Her heroines are "originals," her humor is witty, and her heroes hold you spellbound--which is why every book Amanda Quick writes is a novel to treasure.  Now, in her fourteenth irresistible historical romance, theNew York Timesbestselling author returns to the world of Regency England, where a bold widow and an enigmatic scholar are drawn by a bewildering mystery into a perilous brew of passion and danger.... Beatrice Poole may be a vicar's daughter, but that doesn't mean she's a stranger to the darker passions.  Indeed, she knows enough about gothic terrors to have carved out a highly successful career penning "horrid novels." But now the talented authoress finds herself in the midst of an ominous adventure that rivals anything she's ever written. Her beloved Uncle Reggie is dead, his house has been ransacked, and Beatrice suspects that he was murdered--all because of his keen interest in a fabled treasure that may not even exist.  Rumors abound that the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, said to give their possessor the most unnatural powers, have surfaced in London.  Yet Beatrice needs more than rumors to uncover the truth.  That's why she's braved the wilds of Devon to seek out a leading authority on antiquities and ancient legends: the famously eccentric, unquestionably reclusive, possibly dangerous Earl of Monkcrest, a man believed to dabble in the supernatural. But bearding the Mad Monk of Monkcrest in his den and dangling the possibility of uncovering a fabulous artifact before him may be the biggest mistake of Beatrice's life.  For suddenly she finds herself joined in an uneasy alliance with a man who is every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels.  Five minutes in her company--that's all it takes for Leo Drake to realize that never has he met a woman more stubborn, more infuriating...or more likely to rescue him from boredom than the alluring Beatrice Poole.  So when the daring widow insists upon haring off after a mythic treasure that has no doubt lured any number of men to their doom, Leo refuses to let her go alone.  Yet keeping Beatrice out of mischief--and in his arms--won't necessarily keep her safe.  For somewhere in the netherworld of London, a villain lurks, waiting for the lovers to unearth the Forbidden Rings--knowing that when they do, that day will be their last.
