The Den of Iniquity by Anabelle Bryant Review



Welcome to the most notorious address in London…

Beneath the airs and graces of the Ton lies The Underworld – London’s most scandalous gambling hall.

The only thing darker and more debauched that the hall itself? The proprietor, Max Sinclair. As mysterious as the corners of the city he stalks, Max has vowed to take revenge against the men who murdered his mother. And The Underworld attracts London’s darkest characters – the perfect partners in crime.

But when Lady Vivienne Beaumont enters The Underworld, Max’s life becomes more dangerous than he ever thought possible.

Enter a world of lust, lawlessness and obsession with The Den of Iniquity, the first in Anabelle Bryant’s Bastards of London series.


First of all, this book has the most fabulous tag-line: Welcome to the most notorious address in London. Talk about intriguing! If that doesn’t draw you in, I don’t know what will. I’ve said before that Regency romance isn’t my usual genre, but I always enjoy reading outside of my comfort zone. Anabelle Bryant has delivered another sizzling romance that kept me hooked from start to finish!

Max SInclair is the owner of The Underworld, a gambling hall where people go to let loose and spend big. However, pain lives at Max’s core; his mother was brutally murdered and he’s out for revenge. By running The Underworld, he’s hoping he can enlist the help of some of the dark characters it attracts. He doesn’t bargain, however, on Lady Vivienne Beaumont…

Anabelle Bryant’s strengths lie in creating wonderfully-drawn world and characters, and these strengths are evident in The Den of Iniquity. The descriptions of Max, Vivienne and the host of background characters are beautifully vivid and visual and I loved  being able to picture them in my head. The chemistry between Max and Vivienne was delicious throughout, as was Max’s conflict between his desire for revenge and his love for Vivienne.

Overall, I really enjoyed this book. Anabelle Bryant’s signature style and flair were stamped all over it and made it a highly enjoyable tale of romance and revenge.
