Legend says that whomever possesses the St. John talisman ring will find their one true love. Now that the ring rests in the pocket of renowned scoundrel Brandon St. John, the dashing rake must decide whether it is a blessing...or a curse. Never has the irresistible rogue, Brandon St. John, pursued a woman with more fervor--but his ardent suit of Lady Verena Westforth has a different purpose. The delectable blond lovely is indeed enticing, but Brandon suspects her of hiding a valuable missive that he has sworn to recover. With a sensuous kiss and a passionate caress he intends to lower Verena's guard...and then discover where she's hidden "the goods." Without the missive, Verena stands to lose the one thing dearest to her heart. And now an extraordinary man has entered her life...at the worst possible time! Vulnerable though she may be, Verena vows she will not be just another of Brandon's "conquests," even as she aches to melt in his arms. But is he a needed friend or a foe in alluring disguise...and will she be able to prove to him that love is their true destiny?… (més)

This is the second in the Tailsman Ring series, and I still enjoy watching the brother get stuck with the ring. Brandon and Verena were good leads, and I loved her quirky butler, Herberts! As always with this author there was great banter and some laugh aloud parts. I am looking forward to reading the third book.

Great plot and terrific chemistry between the h/h. Perfect combo. The handsome man about town Brandon St. John finally meets his match, albeit reluctantly, in the form of Verena, Lady Wentworth, a widow of dubious reputation in the demimonde. While trying to resist their mutual attraction, they team up to find a mysterious list that was lost somewhere in her house. Danger, mystery and passion abound! I loved it!

Delightful escape! Finally a heroine who goes toe to toe with the typical overbearing Regency. Verena gives Brandon as good as she gets. The story moves briskly with plenty of mystery and lovemaking. The ending feels a bit truncated but it's a minor complaint for such a fun read. ( )

Brandon St. John is a very sensual man. Whenever he looks at me, I get the most delicious shivers right down to my toes, just as if—Oh! Sorry. I forgot I was talking to you.

Miss Liza Pritchard to her fiance, Sir Royce Pemberly, on Bond Street, while shopping for a present for Sir Royce's sister.

St. John,

I must see you. I'll be arriving tomorrow evening. Send me word when you're free. Please. This is very important.

Yours,
Wycham
page 18

It is one of the more unpalatable facts of life that very few women gracing the ballrooms of London possess one-tenth the beauty and with of those found in the most common gaming hell. Which is why I prize my Liza all the more.

Sir Royce Pemberley, trying to cheer up his friend, Mr. Scrope Davies, as that gentleman morosely examined the new crop of eligible females lined up against the wall at Alack's.
