Author(s): 

Queen of love and laughter Chase returns with a laugh-out-loud novel destined for the keeper shelf. There’s hardly time to breathe between giggles and guffaws as a delightful cast of characters romp through the countryside to an ancient Scottish castle inhabited by ghosts. The result is perfection.

When young Peregrine Dalmay, Earl of Lisle, went to Egypt, he began a correspondence with Olivia Wingate-Carsington. Now that he’s home Lisle discovers she wasn’t exaggerating her proclivity for trouble. As a descendant of a family known to be swindlers and cheaters, Olivia has a reputation to up-hold — and she does! Her latest debacle puts Lisle right in the middle. His parents want him to oversee the restoration of a Scottish castle and Olivia manipulates things to include her. There are but a few problems: Olivia’s chaperones, ghosts, a possible murder, a hidden treasure and their unexpected and passionate attraction. But for a man used to tomb raiders and a woman adept at making trouble, nothing’s too hard to handle. (AVON, Aug., 380 pp., $7.99)
