Lord St. Leger's Find Book Review Summary

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Lord St. Leger's Find

Archeologist Miles Kennestone looks forward to returning to the dig at England's best preserved roman villa, Lowery Park. However, after dueling with his host's two oldest daughters, he warily detects that the youngest child will participate.

Melpomene Lowery loves antiquities, but her father limits her working the field because she is first, and most important, a lady. She debuts in London in two weeks though her preference is to remain at the dig.

When Miles and Mellie meet, sparks fly but not all the fireworks occur because of the obvious attraction between them. He wants her away from the dig while she wants to prove she is as good as an archeologist as smart as any male including this arrogant Lord St. Leger. As they work in close proximity, the fearful of commitment Miles and the ambitious scientist Mellie fall in love. However, he insists she go to London as all good debutantes do though she believes she has made a major find in the field.

Jennifer Malin provides readers with a charming Regency romance starring two lead protagonists who besides love are quite compatible, but both refuse to acknowledge that. Thus, the audience observes a bit of irony as the duo shares their love of the ancient world yet cannot see the love they have for one another. Fans of a warm entertaining historical will find Lord St. Leger's Find fascinating as the archeologist learns what the true treasure is.
