I enjoy Amanda Quick books because there is always a mystery as a central part of the story. I also appreciate the fact that the main character is truly an independent woman. FYI, Quick is a pen name for Jayne Ann Krentz.

When her Aunt falls victim to a blackmailer, Iphiginia Bright comes up with a plan. She comes to London posing as the mistress of the Earl of Masters who is out of town and rumored to be dead. She believes that the blackmailer knew both her aunt and the Earl. When the Earl, Marcus Cloud, hears about a mistress he has never met, he travels to London to check her out. Marcus finds Iphiginia beautiful and intriguing; but doesn't believe her wild story. But when a good friend of his is also being blackmailed by the same person, Marcus decides to help Iphiginia catch the culprit.

This older Amanda Quick title hasn't lost any of its charm. It has well developed characters with fun dialogue. The only drawback is the blackmailer is rather easy to pick out. Still I enjoyed this historical romance. My rating: 4.5 Stars.

Another fun regency romance by Amanda Quick. Iphiginia Bright is trying to catch the person responsible for blackmailing her Aunt. To do this, she must move about "in society", so she takes on the persona of the mistress of the notorious Earl of Masters. She believes him to be dead (as was indicated by the blackmailer). Imagine her surprise when he shows up one night at a ball she is attending. He doesn't believe her at first about the blackmailing until the blackmailer targets one of his friends. Then, the two of them decide to work together to expose the blackmailer. Loved the interactions between the characters!

After a year of grand adventures touring the classical ruins of Italy and Greece, Iphiginia Bright returned to England to discover that the real excitement was at home. It seems that her Aunt Zoe has fallen victim to a sinister blackmailer and only Iphiginia can hope to stop the culprit before he can do more harm. Her plan is inspired: Imitating history's most legendary beauties--Cleopatra, Helen of Troy, Aphrodite--the former schoolmistress will remake herself, and descend upon London Society as the dazzling mistress of Marcus Valerius Cloud, the infamous Earl of Masters. Rumors hint that the Earl has disappeared at the blackmailer's hands, and by posing as his unknown mistress, Iphiginia is convinced she can ferret out the villain. Overnight, Iphiginia is transformed into a vision with a host of eager admirers, including one she does not expect -- the Earl of Masters himself, who strides into a shimmering ballroom one evening to cooly reclaim his "mistress". He is everything they say he is... arrogant, attractive, devastatingly seductive, and Iphiginia can't help but be enthralled. But when Marcus agrees to play along with her charade, she doesn't know that the determined earl has plans of his own: to tease and tempt her, until the beautiful deceiver becomes more than his mistress in name only.
