Format: Paperback
This book is an excellent read, great fun, amusing dialogue and an interesting story.

The hero, Sebastian, Earl Of Angelstone, has become disenchanted with society and blames his relatives for their treatment of his now dead parents. He has a reputation as a dark and dangerous man.

Prudence Merriweather is a countrified young lady who comes to town with her rather foolish brother. When she discovers her brother is going to fight a duel with the Earl of Angelstone (because her brother wants to keep Angelstone away from Prudence) she decides to beard the lion in his den and persuade him not to fight her brother.

The scene when Prudence and Sebastian meet is very amusing. Somehow she is able to cajole him into apologising and thus defusing the duel. But this isn't the solution that Prudence's brother was hoping for - rather than Angelstone leaving Prudence alone his interest is piqued in her.

Prudence is a typical Amanda Quick heroine - rather singleminded about her hobby of investigating spectral phenomena and rather uninterested in her reputation. When her reputation is seriously jeopardized she finds herself and Angelstone learning to deal with each other. The scenes of domestic not-quite-bliss between them are very amusing with Prudence showing a fishwife side to her character which Sebastian loves.

In form for an Amanda Quick heroine, Prudence also starts poking her nose into others' business and trying to sort them out. Sebastian finds himself trying to protect his cousin from a murder charge and Prudence is working to reconcile him with his family.

Some reviewers haven't liked this book, not finding much to admire in Sebastian.

Format: Paperback
At five and twenty, Prudence Merryweather knew very well the risks a woman took by visiting a gentlemen in the dead of night. But bearding the notorious Earl of Angelstone in his den was the only way to stop him engaging her hot-headed brother in a duel. And that was why she found herself ushered into Sebastian's forbidding presence at three in the morning - and thoroughly kissed before dawn.
What a great book, its got it all. Not to be missed!! This is Amanda Quick at her very best!!

Format: Paperback
This for me, was the first ever encounter with the author. And it was a great hit.
It has, over the years, become one of the load of books I take with my on my travels. It is guaranteed to thrill and entertain me, even after umpteen reads. It is the diversity of the subjects and the attraction of the opposites that make me smile every time I read it.
The curiosity and openness of Prudence attracts the brooding hero, Sebastian. Not only is this Romance, it is also a thriller, it dabbles with the occult and even has humour. What more can you want?
Actually, after this one I've read others from Ms. Quick, and none have enchanted me quite as much!
What a lovely read!
