This was an historical suspense/romance by the same author a/k/a Heather Graham. I really enjoyed the suspense part of the book, but once the two main characters found each other they were like a couple of rabbits. Luckily this happened toward the end of the book, so most of it was very enjoyable. I usually like this genre, but I'm not sure if I'll be reading any more by this author.
Book Synopsis:"Camille Montgomery is aware of the wicked man's reputation. But as an expert in antiquities, she also knows his family's Egyptian artifacts are the finest in England. The problem is, her wayward stepfather knows this, too - and he's determined to steal them. So when he's caught in the act of robbing the so-called Beast of Carlyle, Camille must swallow her fear and boldly confront the man whose mask is said to hide a face too loathsome to behold.
The Earl of Carlyle has lived in the shadows ever since the suspicious death of his parents. But he's never stopped trying to unravel the mystery behind what he suspects to have been their murder. And now that the lovely Camille has stumbled into his life, he has the perfect pawn for his deadly game of vengeance and deceit. But in the laying his ruthless trap, will he risk losing his own heart?"
