In The Jewel of Winter, we meet the Earl, The Crime Lord, and the Scotland Yard Detective who make up our group of thieves, Jess Watson (a widow and the innkeeper), and her sister Judith. The scene is set. Once she is caught listening to their conversation, Edmund, Earl of Winterbourne, decides to use her to hide the jewels he hopes to trade for the information about his sister’s whereabouts. Jess tries to outsmart him and steals the jewels and refuses to tell him where they are. He hauls her off to London to help him find where the Earl of Norwich acquired the jewels that belonged to his sister. He leaves Simon (the Crime Lord) at the inn to find the jewels and sends Monty north to follow a lead to his sister’s location. Their London mission doesn’t go as planned and as soon as Simon lets him know he has the jewels, Edmund sends Jess back home, even though there is an attraction. Will this be the end of their relationship? Will the thieves find the Earl’s sister? Keep reading to find the answer.
In At Winter’s Demand, Simon (known as the Lord of Devil’s Acre) is left with Jess’s sister Judith to locate the jewels Jess hid from him. These two bumped heads, literally, at least Judith bumps his, with a frying pan, twice. He eventually finds the jewels and loses them again (he thinks) on the way to London. When the train reaches London, someone else kidnaps Judith. Being the Lord of Devil’s Acre has it advantages. He is able to find and retrieve her. Edmund has gone back to the inn to let Jess know what has happened to Judith. On the train to join Edmund and Jess, the Madam from Devil’s Acre captures Simon. The scheme fails. What spoiled it? How will Madam be dealt with, and by whom? Is there hope for a happy ending for Judith and Simon? Keep reading to find out. Word has come that Monty has located Katherine (the Earl’s sister). The question is can he get her back to her brother.
In Under Winter's Control, Monty finds Katherine in a small village in Scotland. She is living alone and working in an inn. Katherine had not been kidnapped. She ran away. The third book is one of discoveries. Monty discovers why Katherine ran away and what happened to her jewels (and why). We discover that Monty has loved Katherine for as long as he has known her. He discovers that she has loved him almost as long. They do go back to London, where several interesting things happen. Edmund tells Katherine that he has accepted an offer for her hand (again, he never learns) from a villain wannabe in the person of the Laird we met in the inn in Scotland. He actually thinks he can get away with blackmailing the Thieves of Winter. It doesn’t work. It’s time for resolution. Will the siblings reconcile? Will love flourish for the Thieves of Winter and their feisty companions? You know there is only one way to find out.
I enjoyed this trilogy. The characters were interesting well developed. The heroes are an unusual group of associates. The heroines are tough enough to take on these three dangerous men. Three pieces of a puzzle blend together seamlessly to provide a solid and engaging plot.
