Finn Dalton is the black sheep of his privileged family—because he’s always trying to do the right thing. But do good guys let bad girls go free? Ask British heiress Felicity Trent. Finn should have called the cops when he caught Felicity with a fortune in stolen jewels. But after the hot night they’d shared, betraying her meant he’d never have her again. Two years later, he discovers Felicity scantily clad and handcuffed to a bed in a posh Manhattan hotel room. Finn has three choices. Turn Felicity in. Turn her loose. Or turn her on…

Finn Dalton is bad boy personified. Felicity Trent should know; she’s a bad girl herself. But for Felicity, life as a jewel thief is almost as seductive as Finn is—and that’s dangerous. Because for a girl like her one night is all she needs to get what she wants, anything more means trouble. Now, with both of them after the same thing—the rarest of treasures—who gets there first might be the last thing they want…

Finn and Felicity have a long history together but that doesn’t mean that they don’t want each other. Can these two find love when they always seem to be on opposite sides?

Finn Dalton is a billionaire who heads Trinity Inc., a privately owned company that takes on cases that the government or authorities will not consider. Along with his childhood friends and partners, Mac and Rafe, they use whatever means necessary to accomplish their goals. Finn’s latest assignment is to retrieve a priceless necklace for a client. However, there is a slight problem. His former lover and master thief, Felicity Trent, is also after the same piece. Though on opposite sides, they decide to work together to find the necklace but there are more parties interested in finding it first. The danger and intrigue seems to only fuel the attraction that never seemed to go away even after all these years. Will Finn and Felicity be able to find love once the danger is over or will their work keep them apart?

THE BLACK SHEEP AND THE ENGLISH ROSE is the last book in the Unholy Trinity series and it starts off with the most sensual scene I’ve read in a while. I could instantly see the chemistry between Finn and Felicity that a simple touch sent chills up my spine. The story had all the political intrigue, mystery and double-crossing of a spy novel with enough romance to satisfy any romantic. Ms. Kauffman kept me guessing because each character was more than what they seemed. Although I enjoyed the book, I wish I could have read more about what happened after the mystery behind the necklace was unraveled. However, of all the BLACK SHEEP novels, I definitely think this one is the best. Finn’s story is an excellent finale to the Unholy Trinity series and THE BLACK SHEEP AND THE ENGLISH ROSE will not disappoint!
