Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Two different classes, one common desire... 

Lady Bernadette Marie Burton may be the richest widow in England, but like her dreams of finding true passion, her reputation is deteriorating. Cruel gossip, loneliness and hoards of opportunistic suitors have her believing Society couldn't be more vile... or dangerous. So when an attacker threatens her life, she finds safety in the most unseemly of places: the arms of a mysterious, Irish-American gang leader. 

His fortune stolen, young Matthew Milton is done playing the respectable gentleman. In the slums of New York, only ruffians thrive. But from the moment he arrives in London and encounters the voluptuous Lady Bernadette, he can't help but wonder about the finer pleasures he's missing. Or just how much he's willing to risk — not only to bed her, but to prove his worth....

Review:

"Marvelle (Forever and a Day) seamlessly weaves two distinct threads into a sizzling yet tender romance set in New York's gritty Five Points and fashionable London in the 1820s. Bernadette Marie, a merry widow, is determined to ignore society and do whatever she wants. If she wants to sleep with a disreputable American, then nothing can stop her. Matthew Milton might have grown up well-off, but after his family's money was stolen and squandered by a longtime friend, he learned a new way of living to survive in the slums. Bernadette can accept him being a vigilante, but not his penchant for theft. Marvelle paints a realistic view of New York and the motivations that drive the poor to commit desperate acts without losing their humanity. Matthew's world is violent, both on the streets and in the bedroom, but nothing is too gory or graphic. Matthew is a rare man despite his circumstances and watching him claw his way out of poverty when Bernadette gives him a chance is satisfying and worthy of a cheer.

About the Author

Delilah Marvelle spent her youth studying various languages, reading voraciously and playing the pianoforte. She confesses that here ends the extent of her gentle breeding. She was a naughty child who was forever torturing her parents with countless adventures that they did not deem respectable. Confined to her room on many occasions due to these misadventures, she discovered the quill and its amazing power. Soon, to the dismay of her parents, she rather enjoyed being confined to her room and finished writing her first historical romance (which was a heart-stopping 800 pages long...) at the age of fourteen. She is a two time Golden Heart finalist, a Reviewer's Best First Historical Romance nominee, and a double Bookseller's Best Award finalist. You can visit her at her website at www.DelilahMarvelle.com or her blog, which explores the naughtier side of history, at www.DelilahMarvelle.blogspot.com.
