He called himself Peregrine, the wanderer, and he came to London for revenge...

Like the falcon he named himself for, Peregrine is wild and free, an exotic prince who fascinates 1839 London with his wealth, mystery, and dangerous allure. He emerged from his mysterious Asiatic past to exact retribution for an appalling crime. Nothing and no one can stop him--except perhaps Lady Sara St. James, whose fragile beauty conceals a gentle heart, genuine goodness, and a soul of steel.

Unable to resist his seductive charm, Lady Sara turns away from her ordered life to embrace a man she loves, but cannot fully trust. In Sara, Peregrine sees a chance for a life beyond revenge. But can he keep her without revealing his devastating secrets? Or protect her from the enemy he has vowed to destroy?

Sara & Mikhaill are strong characters in an enthralling historical romance. while he is bent on revenge for past atrocities, her love redeems him. Great storytelling set in 1800's England. The author is a great storyteller.

This book started off well until about the middle then it lost its appeal and then the ending just seemed to abrupt. It seems this is a different writing style for MJP, I like the old way better... I am disappointed but will still remain a fan!

Actually, ALL of MJP's books are on my keeper shelf, but this is my favorite. I'll take Peregrine as a hero any day! He's a tortured hero who's lost his way, and Sara is the perfect foil for him¿principled, kind, and warm.

I have this book in paperback and was thrilled to be able to have it as an ebook. It is a wonderful regency historical romance novel, that has a hero to cheer for, a heroine to admire and a villain to despise. You will care for the characters, and it is a beautiful story of healing love and forgiveness. The love scenes are sensual and just the right amount, not too much. You will not be disappointed!

Excellent historical romance with characters that you love and cheer for as well as evil ones you pray will get their due justice. Loved it!

I've now read all three books in this trilogy and have been treated to a variety of amazing characters with a dash of the exotic mysteries of the Orient. These mysteries are introduced obliquely in this first volume set in England, preparing one for total immersion in Central Asia in #2 and India in #3. If you are a map person, the entire series will have you running to your atlas to see where all these places are. The romance is great, as is the adventure, with the added bonus of being introduced to wonderful new locations.
