It was the most beautiful fungus botanist Sophie Andrews had ever seen. And the man who came with it was a pretty fine specimen, too: tall, handsome and flashing a grin that promised wickedness. Sophie knew the bottle of love potion the roguish peddler tried to push on her was a hoax, but she had no time to argue. One of England's most vicious criminals had kidnapped her f ...more

I very much enjoyed this sweet, and sometimes humorous, historical romance set in England in 1763.

Unlike Archer's other books I have read so far, this book made me drag through it. The plot was minimal and flat up until the last 30 pages or so when the climax made its presence known.

I tried to read it, but it kept frustrating me. Ridiculously predictable.
