Wealth has its dangers... There are disadvantages to being an heiress, as Eliza Martin knows well. Fortune hunters flock to her, acquaintances lie and pander, and lately, someone is engineering "accidents" to propel her to the altar. But Eliza will not be bullied, and she will get to the bottom of this plot. All she needs is a man to infiltrate her assemblage of suitors and find the culprit. Someone not easily noticed; a proficient dancer, quiet, and even-tempered. Thief-taker Jasper Bond is entirely too large, too handsome, and too dangerous. Who would believe that an intellectual like Eliza would be seduced by a man of action? But the combination of her stubbornness and the mystery makes the case one Jasper can't resist. Client satisfaction is a point of pride and it's his pleasure to prove he's just the man she needs after all...

I loved everything about this novel. Day never makes me regret reading or in this case buying, her novels. Loved the time period and Jasper/Eliza's relationship. 5 stars easily. Happy Reading!

The relationship between Jasper & Eliza is a dream come true. They fulfill each other's needs, as well as each other's desires. The supporting characters play important figures in the development of their attraction to each other. The time period is not my favorite, however the romance is so well written that I enjoyed reading and re-reading this book. This is one of my favorite Sylvia Day stories.

This book had a few interesting parts, but overall thought it was very boring. Historical romance with a little bit of erotica thrown in a few places. Compared to the Crossfire series of Sylvia Day, I thought this was very boring!
