Thieves make the best rogues. And the worst heartbreakers.
Philomena Sweet, Victorian London’s finest safecracker, knows it better than most. The worst rogue of them all, dashing jewel thief Spencer Crane, smashed hers long ago.
And now he’s back, fleeing danger from their past. Danger he won’t survive without her help.
She’d love to refuse, but she can’t leave him for dead.
Spencer Crane would sooner steal costume jewelry than ask talented, wickedly bright Meena Sweet for help.
But revenge stalks them both. He needs her artistry. She needs his skills.
Neither needs the desire that sparks to life between them.
While they dodge criminals, carriages, and the occasional flying cabbage, who will protect these two notorious thieves from each other?
SEDUCING THE SCIENTIST by Riley Cole – Releasing November 20
PRE-ORDER SEDUCING THE SCIENTIST
Purchase in print on Amazon
A woman who disdains love collides with a man who lives for passion. Explosions ensue.
Ada Templeton believes in science. She believes in chemical reactions and experimentation and old-fashioned common sense. She’s far too clever to be seduced by a rake like Edison Sweet.
Con artist, liar, self-taught inventor, Edison Sweet, uses his hard won skills to help others. When he’s not saving unfortunates swindled by Victorian London’s criminal classes, he loves women. A great many woman.
Over Ada’s objections, Edison agrees to guard her latest invention from a mastermind willing to kill for it. He never expected to be intrigued by the lovely widow whose body he finds as exciting as her mind.
Their chemistry is impossible to ignore.
And impossible to trust.
Stalked by a brilliant killer, will they concoct a formula powerful enough to mend two broken hearts, or will love elude these two stubborn inventors?
Riley has a long fascination with all things Victorian. She loves the peculiar mix of science, mysticism and innovation that collided in the Victorian Era.
To say nothing of bustles. Bustles and elaborate hats and parasols. Parasols for rain. Parasols for sun. And parasols that morph into swords…of course.
Sadly, Riley has little use for umbrellas in the dry foothills of the Eastern Sierra, but she consoles herself with forest hikes and dips in cool mountain lakes. Besides—no matter where one resides—a proper cuppa never comes amiss.
If you enjoy a little high adventure—and a lot of desire—with your historical romance, delve into Riley’s version of late Victorian London.
Thieves, rogues, and love await…

It’s been awhile since I enjoyed a historical romance. What I loved about this one was the thieving aspect. When I read about this book all I had in my mind was The Thomas Crown Affair and honestly who doesn’t love that??
Meena and Spencer had a romantic tension that built and built. There were so many times I was screaming in my head, GET TOGETHER ALREADY!! However, I loved that it wasn’t an instant romance. There was a history between them and they had to work through different obstacles in the midst of dealing with the villain Ramsey.
The world that Riley Cole created is one that I can’t wait to revisit with the next book in the series. I definitely am not ready to let it go.
