Cloaked in Danger
By: Jeannie Ruesch
Aria Whitney has little in common with the delicate ladies of London society. Her famous father made his fortune hunting archaeological treasures, and her rustic upbringing has left her ill-prepared for a life of parties and frippery. But when Gideon Whitney goes missing, Aria must embrace the unknown—armed with only the short list of highborn men who’d backed her father’s venture, she poses as a woman looking for a husband. She doesn’t intend to find one.
Adam Willoughby, Earl of Merewood, finds London’s strangest new debutante fascinating, but when he catches her investigating his family’s secrets, he threatens to ruin her reputation. He doesn’t intend to enjoy it so much.
When their lustful indiscretion is discovered, Adam finds that he regrets nothing. But now, as her father’s enemy draws near, Adam must convince his betrothed that she can trust him with her own secrets…before it’s too late.

I enjoyed this story, it had likeable, imperfect characters in Aria and Adam. I thought the story moved along at a good pace. Aria was loyal to her adventurous father and sometimes the things she did were quite impulsive, sometimes naive, especially when you consider the times and how a reputation could be ruined over what we would consider nonsense in our modern world. Adam was also a good man, trying to keep a promise to his late father and drawn into Aria's quest to find her father. After being caught in a compromising position, they became engaged and I think they both were caught off guard when they began to fall in love, and while Aria's investigating draws her into danger.
Author info:Jeannie Ruesch wrote her first story at the age of the six, prompting her to give up an illustrious, hours-long ambition of becoming a Dallas Cowboy Cheerleader and declare that writing was her destiny. That journey to destiny took a few detours along the way, including a career in marketing and design.
Her first novel, a fairy-tale like historical romance, was published in 2009, but the darker side of life had always captivated her. So after a dinner conversation with friends about the best way to hide a dead body, she knew she had to find a way to incorporate suspense into her writing. (The legal outlet for her fascination.) Today, she continues writing what she loves to read - stories of history, romance and suspense. She lives in Northern California with her husband, their son and an 80 pound lapdog lab named Cooper. She can be visited at www.jeannieruesch.com or found regularly on Twitter or Facebook.
She is also the creator of the WIP Notebook, a writer's tool to help stay organized while you write, which you can find at her website.
