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?
Seducing the Scientist is the follow up to the first book. It can be read standalone as the book focus is now on Eddison Sweet. The male cousin to the female lead in first book. Eddison came across as a charm young man despite his upbringing and ready to dive into a case. He was handy when they need a bomb or two and his workshop was a treasure of unknown.
It was going to take a woman who could live with the mess and understand how his brain and heart worked to sway him in to a relationship. Ada Templeton was the perfect heroine. She was smart and she knew how to handle herself from the moment , she entered the book.
The beginning of this story , seems similar in some ways to the first book . However the story quick sets out to establish its own identity. . This story is one that is full of adventure as the last book in different ways. These two are like oil and water. Ada is clever as Eddison , she presented as an unusual woman who tastes got her the best of life thanks to her family.
Now she free to do what she likes and this identity is key to this story. She isn’t some pushover waiting for Eddison to charm her with his talents. She ready to fight first and speak later, they make quite the pair as they go about their daily lives trying to solve Ada’s problem.
It was adorable their little moments together and Ada’s self realisation into confident woman. She had the means and her journey reflected this crazy adventure that Eddison was driving force behind. It was never a dull one as Eddison thought on his feet and you couldn’t wait to see who was behind this all.
It was a clever idea, appealing to the times and allowing for some creative flair that worked well, in general.
The only one thing that threw this book a little bit off was the random interjections in the eyes of Meena and Spencer who was present as always. It was unexpected being back in their head so soon and it almost felt like they were competing for attention in some ways . It was unnecessary as the couples were day and night . They each had their own flaws and charms. They both in their ways , would make you swoon and enjoy their stories on their own .
It ended well and I can’t wait to read the third book and see how the League finally tames a certain man .

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?
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…
