Description from Amazon.com:
Book #1 of author Julia London’s brand-new series about four sisters determined to rescue themselves from ruin…
Desperate times call for daring measures as Honor Cabot, the eldest stepdaughter of the wealthy Earl of Beckington, awaits her family’s ruin. Upon the earl’s death she and her sisters stand to lose the luxury of their grand home—and their place on the pedestal of society—to their stepbrother and his social-climbing fiancée. Forced to act quickly, Honor makes a devil’s bargain with the only rogue in London who can seduce her stepbrother’s fiancée out of the Cabots’ lives for good.
An illegitimate son of a duke, George Easton was born of scandal and grows his fortune through dangerous risks. But now he and Honor are dabbling in a perilous dance of seduction that puts her reputation and his jaded heart on the line. And as unexpected desire threatens to change the rules of their secret game, the stakes may become too high even for a notorious gambler and a determined, free-spirited debutante to handle.
Oh Yum! This book sizzles with sexual tension and romance. It is a page turner from the beginning. The wonderfully nuanced characters are spot on. We have the feisty, slightly spoiled, head strong debutante and the penultimate rake. She is trying to save herself and her sisters from ruin and he is on a downward spiral of losing his entire fortune. They have an instant chemistry that neither can deny although they do their best. He can’t keep his hands off of her and she can’t seem to refuse him. The side characters of the slightly vacant stepbrother, the social climbing fiancé, the serious sister, the wise beyond her years sister and the young attention grabbing sister make this a fun, believable read.
I highly recommend this book to all Historical Romance lovers.
