My Review of book one, India Black
My Review of book two, India Black and the Widow of Windsor


My Opinion:
I love India Black! Both of the books I have read have been 5 star reviews, and this novella is no different.
Espionage, mystery and a strong female lead character make up this series, and who couldn't love that?! I know it's based in London, but cant help but always picture Russian settings like Catherine the Great's house as the brothel India owns. Crazy, but let's my imagination go wild.
I love the series, both books and this novella. They're different, they're intriguing and they're exciting!
Need I say more?
December 31st you can get this novella for yourself. You can pre-order though. I suggest it.


5/5
