Synopsis (Goodreads):
Liars are in need of good allies.

Southampton, 1786: Since being tossed from his ancestral family home at thirteen, and falling in with a swindler, Sebastian has been fighting to preserve life and limb any way he can. While ingratiating himself with Lady Wandsworth and her thousands of pounds, Sebastian meets another roguish charmer, Nathanial, and at his side, the pretty but deadly Anne. Sebastian’s world is abruptly changed as he is introduced to imagination-defying ideas and is snared in an international swindle involving the Queen of France’s diamond necklace.

Sebastian is drawn to Nathanial and his worldly, experienced ways, until Anne reveals the truth about him and the necklace….
Thoughts on Southampton Swindle: After reading Blood Knot and getting all tangled up in Sebastian and Nathanial's lives, it was outstanding seeing the beginning of their relationship. Sure, things got a little rocky there between this book and when they meet Winter, but they started with some quality man-lovin' and I appreciate that.

Frankly, I like the dynamic between these two. Sebastian is so curious and unafraid when Nathanial's secret is revealed. And Nathanial sees something worth getting to know in Sebastian. While things don't always move smoothly for the two of them, they both see what they want and go for it.

A little conning, a few secrets, a woman who is not at all what she seems, and some steamy sexy times. Relationships have started on less.
