Description
From New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick comes a delightful romp filled with breathtaking suspense, dazzling wit, and steamy Victorian passion... The first kiss occurred in a dimly-lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings's grand house. Louisa Bryce never saw it coming. Of course, handsome, wealthy Anthony Stalbridge couldn't possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was merely meant to distract the armed guard about to catch the two unlikely sleuths. After all, the only thing these two interlopers have in common is a passionate interest in uncovering the dastardly secrets of Mr. Hastings—a prominent member of Society whom they suspect of murder. Brought together by their desire for the truth, Anthony and Louisa finally discover the incriminating evidence they're looking for. But bringing Hastings to justice will be more perilous than they anticipate, especially since their thrilling attraction to danger—and, it turns out, to each other—might very well get in the way...

        January 29, 2007
        The suspense begins with the first sentence of this romantic mystery from the pseudonymous Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz uses this pseudonym for her Victorian novels). Gossip spreads fast about the liaison between "unimportant, unfashionable, excessively dull" Louisa Bryce and wealthy, handsome Anthony Stalbridge. In reality, their first kiss was a spur-of-the-moment coverup when the two are caught snooping around Elwin Hastings's mansion. Louisa, an undercover reporter for the sensational newspaper, Flying Intelligencer
        , is investigating Hastings's crooked financial dealings, while Anthony seeks the truth about his fiancée, one of three society women who supposedly committed suicide a year ago. Under the guise of their romance, Louisa and Anthony expose Hastings's many criminal schemes. Their relationship isn't all business, however, and Louisa's profession isn't her only secret. Quick's tightly woven tale allows little room for extraneous subplots—every cracked safe and mysterious prostitute plays an important role. Light humor and playful love scenes temper the more gruesome moments for an alluring combination of foggy nights and steamy afternoons.

        Louisa Bryce works hard at being unnoticed, and with her frumpy clothes and retiring manner, she generally succeeds. But not with Anthony Stalbridge. He knows she's up to something and follows her into the shadowy upper floors of the mansion where they are both attending a ball. An impulsive, passionate embrace is all that saves them from being reported by the guard. It seems they are on the trail of the same man and warily join forces. A daring hero searching for answers, an intrepid journalist heroine with dangerous secrets of her own, and a complex plot involving some of the darker realities of late Victorian society combine with Quick's wicked wit, inviting sensuality, and stellar sense of timing. Another winner for a top writer in the field. Quick ("Second Sight"), a.k.a Jayne Ann Krentz and Jayne Castle, lives in the Seattle area. [See Prepub Alert, "LJ" 1/07.]
