I like many of Ms. Camp's novels, but I have to say that I didn't particularly care for this one. It had a good premise, a mysterious reliquary box with a legendary tale behind it, along with the fact that a murderer is afoot trying to gain it. My issue was the poor romance aspect, along with many unbelievable, breakable rules of the time for a young lady. I found it very hard to believe, even in fiction, that an unmarried woman would hie off to the city of scandal, causing numerous blunders wit ...more

This is a terribly stupid book. Anachronistic, poorly written, boring, with poorly written dialogue, this book is more of a mystery than a romance. The characters are not in the least developed, with all the time going to working out the stupid mystery. I hate mysteries, and I don't buy romances because to read them. And it would have been nice to have more than five pages dedicated to the romance. We don't see them fall in love at all, we just see them chasing this stupid relic around. Argh! Di ...more

3,5 αστεράκια για το ρομάντζο,αλλά ΕΛΕΟΣ με την Ιερή Λειψανοθήκη. Πολύ βαρύ για την περίσταση,και βαρετό επίσης. Φωτιά θα πέσει και θα με κάψει που το λέω,σόρρυ Candace,αλλά ήμαρτον! :Ρ

Having a hard time caring about these characters. The premise of the story is a little too unbelievable. I'm glad this was a library book and not one I paid for.

Kyria Moreland is one of the "unusual" Morelands. She's planning the wedding of her sister Olivia (Mesmerized) when a middle eastern man is killed on the grounds just prior to the wedding. Several groups are out to get the relic the man was carrying and the adventures begin. Cameo appearances by other family members continue the story.

I purchased the first book in this series cheap on a romance sale from Amazon. Since I like to read a complete series I attempted to get the rest of the books from the library. Unfortunately my library didn't have this book, book 2 which interested me the most. So I purchased the ebook on Amazon. I wish I hadn't wasted my money. While book one of this series was better than the usual romance novel this was not. It seemed whenever the author wanted to advance the action she had the "good guys" su ...more
DNF-I gave up around the 40% mark. (view spoiler)
I just could not get into this story as it felt like it was trying too hard.

Well, the crazy Morelands are at it again in a mystery with a little romance smushed all together. Of course, there is a knight in shining armor.

Viihdyttävää perushömppää, jonka parissa sunnuntai meni mukavasti.

Exciting and fun, a mystery and adventure as well as a gorgeous hero and feisty heroine. Loved this book and can't wait to read the next book in this fabulous series.
