From the cozy confines of a tiny seaside village to the glittering crush of a fashionable London soiree comes an enthralling tale of a thoroughly mismatched couple poised to discover the rapture of love.
There was no doubt about it. What Miss harriet Pomeroy needed was a man. Someone powerful and clever who could help her rout the unscrupulous thieves who were using her beloved caves to hide their loot. But when Harriet summoned Gideon Westbrook, Viscount St. justin, to her aid, she could not know that she was summoning the devil himself.
Dubbed the Beast of Blackthorne Hall for his scarred face and lecherous past, Gideon was strong and fierce and notoriously menacing. Yet Harriet could not find it in her heart to fear him. For in his tawny gaze she sensed a savage pain she longed to soothe...and a searing passion she yearned to answer. Now, caught up in the beast's clutches, Harriet must find a way to win his heart--and evade the deadly trap of a scheming villain who would see them parted for all time.

Fossil Hunter Harriet Pomeroy summoned Gideon Westbrook, Viscount St. Justin, to help her get rid of a bunch of thieves who were using her cave to store their loot. She is surprised when she meets Gideon. He was dubbed the Beast of Blackthorne Hall for his scarred face and the fact that he dumped his previous fiancee after getting her pregnant. Harriet sees a man who is physically and emotionally wounded and puts her trust in him. Soon one night's indiscretion leads to a hurried wedding and a wonderful romance.

I can't believe this book sat in my TBR pile for over 10 years. What was I waiting for? Both Harriet and Gideon are magnificent characters who were made for each other. She is a tyrannical bluestocking who is perfect to tame the Beast in Gideon. This is a fast paced story with witty dialogue and no stupid misunderstandings. My rating: 5 Stars.

This has become one of my favorite books. The characters were fresh and vivid and the mystery underlying the plot was well presented. I especially liked the heroine, who was smart, had a career finding fossils, and maintained her independence.
