Rebecca will have to take a page from her own book to keep the dashing Rafe Danvers from spoiling her success.

But how does one play hard-to-get with a man one cannot resist?

Rebecca Tate never intended to cause a revolution with her notoriously popular Miss Darby novels, merely to earn enough to support herself and her ailing

It abounds with comic characters and situations: an off beat uncle lately of military service in India, an unknown writer of popular romances, outraged ladies of the ton whose daughters refuse to marry because of the heroine in the novels, an unerring matchmaker, etc. Down-on-his-luck Rafe solves murders to earn a living. His latest one (who gutted Sir Robert and why?) takes him on a detour to the salon of Lady Tottley, whose daughter leads the pack of young marriage refusers. Lady T. promises Rafe a mansion and property if he finds and persuades the author to stop writing the inflammatory novels. Thus he and his assistant, Cochrane find themselves going to Bramley Hollow where Rafe not only discovers the writer, Rebecca Tate, but also eventually stumbles on two more gutted victims. At the heart of the matter is a missing ruby of great value, which carries a curse. Everything's entwined, including Rebecca and Rafe. Eventually the killer is snared, several unlikely lovers pair off, Rebecca and Rafe marry and share the reward for finding the murderer. Honoring a promise to Rebecca's uncle, they sail to India to return the ruby to its temple.

Dashing Rafe Danvers tries to convince the redoubtable Miss Rebecca Tate to give up her writing career. Things of course do not go as planned and passion ensues.

The main characters are cute, but my favorite is the "crazy" uncle. His character had me laughing out loud in a few parts. I understand why Rafe couldn't pay his bills; Rebecca was better at solving problems than he. The typos within the text were so numerous that they were distracting; however, I will read more books by Elizabeth Boyl because I like her storytelling style. I think she is unique!

IT TAKES A HERO IS A NICE READ WITH A TWIST OR TWO. THE ONLY PROBLEM I HAD WAS WHY--WHEN REBECCA WAS LIVING IN A COTTAGE GENEROUSLY LOANED TO THEM FREE BY A RELATIVE--THEY WERE ALWAYS BEING CLOSE TO HAVING NO FOOD AND ALWAYS BEING WITHOUT FUNDS? HER UNCLE WAS A COLONEL AND RECEIVING PENSION AND THE MISS DARBY BOOKS SELLING SO WELL EVEN MEN WERE READING THEM.IT WAS REFRESHING TO READ OF A LORD WITH NO MONEY AT ALL--BEING EVICTED FROM HIS DWELLINGS AND NO FOOD TO EAT AT TIMES--KNOWING IT WOULD SOMEHOW RESOLVE BY THE END OF THER BOOK
