Publisher's Summary

Geologist Gemma Hastings has no interest in pursuing romance - and no patience for Lord Cameron Lisle, an esteemed fossil hunter who has a way of always honing in on her territory...annoyingly handsome though he may be. 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?

Contains mature themes.

No Romance..very calculated

I hate when the story starts with the h/h "never wanting to marry". They say this so often I was bored by chapter 3. Then they get caught in a kiss. Only one person ( a friend and the heroine's chaperone) see this, but instead of keeping it quiet, she starts telling people...why?? Can no one in the regency era see 2 people kiss and just keep their mouth shut? So we now have a "pretend betrothal", which then gives the couple an excuse to do more than kiss. Then they pretend to be married, because they get caught again. I guess this couple can't go anywhere where they don't know someone.
Of course now they have to marry for real, and of course the minute the innocent virgin has sex for the first time , she knows everything about intercourse. I liked the part where they talk about ways to avoid pregnancy, but then never practice any of these methods. This is how the book lost my interest, as it's just a lot of talk that does not fit together and the characters act opposite to what they are saying.
There was no real romance, just a lot of getting caught and being forced into situations. A waste of a credit, but at least it's the last in the series.
