While cleaning her attic, wealthy Lady Evelina Wesley discovers an ancient map that alludes to a buried treasure. Curious, she ventures onto Lord Rotherstone's property in pursuit, despite having already inherited a large sum of money from her uncle. When the Earl of Rotherstone discovers Eveline on his property, instead of being frightened by the large man with the booming voice, Eveline feels a sense of warmth. With An Adventurous Lady (4.5), Valerie King delivers a fun story. The involvement of the community, Rotherstone's reasons for his excessively rude behavior and a hint of danger are all part of what brings Eveline and Rotherstone together. The warm romance that develops is sure to bring a smile to anyone's face. (Nov., 224 pp., $4.99)
