"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

"...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.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1820 Dragoon Captain Miles Trevelyan has just retuned home to find a proper "military" bride after a decade stationed in India. One week in London and the bored Miles wants to go "home" as he was only fifteen when he enlisted following his father's death.

A tiny girl sells Miles a poorly drawn picture of a broadsword while all in black Temperance "Tem" Smith picks his pocket. However, Miles catches her in the act, but is frozen when he sees her. She flees knowing he saw her.

Miles cannot forget the woman in black and searches for her. She loathes herself for feeling passion for a dragoon as his unit killed her lover. While his mom seeks advice for her son's marital hunt from an astrologer who runs a homeless shelter for young women, Tem learns her dead lover lives in America. Trev finds her and persuades her to be his mistress. As lust turns to love, trust remains difficult for this pair of Scorpios to accept.

The second astrological Regency romance (see Lord Lightning) stars an intriguing pair who meet when she steals his wallet. The story line starts slow until the second encounter speeds up the pace as the two Scorpios battle one another and their respective hearts. Anchored by real historical tidbits interwoven into the plot, readers will enjoy this fun nineteenth century tale as love is in the stars.

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.
