Manda Collins unearths a delightful duo with this beautiful historical romance. Lord Cameron Lisle and Gemma Hastings are definitely an entertaining couple. Their chemistry is undeniable and I couldn’t wait to read every detail of every interaction. Gemma was an intelligent, lively woman with a natural curiosity and a will of her own. She is determined to follow her mind rather than society’s strict dictates. She is stubborn and strong-willed and utterly endearing in her solid beliefs. Cameron is a man much more clever than it seems at first and while he has as strong a passion for fossil hunting as Gemma he doesn’t belittle her accomplishments. I loved watching him realize that perhaps the life he always thought would be his wouldn’t be satisfying; that he needed more than convention. Watching them explore their newfound attraction and common ground was entertainingly heartwarming. When you add in a solid mystery as well as some laugh out loud moments and a cast of well developed characters you get a truly wonderful tale.
The Story: Gemma Hastings just wants to spend her life doing her own thing. Which she can thanks to a thoughtful inheritance. But when she finds herself in danger Lord Cameron Lisle steps in the help keep her safe. Now if the two of them can stop fighting perhaps they will give in to their attraction and solve a deadly puzzle while they are at it.

But when a shocking attack puts Gemma in very real danger, she may have to accept Lisle’s offers of protection. Even if that means entering into a dangerous flirtation. . .
Lisle was once amused by Gemma’s dedication to her work. But now that he understands how much he’s underestimated her—a woman whose beauty is matched only by her genius—Lisle is desperate to prove his respect…and prove himself worthy of her. But is he too late? A bitter rival, desperate to steal Gemma’s scientific findings, is still at-large. Can Lisle help uncover the culprit and keep her safe—forever, in his loving arms?
