Review:


Best-selling author Amanda McCabe kicks off her fabulous new Regency trilogy, The Muses of Mayfair, with a captivating tale of intrigue, passion, antiquities and seduction: To Catch a Rogue!


Miss Calliope Chase is not like other ladies of the Ton. She does not care a single jot for marriage and matrimony and instead of wasting her time on fripperies and trivia, she has formed a Ladies Society with her two sisters, Clio and Thalia, and some of their other friends whereby they can indulge in their passion for history and antiquities. Calliope would much rather have her nose in a book then spend a tedious evening in society. Yet, when the devilishly handsome Cameron de Vere, Earl of Westood, waltzes into her life, Calliope cannot help but be drawn to this irresistible gentleman...


But there are more pressing manners to worry about other than the charismatic Earl for polite society has been rocked by a scandal: antiquities are being stolen by a criminal who simply calls himself 'The Lily Thief' and intrepid Calliope and her group of friends are determined to find the culprit!


However, Calliope soon realizes that she needs help in her quest to unmask the thief - and who better to help her than the man who has haunted her thoughts and dreams for months: Cameron...


As danger escalates, Calliope and Cameron find themselves drawn to one another and they soon realize that one kiss is simply not enough...
