The first kiss occurred in a dimly lit hallway on the upper floor of Elwin Hastings’s grand house. Louisa never saw it coming. . . . Of course, Anthony Stalbridge couldn’t possibly have had romantic intentions. The kiss was an act of desperation, meant to distract the armed guard who was about to catch the pair in a place they most definitely did not belong. After all, in her dull maroon gown and gold-rimmed spectacles, Louisa Bryce was no man’s idea of an alluring female. Clearly, the only thing a catch like Anthony Stalbridge had in common with a wallflower like Louisa was a passionate interest in the private affairs of Mr. Hastings - a prominent member of Society whom they both suspect of hiding terrible secrets. Now, thrown into each other’s arms by their ruse, Anthony and Louisa are united in their efforts to find the truth. Each has a personal reason for the quest. Months earlier, Anthony’s fiancée threw herself into the Thames - or at least, that is the version whispered in London’s social circles. Anthony believes someone else may have had a hand in her death - and a murderous one at that. Louisa, whose own identity is shrouded in layers of mystery, is convinced that Hastings has a connection to a notorious brothel. When Anthony successfully cracks Hastings’s hidden safe and discovers highly incriminating evidence, it appears that both their instincts were correct. But Hastings is hiding far more than jewels and ledger books. Bringing him to justice will be more perilous than Louisa and Anthony anticipate - and their partnership will be more heated than either expects. For the two share a thrilling attraction to danger, and it is not only Anthony’s curiosity that Louisa arouses.

    " This is the 24th book by Amanda Quick (Jayne Ann Krentz) and subsequently the 24th that I've read. If you like one of her books, you will probably like them all. They all (if memory serves) have a darkly handsome and worldly hero and a slightly irreverent heroine, who are nearly always bespectacled. The chemistry between the two leads is always politely passionate. They get into just enough peril to make for a slightly mysterious plot, and they consistently have surprising (to the heroine) sexual chemistry. The dialog is ceaselessly clever, catchy and, yes, polite. In this story Anthony Stalbridge and Louisa Bryce get into just the right amount of danger to make for that fairytale Quick finish "

    " It's a good quick fun read. The book is a historical romance and follows the forumla boy and girl meet eventually fall in love she has some deep secret she thinks will prevent the marriage. That being said Amanda Quick open the story with a kiss and dash of adventure and keeps up the pace. Her characters were well developed and she keeps you wondering how she is going to acheive the recquired happy ending. I don't stay up late to finish books anymore but I stayed up late for this one.

    " It's a mystery/romance, and for what it is, it's pretty good. I listened to the audio version, and Katherine Kellgren is amazing with accents. I'm no prude, but the sex scenes were somehow both clinical and sappy. Let's just say that the only time I want to hear the word "shaft" is referring to elevators or blaxplotation flicks. And, in an audiobook, it's a bit more difficult to skim past those parts. I liked Iain Pear's "Stone's Fall" better in all respects. "
