    Historical Romance

    Thought provoking and different this book made me think and think hard about marriage, love, money, family, trust, responsibility, status, expectations and how difficult and strange life in England during the late 1700’s must have been. Knowing that if I had lived back then who I could marry and what my life might have been like would all have depended on what rank I had in society or perhaps the coin in my father’s coffers is rather unsettling to contemplate. On top of these facts expectations of love might never come to fruition even though an heir would be expected. In this story a man with a title ends up marrying a woman of the middle class for the dowry she will bring to his family. They do not love one another and what happens early in their marriage ends up tearing them and their relationship apart. Three years later they meet up again with both having changed in ways they would not have had they not spent time apart. I found this to be a well written book with characters I could relate to. I had favorites and also those that I disliked intensely. I enjoyed seeing the development of the relationship between St. John and Sarah as they spent time together and finally got to know one another in ways they did not during their short earlier time together. For a debut novel this was spot-on and one that I highly recommend. I look forward to reading the second book in the series when it comes out later this year. Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books for the copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    To Kiss a Thief by Susanna Craig! Awesome!

    To Kiss a Thief (Runaway Desires #1) by Susanna Craig is a fantastic debut Historical Romance. Set in Georgian England. What a debut!! A phenomenal new voice in Georgian Romance. Meet, Sarah Pevensey and St. John Sutliffe, Viscount Fairfax. Bound together in an arranged marriage, but when a scandal erupts on the of night of their marriage, Sarah is persuaded to run away to a small fishing village on the coast. With secrets abound, suspense, a bit of mystery, passion, betrayal, deceit, challenges, danger and the promise of love everlasting, Ms. Craig has masterfully and brilliantly written a captivating tale of love and betrayal during Georgian England. Fast paced, with engaging and charming characters. Well, actually a few not so charming, as well. Readers will be captivated, entranced and mesmerized by Ms. Craig's, skillfully written romance. "To Kiss a Thief" is one of those stories you just can't put down. An absolute delight to read! An epic love story with flawed characters, turmoil, struggles and challenges. But will St. John and Sarah find their true HEA or lose all to lies, deception, mistrust and outside influence. A must read and a true treasure! I can't wait for the next installment! Highly recommended for fans of Georgian era, romance, suspense, passion and romance. Received for an honest review from Net Galley. However, all opinions and thoughts are my own.

    Lyrical and unforgettable ...

    To Kiss a Thief is my first Susanna Craig read and it's a show stopper. Sarah is an innocent in a world of betrayal, heartache and manipulation. Fairfax is forced into a situation that brings about scandal, resentment and a rush to judgement from his peers. A forced marriage and missing necklace leads to suspenseful romance that is crafted masterfully and a lyrical sonnet that's melody lingers after all is said and done.
