A rake in tarnished armor...

Desdemona Carlisle has spent most of her young life dreaming of a knight in shining armor. When a dashing figure in midnight-black riding a snow-white steed comes to rescue her from the ruffians who have kidnapped her, she believes her destiny has finally arrived. She surrenders herself to the masked stranger's embrace only to discover her rescuer is none other than Harry Braxton, the scoundrel who stole her heart when she was just a girl, adding it to his collection of exotic treasures as if it were just another trinket.

Harry Braxton doesn't want to be any woman's knight-errant. He plays the role of notorious rake to hide the dangerous secret that has kept him from offering Desdemona his own heart. But his tarnished armor soon begins to crumple beneath the irresistible assault of Desdemona's sparkling wit, her dazzling beauty, her teasing and tender touch. As a legendary treasure hunter, he never dreamed he'd be forced to give up the most priceless treasure of all.

When Lord Ravenscroft, Harry's aristocratic cousin, comes courting, Desdemona makes a startling discovery. She might yearn for a hero, but what she really needs is a man—the only man who can fulfill all of her desires...

I bought and read this book in paperback 15 years ago and the pages are bent and worn and curling from reading and rereading this wonderful romance story. I loved everything about the two main characters and I could almost see myself in my mind right along with them and their adventures and finally admitting their love for each other. When my son gave me a nook for Mother's Day among the first purchases was a copy of this same book. I love most of Connie Brockways writing and I am so happy she went back to the historical stories that she so excels at creating. Bravo and cudos on this fantastic tale that does not dim with time.

Great story, charming characters, wonderful dialogue. This is one of my favorites.

Funny, sweet, sensual (but not graphically so), unexpectedly smart and with just the right amount of angst. [On Desdemona's part, her conflicting desire to be a normal English girl and her love of Egypt. On Harry's, his dyslexia, which he spends so much time hiding from Dizzy that she can't believe he might ever love her and which he believes will make her incapable of loving him (and given his childhood, you can understand his fear).] Much more delightful than the cover copy would lead you to expect.

Harry has dyslexia and Desdemona, nicknamed Dizzy, is a child prodigy. Two best friends living in Egypt. Harry loves Dizzy, but she falls for Harry's tall, dark and handsome cousin Blake; but only because she thinks Harry's not interested in her. They tease each other, rescue each other and are just perfect for each other. An adorable story that had me sigh when I finished reading it. Excellent!

This one had potential but got really corny and stupid by the end. There wasn't a whole lot of drama and what there was of it seemed a bit over the top contrived. Not so good.
