Overview

A woman on the run

Beautiful, spirited Jacobin de Chastelux would have been the perfect prize for any man . . . but she never imagined one would win her at a game of cards! When she learns that her dissolute, dastardly uncle and guardian had wagered her virtue—and lost­—she flees. A cunning disguise and her culinary talents land her in the royal kitchen as a chef. All is well until her uncle is poisoned by one of her desserts. Jacobin must escape again . . . to the home of the very man who won her in that infamous game!

Lord Storrington knows nothing of Jacobin's true identity. All he knows is that things are heating up­—and the sparks aren't coming from the stove. A delicious ecstasy tempts the scoundrel and the chef . . . one that can only end with sweet, sweet surrender.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The handsome earl of Storrington gambles to win Lord Candover's nubile niece, Jacobin, in Neville's spicy Regency romance debut. Jacobin de Chastelux dresses up as Jacob Leon and runs away to escape Storrington's suit, winding up as a cook. When she is set upon by thugs, it is Storrington who rescues what he thinks is a strangely attractive boy and hires "him" as his personal pastry chef. Then someone attempts to poison Candover, setting up Jacobin to take the fall. Lust swiftly turns to trust as Jacobin tries to find the poisoner while Storrington struggles with his dying father's hatred of Candover. Neville throws disguises, secrets and vows of vengeance in the way of true love. Though she relies heavily on coincidence, the byplay between the hero and heroine is genuine, lusty and fun. (Mar.)

    You Can't Resist Miranda Neville

    What a joy it is to find another writer who introduces us to smart women and men. Miranda's characters don't spend a lot of time asking themselves the same questions over and over - they recognize their own failings and strengths and use them intelligently. Ms. Neville also helps us live the fantasy of finding the perfect mate. You will feel tension, laugh, shake you head, and enjoy every page.

    This is a fun Regency romantic suspense

    In 1816 London, Anthony the Earl of Storrington wants to court Lord Candover¿s niece, Jacobin de Chastelux, over the objection of his dying father who loathes her uncle. However, Jacobin is not interested in his suit in spite of his being the catch of the season. Instead she runs from her home masquerading as Jacob Leon.<BR/><BR/>When hooligans assault Jacob, Anthony rescues him. Though he is a bit perturbed that he finds the lad attractive, he hires Jacob to serve on his staff as a pastry chef. When someone tries to kill Candover using poison in his food the evidence points towards Jacobin as the culprit. She, as a male, begins to investigate in an amateurish attempt to expose the culprit, but soon finds Anthony helping him, make that her.<BR/><BR/>This is a fun Regency romantic suspense starring a likable delightful duo. The debates between Anthony and Jacobin-Jacob are fun to follow as he begins to see the similarity in his-her pattern. Although happenchance allowed Anthony to be in the right place at the right time to rescue Jacob, fans will not care as they began to fall in love when she was his male chef.<BR/><BR/>Harriet Klausner
