Sullivan Waring is the son of a nobleman.  The fact that he is illegitimate weighs heavily on his mind, especially since he is treated dastardly by the ton.  After coming home a hero from the wars, Sully is becoming highly prized as a horse breeder and trainer.  What the ton doesn’t know is that he is the Mayfair Marauder.  By day he breeds horses, by night he goes into the home of some of the richest of society and steals back items that were important to him.  It is when he steals from the home of Lady Isabel Chalsey that his life changes.

Isabel Chalsey can’t believe that the blackguard known as the Mayfair Marauder had the audacity to kiss her while stealing from her home.  Coming upon the masked man in her kitchen, she was startled and intrigued.  When she comes face to face the next day with Sullivan Waring, she has no doubts as to whom her midnight thief is and she plans to milk her knowledge for everything it is worth.

Suzanne Enoch has a prize on her hands with After the Kiss.  Sully’s characterization made me ache for the way he was treated and then feel proud for the way he overcame society’s expectations and became the man I knew he was inside.  Isabel made me smile more than once at her ability to keep Sully on his toes and his lips busy.  Fans of beguiling historical romances will love After the Kiss.  I know I did.
