Description

A thief-taker is out to steal the heart of a bluestocking heiress in this sexy Regency romance by the #1 New York Times bestselling author.

London, 1818. There are disadvantages to being an heiress, as Eliza Martin knows well. Fortune hunters corner her, friends become opportunistic, and lately, someone is engineering "accidents" designed to propel her into marriage. But Eliza is too smart to be bullied. To find the culprit, she just needs the right man to infiltrate the nest of suitors—and none comes more highly recommended than thief-taker Jasper Bond.
One look at the devastatingly handsome Jasper and Eliza knows he's the wrong man for the job. No one will believe an intellectual like her could be matched with a man of action like him. But Jasper is determined to change her mind. The intriguing mystery—and the undeniable attraction they share—makes this a case he can't resist. For Jasper, client satisfaction is a point of pride. And it's his pleasure to prove he's just the man Eliza needs.

        December 20, 2010
        Light Regency romance meets a little bit of mystery in this charming if rather implausible tale of Eliza Martin, a practical, intelligent spinster heiress who longs to retire solo to the country but is pressured by her uncle to continue meeting with fortune-hunting suitors. Suspicious that recent mishaps are attempts on her life, she hires attractive thief-taker Jasper Bond to pose as an additional suitor in order to investigate the men around her, unaware of his secret connections to her social circle and his desire to seduce her himself. The plot is mostly put aside to focus on eager public flirtations, private erotic discoveries, and developing true love. Romance readers who like their virgins self-confident and their heroes experienced but not jaded will enjoy Eliza and Jasper's dynamic, and the period feel never falters even when things get steamy.
