TO SAVE HER FAMILY, SHE MUST BE VERY, VERY BAD…
Miss Judith Pengarden has a problem: her family is in debt, and soon will lose their home. What’s a dutiful sister to do to save her loved ones from ruination? Why, steal a few items from an aristocrat’s house–items he’ll surely never miss–and sell them to pay her family’s debts. Luckily for her, she meets Simon Montgomery, the new Earl of Cartwright, a recluse familiar with antiquities. He can help her keep her family from debtor’s prison, and he might just claim her heart too. Except instead of stealing from Simon’s neighbor, she breaks into the wrong house…
Simon is determined to change the way the world sees his family, even if it means he can no longer pursue his dreams of being a scholar to take on his new title. When a thief breaks into his home and steals a precious family heirloom, he vows to get the item back. The last thing he expects is that the girl he met at a garden party is a thief! When Jude is discovered with his possessions, how will she ever convince him that despite her deception, her love for him is the truth?
This one will definitely keep you guessing at times. I was never sure what was going to happen and when it would happen throughout the book. They both were doing what they could to help their families just one wasn’t a good idea. Their families are very unique and different, but lovable. I loved the ending a ton and how everyone reacted.
Jude is a very smart lady. I did love that she wanted to help her family no matter what. When she set her mind to something she did it even if it wasn’t for herself. She is a bit quieter than most, but not really shy.
Simon is the shyer one out of the two. I loved how awkward he could be and how smart he was. He definitely has had his struggles but is determined to take care of his sister and make sure his family is restored.
I really wanted to know more about his sister and mother. The same for her sister and trips.
