Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
When his calling cards are stolen from the printer, the Marquess of Warne thinks it merely odd; but when these same cards begin to reappear in peculiar places, including bouquets sent to former mistresses and the carriage of Susannah Bowen and her beautiful young charge, Juliet Lacy-compliments of a daring young highwayman who demands nothing more than a kiss-Warne begins to realize that he is the victim of no ordinary thief. His search for the truth will bring him not only unexpected answers but unexpected love. In a well-written, captivating Regency that bears more than a passing similarity to Homer's Odyssey, Moore has matched a hard, determined hero with an outwardly demure heroine, provided them with a particularly complex set of histories, set them down in the social whirl of the London season, and then let the story play itself out. Moore has been a Rita finalist and written a number of Regencies, including The Mercenary Major (Avon, 1993). (Moore lives in Mill Valley, California.)
