Star Crossed Seductionby Jenny Brown
Synopses & Reviews
An exciting and stunningly original new voice in Regency Era historical romance fiction, Jenny Brown works magic, mixing sensual romance with astrology for a truly unforgettable Star Crossed Seduction. Following the success of her sensational debut novel, Lord Lightning, Jenny continues her Lords of the Seventh House series—in which each hero is a different sign of the Zodiac—with an enthrallingly romantic tale of a British Captain of the Dragoons, a sexy Scorpion, who is smitten by a beautiful pickpocket bent upon revenge. A dark and sensual story reminiscent of the acclaimed novels of Loretta Chase, Anna Campbell, and Mary Balogh, but with a very tantalizing touch of the occult thrown in, Star Crossed Seduction is top-flight historical romance with a uniquely unforgettable difference.
A beautiful thief has stolen the heartof the one man in London whosesecrets are as dangerous as her own . . .
Shrewd and wily, pickpocket Temperance Smithneeds no mans favor to survive on Londonsunforgiving streets—even when shes caught red-handedby an officer of the hated dragoons.
On leave from India to find a proper bridein London, Captain Miles Trevelyan is easy prey for aseasoned pickpocket like Temperance. But whenthe dazzling thief steals first his wallet, then his heart,his pursuit throws them into a deadly world oftreason and betrayal that will force them to questioneverything they know about love, loyalty,and desire. For there can be no middle ground forthese two stormy-tempered Scorpios entangledin the star-crossed romance that threatensto destroy them both . . .
