With This Ringby Amanda Quick
Synopses & Reviews
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 novels," Beatrice is searching for the Forbidden Rings of Aphrodite, a mythic treasure she suspects played a role in her uncle's death.Beatrice finds Leo every bit as fascinating as one of the heroes in her novels--and she's convinced he's the only one who can help her.But after only five minutes in her company, Leo is sure he's never met a woman more infuriating...and 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 when they do, that day will be their last....
