From Publishers Weekly Kane (The Music Box) uses characters from her short story "Yuletide Treasure" for this delightful Regency. Art detective Ashford Thornton, the Earl of Tremlett, is hot on the trail of London's notorious art thief, Franco Baricci. He is keeping close tabs both on Baricci's cohorts and his newly discovered illegitimate daughter, the lovely Lady Noelle Bromleigh. In his efforts to find out more about her father, Ashford plans to get quite a bit closer to Noelle only to realize that Noelle is an innocent in a deadly game. Complications arise as Ashford and Noelle fall in love and she insists on helping him. Well-known for her Regency romances, Kane has created another exciting mystery complete with a spirited heroine, a dashing older hero and plenty of dark secrets. There are lots of good plot twists cleverly woven into Regency mores and styles to keep readers intrigued and entertained. The killer, however, is very predictable.

From Nicknamed "Tempest," Lady Noelle Bromleigh first appeared in Kane's Yuletide Treasure's (1995) as the precocious four-year-old adopted daughter of Earl Eric Bromleigh. Now 18, the spunky and impetuous beauty feels compelled to satisfy her curiosity about her biological sire, Franco Baricci, reputed to be an unscrupulous scoundrel. On the train to Baricci's London art gallery, Noelle meets the charming Earl Ashford Thornton, who is investigating Baricci for art theft. Sharing an unabated sense of adventure, they later hatch a plan to unveil Baricci's crimes, and in the process nurture their blazing passions for each other. But their courtship is fraught with the dangers of unraveling both the art thefts and a murder, and Noelle must use her strength and cunning with a dash of help from Ashford to prevent her own murder. Kane's tale is fast paced, and although historical, the language flows easily. The characters are likable: the women are determined and intelligent, and the men appreciate and encourage them.
