Genre: historical romance, romance, humour

Rating: ★★★★

Richard (aka Major Lord Mallory) returns home from “the wars” and finds his beloved grandfather on his deathbed. His cold non-maternal grandmother sends him on a mission to find the long-lost Mallory heart before her husband dies. At one of the social events in London he sees the brooch pinned to Lady Isabel Weymouth’s bosom. Was this socialite widow a jewel thief as well? Richard steals the brooch from Isabel (who is borrowing the jewelry from her grandmother) then Isabel steals it back the next day. So begins the game of jewel thievery but soon they don’t know if they are stealing the brooch or one anothers’s heart.

A fun historical romp sizzling with passion and a hint of mystery and action. A great read all around. Hern has as a way with dialogue and characters. Even when they were a bit cliched you still felt love or hate for them. It is a predictable story that keeps you entertained.
