"Viscount of Vice" [Covent Garden Cubs Series, Book 0.5] by Shana Galen (aka Shane Bolks)
Author's Book Description : 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?
My Book Review : 3.5 out of 5 stars. Two years after their first meeting, Flynn (Henry) finds himself being pulled by some unknown force to Emma again. Even after being warned off by Emma's older brother, Flynn knows he should avoid her at all costs but it's hard to do. Yet when circumstances throw Emma into grave danger Flynn will risk it all to get her back...
This short novella is a spicy and sweet thriller that takes you on an unexpected adventure while it brings together two people who are living in vastly different situations. What enamored me to this novel was Flynn and Emma's connection as it's instantaneous and combustible. In addition, I liked how the plot built up their interactions together.
The thing that was hard to enjoy was the forced hurriedness that some of the scenes displayed. As those scenes didn't feel as smoothly transitioned as they could be, nevertheless, I loved any of the scenes where Flynn and Emma were together.
I recommend this novel for those who are fans of Ms. Galen and/or if you're looking for a quick historical romance.

"You should not have turned eighteen," he said.
"I had little choice, my lord." Her voice was breathless and husky. Was he going to kiss her?
"Would you allow me to kiss you?"
She nodded. "Yes."
"Anywere," she breathed. ~ within Chapter 2
"Your hands are like ice," he said, taking the fabric and setting it on the table before him. He reached for the tinderbox, and by feel, withdrew the steel, the flint, and the matches.
"This ball gown was not the best choice for an outing such as this."
"You should let your lady's maid go at once." ~ within Chapter 6
