"Benedict Carsington, the Viscount Rathbourne, has the reputation of a perfect gentleman, which in 1821 London society means controlled, haughty and above reproach. By contrast, Bathsheba Wingate is about as disreputable as a Wingate gets, having been born to the notorious DeLucey branch of the family, a "completely untrustworthy" bunch who have "made themselves famous for their scandals." Widowed by a disinherited man, Bathsheba struggles to make ends meet and to provide every opportunity for her strong-willed daughter, Olivia-who, much to her mother's dismay, absconds in search of buried treasure, accompanied by Benedict's nephew and informal ward. Drawn to each other from the moment they meet, Bathsheba and Benedict strive to suppress their desires as they chase the little rascals right into the pristine stronghold of the disapproving Wingates."--Publisher's Weekly.

I agree with the prior comment! Charming, and at times, sort of hilarious. Nice follow-up to "Mr. Impossible".

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]
