About the Author
Carolyn Jewel was born on a moonless night. That darkness was seared into her soul and she became an award-winning and USA Today bestselling author of historical and paranormal romance. She has a very dusty car and a Master’s degree in English that proves useful at the oddest times. An avid fan of fine chocolate, finer heroines, Bollywood films, and heroism in all forms, she has two cats and two dogs. Also a son. One of the cats is his. Shana Galen is the bestselling author of passionate Regency romps, including the RT Reviewers' Choice The Making of a Gentleman. Kirkus says of her books, "The road to happily-ever-after is intense, conflicted, suspenseful and fun," and RT Bookreviews calls her books "lighthearted yet poignant, humorous yet touching." She taught English at the middle and high school level off and on for eleven years. Most of those years were spent working in Houston's inner city. Now she writes full time. She's happily married and has a daughter who is most definitely a romance heroine in the making. Grace Burrowes started writing romances as an antidote to empty nest and soon found it an antidote to life in general. She is the sixth out of seven children, and grew up reading voraciously when she wasn't enjoying the company of her horse. Grace is a practicing child welfare attorney in western Maryland, and loves to hear from her readers.

How to Steal a Duke (in Ten Days, Give or Take a Few Days, But Definitely in Less than a Fortnight) by Shana Galen A haughty duke and an impoverished lady turned cat burglar travel to the wilds of Cornwall in search of a castle, a mad earl, and an arcane manuscript. 3 1/2 stars
The Viscount’s First Kiss by Carolyn Jewel Viscount Daunt and the painfully shy Magdalene Carter turn friendship into love in their search for a legendary medieval manuscript. 2 1/2 stars
Seton hires Prof. Peebles’ daughter, Philomena, to translate his uncle’s will as it is in Latin. There may be clues in the will and in his library. Best line from Seton: “please don’t bid me farewell when we are quarreling.”
Dominick believes there may be clues at a remote keep, The Temples, on the Cornwall coast. The problem is it’s on the cliffs, partially surrounded by the sea and a mad earl lives there. Rosalyn, whose family has come on hard times, meets the Duke as she is trying to escape from an attempted theft. He saw her climbing the wall and prevents her arrest as he wants to hire her to climb into the keep, which she does. The keep’s lady has told them all the books were sold after her husband died.
Harry has travelled to his estate as he has bought the contents of several private libraries hoping to find “the Dukes”. Magdalene Carter, his neighbor, is now a widow. Harry has loved her for a long time and hopes she will help him go through the new books. They both want to find the missing volumes.
I really enjoyed the premise of this book but was very disappointed in the ending. I was expecting an epilogue with Prof. Peebles retirement party. While the reader knows if they did, or did not, find the books we are left wondering about Prof. Peebles reaction.
I have upgraded my review as the authors have added an epilogue which was what the book needed to feel complete. Thanks Shana Galen.
