Book Cover.

"Driven to uncover the truth about the mysterious death of the woman he loved, the Duke of Hawkscliffe will go to any lengths to unmask a murderer. Even if it means jeopardising hus reputation by engaging in a scandalous affair with London's most provocative courtesan - the desirable but aloof Bel Hamilton.

Bel has used her intelligence and wit to charm the city's titled gentlemen whilst struggling to put the pieces of her life back together. She needs a protector, so she accepts Hawkscliffe's invitation to become his mistress in name only. He asks nothing of her body, but seeks her help in snaring the same man who shattered her virtue. Together they tempt the unforgiving wrath of Society - until their risky charade turns into a dangerous attraction, and Bel must make a devastating decision that could ruin her last chance at love ....".

This is described as a historical romance set in the Regency period and is the first in the Knights Miscellany series of books by Gaelen Foley.

In fact I read this after the third in the series and have to say that I enjoyed this book a little more than the third but neither are more than a passing diversion for me. This time I found it a little more authentic to the time than book three but again the writing seemed to be very predictable and scripted and little credence was felt for the storyline.

The writing is very stirring and gallops along at a fair pace with incidents occuring fast and furious in the chapters. An extremely light, 'no brain' mystery / thriller / romance punctuated with dramamtic occasions and true 'bodice ripping' descriptions of the love scenes.
