After ten years of adventure, Colin Smith, the bastard son of a viscount, returns to the place he most despises ––London. But only until he can sell off some of his treasures. He has no use for the stifling rules of the ton, but he’s more than happy to play the game if it gets him what he wants.
Lady Claire, daughter of a marquess, is everything Colin loathes about the ton, but she is determined to win him over. Her life is a catalogue of dances and evening gowns, and thanks to an eidetic memory, she can remember every blasted, boring second of it. A treasure hunt for the Cleopatra Emerald promises adventure, but Claire wants more. If she can convince Colin Smith to take her with him as he travels the world, then she’ll have the life she’s always dreamed of. There’s just one problem, he doesn’t seem to like her much.
But Lady Claire loves a good challenge and the intellectual beauty may be on her way to the grandest adventure of all.

This book is so much fun!! I love the adventure in this story!! I love the characters in this story!!! I love the unlikely romance in this story!!! Basically I love this story!!
Lady Claire Harrisonis the daughter of the Marquis of Chatwell, who is an avid collector of Egyptian artifacts. On behalf of her father Claire attends an exhibition of the very artifacts her father hoards. At the expedition she meets the explorer who uncovered the artifacts and it is love at first sight… at least on her side.
Colin Smith despises London and its’ high society is only good for the money they invest in his expeditions. It’s in the interest of his next expedition that he makes a deal with the Marquis of Chatwell to help his adventurous daughter find a treasure. Little does he know that by the end of this adventure he will have found a true treasure.
Again this book was so much fun to read and it had me laughing out loud quite a few times. I can’t wait to read the next book from Elizabeth Bright to see what new adventure awaits.
