Eve Stanhope masquerades as a foreign princess at ton parties, stealing jewels from the nobility she despises and returning to her London slum at the end of the night. She's carefully plotting revenge on her former employer—a society cad who's ruined her reputation. Now it's her turn to ruin him. What she doesn't expect is to encounter the criminally handsome Orchid Thief on one of her heists…
Philip Rosemont, Viscount Wesley, is also in disguise. Bored and stifled by society, he steals jewels for fun and leaves orchids as his calling cards. He knows the woman he's cornered at the ball is no aristocrat, much less the Princess of Valdastock. But something tells him she's not exactly common, either. Now he must uncover her motives while he enjoys her illicit kisses. Can these two become partners in crime even as they give in to their mutual seduction?
My Rating: 3 out of 5
This was an ok book but not one of my favorites. I felt wanting in certain parts. I enjoyed the ending but it seemed far fetched. I would have liked a twist where Eve's background was concerned. Maybe something that would of made the ending more possible, say a aristocratic father?! I liked how Philip dealt with the Constable in the end as well. The Dr. who studies skulls was just out there and, I felt, completely unnecessary. It was a quick read more fluff then anything else. Good to take you mind off of life and entertain you.
