Esme Worthington believes it to be her fault that she is on the shelf. After all, her mother had warned Esme that men did not want a woman who spoke her opinions or had any book learning. Esme is very knowledgeable about the legendary Pandora's Box. This is why Esme finds herself kidnapped by the Raven's men. The Raven is a ruthless treasure seeker. He hunts and steals antiquities for profit. Before Esme knows it she is unwillingly wearing a bracelet from the box. Each bracelet represents one of the curses. Esme's is cursed with Lust. She has about two weeks to figure out how to remove the bracelet before the curse kills her.

Fielding Grey used to work for the Raven. Now he is freelance. Fielding hunts treasure on his own, hiring himself out to clients who are collectors. When the members of Solomon's hire him to locate and retrieve Pandora's Box, Fielding realizes that this is his chance to infiltrate the club. Somewhere within Solomon's is the answer as to who is responsible for his father's death. Fortunately or unfortunately, depending on one's point-of-view, Fielding finds himself rescuing a damsel in distress. The longer Fielding spends in Esme's company, the more attracted to her he becomes. But is it real or a result of the curse dangling from her wrist? And how can he keep Esme safe from the Raven, help her figure out how to remove the bracelet, keep the box out of the wrong hands, as well as search for information about his father's death?

***** This is one of the best historical romances I have read this year. I have always been interested in the legend about Pandora's Box. Perhaps that is why I found myself unable to stop reading. I read the entire book in one night. (Who needs sleep?) The engaging plot and charming characters blend together for one intoxicating read. *****

Fielding Grey, Viscount of Eldon, retrieves lost and legendary artifacts from around the world for anyone who can pay him to do so. Fresh from finding the lost Library of Alexandria, the shadowy members of Solomon's assign him to find and rescue Pandora's Box before its evil wreaks havoc on the world yet again.

Fielding doesn't believe in curses, and isn't completely sure the fabled box exists--but he is perfectly willing to take the job to investigate Solomon's so that he can exact revenge on those men who were responsible for his father's death and his family's desperate and humiliating poverty until he regained his fortune through the theft and sale of private artifacts.

He quickly finds that the box is real--and is in the same room as a nearly nude woman hanging from manacles alongside two of the Raven's henchmen--both of whom have acquired cursed bracelets from toying with Pandora's Box.
Unable to leave the stunning but vocal kidnap victim, Grey rescues her as well as the object of his quest.

For her part, Esme Worthington expected to be shunned and live without family or suitors, satisfied with her father's extensive library and the 'aunt' she adopted at the library. Ruined not by a loss of virtue but by her intelligence, knowledge, and outspokenness, no one even realized that thugs had kidnapped her in hopes of learning how to open and profit from Pandora's Box.

Esme's relief at being rescued by the sinfully gorgeous Fielding Grey turns to horror when she realizes that her own inability to resist opening Pandora's Box has tainted her with a dreadful curse for a decent woman--that of lustfulness.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Fielding Grey is an independent fortune hunter who makes his living from being employed by others who want to find treasure but do not want to get their hands dirty. One fateful day, he is approached by a member of Soloman's (whom he happens to hold responsible for his father's death) and they hire him to find the infamous Pandora's Box. He accepts this mission because A) he'll make some nice money and B) it might give him the opening he needs to investigate his father's death. What he doesn't expect is having to rescue the "damsel in distress" in the process. What he expects even less is to fall for her!

I have become a complete sucker for "bodice rippers" and this was no exception! I breezed through this book. It was different from my usuals because it touched on a subject many others hadn't - magic! What if Pandora's Box was real and it fell into the wrong hands? What if we all fell prey to its powers? Esme was boldly flirtatious and Fielding was coy & aloof - the perfect role reversal for a Victorian couple! The LUST bangle she wore wasn't just a prop, but an excuse to exercise that muscle of hers that had gone unused (take that as you will). In addition, Esme was educated and studious and had an immense love & appreciation for books which I can totally relate too. I enjoy these books so much because I love to see the evolution & growth of these couples. What started off as a physical attraction based on the power of a little gold bracelet, grew into a love that neither could deny. C'mon guys, how could you resist this stuff?!

This book is not without twists, turns and action though. There are quite a few secrets from Feilding's family past that are revealed which throw him and us (the readers) for a loop. In addition, since the Raven is also after Pandora's Box, he will stop at nothing to get it - even if he means eliminating those who get in his way.
