Editorial Reviews


"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."

"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

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.

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!

I received this book as an E-Galley from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review. I received no further compensation for my review. I was so excited to get a chance to read this second book in the Astrology series.

This was a really good read. I loved all the secrets and mystery. This wasn't just a romance but a mystery. It was great to see Eliza and "Lord Lightning" again as well. Lord and Lady Hartwood are running a home for girls who live on the streets. Eliza wants to try and give them a second chance to better themselves. Temperance ends up in the home but has trouble with the reforming part, especially with Miles hot on her tail trying to convince her to become his mistress. Nothing is straightforward in this book. Everyone seems to be hiding something. It was a wonderful story of love against all odds. I am really liking the Astrology Series. I'm really looking forward to reading more books from Jenny Brown! This book is an adult book with sexual scenes.
