London's social season is in full swing, and Victorian aristocracy can't stop whispering about a certain gentleman who claims to be the direct descendant of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette. But he's not the only topic of wagging tongues. Drawing rooms, boudoirs, and ballrooms are abuzz with the latest news of an audacious cat burglar who has been systematically stealing valuable items that once belonged to the ill-fated queen.

Light gossip turns serious when the owner of one of the pilfered treasures is found murdered, and the mysterious thief develops a twisted obsession with Lady Emily Ashton. It will take all of Emily's wit and perseverance to unmask her stalker and ferret out the murderer, while faced with a brewing scandal that threatens both her reputation and her romance with her late husband's best friend, the dashing Colin Hargreaves.

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Hannah Courtright | 1/21/2014

    " Better than the first one, if that is possible. It is absolutely enthralling. I am addicted to this series, officially. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Libby | 1/16/2014

    " I just adore these stories set in Victorian England, something I find a little surprising. This widow has the money and personality to set her own way. But she finds that society still makes demands and she must give in some to those demands. I have to keep reminding myself that life wasn't like this for the vast majority.... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Laurel | 12/26/2013

    " I am loving this series. The cover of the first book said "if Jane Austen had written Da Vinci Code". For someone like me who loves period drama, historical fiction, an English romance, and a good mystery, this series is a great find. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kim Fortin | 12/24/2013

    " so much fun to read!! I loved trying to be faster than Emily and solving the mystery and I loved the hint of romance between her and Colin. So much fun that I instantly picked up the next book in the series and couldn't wait to find out more about Lady Ashton!! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Goalieokc | 12/22/2013

    " Delightful murder mystery in a historical context (Victorian era England) that is part of a series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lauren | 12/22/2013

    " Delightful quick mystery "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Michelle | 12/18/2013

    " I not only think the book is clever and well written, I adore the historical accuracy. It's so hard to pull off, and keep the story interesting. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ginger | 10/2/2013

    " Book 2 in Lady Emily series. I give it 3.5 out of 5. Easy read, liked the mystery, in love with Colin, and will continue the rest of the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/1/2013

    " If I had to live in the Victorian era, I'd definitely want to be Lady Emily. Now where's my port? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Cindi (cheesygiraffe) | 5/19/2013

    " Really enjoyable read. I loved learning about Marie Antoinette and Louis Charles. This mystery was harder for me to figure out than the first book. Hopefully the next book is even better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sbaird | 4/30/2013

    " I did not read Tasha Alexander's 1st novel but I enjoyed this one in the series and I did not feel that I was missing anything by reading it out of order. I liked her style and appreciation for one of my favorite historical eras. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amanda Hickman | 4/28/2013

    " I liked the mystery in this book a lot more than book one. I like a book where you can learn something about history while you're being entertained with suspense/romance. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Christie | 4/11/2013

    " The book after "And Only to Deceive", but I was a bit disappointed in it--there was a LOT of talk about mistresses and affairs and all that, and I was not thrilled with it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meg J. | 4/2/2013

    " A nice fluffy romantic mystery. A fun diversion on Thanksgiving break! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tonya | 3/11/2013

    " Another entertaining story in a great series, with mystery, a great protagonist, and intelligence. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Michele | 1/22/2013

    " I probably shouldn't have read this right after reading an Austen--quite a big difference (this one describes a much more "modern" Victorian age). But, overall it was an enjoyable read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 11/3/2012

    " Another clean, romantic brain candy book.....I seem to be addicted to books written around London's "Seasons." Love the bit of mystery involved! Ah ha ha ha ah ah, just found out it is a series! YAY! Too bad I read #2 first! :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Meredith | 9/28/2012

    " This book really interested my because of the ostricizing that Lady Emily receives from her peers in the upper class. The mystery is a good story and the continuing relationship drama with Collin and Emily adds a little spice to the story. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Abby Fick | 9/3/2012

    " I think this was better than Book 1. Will continue the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dawn | 8/3/2012

    " The ending was a surprise though. "
