Geologist Gemma Hastings has no interest in pursuing romance—and no patience for Lord Cameron Lisle, an esteemed fossil hunter who has a way of always honing in on her territory. . .annoyingly handsome though he may be. But when a shocking attack puts Gemma in very real danger, she may have to accept Lisle’s offers of protection. Even if that means entering into a dangerous flirtation. . .

Lisle was once amused by Gemma’s dedication to her work. But now that he understands how much he’s underestimated her—a woman whose beauty is matched only by her genius—Lisle is desperate to prove his respect…and prove himself worthy of her. But is he too late? A bitter rival, desperate to steal Gemma’s scientific findings, is still at-large. Can Lisle help uncover the culprit and keep her safe—forever, in his loving arms?


Miss Gemma Hastings despairs of ever being taken seriously as a geologist.  It's a world run by men who never believe a woman to be capable of serious work.  As one of the Beauchamp heiresses she has no need to marry,  and has made up her mind to dedicate her life to serious study.  All the other heiresses have been left a clue by their benefactor to something special for them.  It seems the Lady died before doing the same for Gemma. 
Lord Cameron Lisle is attending a meeting of fossil hunters.  As it is near to his brother's home,  he must visit.  His personal history with his brother's, sister in law is about to cause a lot of tension. 
An exciting murder / mystery to solve in this last book in the series.  You could read any of the books alone but they are better read in order.  Wonderful stories full of intelligent and independent young women and the men who love them. 
I have read and loved all of them. 



Manda Collins spent her teen years wishing she’d been born a couple of centuries earlier, preferably in the English countryside. Time travel being what it is, she resigned herself to life with electricity and indoor plumbing, and read lots of books. An affinity for books led to a graduate degree in English, followed by another in Librarianship. By day, she works as an academic librarian at a small liberal arts college, where she teaches college students how to navigate the tangled world of academic research. A native of coastal Alabama, Manda lives in the house her mother grew up in with two cats, sometimes a dog, sometimes her sister, and always lots of books.
