New York Times bestselling author Amanda Quick returns with a thrilling new venture into romance and mystery, featuring the most unusual, highly compatible—undeniably combustible—pairing of Tobias March and his mesmerizing partner, Lavinia Lake.

An invitation to a country house party at Beaumont Castle provides a perfect solution to Tobias and Lavinia’s most exasperating challenge: how to escape the chaos of London for a remote, relaxing—and above all, romantic—retreat from prying eyes and wagging tongues. But the lovers’ plans are foiled when their first cozy interlude of the weekend is disrupted by the appearance of a stunning woman from Tobias’s past. Aspasia Gray’s beauty is as haunting as her connection to Tobias. Her long-deceased fiancé was a friend of his—in addition to being an eccentric assassin. The mysterious nature of the bond between Tobias and Aspasia makes Lavinia more than a little uncomfortable. Especially as her first encounter with Aspasia occurs when she finds her in Tobias’s bedchamber…

It seems Aspasia is seeking protection—and solace—after receiving an ominous message that eerily recalls the past. Suddenly the obstacles standing between Tobias and Lavinia appear greater than just a little London gossip—and far more deadly.

When events at the castle suggest someone is imitating the dead killer’s methods, the team of Lake and March fervently pursue the investigation—and each other—as their leads take them from Society’s most elegant haunts—and most discreet hideaways—to London’s shadiest backstreets. As their relationship heats up, so does the intrigue. Soon Lavinia will have to employ all her talents to flummox the scoundrel who so rudely interrupted her rendezvous. And then she and Tobias can get back to more pleasurable affairs.

    " Can not for the life of me remember why I thought reading this might be a good idea. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Pamela | 2/15/2014

    " Great historical romance, and mystery.I love the relationship between Lavinia, and Tobias. The are partners in a detective agency and in love. During a time neither were fashionable. She is a widow, and some allowances are made for her slips in what is fashionable in the ton. I love her go to spirit, and his reactions...will definitely read more books about them. I like Amanda Quick, as an author. Good Read! It is especially fun since it revolves around marriages that the families command, and the couples usually have no say. In comes several well placed murders and everything changes...fun to read! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angelica Taggart | 2/11/2014

    " This was my first of this genre -- Victorian romance mystery ... it was ok, but didn't make me want to read others. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ruth | 1/29/2014

    " good. actually another reread. fun quirky quick. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Maria | 1/22/2014

    " The third and last in the Lavinia Lake/Tobias March series, this one is perhaps my favorite of the three, although they are all terrific. The plot line has the novelty of the four private investigators (helped by their two higher-born friends) pursuing an early version of a "hit man". By now, the characters seem like old friends. Lord Vale and Joan Dove are back, Anthony and Emeline develop further as characters, and Priscilla gets a bigger part (very minor role in the first two). She is joined by a new character, Dominic Hood. But of course, the book centers around Lavinia and Tobias, as they weave and dance towards marriage. Perhaps Ms. Krentz will return to these characters sometime in the future. With any luck their adventures could go on forever . . . a Regency version of Nick and Nora. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kate Smith | 1/20/2014

    " A trilogy is of course a beautiful thing but I can't help wondering if there might have been a potential 4th here, with Priscilla becoming interesting and the addition of Dominic Hood. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Katie | 1/14/2014

    " Really odd. I didn't like this one nearly as much as the other one I read. This one seemed kind of hokey. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Bobbie | 12/24/2013

    " The book in a little difficult to get into - this writer is really not my cup of tea. Some friends have told me to read her; however, for me it is not my style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jessica | 12/22/2013

    " A warm and enjoyable novel. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Moira | 12/5/2013

    " Eh. Not my favorite Amanda Quick by a long shot. I feel as if Mrs Lake and Mr March have been going on a little too long before this book. Good part is, I've decided I get to free up some shelf space by getting rid of this one. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Aspasia | 11/14/2013

    " I read this book because it had my first name in it, but the character Aspasia turned out to be nothin like me. This book is part romance and part mystery. It was ok, but not wonderful. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ruth Kevghas | 10/24/2013

    " My wife was reading this book and I thought I would read along too. It was definitely just okay. Maybe the previous books in the series would have made a difference... "

    " this was an interesting murder mystery/romance novel. i enjoyed reading it and was surprised, but glad, that it focused more on the murder than the romance. it was a good balance. i'm considering reading the other books with the same main characters. "
