Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she’s been everywhere and seen everything—except London. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head.

Even though she can out-ride, out-shoot, and outsmart any girl

Overview

Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she’s been everywhere and seen everything—except London. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head.

Even though she can out-ride, out-shoot, and outsmart any girl in London society, Linley is destined to be the failure of the season. No one she meets cares about ancient pottery or lost Buddhist texts, and fundraising efforts for future expeditions keep coming up short. If the Talbot-Martin team doesn’t find money soon, they will be out of a job, and Linley will lose everything she holds dear.

Patrick Wolford, Marquess of Kyre (pronounced 'Keer'), is a man who knows his place. Well-connected and respected, he is everything everyone expects him to be, but beneath his façade, he is as neglected and crumbling as the family estate. Now the strain of keeping up appearances is taking its toll. The smart thing would be to marry the heiress nipping at his heels and be done with it, but when he meets Linley Talbot-Martin, who dares to shake up his seemingly proper world, he must choose between the life he’s always known and one he never dared to dream of.

315 pages. Nicely edited. Historical chick lit. Set in London and India in the early 1800s. Free, free standing. Started out really interesting, then evolved into the same ole, same ole. The ending was created in such a way, I thought there might be a sequal, but there does not appear to be one. There is some sex near the end of the book, but it is of the tepid variety, instead of hot, steamy and detailed. There is some violence, but nothing too bad. A woman gets trampled by a horse and an elephant hit by a train. No gory details. This book was okay. It is not my favorite genre. I thought from the over view it would offer something different, but it soon turned into the tried and true. So aggravating. For ages 17 and up. It isn't very lurid and all teenagers that age know about sex. This book is rather boring, so I doubt if many will make it past chapter five. AD

Can a story with a non heroic,somewhat timid guy actually intrigue the reader as he falls for a sweet but small breasted and freckled tom boy? Read and marvel at how the author defies the formula. Surprises in every chapter. Sweet and salty!

Really a 4-1/2 star rating This is a very good find - it has more than 100 pages, and it is free. The story contains many elements, well written, well edited and is interesting in that it has adventure, romance life and death situations and takes place in many countries.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was a very captivating story. I want to know more: does he survive the war, what does she do while he is away? I hope there is sequel.

The story line is refreshing and shows the line between classes prevalent in the time. Enjoyed this book and will be looking forward to reading Book #2.

I enjoyed this book for the most part. The author used interesting back stories for the two main characters which led to some fun, frustrating and interesting situations. Overall, I had trouble putting it down. That is; the beginning and the ending were compelling. I did skip through some of the middle of the story. It seemed sluggish there for a while. I truly liked both Linley and Patrick. A must for caring about what happens to them.

Allyson Jeleyne Does a very nice job in presenting a love story where two completely opposite personalities blend find love, but can not agree that marriage is the best option for either. Jeleyne spends a lot of time setting scenes, describing situations, developing complexities which turn a very good 225-page book into a sometimes boring, yawn-provoking 300 pages of narrative. Overall, I enjoyed reading about the young women of the pre-WWI years traveling the world, learning the archeological skills from her famous father, then meeting the challenges of falling in love (but not really admitting to having done so) with a very settled and sophisticated Londoner ... both families have nobility titles ... neither finds those titles of much value except among the society set, and there is a bitter elongated (200 pages or so) clash between the hero and the heroine's family. It's an enjoyable read and I think most would enjoy the world settings described in this well-written feature .... the deserts of northern Africa (just to set the scene in the first chapters of the book), the society of London, then the wilds of the jungles of northern India, including a Buddhist monastery in the Himalayan mountains. There's much to enjoy about this book ... enjoy

All in all a lovely story. It was refreshing to read something a bit more modern that even mentioned airplanes. Even with lively characters Linley can be so naive that things start leaning toward melodramatic. Even so I put the sequel in my wishlist.
