“Since issuing her ultimatum to him the previous evening, she had not encountered him anywhere in the house. Perhaps that was only to be expected. He’d been agreeable to her request that they behave as if the passionate interlude had never occurred.“- 66%, chapter 19
Bella and the Beast BY Olivia Drake
“Bella Jones’ father, Sir Seymour Jones, was an explorer/adventurer who revealed to her on his deathbed that the late Duke of Aylwin, whom he helped inquire antiquities in Egypt, had promised him half of a pharaoh’s treasure. However, Bella must find the map to the hidden trove to prevent her and her brother and sister from living in poverty.
Bella takes a job as a curator working for the late duke’s son to help him catalogue his father’s artifacts in London. She doesn’t reveal who she is or what her motives are, but when the attraction between them because impossible to ignore, the issue of the hidden treasure becomes a more complicated secret than either of them could ever imagine. “
