Publisher's Summary

Rupert Carsington, fourth son of the Earl of Hargate, is his aristocratic family's favorite disaster. He's irresistibly handsome and unapologetically irresponsible, & trouble follows wherever he goes. Still, Rupert somehow manages to escape entanglement - emotional or other - with maddening grace! But now he's a prisoner in Cairo's most infamous jail and his only chance out is accepting a beautiful widow's dangerous proposal.
Scholar Daphne Pembroke wants him to rescue her brother, kidnapped by a rival seeking a legendary treasure. The partnership will be strictly business: she'll be the brains; he, the brawn. Simple enough in theory. Their journey takes them into danger and adventure. The most disciplined of women and the most reckless of men are about to clash in the most passionately impossible way.

Amusing and entertaining!

I laughed when I saw another reviewer talking about the hero being a dimwit as that is exactly how he intends to project himself when in fact he is plainly nothing of the sort!

I enjoyed the fact that the setting of this book was completely different to any other of this genre I have listened to so far, it made a refreshing change. Also nice to hear the feisty female in this story is smarter than many of the men! Girl power!

As usual the naughty bits aren't disappointing, but I like the fact they fit the story and the story could stand alone without them.

Couldn't get on with the hero he just came across as a dimwit! Just not for me!

Great addition to the Carsington series

I have thoroughly enjoyed each of the 3 - 5 book so far in the Carsington series.
Once again the narrator (Kate Reading) has done a wonderful job.
