Miss Cassiopeia 'Cassie' Bentbrooke was considered an oddity. At the old age of 27 she was considered to be 'on the shelf', just as she wished to be. Cassie had no interest in marriage at all. Cassie cared for only two things; Liza's well-being (her ward) and continuing her late father's work of astronomy. Every clear night found Cassie on the roof with her father's instruments and journals. When her father's assistant had died Cassie logged all her father's findings for him - IN CODE. ........... Suddenly everything began happening at once. Benjamin, her brother who had been missing several years, returned. The Duke of Devonlee offered a huge sum for her father's journals. (She refused.) The Duke's cousin, Captain Devon Sebastien (a privateer with French ancestry) wanted the journals as well, but would be content for Cassie to read them to him (every single syllable of all three bound journals). And the house had been burglarized repeatedly in attempts to steal the journals! .......... Everyone was looking for some sort of treasure and believed the location to be hidden among the pages of the journals that were filled with only facts about the Heavens. Cassie had to figure out what was really going on, and quickly, as things were beginning to become dangerous. ........ ***** If you are looking for an air-headed heroine whose goal in life is to faint then this book is not for you! Cassie is a level headed and strong willed heroine that I fell in love with quickly and admired throughout the novel. Devon is a sexy hero too, but there were times I just wanted him to open up to Cassie. Luckily, he did not. Here is a book that will intrigue you whether you like gazing at the stars or not. Fast paced and sub-plots that will keep events interesting. Terrific reading here!
