The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes by Cat Sebastian

Two bisexual disasters just doing their worst. The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes by Cat Sebastian.

Cat Sebastian returns to Georgian London with a stunning tale of a reluctant criminal and the thief who cannot help but love her.

Marian Hayes, the Duchess of Clare, just shot her husband. Of course, the evil, murderous man deserved what was coming to him, but now she must flee to the countryside. Unfortunately, the only person she can ask for help is the charismatic criminal who is blackmailing her—and who she may have left tied up a few hours before…

A highwayman, con artist, and all-around cheerful villain, Rob Brooks is no stranger to the wrong side of the law or the right side of anybody’s bed. He never meant to fall for the woman whose secrets he promised to keep for the low price of five hundred pounds, but how could he resist someone who led him on a merry chase all over London, left him tied up in a seedy inn, and then arrived covered in her husband’s blood and in desperate need of his help?

As they flee across the country—stopping to pick pockets, drink to excess, and rescue invalid cats—they discover more true joy and peace than either has felt in ages. But when the truth of Rob’s past catches up to him, they must decide if they are willing to reshape their lives in order to forge a future together.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

The Perfect Crimes of Marian Hayes is the second installment in The Queer Principles of Kit Webb series. This can most certainly be read as a standalone.

Notice: For readers expecting an historical M/M romance that are upset about a M/F paring, this novel features a straight-passing queer couple who are both bisexual.

Freshly widowed (by her own hand), the Duchess of Clare, is being blackmailed by a con artist. With every breath Mariam takes, the reader is waiting for the other shoe to drop (the guillotine blade to drop). She is the most inept of criminals, but so is her blackmailer, Rob.

The blackmail letters begin to feel more like intimate love letters shared between admirers. Forced proximity, where Rob and Marian journey together, with the popular trope of only one bed available, sparks fly with experimentive sexual practices for this genre between a male-female coupling. Crimes are continuously committed, their ineptitude hazardously charming and entertaining.

A warm and humorous, feel-good historical romance between two delightful characters. Cat Sebastian is a go-to for queer historical romance, no matter the gender of the coupling.
