Publisher's Summary

From the moment he burst into her antiquities shop in Rome, Lavinia Lake knew the stranger was nothing but trouble. He said he was in pursuit of a killer. He swore he was only trying to save her. Yet no matter what he claimed, Lavinia was convinced that Mr. Tobias March was bent instead on destroying her. And when the self-described spy hustled her and her niece out of the shop and back to England, Lavinia could only hope that one day she would find a way to repay Mr. March in full. But Lavinia never imagined the shocking circumstances under which they would meet again...or that soon he would become her partner in a quest that would grow more deadly - and more compelling - with each passing day.
In the business of making private inquiries, Tobias March had been hired to track down a powerful villain who even now was intent on assuming control of a vast criminal organization. Yet in his search he had found nothing but one dead end - and one dead body - after another.
An then, just as his investigation was heating up once more, he found his mission and his life complicated by the most ungovernable, unpredictable, exasperating woman he had ever met.
Faced with a tangled web of deceit and danger, Tobias had no choice but to form a partnership with Lavinia, a lady whose past could only be described as slightly shady. Yet when he persuaded her to become his associate, neither Tobias nor Lavinia realized that their heated disputes would spark a sizzling desire - or that the deeper they kept digging for the truth, the deeper they were digging their own graves...

If you read the other 2 books (like me) and decided to go back to the beginning to "catch up", don't! The other books in this series are unabridged, for whatever reason this one is abridged and badly. The story hop, skips and jumps with seemingly little reason. I swear this recording even starts in the middle of a sentence! I'm going to get the book out of the library, I'm sure it's a fine book - just don't waste a credit on this pitiful abridgement!

Not fantasy or paranormal

Amanda Quick shows up as a fantasy writer but this series is not one. It is about an opinionated male and female and the closest link to paranormal or fantasy is in the mention and not so sucessful use of hypnotism.

As a historical detective romance it is not a bad tale and i would recommend it to those who like this type of story and at the price its worth a read even if you like fictional historical novels or just romance

Slightly boring

Quite honestly I could not stay with this audiobook. The narrator's slipshod, slightly nasal delivery and mispronounciations were just too annoying.
