“It is not just a ruby, as you say. It is large as a quail’s egg, still untouched and unpolished. And it is rumored to either bless or curse whomever possesses it.”

Camille Iverness can take care of herself. She’s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop on Blinkett Street. But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille has no choice but to accept help from the mysterious stranger who came to her aid.

Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall. As a second son, he was content working as a village apothecary. But when his brother’s death made him heir just as his father’s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession—a ruby called the Bevoy—can save the family from ruin. But the gem has disappeared. And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop—and the beautiful shop girl who may or may not be the answer to his questions.

Curious circumstance throws them together, and an intricate dance of need and suspicion leads the couple from the seedy backwaters of London to the elite neighborhoods of the wealthy to the lush, green Surrey countryside—all in the pursuit of a blood-red gem that collectors will sacrifice anything to possess.

Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear. But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, each will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.

Re: The Curiosity Keeper

To be honest with you, when I grab a book, I don't look at
the spine to see if it's a "Regency" book or not. I just
grab it because of it's content. This year I decided to go
"all out" and read all genres across the spectrum, since I
became bored reading the same thing over and over. So far I
have found it not only eye-opening, but a wonderful
experience!! As for a Regency title, I couldn't give you
one, but I can assure you that there will be some in my mix
of books that will be read!! I'm also looking forward to
reading The Curiosity Keeper. I love the cover, too!!
Congratulations on your latest book!!

I like historical and so Regency would be included. I will
add your book to my TBR list. I could not give you any name
now.
By the way, I am taking care of my granddaughter's Golden as
he hates the fireworks and we live way out. He is sleeping
now but all wet because he loves to run and comes back wet.
I think he finds a swamp somewhere or the lake.

I love historical Regency novels and this one is definitely on my TBR. The other one that is on my list is Lady Maybe by Julie Klassen. I love both of these authors because they include some intrigue and mystery in their books. By the way, the cover on this book is beautiful!!

I love Regencies, I just purchased Always Have Hope by
Maureen Driscoll and that's my next read.

Regencies are captivating and memorable. Only a Promise by
Mary Balogh.

I love reading historicals so there are plenty of
Regencies in my TBR. I'm currently reading Vanessa Kelly's
Renegade Royals Series!

So funny! I've been working my way through Georgette Heyer's
audio books. And the really cool thing is that they are
absolutely timeless. They are still as delightful now as they
ever were! I just finished These Old Shades and Devil's Cub
this week.

Marcia Berbeza 11:15pm July 6, 2015)

Any regency that comes my way, I'll read it. I love the feeling of "period" books.
(
Nancy Reynolds 9:45am July 7, 2015)

Love and Let Spy by Shana Galen is next on my reading list.
(
Janie McGaugh 11:25am July 7, 2015)

I'm not sure what novel I will read next--maybe I'll be
lucky and win this one.

Love the Regency books .In the stories I read I can see the castles ,the gardens ,the forest ,everything . I put myself in the story . I love the Ballroom dances and the beautiful dresses the women wear . I sometimes wish I lived in that era, of course that is the wealthy that had the ballroom dances . Thanks for this chance to win this book of yours .

I have a few Georgette Heyer books on my list.
(
Pam Howell 2:01pm July 8, 2015)

I started with Georgette Heyer and then progressed to more.
Historical fiction takes you on a trip to the past along
with the customs and strictness of being proper and being a
lady. I love to see how the women are tempted by the men
who are usually rascals or rakes.

I am the mother of six children. Summer vacation is an oxymoron in my world! When I do have time to read, I usually catch up on my mother, Carolyn Brown's western/cowboy romance book. However, I do love a good regency and THE CURIOSITY KEEPER has me hoping I win this contest!
(

I "found" Regency Romances when I was in 10th grade and have been hooked ever since - besides having The Curiosity Keeper on my hoping-and-praying-I-win-list, I have been reading An Escapade and An Engagement by Annie Burrows - it is great!
(
Felicia Ciaudelli 8:15am July 9, 2015)

I never check to see what type of book I'm reading. I select one because of the plot. As a result, I read various types, including Regency. The Curiosity Keeper appeals to me.

I am so excited for the release of The Curiosity Keeper! Thanks for the giveaway.
(

I just finished reading an e-copy of The Curiousity
Keeper from NetGalley. I will be posting a review on my
site soon. Absolutely looooooved it. I would have to
say this is her best novel yet. Would love to own a
print copy though. I enjoy e-books, but there is just
something about a paperback book in your hands.
