RT Rating

Fans of the television show House will enjoy this offering by Bryan. Crispin Hawke has the same misogynistic personality as the TV character, Greg House. His superciliousness is contrasted with the heroine’s failure to be awed by his genius. Like House, there are mysteries to be solved and the disparate personalities of the two main characters provide humor and sexual tension to this wickedly enjoyable novel. The affair between Grace’s maid, Colette, and Crispin’s servant, Wyckham, is a hilarious subplot to the main story.

Grace Makepeace is newly arrived from Boston to enjoy her first London season. Her mother insists that Grace have her hands sculpted by the world-famous artist, Crispin Hawke, in order to be fully accepted by the ton. Crispin’s arrogance doesn’t intimidate Grace and sparks fly as the two begin working together. (LEISURE, Jun., 304 pp., $6.99)
