Hearts of Stoneleigh Manor Book 2
Heat Factor: It’s way hotter than my usual fare.
Character Chemistry: So, they kiss in the first few pages and it’s pretty clear from then on they’re a good match.
Plot: Emma has a whole crew of siblings and dogs she’s responsible for after the unexpected death of her father. Her Uncle teaches her how to be a cat burglar, and she steals jewelry from the wealthy to keep their family afloat. HOWEVER. When she tries to steal a ruby necklace from the Duke of Gilchrest’s mother, she finds her plans foiled and then he turns out to be a really strong sort of cinnamon roll (a cinnamon cookie? A ginger snap? Should we make that a thing?) and everything unravels from there.
Overall: This book is so fresh and gripping–I could not put it down.
