Kad su je stegnule neznančeve ruke, Octavia Morgan je shvatila da je upravo počinila najveću grešku svojeg života. Džeparenje se činilo kao jedino rješenje njezine očajne situacije. No sad je uhvaćena, a slijedi još gore. Jer opasno privlačan muškarac, kojeg je upravo opljačkala, nije obična žrtva, već najzloglasniji drumski razbojnik u Engleskoj. Opterećen svojom ...more

The story starts with three boys arguing over whose turn it is to fly a kite. One falls (perhaps not accidentally) and dies. He was the heir, and of the other two, twins, Collum is the eldest. But Phillip, the family's golden boy, accuses him.

Years later, highwayman Lord Nick is caught in the crowd as two of his merry men are hanged. He feels a flutter at his pocket, and sure enough, his pocket watch is gone. As the cries of "thief" go up, the beautiful Madonna next to him swoons. Nick isn't fo

Umm, is anyone forgetting that he practically drugs her and rapes her for this romance to get going? The "oh I used a condom" bullshit aside I was upset to read that he practically took her virginity while she was drugged and asleep in his room. Octavia should have stayed in the chair. Rape starting this relationship, no one forget that.

The beginning chapters were the most upsetting ones. First she's kidnapped by that freak, taken against her will to his little hideaway, made to suffer, and he d

I just didn't like this. At all. Especially after it was undoubtedly confirmed that Cullum raped Olivia. It was just too hard to digest after that. He disgusted me.

The characters were all just so awful and lacking in every respect. I'd read Valentine before this and I just kept comparing Theo and Sylvester with the characters here, and Olivia and Cullum were hopelessly lacking in the magnetic appeal and charm of the former pair.

Octavia is horrifyingly stupid. Or maybe stupidly oblivious. She ag

mind candy! the magic of escape Reread after many years.

Jane Feather sets this book in 1762, during the reign of George III (the Hanovarian line of the British monarchs). During a few of the V novels (titles all begin with a V) Feather addresses social issues of the times that do not allow members of the lower classes redress for violence done to people or property.

Octavia Morgan supports herself and her aging father by her adventures as a pick-pocket. However at the hanging of two highwayment,
Vanity by Jane Feather

I’ve read this complete series and enjoyed it. If you’re interested in historical romance Ms. Feather is the go to author.

The description of the book I am listing below is from the back jacket of the book. I'm adding it because I believe the one on the Goodreads page does not depict this story.

As the stranger's arms closed around her, Octavia Morgan knew she'd just made the biggest mistake of her life. Picking pockets had seemed the only answer to her desperate plight. Bu

Octavia is a young woman used to a certain standard of life. When her father loses the family fortune and sinks into a deep depression, she does what she must to keep a roof over their head and food on the table. In this case, she becomes a pick-pocket. Unfortunately, she picks the pocket of a notorious highwayman, and he is determined to make her pay. He himself has a secret past, and he is determined to seek retribution for crimes against him. Octavia may be just the partner he needs to gain ...more

Niet het meest romantische boek wat ik ooit gelezen heb , maar de langzaam groeiende liefde en de innerlijke strijd van de hoofdpersonen + de erotische en spannende scenes maken dit boek ondanks het slechte begin zeer de moeite waard .

Not the most romantic book I have ever read , but the slowly groing love and the inner struggle of the H and h + the erotic and tense scene's make this book even though the beginning is nasty a worthy read .

This story actually had me holding back many tears, it was catching and well written with the perfect suspense of characters. It was neither too fast or slow and well paced for a beautiful romantic read!
