   the perils of pleasure

The Perils of Pleasure, published in January 2008

From Goodreads:

His life is in her hands…

She’s willing to be fearless for a price…but what if the cost is her heart?

A rescued rogue…

Scandal has rocked the city of London. Colin Eversea, a handsome, reckless unapologetic rogue is sentenced to hang for murder and, inconveniently for him, the only witness to the crime disappears. Then again, throughout history, the Everseas have always managed to cheat fate in style: Colin is snatched from the gallows by a beautiful, clever mercenary.

A captivating captor…

Cool-headed, daring Madeleine Greenway is immune to Colin’s vaunted charm. Her mission is not to rescue Colin but to kidnap him, and to be paid handsomely for it. But when it becomes clear that whoever wants Colin alive wants Madeline dead, the two become uneasy allies in a deadly race for truth. Together, they’ll face great danger—and a passion neither can resist.


My Thoughts:

This is the first of the Pennyroyal Green series. I actually haven’t read it yet (Shame! I know!), since I started the series with WHAT I DID FOR A DUKE. One of these days I’m going to read the book that started it all.

Have you read this book? What are your thoughts about it? I’d love to hear from you guys.

  1. Hi, Camille! This is a wonderful feature for TBT! I love Julie Anne Long and only started reading her recently — it’s amazing, isn’t it? How the author has sustained the momentum for this series … it just keeps getting better! (Can’t wait for Lyon and Olivia’s story!)


I would love to read your thoughts on this post.
