James Durham, Viscount Sanburne, is a beautiful, privileged wastrel, living his life with the sole intention of disgusting his father. So when he acquires an expensive Egyptian artefact, he instantly takes it to show him. Regardless of where he is at the time.

Lydia Boyce may be a spinster and a bluestocking, but she works hard to supply funding for her father's archaeological work in Egypt. So when her vital paper to the Archaeological Institute is interrupted by an inebriated fool, she's only too happy to tell James that his valuable find is a fake.

And this is just the beginning of their encounters as James' anger and Lydia's indignation uncover a serious plot that not only deals in forgeries, but threatens the integrity and reputation of Lydia's whole family.

Along the way, James and Lydia strike sensual sparks off each other as they challenge and constantly reassess each others expectations. Both have been in someway betrayed by their families, yet they cling to their loyalties. But can James sit back and watch another woman self-destruct in her blind loyalty? And can Lydia ever heal James when he refuses to accept the truth and limitations of the past?

Emotionally intense, evocative and exciting, Duran takes the standard tropes of the wastrel and the bluestocking and fills them with life. Her characters are powerfully engaging (I was fully on Lydia's side before I even finished the prologue), fully matched by the elegant, well-researched Victorian setting.

Submerge yourself in her intriguing world, and enjoy another excellent take from a rising star.

When i started reading the book i wasn't sure what to make of the leading characters. Sanbourne who lives his life being useless and annoying his father, then there is Lydia who can be superior in her intelligence. As the book develops we learn the events that shapes them and how being together helps them grow and evolve. By the end i was cheering for their happy ending.
This is my first book by Meredith Duran that i have read and it won't be the last. She has a wonderful lyrical style. The plot is strong, involving counterfeit Egyptian relics and the implication of Lydia's fathers involvement. However the plot doesn't overshadow the romance and the subsequent growth of the characters.
Definitlely a book to be recommended and i look forward to reading her next novel Written on your Skin.

I wasn't sure about this ebook when I got it. I had read a couple of MD books by this stage but nothing really compared to the Duke of Shadows (maybe it was the long separation that had everyone hanging on the edge of their seats...) Anyway I read the brief description and thought the worst so I was pleasantly surprised that I liked the heroine and the hero. As usual MD books are well written, a good plot, great dialogue (with good humour) and some steamy intimate scenes but the heroine was endearing and the rascal hero won over, just like I was won over by this book. Give it a go, it was defintely worth it. If I could I'd give this 4.5 stars really.

I confess to feeling a little bit disapointed with this book although compared to a lot of other historical romances out there, it is far superior to most. I think although the characterization of hero and heroine was complex and believable. The action was a bit lacking. I found the subject of the English's fascination with Egyptian artefacts to be an interesting one, but the whole fake artefact plot was not very exciting and rather hard to follow at points.

Viscount Sanburne is a tortured hero indeed, a rake who takes drugs and drinks to excess and Lydia Boyce is an acknowledged spinster/blue stocking. I do think one of the strengths of this book, despite the stereo typical nature of their characters, was the way their relationship builds and their love for each other is more believable for it.Bound by Your Touch
