What's not to like about AQ? She is always hilarious! But her women are so intelligent and clever that I always identify. Stupid twits bore me--AQ never does!

I was pleasantly surprised. This book was actually a lot better than I thought it would be. I can't wait to read the sequel "I Thee Wed."

From the back cover

Leo Drake, the Mad Monk of Monkcrest, is notoriously eccentric and unquestionably reclusive. But he is also a noted antiquities expert, which is why Beatrice Poole has demanded his reluctant assistance. The freethinking authoress of horrid novel, Beatrice is searching for the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, a mythic treasure she suspects played a role in her uncles death. Beatrice finds Leo every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels-and shes convinced hes the only one who can help her. But after only five minutes in her company, Leo is sure hes never met a woman more infuriatingand more likely to rescue him from boredom. Yet the alliance may well prove to be the biggest mistake of their lives. For a villain lurks in London, waiting for the pair to unearth the Forbidden Rings-knowing that then they do, that day will be their last.
