About the Author
At the tender age of twelve, Sabrina Jeffries decided she wanted to be a romance writer. It took her eighteen more years and a boring stint in graduate school before she sold her first book, but now her sexy and humorous historical romances routinely land on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists and have won several awards. She lives in North Carolina with her husband and son, where she writes full-time and is working on her next novel.

Morgan has had a difficult upbringing, and the only peace he can recall is the structured life in the navy. Nevertheless he has been persuaded to pose as a fence in Spitalfields, an area rife with pickpockets and thieves, in order to catch a villain. An area where the Home for pickpockets financed by the efforts of Lady Clara Stanbourne is located. Lady Clara is horrified by the appearance of a fence so close to her Home for pickpockets – his ‘shop’ representing temptation for her young charges. And even more horrified to realise she feels a strong attraction to the man she perceives as being a criminal and rogue of the first order. Clara sets out to do all that she can to rid herself of the temptation he represents. And, contrary to Morgan’s first impression of her, all that she can is quite some considerable amount.
Morgan and Clara seem very real to me - fleshed out and well constructed as characters. They don’t instantly know all about each other, and even three quarters of the way into the book are still discovering both each other and themselves. They each make assumptions about the other that experience later reveals to be incorrect – just as first impressions can be mistaken in life. Clara is no simpering miss, and Morgan is no male to be manipulated by charm and wiles. Both have definite minds of their own, ideas of right and wrong that they are willing to defend, and both are just a little bit outside the ‘norm’ for their station. While being very different from each other, both ultimately have the same needs. When told with Jeffries usual skill, this makes for a tale of two people who seem all wrong for each other finding out how very well they fit. Not without some struggle along the way, but that makes the end result all the more worth while.
Only, problems immediately arrive in the lovely form of Lady Clara Stanbourne. Poor Lass is a Stanbourne, know reformers, so she runs a Reform school for children pickpockets, trying to teach them a profession so they can better themselves. However, her mother was a Doggett, and while they are great reformers as well, they were also a wee bit wicked. Thus far, Clara has managed to avoid the curse of her Doggett blood, but when faced with Morgan Pryce, she is in for a bumpy road. She at first provokes him, then tries to bribe him to move locations, but slowly but surely is drawn to him with all the riddles he presents.
It's a charming tale, with Morgan and Clara vivid fun, sexy characters. This writer just gets better with every book.
