Loving Leonardo - The Quest
Setting the Stage:
Luca has gone missing. Nicolas is desperate to find him before Conte Bruno does. With the help of Will, a man who knows his way around the darker corners of Victoria's London, Nicolas delves into the seedier corners of the dockside. In this scene, Nicolas asks the serving girl if she's seen a highborn Italian traveling with three servants. Quite unexpectedly, he finds someone else.
I give you 7:
She nodded and tipped her head to the far corner of the room. “I got asked by the two young blokes sittin’ over there. I think they came in just minutes before you, but like I said, we’ve been hoppin’. The small one there did the askin’.”
“Thank you, Bonnie.”
She bobbed her head and left us. My eye sought the far corner and I blanched at what I found. There sat Ned Cooper, Mrs. Fletcher’s house boy, and beside him, dressed in men's attire with her mass of curls tucked under an overlarge cap, my wife.
Will nudged me. “Who do you suppose they are?”
I turned to him, my very words sounding stupefied to my ears. “Bloody hell. Will, that impetuous creature over there is my wife dressed as a man.”
“Oh Jesus, Mary, and Joseph. Pardon me for saying it sir, but whatever was she thinkin’? These men aren’t out for a bleedin’ tea party, they’re murderers!”
I seriously doubted much thought was involved. Our man sits within our grasp and my hands were now quite tied. I told Will, “I must get her out of here. We’ll have to abandon our efforts tonight.”
Here's the story
5 - Stars
I loved Rose Anderson's sequel to Loving Leonardo. Both books are great reads. How she followed each character to each ones conclusion was masterful. It was a fun and exciting read and I couldn't put it down.
