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.
