Summary

Heath Firestone and his lover Anton Barrett find themselves embroiled in another treasure hunt. Four gems are missing from the golden scepter Heath found in his family’s treasure horde, and legend says if the stones are reset into the scepter, the barer will control the world. 
Justin Pennington is determined to recover them, steal the scepter, and prove the legend true. 
Graeme Hansen, and his boss Delilah, also search for the gems. Heath and Graeme’s paths cross, but not by accident, just after Heath discovers a nasty surprise in Reykjavik. 
Still reeling from his Icelandic adventure and barely back in Paris, Heath and Graeme are kidnapped by Pennington’s henchmen.  With three gems recovered, and the whereabouts of the fourth one known, Justin decides to end the hunt. He gives Heath a choice as Graeme languishes in Pennington Manor’s cellars: surrender the scepter, or forfeit the lives of his last remaining relatives.

    Julia Quinn says that the wonderfully sensuous historical romance novels of New York Times bestseller Gaelen Foley are “always fabulous”—and any reader who feels she needs proof of that should look no further than My Scandalous Viscount. Once again, Gaelen leads us behind the closed doors of Regency London’s mysterious Inferno Club, where the dashing, aristocratic members, having defeated England’s enemies, now face their greatest challenge: marriage! In My Scandalous Viscount, the rogue nobleman of the title is discovered in a compromising position with a ravishing miss—a notorious “busybody,” or rather “lady of information,” as she prefers to be called—and must defend her honor with a wedding proposal. Romance fans simply adore a good “marriage of convenience” story, and My Scandalous Viscount is a great one, filled with kind of wit, surprise, and sensuality that fans of Mary Jo Putney and Amanda Quick will cherish.
