This sparkling novella introduces award-winning author Shana Galen's brand new series, Covent Garden Cubs. Galen mixes London's glittering ballrooms with the gritty underworld in her exciting new Regency romance series.

Whispers and secrets are no match for love...

Henry Flynn, the new Lord Chesham, still blames himself for the disappearance of his younger brother when they were children. That incident destroyed his family, and now he's on a path of self-destruction that no one can interrupt...

Lady Emma Talbot can't stand watching the man she secretly loves destroy himself little by little. She's determined to show him that no one holds him culpable, before it's too late. But Emma doesn't know what really happened to Flynn on that fateful day long ago, so what chance does she have of saving him from himself?
Viscount of Vice is a great introduction to a new series.  It has set the stage for some fun, adventure, and a lot of romance.  Henry Flynn is a bit of a scoundrel and the opening scene really sets the stage for his personality.  It was perfect!  He didn't seem to have a care in the world for his reputation - let them talk.  We later find the reason for this and it's a very important part of the story.

Lady Emma couldn't be more different if she tried.  But she does have a bit of spark to her.  She's not your typical miss or she would have never caught Flynn's eye to begin with long ago.  However, neither of them intended for her to get caught up in his problems.

This problem is quite exciting and very emotional for Flynn and his family.  It's hard to say much without giving away some of the best parts of the story.  There was tons of excitement for a novella.  The downside is, I really think this would have been better with a little more to it.  I wish I could have seen more about Flynn's past and maybe some insight into how his brother lived.  It would have rounded it all out better for me.
