Publisher's Summary

Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure. But now, with three hellion nephews to raise, the absentminded beauty has very little time for research. Which makes it seem all the more serendipitous when a handsome stranger strides into Olympia’s library unannounced and proceeds to set her world to rights....
Tall and dark, with long, windswept black hair, Jared Chillhurst is the embodiment of Olympia’s most exotic dreams…a daring pirate, masquerading in teacher’s garb, whose plundering kisses and traveler’s tales quickly win her heart. Yet all too soon innocent Olympia will discover the enigmatic and wickedly sensual Mr. Chillhurst is no lowly tutor but a future earl with a wealth of secrets – the kind that will lead them both on a perilous quest for a hidden fortune and a love worth more than gold.

Critic Reviews

"A featherlight, warmhearted fantasy with lots besides bedroom frolics going on, and it's all in a modern idiom (only one "mayhap'"). Fans will welcome this perfect little popover of a romance." ( Kirkus Reviews)

Terrible narration...

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I think I should have read the paperback book rather than listening to the story. The narrator just made it impossible to get fully into the story. The dragging voice, ridiculous tone inflections on certain words was almost comical at times. The narrator is really doing a dis-service to the book...

What was most disappointing about Amanda Quick’s story?

The story was light. It's an easy book to read (again insisting on reading it and NOT listening to it due to the terrible narration). I enjoyed the story.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Anne Flosnik?

Anyone but her!!

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

The story is definitely light and easy to read.

Great Read!

Deception has everything required in a great book--love, suspence and likable characters. Anne Flosnik is a talented narrator, having the ability to bring each character to life with recognition.
I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book.
