I enjoyed this 4th book in the Dennehy Sisters series. It was a good story about the spoiled sister. 1-Wild Sweet Ecstasy 2-Rogue's Mistress 3-Forever In My Heart 4-Always In My Dreams 5-Only In My Arms This is another enjoyable read from Jo Goodman. If you liked her other books about the Dennehy sisters, you will surely enjoy this read, as well. However, Skye is probably the least likable of the 5 sisters (as she is slightly spoiled and self-centered) and this story may be the most difficult to follow. Unlike the others, this one does not take place in the West. Instead, it happens in an old mansion in New England, where Skye's father has sent her to do some harmless research/investigating to satiate her adventurous spirit. Instead, she finds real danger and a dangerous, enigmatic hero to boot. The mystery moves at a quick pace. In the end, this Dennehy sister -- like the others -- finds the man of her heart and spirit.

New York Financier Jay Mac Worth has asked his youngest daughter, Skye Dennehy, to spy on a reclusive Inventor he has bankrolled. In order to get into the house, Skye answers Jonathan Parnell's advertisement for a housekeeper. While giving the maids their orders and inventorying supplies, Skye tries to get a peak at Parnell's latest invention. But to do that she must get rid of Parnell's assistant, Walker Caine, who is keeping close tabs on the new housekeeper.

Skye is the youngest Dennehy sister. She has no definite plans for her future except she wants adventure. Walker Caine doesn't trust his employer and wants to keep Skye out of trouble. Keeping her out of the inventor's office is the first step since it is off limits to everyone except Parnell. This is the fourth book in Goodman's Dennehy Sisters series and another solid historical romance. My rating: 4 Stars.

Of the stories in this series, this is my least-favorite. Skye doesnt want to return to college; she wants adventure. Her father, Jay Mac, sends her to investigate the situation with the invention he is supporting with his money. To do that, Skye must become the head housekeeper; this is no small trick for a pampered princess.

This story does not move to the West as the other Dennehy stories; Skye must be hired as the housekeeper in a mansion in New England. The spying moves along quickly; Skye is in the house only a week before she is fired.

She meets Walker Caine, the protector of the inventor Jonathan Parnell (the man Jay Mac wants Skye to study). Skye is soon attracted to a man she doesnt understand (Walker); however, Walker thinks Skye needs a keeper (shes reckless and impulsive). Caine also recognizes that he and Skye are very much alike.

Instead of a simple investigation, Skye finds herself in the middle of a dangerous situation.
