Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Commanded by his formidable grandmother to ease his dying grandfather's mind and find the Mallory Heart, an heirloom ruby that has been missing for 50 years, Richard, Viscount Mallory, heads for the London social scene. Surprised on his first night in town when he finds the jewel adorning the bosom of the lovely Lady Isabel Weymouth, Richard has no qualms about surreptitiously reclaiming it. But Isabel is not about to let an aristocratic thief have the brooch that belonged to her grandmother. The resultant alternating thefts, combined with the sparks that sizzle between the stubborn pair, make for a lively, well-written, satisfying romp that will keep readers engaged until the very end. A popular writer of Regency-set historicals (Once a Gentleman), Hern lives in San Francisco. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
