The Paid Companion

The Paid Companion  by  Amanda Quick   description:

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.

I am such a sucker for these books… I can’t help I love it when you have 2 people who aren’t looking for love and barely even believe it exist and then they get all mixed up in some scheme and sparks fly that they just can’t help but be attracted to each other… it was wonderful… and of course it’s Quick so you know there’s plenty of scheming, murder, and a little alchemy to keep you on the edge of your seat… i couldn’t put it down… 

I’ve always loved her paranormal Arcane Society novels but she apparently doesn’t need any extra ordinary circumstance to help create an amazing and exciting tale… Elenora is a single woman that the old English society just won’t accept… but St. Merryn is instantly attracted to her and in the need of someone to act as his fiancee he thinks she’ll do in a pinch… of course she’s nosy and wants to get in the way and nothing goes as planned… it’s just too good to pass up…

  1. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of any widgets I could add
    to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to your new updates.


    • I’m glad you’re enjoying my blog… and I’m sorry I really know nothing about twitter… but I hope you figure it out and if I do learn anything I’ll be sure to let you know…
