Description

An Uncommon Beauty...

Hidden away in rural Devonshire, Phyllida Satterthwaite has always been considered more odd than beautiful. But in London, her oddity has made her a sensation. Far worse, it's caught the eye of the sinister Duke of Moreland--a notorious art collector obsessed with acquiring one-of-a-kind treasures. To escape the duke's clutches, she's going to need a little help.

An Unlikely Hero...

Captain Arthur Heywood's days of heroism are long past. Grievously injured in the Peninsular War, he can no longer walk unaided, let alone shoot a pistol. What use can he possibly be to a damsel in distress? He has nothing left to offer except his good name.

Can a marriage of convenience save Philly from the vengeful duke? Or will life with Arthur put her--and her heart--in more danger than ever?

Reviews

"In her sixth historical romance, Matthews (The Pug Who Bit Napoleon; A Victorian Lady's Guide to Fashion and Beauty) weaves suspense and mystery within an absorbing love story. Readers will be hard put to set this one down before the end. Highly recommended to historical romance and/or mystery buffs and especially animal lovers." -Library Journal, starred review

"The author seamlessly combines a suspenseful tale and a soaring romance, the plot by turns sweetly moving and dramatically stirring...A thoughtfully executed tale that perceptively dramatizes the tension between the demands of love and commerce." -Kirkus Reviews

"A story as beautiful, atmospheric, and arresting as its haunting cover...In its pages are romance, adventure, bravery, and humor...and my absolute favorite--the universal themes of courage, loss, and restoration. I highly recommend this enchanting and thought-provoking novel for your Summer 2019 to-read list." -Austenprose

"Truly a work of art...when it comes to this book, romance and suspense are a match made in heaven." -Bookstr (Five of the Hottest Romance Novels this Side of the Web)

"If all Regency Romances were written as well as 'The Work of Art, ' I would read them all...[Matthews] has a true gift for storytelling." -The Herald-Dispatch
