From the beginning of “To Kiss a Thief” I was already trying to figure out who the real thief was. Of course our heroine Sarah Pevensey wasn’t the thief, but she’s been accused of stealing jewels. So she hides in a village where everyone loves her. The author was able to pull me into her unique storyline from the start and she never let up.
I loved that both main characters and how they had to get to know each other again. They are married already via an arranged marriage. But then the scandal pulls them away from each other and they have to find their way back to each other.
The author also adds in some additional characters that round the story out. You have an evil step mother of his and her parents who act like she cannot handle real world.
Readers are in for a wonderful mystery blackmail thief novel. Readers are pulled in by the lies, anger, and deceptions. It’s all great stuff that makes this a good book. I cannot wait to read more from this author!
This is the first book in the The Runaway Desires Series.
In this captivating new series set in Georgian England, a disgraced woman hides from her marriage—for better or worse…
Sarah Pevensey had hoped her arranged marriage to St. John Sutliffe, Viscount Fairfax, could become something more. But almost before it began, it ended in a scandal that shocked London society. Accused of being a jewel thief, Sarah fled to a small fishing village to rebuild her life.
The last time St. John saw his new wife, she was nestled in the lap of a soldier, disheveled, and no longer in possession of his family’s heirloom sapphire necklace. Now, three years later, he has located Sarah and is determined she pay for her crimes. But the woman he finds is far from what he expected. Humble and hardworking, Sarah has nothing to hide from her husband—or so it appears. Yet as he attempts to woo her to uncover her secrets, St. John soon realizes that if he’s not careful, she’ll steal his heart…
