With 22 million of her books in print, and 12 consecutive New York Times bestsellers to her credit, Amanda Quick is a phenomenally popular author of historical romances. With This Ring, set in Regency England, sends a beautiful, headstrong woman on a perilous quest for the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite.

Leo Drake, the “Mad Monk of Monkcrest,” is notoriously eccentric and unquestionably reclusive. But he is also a noted antiquities expert, which is why Beatrice Poole has demanded his reluctant assistance.

The freethinking authoress of “horrid novels,” Beatrice is searching for the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, a mythic treasure she suspects played a role in her uncle’s death. Beatrice finds Leo every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels—and she’s convinced he’s the only one who can help her. But after only five minutes in her company, Leo is sure he’s never met a woman more infuriating … and more likely to rescue him from boredom.

Yet the alliance may well prove to be the biggest mistake of their lives, for a villain lurks in London, waiting for the pair to unearth the Forbidden Rings—knowing that when they do, that day will be their last.

    " It was cute. I really enjoyed the humor. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Alice | 2/3/2014

    " 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 Lynne Tull | 1/18/2014

    " I liked this book. It is listed as a Romance, but I was surprised to find that it was more Mystery with Romance taking second billing. For once the hero/heroine recognized the chemistry between them and acted upon it....no taking it slow for them. Each of them knew it was more than lust and didn't debate the issue for the entire book. I can't say any more or I will have to be a "spoiler". I think you'll like the book. I am still working on why this is #1 of the Vanza Series. So far, the only reference to Vanza was a brief mention at the beginning of the book. I have read the series, but can't remember if Beatrice and Leo are mentioned in them or not. I'll have to go back and check it out...I have been known to reread books when I can't remember how they fit together. I'll post my results when I figure it out...promise! "

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

    " 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. "

    " This book stands upover countless rereads. It was the star of the Jayne Ann Krentz bookclub night. Good character developement, nice mystery with a few twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nicole | 8/21/2013

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

    " 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. "

    " Absolutely delightful mystery, set of characters and setting. Very similar to the March/Lake series, but charming nonetheless. "
