read.
