Publisher's Summary

Grieving after the death of his younger brother, Hugh Castle, the Earl of Monnow, finds evidence to suggest it was not an accident, but a failed attempt to kill him. He vows revenge, planning to take advantage of the rumor that he is also dead to uncover the murderer.

But Hugh doesn't count on meeting another desperate adventurer, Helen Archer. She has lost the fabled Peckham Necklace at Hugh's home, Ormsby, and risks censure if she doesn't find it. So together, Helen and Hugh hatch the perfect plan. They will masquerade as servants to gain access to Hugh's grand house and accomplish their missions in secret.

Unfortunately, it is more limiting to work as servants than they thought, and their plans soon go awry. Increasingly attracted to Helen, Hugh finds it difficult to protect her from the unknown danger stalking the grand halls of Ormsby, and ultimately, he must decide if his heart's desire is truly revenge, or love.

    "Nice entry in the Regency Romance genre"

    I discovered Georgette Heyer in the eighth grade and have been looking for tales like hers ever since. Sadly, most Regency novels are pretty awful. This on the other hand is really quite good. The situation is pretty far-fetched but let's be honest - we don't read this stuff for realism. Never mind, the heroine and her earl find reason to masquerade as servants and of course complications ensue. The characters are likeable, the plotting is well done, if fairly predictable, and everything wraps up neatly. The dialogue is a bit flat, lacking the wit of the best Regencies.

    The narration is simply "okay", somewhat lifeless. I considered only two stars but bumped it up to three because ther is nothing grating about it to annoy me the way some readers of romances do. Not syrupy or overly "breathy", and none of the men sound like they are about to shape-shift into something vile.

    I'll probably get more by this author for when I'm in the mood for something pleasant and not particularly challenging.
