A WAGER HE CAN’T AFFORD TO LOSE
Devil-may-care rogue Lord Darius Alexander can’t resist a wager. When a game of cards is suggested at the remote inn where he’s stopped for the night, he antes up his family’s savings, certain his Town bronze will give him the advantage. He never expects to lose his fortune to the irritatingly confident, uncommonly beautiful hoyden daring to play with the men. …Nor does he expect to lose his heart.
A WOMAN HE DOESN’T DESERVE TO WIN
Caitlin Hart is known for her good sense. When a ridiculous reprobate tosses his savings onto the gaming table, she doesn’t hesitate to divest him of it. But Lord Dare won’t accept defeat like a gentleman. He suggests a compromise, and before long the handsome scoundrel is working back his losses on her small farm. But her neatly plowed fields might be too close for her heart’s content, for soon she finds herself wondering if she can dare him to stay forever when the last of his coin is tucked safely into his pocket.
I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.
Amazing! I love a woman that can go toe to toe with any man that crosses her path. Cate is an amazing woman that never gives up no matter what happens or what she has been through. She is definitely not the usual heroine.
Lord Dare is a complex man and just when you think you know him something else pops up about him and adds to him. With everything that he has done, you wonder how he is still alive. His family is trying to help him, but they also add to his problems without realizing it.
Everything seemed to jump off the page and I could get an image of what was happening because there was enough details. I have many favorite scenes because they were not the usual scenes, especially the wagon scene! It’s a great steamy read with just the tension between them.
