I adored this book. Both the lead characters captured my interest because they were both so very fascinating. Prue has a rather unusual hobby of working for clients who believe they have ghosts in their houses and finding a logical explanation for the spectors. Sebastian also solves mysteries as a hobby, albeit ones involving theft and murder and such. In Dangerous these two unusual people are thrown together as a perfect match all around because they can be partners in both marriage and hobbies. I also recommend Surrender by Amanda Quick.
I loved this book!! Prudence has to be one of the best women ever written in a historical romance. She was fearless and smart and I loved her! I loved how they wrote Angelstone - he was able to look past the "outer" looks and really see Prudence.
