Review

"Five Blue Ribbons... Wonderfully imbued with rich historical detail, engaging characters, an originally creative plot, wit, astrology, loyalty, lethal secrets, sexual power, emotional transformation, betrayal and romance...  Definitely a keeper!!" --Romance Junkies

"Star Crossed Seduction is not a light, fluffy read - it is deep, it is emotional, and it is heart-wrenching as well as heart warming. The way it all came together was beautifully crafted, and should not be missed." --Rakehell.com

"This is Jenny Brown's second novel, but her exquisite characterization and unique sense of drama sparkles as brightly as that of a seasoned veteran. ..."[A] vividly emotional tale. " --Affaire de Coeur Book Reviews

"...a spellbinding regency romance with a star-studded twist...Brown has created a wonderful pair of main characters with unusual interests and abilities that really make them come alive."--Fresh Fiction

I have to admit, when I realized this was about two Scorpios, I wasn't sure they'd both survive the book. :) But I was pleasantly surprised to find that the attraction of similars can lead to really intense romance. At first, they might not seem that similar-- she's a pickpocket on the wrong side of the law, and he's a stalwart military man. But they both have tragic past events that keep them from trusting, and powerful inner needs that drive them towards each other... and away.

This book has dramatic events, scorching love scenes, an intriguing villain, and a pleasurable glimpse of the delightful heroine from Lord Lightning, here as a minor character who adds a human note to the gritty view of Regency London.

This isn't a light romp, but a deeply felt and dramatic historical romance.

I had not read a Romance novel in years and won this book as part of a "Romantic Evening" gift basket at my regional Astrology association's holiday party. Now I can't get enough! After reading this I devoured Jenny Brown's other two books in this series. It's a lovely escape from the real world. For the general reader this is a delightful exciting story- for an astrologer it's an in depth portrait of the motivations and needs of the given astrological signs of the characters. Looking forward to more! Please write faster Jenny!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is my first book by Jenny Brown, so I had no expectations. I read the blurb on netGalley, and thought it intriguing. I've never read a romance story that incorporated the Astrology, so I went for it. Let me just state that after reading it, I'm putting her début book and the first in her Lords of the Seventh House series, `Lord Lightning' on my Wish List and as soon as I get it, it'll go on top of my TBR pile.

This story is so much more than just a romance. The blurb above is only the beginning of this beautifully crafted and executed, heartwarming and heart wrenching love story. The author has taken the time and care in developing, dare I say giving birth, to two characters that literally jump off the pages with life.

I was impressed with its realistic portrayal of humanity of Trev and Tem. The emotions, doubts, second guessing and confusion of their feelings for each other were too real and heartfelt. This is one hundred percent character driven story that will grab you from that first paragraph where she introduces us to this young soldier that's not just lonely, but lost and in search of something that even he doesn't quite know what it is. As he meets and rescues Temperance Smith, his heart battles his mind over the fact that she gave him something no one ever did-the feeling of coming home.

The scene in the alley, when Tem runs away from him, and he's left all alone and humiliated is so raw that brought me to tears. I literally felt his pain and humiliation.

The scene after they're together for the first time is heartbreaking and very emotional. The depth and scope of these two characters made them very human and their road to each other became important to me.

More About the Author

Jenny Brown studied history in graduate school and her very first professional sale as a writer was a biographical piece about Louisa May Alcott's childhood. Years later, her favorite hobby continues to be reading biographies of people who lived in the 18th and 19th century. She has earned her living in many different ways: performing as a singer-songwriter in Western Massachusetts and Nashville, writing nonfiction, and, for the past fifteen years, running a successful small press.

Jenny has been a student of astrology since her teens. This ancient art helps her make sense of her life and accept that the way she is, with all its oddities, is the way she's supposed to be. Though she has always loved reading love stories set in the past, what got her writing them was finding, at last, the Hero of Her Own Romance.
