Overview

“Kathryn Smith weaves a heart-wrenching tale of love lost and found that satisfies the soul. Don’t miss this one!”
New York Times bestselling author Sabrina Jeffries

 

USA Today bestseller Kathryn Smith follows the success of When Seducing a Duke with When Marrying a Scoundrel—the second book in her sexy Victorian series centered around a group of wealthy and powerful patrons of London’s most prestigious house of pleasure. Romance superstar Lisa Kleypas says, “Smith writes with spectacular passion and flare” and Sherilynn Kenyon promises that, “Kathryn Smith never disappoints”—high praise that is more than supported by this breathtaking story of a beautiful fortuneteller whose heart is thrown into disarray when the dashing former conman she wed unexpectedly bursts back into her life.

Meet the Author

Kathryn Smith has always loved happy endings. From the bedtime stories her wildly imaginative mother told, to the soap operas she wasn't supposed to watch, Kathryn loved to speculate as to how the characters would end up. Needless to say the entire Smith household heard about it when things did not go as young Kathryn thought they ought. Through her school years, Kathryn wrote stories and books for her friends to read. Even during college, when she studied journalism, her need to make up her own tales often drove her to late nights at the typewriter, writing about sexy men and the women they fell in love with. Fortunately, Kathryn's idea of sexy has changed over the years. Instead of rock stars and spies she writes about lords and...well, spies. The best part is she gets to share these stories with a few more people than were in her homeroom class!

Years ago Jack Farrington abandoned his wife. To eat Sadie Moon became a fortune teller, which she is quite good at. However, lately her tea leaves readings have included some personal messages that she cannot fathom what they mean. Jack's visage keeps showing up. In 1877 wealthy investor Jack Friday and Sadie meet when she wants to lease a store from him. Neither lets the other know they recognize one another as their spouse. He remains angry that she deserted him and she feels likewise. Both moved on. However, each quickly realizes they remain in love, but will either risk their heart again; if they do they will learn the truth of why they separated and who plots to keep them apart. If they don't, a second chance to correct what should have been will be lost as will their respective hearts. This is a strong second chance Victorian romance if either of the still in love star-crossed pair takes that key first step of reconciliation. Both are likable but obstinate not trusting the other or their betraying heart. Fans will enjoy this profound historical due to the strong lead pair while reading the tea leaves that insist their friends will continue the gender war. Harriet Klausner
