Once Olympia Wingfield had been free to devote all her time to her true passion: the study of ancient legends and long-lost treasure.

Yet all too soon innocent Olympia will discover that the enigmatic and wickedly sensual Mr. Chillhurst is no lowly tutor, but a future earl with a wealth of secrets--the kind that will lead them both on a perilous quest a hidden fortune and a love worth more than gold.

I really enjoyed this book for several reasons, I loved Jerod, he was smart, strong and creative, I enjoyed her nephews, they had a mind of their own. Now for Olivia, she was independent, I like that, but she took logical to a whole new level. It would like being with Mr. Spock. But I would recommend this book.
