India Black and the Rajah's Ruby (novella)- Bookish Thoughts

What India Black and The Rajah's Ruby is about:
India Black uses her wit and wiles as both a madam and a spy, proving she’s the best there is when it comes to undercover work....
Drawn into intrigue by her lover Philip Barrett, India finds herself being used as a pawn to help him steal a valuable jewel. Turning the tables, she proves that India Black answers to no man, no matter how attractive he may be…

This novella struck the perfect note for me. I felt that the author did a great job with setting the back story as to how and where India Black got the start-up money for her brothel. I really enjoyed India's character and laughed my way through this short story.

Recommend? Absolutely. It was fun and satisfying. I didn't feel that the author wrote it as a "gimmick" type of book. It was a quick read and I wanted more!!
