NY Times Bestselling Author
Brina Feld has settled into a life devoted to helping others since the sinking of the Salty Dove left her widowed. She has no need for a man in her contented life. But when the notorious and handsome Lord Blacknight returns and awakens her desires, her peace and serenity vanish. If she agrees to an alliance with him, she knows she will have to battle her heart to keep from being snared under his spell.
Zane, the Earl of Blacknight, was never supposed to inherit the earldom, so he didn’t much care to lead a respectable life before then. Fistfights, card games, and drinking are the order of the day. Now he’s determined to change his rakish ways and he knows the proper lady who can help him. There’s just one problem: He’s already bet he’ll win her hand before the Season is over. With her resolve to out-scheme him, how can he show her that his love is true?
This book opens with Brina in Paris at a masked ball. She’s avoiding a man who wants more from her than she’s willing to give. All she has to do is find a place to hide until the time her Aunt is retrieving her.
Zane has found himself in an embarrassing situation when Brina stumbles onto him. He has to convince her he’s not a criminal and save his cousin from making a serious mistake with his life. When she releases him from his bonds he shouldn’t have kissed her, but he did and he’ll never know who she was.
Now back in England taking on the title of Earl of Blacknight, one that never should have been his, Zane spots the woman he never thought to see again. What he didn’t expect is that she is a widow, one who has no interest or desire to change that status.
Zane’s family thinks he needs a lot more lessons on how to be a proper Earl and while they may be right, the way he decides to go about it is extremely unconventional. He makes a very public bet and Brina’s responding terms stun him but he doesn’t back down or away.
This is such a fun read with laughter, tears and a touch of heat.
