I don't usually write reviews and it is not fair to write them only when they are critical, but this book is the poorest excuse for a story I believe I have ever read. I realize it is difficult to come up with fresh story lines within the parameters set for regency romances, but this story is extremely boring. I was disappointed because St. Raven appeared in Hazard, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Also, the only relation to The Company of Rogues is the mention of Arden's marriage. There was no "helping each other out of a jam" which is what the first few stories were all about. Anyway, I have vented and can only give this 1/2 star.

Cressida has embarked on a dangerous course of action to retrieve the jewels hidden at the house her father lost in a game of cards. Those jewels represent the difference for her family between the workhouse and a simple country life. While riding in a carriage with the noxious Lord Crofton to attend a scandalous party at his house, previously her house, the carriage is robbed by the notorious highwayman, Le Corbeau, who is actually Tristan, Duke of St. Raven. When Tristan sees whom Cressida is with, he kidnaps her to protect her from her escort, but Cressida is desperate to attend the party. Tristan feels obligated to help her in her mission, but they're not able to retrieve the jewels. Then Tristan comes up with yet another plan, and so the country miss and the rake continue their brief time together. Intrigue and adventure are impossible for Cressida--and Beverley's readers--to resist in this sensuous and captivating tale
