When scholarly Miss Ivy Wareham receives word that she's one of four young ladies who have inherited Lady Celeste Beauchamp's estate with a magnificent private library, she packs her trunks straightaway. Unfortunately, Lady Celeste's nephew, the rakish Quill Beauchamp, Marquess of Kerr, is determined to interrupt her studies one way or another . . . Bequeathing Beauchamp House to four bluestockings-no matter how lovely they are to look at-is a travesty, and Quill simply won't have it. But Lady Celeste's death is not quite as straightforward as it first seemed, and if Quill hopes to solve the mystery behind her demise, he'll need Ivy's help. Along the way, he is surprised to learn that bookish Ivy stirs a passion and longing that he has never known. This rogue believes he's finally met his match-but can Quill convince clever, skeptical Ivy that his love is no fiction? Contains mature themes.

"Quill Beauchamp is furious when Ivy Wareham and three other bluestockings are bequeathed the estate of his late aunt to pursue their studies in her private library. Narrator Beverly Crick brings out the characters with flair, delineating their personalities, classes, and ages with her vocal range. She interprets Ivy with a cultured English accent, adding bit of sass when she deals with those who question her intelligence. Crick smoothly takes Regency hero Quill from cold aristocrat to man of action and character. She brings the listener along to the estate and nearby village, transitioning easily to each setting as Ivy and Quill try to solve his aunt's murder while unsuccessfully fighting their attraction.
