Way too slow and I just could not finish it.

Clearly a follow-up in a series. I find the title misleading, it indicates a particular story-line or fairy tale setting which it doesn't live up to.

This is the third book in a series that are all loosely tied together by a villain called Batiste, his search for the Pharoah's Lost Jewel and those that oppose him. Kind of. I haven't yet read the 'first' book, Scandalous Lord, Rebellious Miss but I do that it features Jack's older brother Charles finding love, so it gets to be included!

The Jack of An Improper Aristocrat and the Jack here are two different fellows. At least, Jack shows two (or three) different sides of himself throughout the co

Having bought this book for my teenage daughter, I was sorely disappointed. I expect Harlequin Historicals to be more modest than this one was. It was lacking were the euphemisms for sex and genitalia, which I found to be disappointing. It's not really appropriate for a teen just adventuring into the realm of romance novels.

Additionally, I found this book to be a very dry read. While the premise was good, the author failed to deliver. I guess the Word Muse escaped her. Follow that with some poor

This historical romance was an entertaining story and I really liked the heroine, but her love interest was not very appealing. Jack supposedly is a recluse who hides his bad childhood behind his studies, yet he is also a charming sort of rake. How can he be both? Despite this discrepancy and a few smaller ones in the story, it manages to keep you turning the pages til the happily ever after ending.

This is an enjoyable book. Jack was a third son and his father considered him worthless because he was more interested in antiquities that estate management. Lilly was the only child of a woman who had dedicated her life to worthy causes and expected Lilly to do the same. They were an interesting pair and their road to HEA was paved with Lilly’s good intentions and Jack’s fear of rejection.

Boring, trite and predictable, though I did like the bit about the Evangelical missions. I liked Jack as a hero too, though Lillian just annoyed me. She was too perfect, always was right and I just wanted to slap her.

Predictable and slightly boring; good idea just not presented right. Too long and too many unneeded other characters. And if honest, the title doesn't really suit either. Her writing isn't bad, haven't lost faith.

this book lost sight of the goal which should have been romance but along the way the mystery intertwined in it became more important

USA Today Bestseller Deb Marlowe loves History, England and Men in Boots. Clearly she was destined to write Historical Romance.

A Golden Heart winner and Rita Finalist, Deb grew up in Pennsylvania with her nose in a book. Luckily, she'd read enough romances to recognize the true modern hero she met at a college Halloween party—even though he wore a tuxedo T-shirt instead of breeches and tall boots
