“It’s time to fall in love with Suzanne Enoch.” — Lisa Kleypas
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. .
As always a thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for providing us with a copy of this book so that we may bring you this review.
In the midst of what we are dealing with I felt it was just right to review a few books I have been reading and hadn’t gotten around to writing the reviews for.
So to begin, I read this back in January so forgive me if this a short review as there are details I don’t remember, but I never forget how a book makes me feel.
I remember feeling how justified Miranda is with being afraid to put her help with Aden especially since swine of a brother is the one that puts her in a bad spot to begin with. I remember how Miranda wants to pretend its all going to be fine and hope that her brother is not in as bad of a place as he actually is. Mirandas despair and utter feeling of hopelessness is not uncalled for. She has seen what gambling has done to her family and doesn’t think it will solve anything for her to put her trust in Aden. But Aden is not how she has been shown gamblers are. He is strong willed and knows when not to let the addiction of gambling get to him. He knows its ok to walk away and that is one of the things I love most about him. He is fiercely protective of those he cares for and its beautiful to see that develop between himself and Miranda.
I gave this book 4 kisses, and I don’t remember fully why. Possibly because I would have liked to see things be harsher for Miranda’s brother since he is the one who puts her in the bad spot to begin with.
