Seduction is a wicked game, and no one plays it better than the devilish Will Samson in Rachel Brimble’s captivating new novel…
Since girlhood, Emily Darson has accepted that she will marry Nicholas, the son of her father’s trusted business partner. The marriage contract safeguards her family legacy, Emily’s fortune, and everything she values—except her independence. Only when a sinfully handsome scoundrel enters her life does Emily realize quite how much a loveless match will cost her.
Will Samson has advanced from expert pickpocket to confidence trickster of the highest caliber. Now he has come to Bath to exact vengeance on the man who destroyed his mother—the man Emily will soon marry. But from his first glimpse of the enemy’s bewitching, spirited fiancée, Will’s plan changes.
Amid the ballrooms and salons of elegant society, heated glances explode into scandalous kisses. Revenge is sweet, but surrender will be irresistible…
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
The idea of the story is good. But, it moves so slow and is quite repetitive that it drags the whole feel of the book down. There are some editing issues. (at least in the review copy I got) I really wanted to like this book. The whole plot seemed great, and refreshing compared to most Historical romances. The story didn't surround the Ton or some rich heiress. But it definitely falls short. It wasn't a horrible read, just too slow.
