Charade meets Raiders of the Lost Ark in this Regency-period romantic adventure from the author of Rosehaven. Coulter, renown for off-the-wall plotlines, offers a little of everything?spice, mystery, murder and the search for the Holy Grail?as she tells the story of the Carrington clan. The Carrington brothers are not what they seem; Rohan, famed for his debauchery, is actually quite saintly. His late brother, George, thought to be a scholarly wimp, had been a heartless rake. When commoner Suzannah Hawlworth announces that she is George's widow, her life is threatened by someone who believes she possesses a valuable map. To protect Suzannah and her young daughter, Rohan brings them to his London townhouse and marries her. They soon discover that a locket George had given her contains not only a map, but a key to a cask that holds a magical chalice and the future of humanity. The sudden switch from Jane Austen to Steven Spielberg is disconcerting to say the least, but Coulter's sense of humor and solid writing manage to make it work in the end.

First, let me say that I love Catherine Coulter. There, I feel better about what I am about to say...I could not stand this book! She has never disappointed me before, but I was ready to put this book down and not pick it up again. First, there was a disgusting relationship between the baron and his parents. They were way to interested in the baron's sex life. Well, the dad was dead, so it was just his mom quizzing his lover about her son's bedroom finesse. Ugh! Anyway, I swear the mom would have had sex with her son if it wasn't so wrong and disgusting. I thought the characters were rather flat and undeveloped. I would have liked to have had her spend some of her time on the development of the characters instead of going into explicit detail about the baron's sexual training. Anyway, this book was a definite 2 stars until I read the ending. The ending redeemed the book and earned it a half star increase. I loved the ending. If only the whole book could have been as well written as the ending....

I enjoyed the book. It was a little weird and there is a touch of mystical. The characters were whacky and it's probably not very historically accurate but a fun book nevertheless.

I enjoyed this book, although there were some issues for me.
In the first place, Heroine is one of CC's "doormat women". Sheesh. At least the hero is a decent sort.
And then of course the story was just a bit too farfetched - CC can be really silly sometimes.
All in all though, I anjoyed reading it - it's quick, it's fluff, it's fun.

This is one of my favorite Catherine Coulter books.
From the cover...Rohan Carrington, Baron Mountvale, proud scion of a family renowned for its philandering and charm, is bewildered. He has received a letter stating that his late, younger brother, George, has runied a young lady. But how could this be possible? George was a scholar, a serious young man; without mincing words, he was a prude and a stick. Whereas Rohan enjoys the reputation of being a womanizer, George had the reputation of cold porridge. Enter the ruined young lady, Susannah, who claims she wasn't ruined. She claims she's a Carrington, but George didn't leave her in a fine fettle. She has a three-year-old daughter, very little money, a younger brother, and a wastrel father. In short, she's not in a very fine fettle. She and her daughter are also in danger. When Rohan and Susannah team up, they find themselves on the trail of a legendary treasure somehow connected to MacBeth, eleventh-century king of Scotland-a fantastic legacy of ancient good and evil. There are also cats to be trained for the races, limericks to be sung to the horses, a murder to be solved, a vicar with more secrets than a wizard's wand and a man and a woman who are linked by magic as old as time.

Rohan Carrington, Baron Montvale, discovers that his late younger brother George has ruined a young lady of good family, by marrying her in a fake ceremony. Susannah, her daughter and her younger brother are dependent upon a wastrel father, who gambles every penny he comes across. Susannah believed herself married to Charles, and worries that Rohan may try to take her daughter from her. Rohan convinces Susannah to move to the family estate with her daughter and brother so that she can claim the "inheritance" George left her. So Susannah packs, and moves to Montvale. Once there she is plagued by a burglar and kidnapper who is searching for something George gave her, as well as the local ladies who spread tales about her true relationship with Rohan. Enjoyable and lighthearted.

I have never read this book, it was thrown into a large box of books that I picked up at a freind's house. I am not a large fan of Catherine Coulter so I thought I would put this out there for those who are and would enjoy reading it.
