A seductive thief
Lady’s maid Molly Wilkins is done with thieving—and cheating and stabbing and all the rest of it. She’s determined to keep her hands to herself, so she really shouldn’t be tempted to seduce her employer’s prim and proper companion, Alice. But how can she resist when Alice can’t seem to keep her eyes off Molly?
Finds her own heart
For the first time in her life, Alice Stapleton has absolutely nothing to do. The only thing that seems to occupy her thoughts is a lady’s maid with a sharp tongue and a beautiful mouth. Her determination to know Molly’s secrets has her behaving in ways she never imagined as she begins to fall for the impertinent woman.
Has been stolen
When an unwelcome specter from Alice’s past shows up unexpectedly at a house party, Molly volunteers to help the only way she knows how: with a little bit of mischief.
Alice and Molly’s story–one that is almost as slow burn as a novella could possibly be–made me smile over and over again as I read it. On the surface, the two women couldn’t be more different; as their story continues, though, you discover just how well the two of them truly complement each other. And then you get to the epilogue, which is all kinds of HEA goodness.
Two characters from an earlier series book make a very brief appearance here; this would work fine as a standalone, though, as it really is Alice and Molly’s story. A Little Light Mischief could serve as a perfect intro for newbies to the wonderful world that Ms. Sebastian has created with this series.
