Looked for this book as it was listed as having a "beta" hero on All About Romance, i.e., a kind a loving hero rather than a growling mess. It was an enjoyable read.

A Regency Lord is coerced into researching the appearances of a ghost at "Prinny's" balls. He doesn't believe in ghosts as he's a man of science. However, after seeing the shost, and chasing it throgh hallways, he finds himslef suddenly locked in a closet with an enchanting, outspoken woman who thinks that maybe the ghost is real and belongs to her mother, who recently died under mysterious circumstances.

I won't say the mystery is complex but the relationship is sweet.

It was a strange story with strange characters. However, I was glad to have read it. I recently read 'Heir to the Duke' and this is a prequel. Ms. Ashford made note of the fact she had written 'The Bargain' earlier, 1997 to be exact, and she thought it would be interesting to tell the other brothers' stories. I would have thought that would have been a given, since they all appeared in 'The Bargain'. They all played some part in the younger brother's (Alan) story. I am glad if finally dawned on her to continue with this family saga.

I was putting off reading this book, mainly because of the cover. I didn't have anything else to read so I picked this book up and boy was I mad I didn't read it when I first received it in the mail. It was extremely good. I'm picky, and this was a very good read.
