Book Review: Passion and Pleasure in London

Passion and Pleasure in London by Melody Thomas

Description: Winter is all but abandoned when her father dies and her mother is left insane. She is responsible for more than just herself and her brother - she is responsible for her village. Imagine her surprise when her newest "target" isn't just a rich man coming through the village but instead someone who seems to be here to stay.

But what man would want a thief who has secrets? Can Rory Jameson the true heir to the local estate be that man?

Thoughts: I wasn't sure that I would like a book where the woman was a thief and the man was a former spy working for the Crown. A lot of those books have way too much detail about things that don't entertain me. But I was pleasantly surprised. This book focused on all the things it should have. Their romance. Their lives. Their families. It made it an interesting and quick read.

What genre would you consider this?
Historical Romance
