Amanda Quick's trademark is a bestselling combination of suspense, passion, and sparkling wit in historical tales alight with intrigue. Now she serves up the most tantalizing novel of her career as an enterprising woman allies herself with a mysterious spy, only to be caught up in a torrid brew of treachery–and temptation.... SLIGHTLY SHADY From the moment the stranger burst into her antiquities shop in Rome, Lavinia Lake knew he was nothing but trouble. He said he was in pursuit of a killer. He swore he was only trying to save her. Yet Lavinia was convinced that Mr. Tobias March was bent instead on destroying her. When the self-described spy hustled her all the way back to England, Lavinia vowed she would find a way to repay him in full. She never dreamed that Mr. March had in fact been telling the truth, that he had been hired to track down a powerful villain. And just as his investigation was heating up, he found it complicated by the most ungovernable, exasperating–and slightly shady–woman he had ever met. Lavinia most certainly never dreamed they would meet again, forced into partnership under shocking circumstances–or that their fiery disputes would spark a sizzling desire as overwhelming as the danger they faced....… (mais)

Lavinie Lakeová živila sebe i svého manžela, zneuznaného básníka, mesmerickou léčbou. Pokračovala v tom i po jeho smrti, dokud ji nepříjemný incident nedonutil, aby se poohlédla po jiném způsobu obživy. Přijala místo společnice u nechvalně známé paní Underwoodové a společně s osiřelou neteří Emelinou odcestovaly do Říma. Zde zažila mnohé horké chvilky, když se večírky začaly zvrhávat v orgie, ale ta nejnepříjemnější nastala, když jejich rozverná velitelka uprchla s krásným hrabětem neznámo kam a Lavinie zůstala opět bez místa, navíc daleko od domova.
Je to však žena, která si ví rady za každé situace. Otevřela si krámek s napodobeninami antických starožitností, aniž však tušila, že se zde tajně schází zločinecká banda. Nezná se proto ohromením a zlostí, když sem jedné noci pronikne jakýsi tajuplný Tobias Marcha a nařídí oběma dámám, aby okamžitě odcestovaly zpět do Londýna.
Brzy se však s Marchem setkává znovu, nad mrtvolou vyděrače. Nakonec se rozhodne přistoupit na jeho návrh a spojit síly v pátrání po deníku komorníka vůdce zločinecké bandy a společně hledat rozuzlení spletitého případu, který má kořeny v daleké minulosti. A oběma sympatickým detektivům nic nebrání v tom, aby pátrání spojili se vzájemným potěšením.

This is undeniably what one must call a "trashy novel" - a murder/mystery romance with a hearty dash of sex and a good deal of talk of current fashions.... but surprisingly modern and 'liberated' in its character portrayals - if not terribly realistic. A very quick read (hence the pseudonym? ( )

Normally, I really enjoy Quick's books, but this one just felt phoned in - the relationships and emotions felt contrived. I had been reading everything she published for awhile and about when this came out, I stopped. I got back into Quick through the Arcane Society novels which I have been really enjoying - this actually felt like a bit of a test run for those. I can't decide if I should continue with the Lake/March novels or not - I may try one more. This makes two disappointing romances in a row from authors I've previously enjoyed (Nora Roberts was the other). I hope whatever I read next is better! ( )

Sharp tongued and shrewish, widow Lavina Lake is not the most appealing of heroines. Her relationship with private investigator Tobias March is prickly and fraught with raised voices from the very beginning when he lays waste to her shop in Rome. Reacquainted in London, the pair are thrown together in the course of a desperate search for a serial killer with the odd habit of modeling wax into threats.

Not my favorite of Quick's characters - Lavina comes off as a rude, pushy woman, and Tobias a bit too long-suffering. ( )

An enterprising woman allies herself with a mysterious spy, only to be caught up in a torrid brew of treachery--and temptation....

From the moment the stranger burst into her antiquities shop in Rome, Lavinia Lake knew he was nothing but trouble. He said he was in pursuit of a killer. He swore he was only trying to save her. Yet Lavinia was convinced that Mr. Jobias March was bent instead on destroying her. When the self described spy hustled her all the way back to England, Lavinia vowed she would find a way to repay him in full. She never dreamed that Mr. March had in fact been telling the truth, that he had been hired to track down a powerful villain. And just as his investigation was heating up, he found it complicated by the most ungovernable, exasperating--and slightly shady--woman he had ever met. Lavinia most certainly never dreamed they would meet again, forced into partnership under shocking circumstances--or that their fiery disputes would spark a sizzling desire as overwhelming as the danger they faced....
