A seductive thief
Lady’s maid Molly Wilkins is done with thieving—and cheating and stabbing and all the rest of it. She’s determined to keep her hands to herself, so she really shouldn’t be tempted to seduce her employer’s prim and proper companion, Alice. But how can she resist when Alice can’t seem to keep her eyes off Molly?
Finds her own heart
For the first time in her life, Alice Stapleton has absolutely nothing to do. The only thing that seems to occupy her thoughts is a lady’s maid with a sharp tongue and a beautiful mouth. Her determination to know Molly’s secrets has her behaving in ways she never imagined as she begins to fall for the impertinent woman.
Has been stolen
When an unwelcome specter from Alice’s past shows up unexpectedly at a house party, Molly volunteers to help the only way she knows how: with a little bit of mischief.
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
This is my first time reading a F/F romance let alone a Historical F/F romance. I’m glad my first was written by an author I adore! As usual for Cat Sebastian the heroines are well written and have lots of character. I like how she made the intimate scenes between Alice and Molly more real to life rather than the crap you see in adult films, that was one of the biggest reasons I hadn’t yet read any f/f romance books. This book has adventure, strength, empowerment, and acceptance, all things that make up a great story.
As the daughter of a impoverish Vicar, Alice Stapleton,was not prepared for her new life as a lady’s companion. But her new position not only saved her from starvation, it led her to make friends withMrs. Wraxhall’s lady’s maid. Through her friendship with Molly she not only discovers her sense of self, she is empowered to stand up for herself and right the wrongs done to her in her past. Her friendship with Molly also gives her the confidence her to embrace other aspects of herself that she denied herself in the past.
Molly Wilkins needs her position as Mrs. Wraxhall’s lady’s maid and she is determined not to mess it up or let anyone get in the way, not even the very attractive new lady’s companion, who can’t seem to take her eyes off of Molly. Will sharing the thievery skills she acquired to survive in the past help her and her new friend gain their independence, or will they be caught red handed and lose it all?
I am glad this was my first f/f romance. Let me know what you think of it?
