Mr. Impossible by Loretta Chase

Hey, I did Angie's TBR Challenge for the month! I know I bought this one because people kept recommending it. Lots of people.

Rupert Carsington, fourth son of the Earl of Hargate, is his aristocratic family's favorite disaster. He is irresistibly handsome, shockingly masculine, and irretrievably reckless, and wherever he goes, trouble follows. Still, Rupert's never met an entanglement--emotional or other--he couldn't escape. Until now.

Now he's in Egypt, stranded in the depths of Cairo's most infamous prison, and his only way out is accepting a beautiful widow's dangerous proposal. Scholar Daphne Pembroke wants him to rescue her brother, who's been kidnapped by a rival seeking a fabled treasure. Their partnership is strictly business: She'll provide the brains, he, the brawn. Simple enough in theory.

Blame it on the sun or the blazing desert heat, but as tensions flare and inhibitions melt, the most disciplined of women and the most reckless of men are about to clash in the most impossibly irresistible way.

So...I finally read it. I did. And I liked it. Not quite sure if I love it yet, though. But I liked it. Daphne and Rupert are quite the couple and I loved how they interacted. Since I'm sure that I'm the last person on earth to have read this book, I won't really get into specifics (well, historical romance readers). I loved the Egyptian setting and would love it if more books were set here. Reminded me of my Egyptian phase when I was a kid. It's a really fun book and the romance here is really good. And that's all I have to say about that. *grin*
