The Phantom of London. Enigma Earl. The Greenwich Recluse.

Half of his face, shadowed by gold and brown whiskers, showed male perfection, but the other half, a bizarre pattern of scar lines and puckered flesh.

HE'S A MYSTERIOUS RECLUSE

Lord Greenwich is notoriously elusive. His tendency to hide his face in public and refusal to appear in London Society have even earned him some choice monikers, including "the Phantom of London."

And no one is more surprised than Miss Lydia Montgomery when she is betrothed to the earl in order to save her family from penury. But if Lydia wants a chance at happiness, she'll have to set aside her fear of Lord Greenwich and discover the man hiding behind the beastly reputation...

User Review  - BillieBook - LibraryThing

Smart, scarred, science-minded hero. Talented, independent heroine. No big villain. Secondary characters I'd love to revisit.
