  • I've read this book twice, and that indicates I enjoyed it. The story is 18th century England. Hastings Adair is accused of ruining a young woman's reputation and sets out to prove his innocence. Of course he falls in love along the way.with the victim's cousin.


  • patricia veryan - I guess she is just a book by book author. Maybe I'll avoid the “Riddle” books. She just writes to a more mature audience than me. I know she isn’t awful, but she has enough words thrown in here and there that she makes me uncomfortable. And I don’t read to be uncomfortable…not in a hesitant way.


  • So it was about the same as the Riddle of Alabaster Royal. Of course a different mystery. Its a period romance just a little longer than necessary. I found that I enjoyed it, but skimmed alot. I'm not sure if I will read another Patricia Veryan.


  • Another fun read that has some of the same characters as Alabaster Royal. I guess I missed the 2nd book in the series. I'm not sure if I'll get it. These are light and action-filled, but not the great humor that Georgette Heyer has in the same sort of book.
