"Once again, the incomparable Quick has whipped up a delectable Regency Romance"(Booklist)—about an ice-cold business agreement that turns into something far more heated.

The Earl of St. Merryn needs a woman. His intentions are purely practical-he simply wants someone sensible and suitably lovely to pose as his betrothed for a few weeks among polite society. He has his own agenda to pursue, and a false fiancée will keep the husband-hunters at bay while he goes about his business. The simplest solution is to hire a paid companion.

Finding the right candidate proves more of a challenge than he expected. But when he encounters Miss Elenora Lodge, the fire in her golden eyes sways him to make a generous offer.

Her sorry financial circumstances-and dreams of a life of independence-convince her to accept. But St. Merryn appears to be hiding a secret or two, and things seem oddly amiss in his gloomy London home. Elenora soon discovers that this lark will be a far more dangerous adventure than she'd been led to believe. And the Earl of St. Merryn will find that the meek and mild companion he'd initially envisioned has become a partner in his quest to catch a killer-and an outspoken belle of the ball who stirs a bothersome passion in his practical heart

That moment when you realize you've read this before, but apparently it was so forgettable that you didn't realize it until you started reading. I used to read the books published under the Quick pseudonym as soon as I found them either at the library or in mmp. And then a couple had 3 books (that...

A lot of friends loved this book but I just could not connect to the couple. You know the way that a lot of people feel about Lillian from Kleypas' It Happened One Autumn (I personally like her)? That's the way I felt about this heroine, she just rubbed me the wrong way. She's great with her take ch...

Jayne Ann Krentz/Amanda Quick/Jayne Castle --- three wonderful series and styles from one single author. I particularly loved this book and have read it many times since it first came out. Now I have it for my Kindle and re-read it last night. It still makes me smile, squirm with the steamy scenes a...

4.5 Book Review- The Paid Companion
I've been wanting to read something by Amanda Quick for some time. I picked up The Paid Companion this week and read it in one go. I started the book at night and couldn't put it down so, I stayed awake all night and finished it. The Paid companion, as the title suggests is a story of a professional...
