Widow Meriel Vyse is stunned speechless when someone tries to abduct her on her way to a ball. Fortunately, Quinn Raines, her secret beau, shows up to foil the attack. Unfortunately, as the two of them are struggling with her abductor, Meriel accidentally stabs Quinn with a knife.

Unbeknownst to Meriel, Quinn set up the fake abduction so he could play the hero and win her hand in marriage. But now that his plan has gone disastrously awry, can he convince her that he’s still the man for her?

My Review

*I received a copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.

I normally don’t like this quick of a read, but I loved this! When she stabbed him I knew it was going to be a good read. It’s very fast-paced but has enough about both of them so you understand them and will make you laugh at times. I loved the ending.

Meriel believes she isn’t good enough for him because of her past. I loved that she spoke her mind and when she made up her mind she followed it. I loved her in the end and what she did.

Quinn is worried about why she won’t marry him. I loved how he thought his plan would work until he saw the knife. His past was also one that he worried about. I loved when she told him everything.

When Niall Lindsey, the Earl of Margrave, is forced to flee after killing a man in a duel, he expects his secret love, Brilliana Trevor, to go with him, or at the very least wait for him. To his shock, she does neither and sends him off with no promise for the future. Seven years and one pardon later, Niall returns to England disillusioned and cynical. And being blackmailed by the government into working with his former love to help catch a counterfeiter connected to her father doesn’t improve his mood any. But as his role as Brilliana’s fake fiancé brings his long-buried feelings to the surface once again, he wonders who is more dangerous—the counterfeiter or the woman rapidly stealing his heart.

Forced to marry another man after Niall was exiled, the now widowed Brilliana wants nothing to do with the reckless rogue who she believes abandoned her to a dreary, loveless life. So having to rely on him to save her father is the last thing she wants, much less trusts him with….But as their scheme strips away the lies and secrets of their shared past, can she let go of the old hurt and put her pride aside? Or will the pleasures of their renewed passion finally enable them both to rediscover love?

My Review

* I was provided a copy from the author via NetGalley in exchange for my honest review

Secrets and lies made his leaving worse for both of them. All these years they both hated each other, but once together there’s no mistaking there is still something there. Normally I don’t like books with misunderstandings and grudges, but I loved this one because there were many reasons for them. I loved the back and forth arguments between them because they had changed over the years and were learning about each other again. I had my suspicions over who was behind the counterfeiting but wasn’t sure until it was revealed. They worked together perfectly and some family members were a great help too.

Brilliana has a broken heart that left her wanting and hating. I loved her from the start because she wanted to make sure she didn’t have to rely on a man again. She was very strong because of everything that happened in those years that he was gone and for her son. She was also very smart and able to figure things out.

Niall wasn’t the same innocent boy from before. His reason for the dual and keeping it a secret was to protect people, but he realized that it also hurt others. I loved him from the start because he didn’t want to see others hurt, but knew it came with the job. He slowly let go of the hate as he found out things.
