The heir to the Earl of Hargate, Benedict Carsington, Viscount Rathbourne, is the perfect aristocrat. Tall, dark, and handsome, he is known for his impeccable manners and good breeding. Benedict knows all the rules and has no trouble following them--until she enters his life.

Bathsheba Wingate belongs to the rotten branch of the DeLucey family: a notorious lot of liars, frauds, and swindlers. Small wonder her husband's high-born family disowned him. Now widowed, she's determined to give her daughter a stable life and a proper upbringing. Nothing and no one will disrupt Bathsheba's plans--until he enters her life...

Then Bathsheba's hoyden daughter lures Benedict's precocious nephew into a quest for a legendary treasure. To recover the would-be knights errant, Benedict and Bathsheba must embark on a rescue mission that puts them in dangerous, intimate proximity. It's a situation virtually guaranteed to end in mayhem--even scandal!--if anyone else were involved. But Benedict is in perfect control of events. Perfect control, despite his mad desire to break all the rules. Perfect control. Really.

This book! Is so good. (The cover also makes me laugh out loud, it’s so hilariously bad.) I love the prim-and-proper gentleman/scandalous lady trope, and it’s done to spectacularly good effect here. If that is your catnip, you need to read this book (and also Sarah MacLean’s Eleven Scandals to Start to Win a Duke’s Heart, another great example of the trope). Loretta Chase is so, so good at what she does – this is wildly funny, and full of adventure (it’s basically a Regency road trip novel), and yet none of that detracts from the completely satisfying emotional arc of the romance between the two main characters. [insert happy sigh here]
