"As a lieutenant in the Royal Navy, Benedict Frost had the respect of every man on board-and the adoration of the women in every port. When injury ends his naval career, the silver-tongued libertine can hardly stomach the boredom. Not after everything-and everyone-he's experienced. Good thing a new adventure has just fallen into his lap ... When courtesan Charlotte Perry learns the Royal Mint is offering a reward for finding a cache of stolen gold coins, she seizes the chance to build a new life for herself. As the treasure hunt begins, she realizes her tenacity is matched only by Benedict's-and that sometimes adversaries can make the best allies. But when the search for treasure becomes a discovery of pleasure, they'll be forced to decide if they can sacrifice the lives they've always dreamed of for a love they've never known ..."--Page 4 of cover.

I don't read many Regencies but this one is set far from the ballrooms of the British "ton" (le bon ton, or fashionable society). When courtesan Charlotte Perry learns that the Royal Mint is offering a reward for the discovery of a cache of stolen coins, she jumps at the opportunity to build a new life for herself and her daughter. On her treasure hunt in the countryside, she runs into Benedict Frost, whose war injuries blinded him and ended his career as a naval lieutenant. Initially adversaries, they realize it is wiser to work together. Both Charlotte and Benedict are tenacious, likable characters facing real issues, and their romance is exquisitely written.
