Journal Entry 1 by Aberpeter from Kirkland, Washington USA on Sunday, August 20, 2006
a discarded library book - from inside the book jacket:
"Imogen Waterstone had always prided herself on being a thoroughly independent young woman. But now she needed a man, and not just any man: one with an implicable will and nerves of iron. That's why she invited Matthias Marshall, the infamous Earl of Colchester, to her home in Upper Stickleford. For who better than the legendary explorer to help her lay the perfect trap.

Her scheme was simple, really: She planned to let it be known that when she inherited her uncle's collection of antiquities, she also inherited a map to a fabulous ancient treasure. She was certain that her enemy would risk financial ruin in pursuit of the mythical artifact. And to make doubly sure the scoundrel took the bait, the strong-minded beaty expected Colchester to set himelf up as the ruthless lord's rival and pretend that he was out to seduce Imogen so that he, too, could get his hands on her map.

Yet in all of her plotting, Imogen never anticipated Colchester's violent reaction to her request... or her own electrifying reaction to him. With his powerful build and the swath of silver in his midnight dark hair, Matthias was more than magnificent. And as he entered into her charade, acting our the part of spellbound suitor for all the world to see, Imogen found herself in the thrall of true passion at last.

But to Colchester it was no act. Indeed, to the formidable earl's surprise, he found himself succumbing to the charms of the most amazingly forceful, opinionated, stubborn woman it had ever been his misfortune to meet. Yet just as he decides the time is ripe to reveal his own motives for going along with Imogen's scheme, there emerges from the labyrinth of London society an undreamed-of threat - sinister enough to endanger the one woman a man like Colchester could ever love."

I haven't read a book like this in years... it is at the end of the 2nd chapter when "Before she could reply, he crushed her mouth beneath his own."

Mischief is not at all a quality piece of literature. The storyline was silly and uneventful. The characters were flat and undecisive. I was laughing out loud at the fairy-talesque quality to the book. With that said, the book I read prior to this one was a true story that was intense and stomach-churning. This was a great light and fluffy follow up to balance out the intensity of the last book.

This book has been languishing on Mt.TBR for a long time so I thought I would give it a whirl. An enjoyable enough read. As stated by the previous journaller, it isn't a great piece of literature but it did hold my interest. Not only is it an historical romance but there is also a mystery to be solve. A good book if you are looking for a light read.
