SYNOPSIS: 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 women’s 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. . .
REVIEW: This series. The MacTaggert Brothers. The strong female leads. I am in LOVE. Okay, so I may have wanted to smack Miranda for a good portion of the book, but I also understand why she was acting as she was. The banter between Aden and Miranda makes up for it. Aden just does it so well, it’s a push and pull in the best way. I was rooting for Aden to win over Miranda from the first time they met. The suspense, the chemistry, and the growth of the characters made me more invested in this story as it went on. We’ve gotten two brother’s stories, and I cannot wait to get the final one in the third book!
Thank you to St. Martin’s Press for the eARC in exchange for an honest review!
