In 1880 London, everyone wonders about the MIDNIGHT ANGEL, an apparent wealthy aristocrat, who helps fallen women start anew at her shelter Stone House. Unbeknownst to everyone who speculates about this benefactor is that though he dresses like a man, MIDNIGHT ANGEL is Lady Lydia Beaumont, wife of an earl dying from syphilis.

Actress Louise Canfield visits Beau and Lydia to obtain help as someone abducted her teenage daughter from the theater. Louise informs a stunned Beau that Sophia is his child from a long ago tryst. Beau's friends Todd and Clara Leach obtain the services of Lord “Clue”, Hugh Montgomery known for solving cases. However, he and Lydia know each other from when they fell in love five years ago when she was known as Addie Parker. He thought she was dead while she felt he deserted her. As they work together, their love remains strong, but before either can think of the future a young girl needs rescuing.

Readers will enjoy this Victorian romance starring two intrepid females trying to break the mode that leaves women in lesser roles. From the start, the story line grips the audience with Louise dressed as a man trying to rescue an aging whore who just lost her teen child to a nasty John. Though the personal relationship between Louise and Hugh is heated, resolution is simplified with Beaus' deteriorating health. Still fans will relish this powerful historical romance.
