LORD ST. LEGER'S FIND by JENNIFER MALIN
Archaeologist Miles Kennestone, Lord St. Leger, is spending
his summer at Lowery Park, home to the best-preserved Roman
villa in England. During a past stay, his host's two
husband-hunting daughters continually disrupted his work.
Now he's leery of a third daughter, the only one left at
home, who professes to be an archaeologist. Wary of being
sought after for his title and money, he has a policy of
avoiding marriageable women. While Melpomene Lowery
intrigues him both physically and intellectually, he fears
she is just a more subtle seductress than her sisters.
Indulged by her widowed archaeologist father, Mellie Lowery
has adopted his field and vows to earn respect in the
science. Now she believes she's onto an important find, but
her family wants her to drop her work for a London debut.
Her father allows her two weeks to finish her project but
insists she get help from Lord St. Leger, a man who treats
her with arrogance. As the two of them work together, she
senses she's winning him over, and their shared love of
antiquities attracts her to him. For the first time she's
met someone she might like for a suitor, but she has to go
away—and he says it's for the best.
