Overview

While investigating a suspicious death, private inquiry agent Ambrose Wells finds himself on the grounds of Aldwick Castle—and in the midst of utter chaos. The ramshackle castle is in flames—and a beautiful woman and four young girls are taking flight on horseback. It turns out that the strong-minded Miss Concordia Glade and her four bright students are on the run from a notorious London crime lord who’ll stop at nothing to destroy them. Now, their only hope is Ambrose, a confirmed loner with more than his share of secrets—and more than his share of desire for the unconventional teacher. And as Ambrose and Concordia risk everything to bring down a criminal mastermind, they will also be forced to battle something even greater: the steamy passion that threatens their hard-won independence…

I love Amanda Quick aka Jayne Ann Krentz's books! However, I have been disappointed with some of them, but let me tell you this book is not one of them. It caught my attention right from the get go, and it kept me wanting to know more about the four girls! Excellent read and I loved the story line. I wonder if she will write more about the Vanza society? Great read! I totally recommend buying this book! Like me, you won't be disappointed!

Don't mess with the teacher! Hired to provide private instruction for four orphaned girls at a rundown, isolated manor in the English countryside, Miss Concordia Glade begins to suspect the motives of her employers. One explosive escape plan later, Concordia and her charges are under the wing of one Ambrose Wells, a private investigator with a mysterious past. Disguises, danger, and a most unusual romance...

It's not a terrific book, it's not a memorable book, and it's not an enthralling book. To understand the underlying Vanza you have to have read the other Vanza books. The plot is terrific and it could have been a great book but it does really fall short. I don't regret reading it and will probably read it again (it'll be like I never read it!) but I'd say to get this from the library instead of buying it.
