|Summary, etc.:|| In serving the wealthy power brokers of New York society, Frank Tripp has finally gained the respectability and security his own upbringing lacked. There's no issue he cannot fix...except for one: the beautiful and reckless daughter of an important client who doesn't seem to understand the word danger. Excitement lay just below Forty-Second Street and Mamie Greene is determined to explore all of it-while playing a modern-day Robin Hood along the way. What she doesn't need is her father's lawyer dogging her every step and threatening her efforts to help struggling families in the tenements. However, she doesn't count on Frank's persistence...or the sparks that fly between them.

Attorney Frank Tripp has developed quite a reputation as a problem-solver, but he has never encountered a puzzle quite like Marion "Mamie" Greene. Unbeknownst to her tycoon father, Mamie has been slipping out at night in order to visit some of New York City's most scandalous gambling establishments. What Frank finds to be even more shocking is that Mamie has been discretely relieving some of her fellow gamblers of a good chunk of their pocket change without the gentlemen being any the wiser. When Frank collars Mamie and insists that she give up her Robin Hood act, she is less than amenable. Of course, when Mamie later discovers that she needs Frank's skills as an attorney for one of her charity cases, she is suddenly open to negotiating with him. A brilliantly rendered historical setting, vividly drawn and memorable characters, and plenty of smoldering sexual tension that eventually combusts in sexy love scenes add a marvelous sense of zest to the start of Shupe's Gilded Age-set Uptown Girls series.
