Beatrice Poole may be a vicar's daughter, but that doesn't mean she's a stranger to the darker passions. Indeed, she knows enough about gothic terrors to have carved out a highly successful career penning horrid novels. But now the talented authoress finds herself in the midst of an ominous adventure that rivals anything she's ever written.

Her beloved Uncle Reggie is dead, Beatrice suspects that he was murdered - all because of his keen interest in a fabled treasure that may not even exist. Rumors abound that the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, said to give their possessor the most unnatural powers, have surfaced in London. Yet Beatrice needs more than rumors to uncover the truth. That's why she's braved the wilds of Devon to seek out a leading authority on antiquities and ancient legends: The famously eccentric, unquestionably reclusive, possibly dangerous Earl of Monkcrest, a man believed to dabble in the supernatural.

But bearding the Mad Monk of Monkcrest in his den and dangling the possibility of uncovering a fabulous artifact before him may be the biggest mistake of Beatrice's life. For suddenly, she finds herself joined in an uneasy alliance with a man who is every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

    " Amanda Quick has always been entertaining. Mrs. Beatrice Poole (widowed) and Earl Drake (also widowed) face a daunting task to recover the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite and the lost dowry for her niece. It is a "horrid" search through the fogs of London with two well matched protagonists. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Robinah | 1/11/2014

    " it was good vintage JAK. I did not guess who the villain was "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sheila | 1/7/2014

    " A gift as part of a book swap--the kind of book you just bury yourself in. I love Quick's formula for romance. <3 "

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

    " Another great re-read, this one makes references to Vanza and Zamaria without actually highlighting either, so I thoroughly enjoyed following Beatrice and Leo in their search for her uncle's murderer and the missing artifacts. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 12/23/2013

    " Great read by one of my favorite authors. Have actually re-read a couple of times. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 12/14/2013

    " I like how the story matches the story of Mrs. Yorks "The Ruins". However, I think that the story is very predictable. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Connie | 9/9/2013

    " I loved this book. It had everything I like in a book. It had a fun couple, it had some mystery and it had romance. I want to read it again and again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 ♆ BookAddict ~ La Crimson Femme | 8/15/2012

    " Beatrice and Leo are another cute couple. What I liked about this story was all the antiquities interwoven into the plot. I enjoy these sleuthing romance stories where they are trying to "uncover" the dastardly deeds of a mysterious villain. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sonja | 7/30/2012

    " Loved it! Not only a great Regency read, but also a suspense/adventure. Lots of page-turning action and fun. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Becky Black | 8/29/2011

    " I got a bit bored with this after about 200 pages and just sort of skimmed through the rest. It's okay, but wasn't really holding my attention - it might be just me though. I think most lovers of Regency romances would enjoy it. I might try another Amanda Quick another time. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rachel | 4/12/2011

    " This book was great, it had mystery, treasure, murder, and romance. Beatrice and Leo are searching for the truth behind her uncle's death. They are seeking the treasure of the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite. The book made me laugh and kept me entertained the whole way through. "

    " Fun, fast-moving, and humorous. A strong heroine and a an interesting look at the lives of female novelists in 19th century England. I certainly recommend it! "

    " Definitely liked it - can't say why I didn't "really like it" maybe just my state of mind at the time being! Ok, maybe I didn't love the characters, and I couldn't get really into it... "
