The Curiosity Keeper (Treasures of Surrey, #1) It is not just a ruby, as you say It is large as a quail s egg, still untouched and unpolished And it is rud to either bless or curse whomever possesses it Camille Iverness can take care of herself She s done so since the day her mother abandoned the family and left Camille to run their shabby curiosity shop on Blinkett Street But when a violent betrayal leaves her injured with no place to hide, Camille has no choice but to accept help from the mysterious stranger who came to her aid.Jonathan Gilchrist never wanted to inherit Kettering Hall As a second son, he was content working as a village apothecary But when his brother s death made him heir just as his father s foolish decisions put the estate at risk, only the sale of a priceless possession a ruby called the Bevoy can save the family from ruin But the gem has disappeared And all trails lead to Iverness Curiosity Shop and the beautiful shop girl who may or may not be the answer to his questions.Curious circumstance throws them together, and an intricate dance of need and suspicion leads the couple from the seedy backwaters of London to the elite neighborhoods of the wealthy to the lush, green Surrey countryside all in the pursuit of a blood red gem that collectors will sacrifice anything to possess.Caught at the intersection of blessings and curses, greed and deceit, two determined souls must unite to protect what they hold dear But when a passion that shines far brighter than any gem is ignited, each will have to decide how much they are willing to risk for their future, love, and happiness.
