15,50

Cecilia Bassingwaite is the ideal Victorian lady. She’s also a thief. Like the other members of the Wisteria Society crime sorority, she flies around England drinking tea, blackmailing friends, and acquiring treasure by interesting means. Sure, she has a dark and traumatic past and an overbearing aunt, but all things considered, it’s a pleasant existence. Until the men show up. Ned Lightbourne is a sometimes assassin who is smitten with Cecilia from the moment they meet. Unfortunately, that happens to be while he’s under direct orders to kill her. His employer, Captain Morvath, who possesses a gothic abbey bristling with cannons and an unbridled hate for the world, intends to rid England of all its presumptuous women, starting with the Wisteria Society. Ned has plans of his own. But both men have made one grave mistake. Never underestimate a woman.

Cecilia Bassingwaite belongs to The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels.

Yet this is no ordinary Victorian lady’s society . . .

Full of pirates, thieves and ne’er-do-wells, these women spend their days pickpocketing and blackmailing their way around the country all before their afternoon tea.

But when Cecilia meets Ned Lightbourne her world is set to change forever.

Because he’s a paid assassin and she’s his next hit.

Under the employment of the dastardly Captain Morvath – who wants to rid the world of these Lady Scoundrels – Ned knows he has one job to do.

But when he lays eyes on the feisty, beautiful Cecilia he’s faced with a conundrum:

Does he kill her . . . or fall in love with her?

Bridgerton meets Peaky Blinders in this swashbuckling tale of scoundrels and society, crime and crumpets. As these enemies turn to allies and might just fall in love along the way . . .
