Publisher's Summary

Capable, clever Amanda Cavencourt is retuning to England from exotic India, where she has been managing her brother's household. With her, she brings a treasured memento - a beautiful statue, carved in sandalwood - a gift from her friend, a noted Indian princess.

When the statue is snatched from her, Amanda is determined to recover it and discover why the culprit, a dashing, notorious rogue known only as the Falcon, who is renowned for his dangerous skills in political intrigue, would want such an object.

Amanda vows to steal the statue back - but she may end up stealing the Falcon's heart instead! Or maybe it's her heart that's about to be stolen.

Not up to par

A nice little tale, positively no heat. Sweet sparks of warmth in well-painted scenes but it's as if the author never really got her story together. Multiple plots lines/romances lead to, for me, a pat ending and a hitherto hero being way to sappy in the end. overall, not credit worthy. I'm considering asking for a refund due to quite boring story.. Narrator was good.

Entertaining and witty novel!

Any additional comments?

Loretta never disappoint. A journey to India and back to England in this entertaining tale of a an interesting young woman and an even more unusual Crown agent. Very well written, which make Loretta's books so fascinating.
