Agatha Loudermilk thinks that the ghost of the only man she has ever loved wants her to return to London with her niece Olivia Banning. Livy has no wish to enter society and find a good match with a titled gentleman. Her mother did this, and so did her beloved aunt with sadly disappointing circumstances. She wants to be happy and a Ton marriage is not the answer. So when her aunt insistent she goes to London not to find a match, but instead to find a ghost. Yes, a ghost her aunt is convinced that Lord Pinkwater wants her there. This sets off a whole series of events that no one could imagine. It's at a ball at the townhouse of Earl of Dugdale that Livy enters the lord's bedroom in search of the elusive ghost when she is caught in a compromising situation with the Earl and with the worst gossips as witnesses to her great fall.
The only answer to this bad situation is now a marriage of convenience with both the groom and bride less than thrilled. But, with the help of some otherworld interference and good old chemistry the worst thing to happen to them will turn out to be the best thing. After all love and romance is a wonderful reward.
Andrew and Olivia are strong characters although the love/hate conflict that the author employed did wear after a time. Still this story as with others by this talented author is populated with some of the most eccentric and entertaining characters out there. This was an entertaining effort that fans of the Regency Romance genre will appreciate.

Aunt Agatha Loudermilk tells her niece Olivia Banning that they should go to London because Lord Pinkwater has asked to see her. Olivia is worried since Pinkwater has been dead for thirty years. Auntie explains they go to talk with Pinkwater's ghost.
In London, Agatha and Olivia attend Andrew's party because that is where her aunt insists Pinkwater waits for her. Olivia sneaks upstairs to search for the ghost, but Andrew catches Olivia in his bedroom. He accuses her of being a thief, but soon they kiss as their aunts and a friend catch them. Andrew and Olivia marry; he seduces her, but stops short of making her his wife. When someone tries to kill Andrew, he learns life is precious so rushes home to make love with his wife; he admits to Olivia that he believes she did not mean to compromise him , but is elated she did even as they work together to stop a wannabe killer.
This superb Regency romantic suspense with a touch of the paranormal closes the Terrible Threesome trilogy with a delightful tale that also brings back characters from A HINT OF SEDUCTION and A DASH OF SCANDAL. The courageous and nurturing heroine will make her a fan favorite while the audience also will scream at Andrew to get it on with her. The ghost and the assassination attempts augment a fine tale though the climax seems too easily resolved.
**** This sweet novel has a charm to it that will win over historical fans who may not particularly like Regencies, for this could be termed a long Regency. Though the hero and heroine's story is the main thing, the side story about the possible ghost adds a great deal of fun as well. ****
