The Saint who Stole my Heart by Stefanie Sloane

Dashiell Matthews, Viscount Carrington, remembers little of Miss Elena Barnes beyond her slight build, mousy character, and bookish ways. Her unavoidable presence at Carrington House would be inconvenient, true, but a woman could hardly prove enough of a distraction to interfere with what was the most important case of Dash’s life—ferreting out the monster who’d murdered a dear friend’s mother many year before.

Dash would, of course, live to regret such an assumption.

As for Elena, a trip to London to retrieve a priceless book is troublesome, though not nearly as much as the feelings the viscount inspires in her. His touch elicits feelings from Elena that she’d only ever read about. Her skin tingles. Lord Hardwicke is as handsome as she remembered—actually, more so as he’d grown into his frame in a rather attractive manner—and as dim as a ha’penny tallow. Or is he? The more time Elena spends with the man, the greater her suspicions grow regarding his intellect and just what he might be up to as they’re thrown together in the search for an individual known only as the Bishop.

Can true love save the day?

One of my favorite genres of romance is Historical. It gives you a sense of how back in those times one "dated" or in their words courted. Especially in Europe society, particularly in London. It seems then that there were more rules then then there are now. Makes you wonder if we in the 21st century would even be able to handle that time of lifestyle. Now you add a little danger into a love story and you have the perfect mix. Stefanie did just that in her 4th installment of the Regency Rogues....I will admit, I have yet to read the first 3 but believe me I will be picking up those books very soon, and also looking forward to continuing with this series.
