“Rebecca Tate never intended to cause a revolution with her notoriously popular Miss Darby novels, merely to earn enough to support herself and her ailing uncle. But now it seems every eligible debutante in London is emulating her spunky heroine and refusing to marry ever! Still, Rebecca’s enjoying her newfound success as Miss Darby’s anonymous creator, and she’s not about to let anyone interfere — not even the rakishly appealing Raphael Danvers.
Having survived the perils of war and espionage, Rafe is less than thrilled by a disgruntled society matron’s wish that he unmask the unknown author and halt the scandalous scribblings. The assignment becomes more attractive however when the trail leads to the enticing Miss Tate. Suddenly the dashing adventurer can’t get enough of the charming troublemaker — and her resorting to some rather Darbyesque trickery to distract him only serves to intensify his desire. But will a rogue’s determined pursuit lead to a happy romantic ending or lead them both into a dangerous intrigue?”
Not Boyle’s best, but definitely a unique and interesting plot line. I found the ending to be a little ho-hum, but generally enjoyed it as a relaxing read.
Not a barn burner, but definitely not a stinker.
