Much fun, great romance, teaser ending. I love the archaeology mixed with romance. ( )
This is the second book in the Harrington series. The first book is The Perfect Bride. This story focuses on one of the great- grandchildren, Nate Harrington, of the couple we meet in The Perfect Bride. Nate meets and falls in love with Gabriella, an intelligent, strong-willed, and secretive girl who seeks adventure and creates the oppertunity to put her knowledge of artifacts and history to work. After the death of her brother, a treasure hunter, her life mission is to retrieve a seal that was stolen from him and present it as a valid find in order to restore his name. Her suspects are Nathaniel and his brother Harrington. A twist of fate, (aka Harringtons' mother) forces her children to help Gabriella find this seal in order to keep her family away from scandal and town gossip. Nate holds himself responsible for Gabriella and is instantly impressed with her. This book has great love scences that mark the beginings of a great relationship. Very cute banter and memorable love quotes...especially about kisses. There is murder, suspense, comedy, and the promise of a great follow-up. I can not wait to read the next one. According to Alexander's website, this book is the first in the Harrington's series, but it started with A Perfect Bride a few years ago.
I loved this book... The ending was a cliff hanger though so there must be a sequel. Watch for it!
An amazing book! i was unable to put it down. intresting and thrilling from the first page to the last. 2 thumbs up.
"Even the least sensible woman knew, upon meeting his gaze, that here was a man who was more than he might at first appear, who might steal the heart of even the most resistant woman. But oh, what a lovely theft! Adventurer Nathanial Harrington would never steal another man's discovery. And he'd never be so dishonorable as to tempt an untouched woman into his bed even one as stunningly beautiful as Gabriella Montini. Yet she intrigues him. What is her secret? Nate would do anything to find out. Nathanial is an earl's son but Gabriella knows he's not to be trusted! He's more than just a mere thief of hearts, he's also stolen her brother's good name. Determined to restore his reputation, she'd even masquerade as a destitute orphan and be taken into his family's home. But how can she continue her ruse when she finds herself succumbing to Nathanial's passionate charms?"--Publisher's description.
