I was a little disappointed with this book. Viscount Chillhurst is a man who looks like a pirate and is descended from a buccaneering family, Olympia Wingfield is a bookish pushy lady and the two are thrown together when a valuable book that Chillhurst has been chasing ends up with the collector, Olympia. Chillhurst masquerades as a family tutor to Olympia's wards in order to get his hands on the book - but he finds he has signed up for more than he bargained for.
This book followed Amanda Quick's usual formula of dark and dashing hero and strongwilled woman with a sprinkling of love and mystery. However, I couldn't find myself liking Olympia that much as she seemed so dense. Jared Chillhurst was a little more appealing, but he also seemed to get very didactic as the book went along.
There are other better Amanda Quick books, but this is still worth reading.
