Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

Cecilia Bassingwaite belongs to a very prestigious circle of women: The Wisteria Society of Lady Scoundrels.

Yet this is no ordinary Victorian lady's society—as it's full of pirates, thieves and ne'er-do-wells.

These women spend their days pickpocketing and blackmailing their way around the country all before it's time to sit down for 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....

Unexpected and entertaining

Found this book to be a breath of fresh air. It was both unexpected and funny. Once started you want to keep going to find out what happens to the wonderful characters. Don’t want to give anything away but would highly recommend. Look forward to book 2!

Easy and topsy turvy

This book will grab you by the collar and take you down a Victorian / Piratical rabbit hole.

Enjoy!

Unexpected!

I really enjoyed this! My favourite narrator was the reason I initially chose it and I’m so glad I did, it made me really chuckle! Strong, funny slightly (very odd!) women loved it

Thoroughly Enjoyable Listen

I wasn’t sure when I first started listening to this book but, it didn’t take long before I was absolutely hooked. Great story with lots of humour and a romance.
Enjoyed it so much that I’m going straight away to buy Book 2 in the Series.

The Narrator was fabulous and brought the story and all of the characters to life.

Didn't finish, a pale mash up of genres and tropes

I don't often give up on a book, and I have enjoyed other fluffy magical worlds and ripping yarns for girls, which describes this.
But the characters are very 2 dimensional, the writing is uninspired.
When most of the cast got kidnapped I totally failed to care, and was bored at the prospect of the heroine's rescue.

Witty. Not your average romance

This book made me laugh out loud so many times. Incredibly funny I can’t wait to listen to it again for l the hidden jokes. A sweet romance. Would love to see it made into a film.

A warning to all Estate Agents

Highly entertaining and beautifully narrated. It’s great to finally learn the fate of the Pucklechurch Community Library

pure escapism and pirate capers

a very easy listen and expertly read/performed. Full of debauchery, piracy, silliness and etiquette, this is a good listen if you just want to sail away into another world
