Jenny Brown has a beautiful way of writing not overly complex stories but with two deeply layered characters that the story centers around. With Trev and Temperance still waters run very deep as both show their Scorpio natures, being two sides of the same coin and dancing a deadly dance of trust and love, they have to balance their natures and trust in each other.

Brown steps somewhat away from the traditional regency that was so present in her debut book. SCS shows a more sensual side early on

"Making love with him would be like embracing an otter."

That was the point I started tweeting eyebrow-raising quotes on Twitter, not when I stopped reading. That didn't come until page 276. It was a decision I made not based on anything that had happened in the book, but because at 10:30pm, I had two choices: stay up to finish the book or put it down and go to bed, knowing I'd not pick it up again.

I chose sleep. I'd already begun to skim, and that was a pretty good deciding factor. It's always a

I won this as a first reads winner and I really liked this book. The romance was a little humorous and extremely steamy. I would definitely recommend this book. The plot was a bit dark times but I don't consider that a bad thing at all, it gave more life to the story and characters than had everything been completely happy all the way through with no kind of conflict. I won't spoil the book for anyone but I definitely would recommend it to others.

Interesting historical fiction. Set in London - on leave from India Captain Trevalyn catches a beautiful pickpocket who grabs his heart as well as his coin. The lovers are soon caught in a perilous web of intrigue as a coveted jewel of India goes missing.
Themes of trust are plumbed in this mystery.

This is my first book by Jenny Brown, so I had no expectations. I read the blurb on netGalley, and thought it intriguing. I've never read a romance story that incorporated the Astrology, so I went for it. Let me just state that after reading it, I'm putting her début book and the first in her Lords of the Seventh House series, `Lord Lightning' on my Wish List and as soon as I get it, it'll go on top of my TBR pile.

This story is so much more than just a romance. The blurb above is only the begin
Star Crossed Seduction is the second book in the Astrology series and the main characters Temperance Smith and Captain Miles Trevelyan represent the sign, Scorpio. Growing up I was a huge fan of astrology and literally gobbled up any information I could get on my sign, Gemini. I loved reading the daily horoscopes and learning about what my sign said about my personality. When I found out that in the past year the 13th sign Ophiuchus had been added to the zodiac, bumping me from Gemini to Taurus, ...more

Star – Crossed Seduction is the second book in the Astrology series by Jenny Brown. It has a unique concept of a romance novel based around astrology.I always have had a curious interest in astrology so I was keen to start reading this book. The previous book in this series has received good reviews too.

Captain Miles Trevelyan has just returned from his service from India when he meets pick- pocket Temperance Smith. He catches her red handed and thus our story begins. This story is based around

Star Crossed Seduction is a historical romance unlike anything I have yet to read. This is the second book in the new astrology historical romance series by Jenny Brown and while I think the whole concept is interesting, I felt a little confused. But let me start at the beginning…

I have always been interested in astrology. No, this does not mean the stars, that’s astronomy, I get confused with the two all the time. This story has many face

Jenny Brown puts a unique twist on romance with astrology in her latest historical romance release, Star Crossed Seduction.
This is the second book in a new Astrology series for Ms. Brown and it made a wonderfully stand alone. To be honest, I had no clue that it was a second in a series until I started to write this review. Lol Though I didn’t love this book I did like it quite a bit. The concept was intriguing, a historical romance based on astrology which was a skeptical thing back then. I ado

This was a really good read. I loved all the secrets and mystery. This wasn't just a romance but a mystery. It was great to see Eliza and "Lord Lightning" again as well. Lord and Lady Hartwood are running a home for girls who live on the streets. Eliza wants to try and give them a second chance to better themselves. Temperance ends up in the home but has trouble with the reforming part, especially with Miles hot on her tail trying to convince her to become his mistress. Nothing is ...more

I really liked this story of two Scorpios, full of distrust but learning how to love. I especially liked that Temperance and Trev had flaws and made mistakes. Many times, the hero and/or heroine is perfect and always does the right thing. The only thing that threw off the story for me was the whole intrigue section when Trev and Tem visit Sir Humphrey and what happens immediately afterwards. I thought that was a bit contrived and didn't flow with the rest of the book. But, once that section is ...more
