When a resourceful English lady and a hot-blooded Highlander join forces to trick a scoundrel, every rule will be broken!
Miranda Harris is known for her charm, wit, and ability to solve any problem she encounters. But when her brother lands neck-deep in gambling debt to a crafty villain and Miranda is subsequently blackmailed into marrying him, she must enlist the help of the devil himself to save the family honor―and herself.
Devilishly handsome Highlander Aden MacTaggert knows next to nothing about the ways of the ton, but he most certainly knows his way around gaming halls and womens’ hearts. Still, Aden is not sure how he’ll manage to find a Sassenach bride in time to save his family’s inheritance. When his almost sister-in-law Miranda comes to him for assistance, he proposes a partnership: She will help him navigate London society and he’ll teach her everything about wagering…and winning back her freedom. The beautiful, clever lass intrigues Aden―but is she playing her own game, or are the sparks between them real? He is accustomed to risking his pocket. But betting on Miranda’s love is a game he can’t afford to lose. . .
“If she genuinely disliked him he’d turn elsewhere, but beneath the sparring between them, perhaps even because of it, he felt…something. A slow, brewing lightning storm that made the hair lift on his arms and had him anticipating things he couldn’t yet put a name to.”
I just recently started reading historical romance books. They just never seemed to catch my eye before now. I’ve been binging on them ever since last fall. I don’t know what it is lately but they are some of the best books I’ve read lately.
Aden and Miranda have that push and pull relationship that just grabs my attention. They bad boy Scot who gets all the ladies, and the one lady who doesn’t want him. It’s the stuff book crack is made of for me.
It’s a very entertaining book. The beginning took me a minute to get into but after that it was smooth sailing. I am planning on going back and reading the first book in this series, I hope there is more to come after this one as well.
