Philip Whitmore, Viscount Greybourne, has been deserted at the altar, and Meredith Chilton-Grizedale, the Matchmaker of Mayfair, is ruined.

His father informs him that is health his failing and he needs to marry to insure he has an heir so Viscount Philip Whitmore leaves his study of Egyptian relics to come home. Meredith Chilton-Grizedale arranges the match of the year between Philip and Lady Sarah Markham. However, Philip informs Sarah of the curse in which she just met the first two steps, one in which a peer¿s beloved died, and step three is death two days after the marriage. Sarah elopes with someone else while his and her fathers blame the matchmaker.

To recoup her shattered reputation, Meredith must find a bride for the most unmarriageable person in the Ton, Philip. As she tries to find the right woman, he works on removing the curse. Soon Meredith and Philip fall in love, but he believes in the curse so nothing can come of their feelings and besides which someone wants him dead.

Though the curse seems at first nonsensical, the story line makes it feel real leading to a fun nineteenth century romance. The story line engages the audience as the lead couple falls in love, but dare not defy the curse. The intrigue of someone trying to kill Philip comes across as genuine vengeance and adds suspense to the tale, but also takes readers away from the prime delightful theme of will she take this man or not?

Although the story lines and characters are well developed and interesting, the Nook e-book version is riddled with typos that make enjoying the story impossible. Especially chapter 9. LOTS OF TYPOS. I hope that the publisher will update the e-version so that I can someday return to it & not hate the book.

Ten years ago Philip Whitmore (a.k.a. Viscount Greybourne), and his father made a deal. Philip would go off to exotic locations and indulge himself in antiquarian studies. He was never more happy than when he was holding dusty relics and learning about the people of past civilizations. Upon learning his father's health was failing, Philip kept his end of the bargain and set sail home to marry the lady chosen for him. Just before sailing, Philip located part of the 'Stone of Tears'. The stone was cursed. Any who read it would lose the one they married within two days. The part with the cure was missing. He could only hope the other piece was among the crates shipped ahead to his warehouse. ..................... Lovely Meredith Chilton-Grizedale was known as 'the Matchmaker of Mayfair'. Philip's father hired Meredith to locate the perfect match for his son. But on the day of the wedding, Lady Sarah did not show. Philip had told Lady Sarah of the curse and gave her the choice as to whether or not to marry. With the wedding canceled, Meredith's business was in ruins! As for Philip, the gossip papers were having a field day with the curse, but claimed that impotence was the real reason for the cancellation. ....................... Meredith, Philip, and their close friends were desperate to locate the missing stone. This was made harder by the fact that someone was out to harm anyone Philip cared for, including his friends and family members. As Meredith and Philip searched, their attraction for each other grew and Meredith fell under the curse. If they did not locate and transcribe the missing piece of stone within two days, she would die. .................... ***** This is one of my favorite authors. In fact, she can not write quickly enough to suit me. I was ecstatic to find this latest book! This story is full of romance, danger, intrigue, and betrayal ... and very highly recommended to all. *****
