"Live the Romance. Read Loretta Chase." –Christina Dodd


A charming, traditional Regency romance from New York Times bestselling author, Loretta Chase!

Capable, clever Amanda Cavencourt is retuning to England, from exotic India, where she has been managing her brother's household. With her, she brings a treasured memento -- a beautiful statue, carved in sandalwood -- a gift from her friend, a noted Indian princess. When the statue is snatched from her, Amanda is determined to recover it, and discover why the culprit, a dashing, notorious rogue known only as the Falcon, who is renowned for his dangerous skills in political intrigue, would want such an object. Amanda vows to steal the statue back-- but she may end up stealing the Falcon's heart instead! Or maybe it's her heart that's about to be stolen...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
After a number of years keeping house for her brother in India, Amanda Cavencourt has decided to return to her native England. She receives a sandalwood fertility carving as a going-away gift from Rani Simhi, a notorious Indian princess she has befriended. Amanda soon learns that this carving is coveted by the powerful Lord Headgrave, who bears a grudge against Rani Simhi. Headgrave hires a mysterious, infamous thief named ``the Falcon'' to steal the carving from her. Although the Falcon is successful, clever Amanda manages to find a way to get it back--and steals the Falcon's heart in the bargain. Not quite a Regency, this romance is just a little too melodramatic, and is recommended only for hardcore romance readers.-- Leslie A. Bleil, Western Michigan Univ. Libs., Kalamazoo

Meet the Author

After a heroic attempt to be an English major forever, Loretta Chase stoically accepted her degree but kept on reading and writing. As well as working in academe, she had an enlightening if brief life in retail and a Dickensian six-month experience as a meter maid. In the course of moonlighting as a corporate video scriptwriter, she succumbed to the charm of a producer, who lured her into writing novels -- and marrying him. The union has resulted in what seems like an awful lot of books and quite a few awards, including the Romance Writers of America’s Rita. Heralded as “…the long awaited successor to Georgette Heyer” by Library Journal, Loretta Chase’s historical romance novels have been published all over the world.

Absolutely wonderful. Once out of print now available as an ebook. How could this have ever been allowed to go out of print? It's an engrossing mix of suspense, mystery, and romance with fascinating protagonists. These lovers are complicated, beautiful, and intelligent. So much fun to read about.

Lots of typos from what i presume was an O C R translation of this to an ebook. The plot is slow...epitomized by a seven month boat journey. However I loved that slowness and the building of their powerful devotion to each other. The end was too rushed in my opinion. No sex scenes. Overall Loretta Chase is wonderful...I just wish she didnt have to stick to the 200 page format seemingly required in romance novels.

Painfully slow plot. Characters were poorly developed with no redeeming or entertaining qualities. While the author made some conversations go on forever with no purpose or reason, a bit more description of characters and their surroundings would have been appreciated. Love this author but cannot recommend this book. Editing was beyond awful as well.
