Review by MickyFine
Artemis Greaves has always been the woman in the background. As companion to her cousin, Penelope, nothing more is required of her. But a few chance encounters with Maximus Batten, Duke of Wakefield, and suddenly Artemis isn't as much in the background as she's accustomed. But getting involved with the Duke could drop her into the worst position in society.Another solid entry in the Maiden Lane series. I appreciated the change that while Artemis is still part of the upper class, she only just remains there as a companion. Her verbal sparring with Maximus was enjoyable and I was pleased, as always, with the resolution of the plot. Be warned however, that the epilogue of this one offers up a much more cliffhanger-ish tease for the next book in the series than is typical.
