One night she can't sleep and whilst in the library (or similar room - I forget) quietly sitting in a chair, she spots a cat burglar in the room going after a jewel case in a hidden compartment she's never heard of. Will he spot her? Should she shout for help to stop the burglar? How did the burglar know exactly where to go to f...more

I bought this book a while back and it has been sitting in my tbr pile waiting for me to get around to reading it. I finally picked it up the other day and delved right into it.

I actually really enjoyed this story. Sometimes I'm just in the mood for a "good ole historical romance novel" and this one fit the bill nicely for me. I enjoyed traveling to the exotic location with the characters and being a gentle observer of their lives for a bit.

The characters were fun for me and had good chemistry,...more

Story has it all, from a guy stealing gems, to a women running from her brother in law who wants her as his mistress, to the man being put in prison, to his escape, to the journey to the island where the women went, to killings and D Allingham in love. It has everything. One of her best so far.
Entertaining with some subtle twists on an otherwise old skool theme, but it really fell apart at the end. I wouldn't have bought it at full price but I don't regret the .99c.
Como en la edición que yo tengo aparece la cara de una mujer en la tapa, no tenía ni idea que era una novela histórica, y fue una grata sorpresa porque amo las novelas históricas.
El libro me gustó y me entretuvo. También me sacó muchas sonrisas. Me gustó el cambio de paisaje y me gustaron los personajes. Julian está muy idealizado, como todos los protagonistas de este género, pero bueno, soñar un poco con un hombre como él no hace mal. Y Anna me pareció una buena protagonista femenina. Muchos d...more
**2.5 stars**

Not horrible, but not great either. I love her romantic suspense, but I never read her books back when she wrote historicals. This was a Kindle cheapy.
Anna Traverne is in a fix. She's a penniless widow with a little girl - and the only person offering to help her - her stuffy brother-in-law - expects her to repay his kindness in his bed. Then a criminal breaks into the family home and steals a fortune's worth of emeralds, only to leave the gems with her when he's forced to run for his life. Seizing the opportunity, Anna takes her daughter and a friend and heads to Ceylon, where she once lived with her husband. When the thief shows up demanding...more
It took weeks to struggle through this book by which time I was reminded why I no longer read historical novels. No one seems to be able to re-create a period in history. All they can do is put in a few historical superficialities and then make the characters behave in a twentieth or twenty-first century manner. Unfortunately I thought I was getting a romantic-suspense or a mystery when I bought this book online, so that didn't help.

I put off reading this book for awhile because the reviews on it seemed pretty poor. However, Karen Robards is one of my favorite romance authors, and this is one of only a couple of her books that I hadn't read yet. I thought it was quite good. Not her best work, but a fun and pleasurable read. Even her "bad" books are better than most of the other stuff I've read in this genre.
Books like this really make me wonder if past eras could possibly be so surreptitiously steamy as some authors would like us to believe... I don't quite believe it, and the drama/story isn't enough to make up for the irritating abundance of embarrassing detail.
Once upon a time I had a friend that used to fly through these type of romance novels. They were cheap and more ways then one and so she gave me sacks of them after she was done. So for a while it is all I read because as I said they are cheap and easy.

I read this book first time when I borrowed it from my mother as a preteen. Spent years trying to remember which book I'd read so I could find a copy and re-read it.
This was really a reread, though I'd forgotten it til I started reading it and parts seemed familiar to me. It was just a so-so book for me.

This was a light, quick read. The beginning was laugh out loud funny in a cheesy romance way but overall the book was entertaining.
This one was strange for me, I didnt know a lot of the words because it was set in 1830 something, but it was ok, good suspense.
Thsi book was a gentle book to read. Wasn't as captivating as I thought it would be but it was enjoyable.
It was really hard to finish!! OMG! this book is my first bad romance novel!! :S
this book was just a little to much... too much going on... way too many plot lines
