What a wonderful set-up for a romance: Daphne, a plain bluestocking has an incredible crush on Anthony, the Duke, who doesn't even know she's alive. After overhearing Anthony's true feelings about her (or lack thereof), Daphne decides to quit working for him and become her own woman. Anthony then tries to convince her to stay, at first because he doesn't want to lose a good worker and then because he doesn't want to let her go. The set-up is wonderful and the first half zips along. The problem is that the book goes about 75 pages too long. It becomes very repetitive - Daphne plays hard to get to Anthony's wooing over and over. The wooing itself is repetitive and... kind of boring. I would have been much happier if there had been a swifter resolution to all of it. Instead, it just made me lose my interest entirely.

Guess I was a little disappointed in the book. Read the description on the back, thought to take a chance. The book was tedious for the first 200 pages, from crushes to the temptation of rain to just being a teaser from both of the main characters. Then after the grand passion, the flower flirtation, dances and the rumour mill was a little tedious at times. Sorry, just couldn't dance to it.

Daphe is a 24 year old woman who had spent her life working with her archeologist father. When he dies, she is left with almost nothing. Her mother's family does not acknowldge her because her parents eloped and were not a suitable match. She returns to England to work with the Duke of Tremore in her fathers place and the romance begins. She hides behinda prim exterior. They both come from parents who were deeply in love and are afraid to love that deeply themselves. It was an enjoyable read. The characters were likeable and bright. Worth my time.

Prim and plain, Daphne Wade has spent her life traveling with her father around the world, assisting him in the work he was renowned for, restoring ancient antiquities. After her father's death, she was able to secure a position in England with Anthony Courtland, Duke of Tremore, restoring the priceless Roman mosaics and antiquities excavated from a site on his estate. Anthony is quite passionate about the artifacts they are recovering, and works daily at the site himself. The heat often forces him to remove his shirt during his labor. Daphne finds she can't help but spy on him during these times, because he looks like a Greek statue come to life. It's her one guilty pleasure.
She's secretly in love with him, and he doesn't know she's alive beyond her consummate skill at restoration. In his presence, she becomes shy and tongue-tied. Anthony's sister, Viola, comes to visit and befriends Daphne. It doesn't take long for her to realize Daphne's in love with her brother, and she decides to do a little matchmaking. Viola discusses with Anthony her plan to sponsor Daphne for a London season, so she can make social contacts, and meet eligible young men. Anthony claims it's a lost cause, because Daphne has no feminine appeal. Little does he know, she's on the other side of the door during this conversation, and hears his comments. Daphne's pain and anger causes her to emerge from her shell, and Anthony is shocked by the woman he's now beginning to take notice of. He doesn't want to lose her skills for his project, but he comes to realize in trying to keep her employed with him, his thoughts of her go way beyond what he hired her for. In the end, he'll openly pursue, and do anything to convince her to stay with him in an entirely different capacity.

Daphne Wade has been left virtually destitute after her father's untimely death. Luckily, the knowledge she gained by living and working alongside her father, who was a famous and respected antiquarian,has gained her a position working to unearth a Roman villa at the Duke of Tremore's estate. Daphne is immediately dazzled by the Duke's good looks and falls in love with him agaisnt her better judgment. Daphne knows nothing could come out of her hopeless fixation with Anthony but heartbreak but how can she resist him especially when he insists on taking off his shirt and exposing his gorgeous chest. To make matters worse, she is either struck mute or starts stammering wildly whenever he comes near her. The inevitable eventually happens when she overhears the Duke conversing with his sister and comparing her to, among other things, a machine and a stick insect. Daphne is devastated but her spirit is unbroken. She finally regains her senses and hardens her heart agaisnt Anthony and vows to leave her post and start life anew with the help of Anthony's sister Viola, who can see the strong, vivrant woman beneath Daphne's plain exterior. On the other hand, Anthony is flabbergasted when Daphne presents her resignation. He cannot afford to lose her valuable skills when he is so close to realizing his dream of opening a museum displaying his impressive collection of Roman artifacts. Furthermore,Anthony is unused to hearing the word no and refuses to accept the fact that for once in his life he is not getting his way. He begins a concerted campaign to keep Daphne from leaving him. Anthony brings out the heavy artillery and begins to charm and disarm Daphne.Read more ›
