The Raven is notorious for his crimes, but also for being the son of a lord. He has more than just the skills of a con man; he has the skills of a proper gentleman, whether he often shows those skills or not. He has, for the most part, forsaken his upbringing to create a life for himself as he sees fit. But Raven is not the only one to forsake his upbringing. In Raven’s Tears by Alesia and Michael Matson, the Lady Angelique has also cast aside her birthright, though that birthright may not be as fortunate as the one Raven has given up. She has become a proper lady, one with rights, privileges and power, and yet this is not enough to keep her content. She must find a way to entertain herself outside the confines of society and being with Raven is not quite enough.

It’s difficult not to relate to the way Angel feels, caught up in a world where she is considered a simple woman who can’t do anything for herself when she’s an intelligent woman. She has the intelligence, spark, and feelings that most modern women have and can easily relate to. Then of course there’s all the mischief that she and Raven get into, both together and apart. They both have secrets and they seem to be made for each other. It’s just going to be difficult getting them to work through their differences and the problems they have in confiding to really make a relationship work - if it’s even possible with everything they have hidden from each other.
