A Princess of Thieves
Raised among London’s most notorious criminals, a twist of fate landed Adelaide Frampton in the bright ballrooms of Mayfair, where she masquerades as a quiet wallflower—so plain and unassuming that no one realizes she’s the Matchbreaker…using her superior skills as a thief to help brides avoid the altar.
A King of Reputation
Henry, Duke of Clayborn, has spent a lifetime living in perfection. He has no time for the salacious gossip that arises every time the Matchbreaker ends another groom. His own reputation is impeccable—and the last thing he needs is a frustrating, fascinating woman discovering the truth of his past, or the secrets he holds close.
A Royal Match
When the two find themselves on a breakneck journey across Britain to stop a wedding, it’s impossible for Clayborn to resist this woman who both frustrates and fascinates him. But late-night carriage rides make for delicious danger…and soon Adelaide is uncovering Clayborn’s truths, throwing his well-laid plans into chaos…and threatening to steal his heavily guarded heart.
The “Hell’s Belles” are back baby!!! Picking up where BOMBSHELL left off, Adelaide Frampton—a proper thief in the guise of a Mayfair wallflower—is in the midst of a heist, in the thick of the notorious Bully Boy’s lairs when she encounters the most unlikely thief imaginable attempting to steal her prize.
The Duke of Clayborn, is the stuffiest Duke in England and a thorn in Adelaide’s side that she is determined to pluck out. But suddenly circumstances have forced the two of them to form an improbably alliance as they race-literally-to Scotland to intercept an eloping couple. The Duke, to insure they make it to the altar and Adelaide to complete a mission for the Belles.
Angst, romance and adventure ensue as secret passions are revealed and villains thwarted, in this humor laced romp that steals your interest from the very first page and never let’s go!
Henry and Adelaide are simply adorable! I loved them both so much and enjoyed every second of this book, which is no surprise really. Sarah MacLean is my go-to author when I’m looking for high romance, that’s a little spicy, a little sweet and whole lot of fun.
To say that I am impatient for more of the Belles is an understatement and I simply cannot wait for our resident bomb-maker, Imogene to clash with a certain handsome inspector in the next one.
