A chill of dread stirred the hair on the back of Leo's arms.  Control yourself, man.  You study legends, you do not believe in them. "Mrs.  Poole, if, for the sake of argument, you were to find the Rings, what would you do with them?"

"Sell them, of course." She sounded surprised by the question.  "It is the only way we can hope to recover at least some of my uncle's money."

"I see."

She turned away from the window.  "My lord, is there anything else you can tell me about this matter?"

He hesitated.  "Only that it can be dangerous to get involved in an affair that lures treasure hunters.  They are not a stable lot.  The prospect of discovering a great treasure, especially an ancient, legendary one, has unpredictable effects on some people."

"Yes, yes, I can well understand that." She brushed his warning aside with a graceful flick of her wrist.  "But can you tell me anything more about the Rings?"

"I heard an unsubstantiated rumor that a while back they turned up in a rather poor antiquities shop operated by a man named Ashwater," he said slowly.

"Forgive me, my lord, but I already know that much about the business.  I went to see Mr.  Ashwater.  His establishment is closed.  His neighbors informed me that he had left on an extended tour of Italy."

It occurred to him that she was losing her patience.  He did not know whether to be annoyed or amused.  She was the uninvited guest here.  This was his house.  She was the one who had descended on him without a by-your-leave and demanded answers to questions.

"You have already begun to make inquiries?" he asked.

"Of course.  How do you think I came to learn of your expertise in legendary antiquities, my lord? Your articles, after all, are published in somewhat obscure journals.  I had never even heard your name before I began my investigations."

He wondered if he should be insulted.  "It's quite true that I am not an author of popular novels such as Mrs.  York."

She gave him a smile that bordered on the condescending.  "Do not feel too bad about it.  We cannot all write for a living, sir."

"I write," he said through his teeth, "for a different audience than does Mrs.  York."

"Fortunately, in your case, there is no need to convince people to actually purchase your work, is there? The Monkcrest fortune is the stuff of legend, according to my aunt.  You can afford to write for journals that do not pay for your articles."

"We seem to be straying from the subject, Mrs.  Poole."

"Indeed, we do." Her smile was very cool.  There were dangerous sparks in her eyes.  "My lord, I am extremely grateful for the information, limited as it is, that you have given me.  I shall not impose on your hospitality any longer than necessary.  My maid and I will leave first thing in the morning."

Leo ignored that.  "Hold one moment here, Mrs.  Poole.  Precisely how do you intend to pursue your inquiries into the matter of the Rings?"

"My next step will be to interview the person who was with my uncle when he died."

"Who is that?"

"A woman who calls herself Madame Virtue."

Shock held him transfixed for the space of several heartbeats.  When the paralysis finally wore off, Leo sucked in a deep breath.  "You intend to speak to the proprietress of the House of the Rod? Impossible.  Absolutely impossible."

Beatrice tipped her head slightly to the side, frowning.  "Why on earth do you say that, my lord?"

"For God's sake, she is a brothel keeper.  You would be ruined if it got out that you had associated with her."

Amusement lit Beatrice's eyes.  "One of the advantages of being a widow of a certain age, as I'm sure you're aware, my lord, is that I have a great deal more freedom than I did as a younger woman."

"No respectable lady possesses the degree of freedom required to consort with brothel keepers."

"I shall exercise discretion," she said with an aplomb that was no doubt meant to reassure him.  "Good night, my lord."

"Damnation, Mrs.  Poole."

She was already at the door.  "You have been somewhat helpful.  Thank you for your hospitality."

"And they call me mad," Leo whispered.

Quick does it again! 7 octobre 2004
Par Amanda Carrell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
Don't be fooled by bland reviews, _With This Ring_ is classic Amanda Quick. Teeming with the usual mystery, romance, adventure and passion readers have grown to love, _With This Ring_ is right on par with all of Ms. Quick's earlier works. I'd even go so far as to say it has become one of my favorites by her.

In Beatrice and Leo Ms. Quick has created two strong minded, mature and well rounded characters. Beatrice is lively, funny and intelligent. I really enjoyed reading about a heroine who was nearing thirty years old and who'd been wed and bed before. It was a nice, refreshing change of pace to see an older heroine who had a sensible head on her shoulders be swept away by desire. So many times romance authors inundate you with simpering beauties whose only attribute worth mentioning is their looks. Ms. Quick continually sets forth heroines who make you proud to be a woman and Beatrice does just that. Leo is exciting, sensual and has a magnetism that the reader feels right along with Beatrice. Watching him fall in love with Beatrice is a beautiful experience and when he gave her the legendary 'Mad Monk' token of love I cried.

As always, the plot was engaging and full of twists and turns that kept me absorbed right from the first. Another thing I really enjoyed about _With This Ring_ is the fact that Ms. Quick alludes to a character from one of her previous books. It was nice to see a name I recognized and be able to recall another extraordinary book of her's that I'd read.

Anyone who has read this book and didn't like it should give it a second read through, surely you must have missed something the first time! Anyone who hasn't read this book -- what are you waiting for? Buy it now and be prepared for a marvelous read courtesy of Amanda Quick.

Loved It! 24 septembre 2002
Par J. Wilson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This is one of my favorite by Amanda Quick. Her stories are always original. You don't read that many romances with a 29 year old woman and a 40+ male. Beatrice is one of my favorite Quick heroines. She is no young, naive girl. She's strong, confident, stubborn, practical and intelligent. Leo is also one of my favorites. He is a recluse with no use for society, but Beatrice drags him out of his self-imposed seclusion and takes him on a wild ride that changes his life.
There was nothing dull about With This Ring. It takes off from the first page and doesn't drag. Beatrice and Leo are both strong characters, and I got a few good laughs reading about them locking horns. They also both deserve happiness and it was great to read about how they find it with each other. If you are a fan of Amanda Quick, you should definitely read this one.

My favorite Amanda Quick book ! 6 septembre 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche Achat vérifié
I have read a number of other Amanda Quick books and have adored them all. This one, however, now stands head and shoulders above the rest. It was engaging, enthralling and captivating !
I especially enjoyed the fact that the hero and heroine, Leo and Beatrice, were older than the usual historical romance, and both had been jaded by past relationships. It gave a more realistic and understandable feel to their characters and also made it all the more romantic that they discovered eachother. Another aspect of their relationship I enjoyed was how much they had in common. Passion is definitely evident, but one gets the feeling that their common interests will hold their relationship together forever !
I highly recommend this book !

Great Book Once You Got Into It 28 avril 2000
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
I found this book a refreshing change from her one word title books. Although they are always wonderful, it seemed Ms. Krentz was stuck in a writing rut. Her books were just different variations of each other. Don't get me wrong, if you find something that works, go with it! But With This Ring was a delightful change of pace. Leo and Beatrice were so three dimensional that they seemed to hop right off the page. The mystery was fascinating, and the heat between Leo and Beatrice fairly crackled through the pages. They are some of the ultimate love heroes of all time, and you want them to get together. Take my advice and buy this book!

Amusing and Intresting 13 avril 2002
Par "vampa" - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Poche
This is the first regency novel I've encounted with the hero being --gasp!!-- nearly 40. I was glad that the heroine wasn't some little baby of 16 as I hate those kind of books. But this book, my second Amanda Quick, was good. The 'murder' plot wasn't really that intresting but the situations that Beatrice got herself into were funny. I borrowed the book from my library and I'm not so in love with it that I'll buy it but it does make a good read for a rainy afternoon.
