“To Match a Thief” by Maggie Robinson
Ex-pickpocket Sir Simon Keith can now afford the best of everything. But London’s most-desired courtesan is his lost love Lucy. Now Simon will need his wits and his considerably large…wiles to win his way back into her bed—and into her heart.
A Knack for Trouble happens to be my favorite of the three stories. After their night of romance that should not have happened Aidan and Rose’s life completely turn upside down. It is not until years later that they run into one another again and realize the passion is still there and cannot be denied. Throw in a little murder mystery and Aidan’s little gift he inherited from his Irish father and I was hooked.
“A Knack for Trouble” by Mia Marlowe
Lord Aidan Stonemere didn’t go from prison to a title by playing by society’s rules. If he wants something, he takes it. Rosalinde Burke didn’t object to being taken. Once. To keep her from marrying a proper viscount, Aidan will do whatever it takes to remind her how deliciously good being bad feels…Overall a wonderful book that is nice to disappear into for a few hours.
