I have now read 3 of this author's books and enjoyed them very much. I like this because the male character had more mischief about him and going his own way. The storylinwas more interesting because of the plots twists.
I could certainly read it again. The bluestocking character had more warmth and caring which worked well with the main male character and his fun traits

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. I think the opposite, I find him a very interesting character and his dry wit appeals to my British sense of humour. The plot to find the baddie to me takes second place beside the struggle for Sebastian to deal with his past events and for Prudence to feel at home with him. It's an enjoyable read and, for me, one of the best of Amanda Quick's novels. It ain't a great scholarly work, historical accuracy is pretty dodgy, but it's light and frothy and has a happy ever after ending.

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!!

Amanda Quick is one of the best historical romance writers I've ever had the pleasure of reading. I've read all of her books, and thought this one was AWESOME! Pru is a terrific heroine who is REAL!!! She is not perfect, but you love her anyway. Sebastian is real, too. That's why I love Amanda Quick! You can relate to her characters in any time frame!

Amanda Quick has done it again, I have read many of her books including one's written uder different alaises but this one is one of her best, Suspense, danger, mystery, romance. It has it all. You will Fall in love with the witty characters. You will feel for the characters. Listen If you haven't ever read Quick I recommend you start with this book, and move on to her others. She needs a favor he'll demand compansation. Thus starts a really sensational Book. Serious and I know books I spend 1/2 my time at the library and the other reading. Try it
