Series: A Revelry’s Temptest Novel #3
Publication Date: March 12, 2018
A past she needs to right. A bargain he has to make. An attraction neither can deny.
A wary widow.
No stranger to love, Lady Desmond is well-versed in the heartache that can accompany it. Burned by her traitorous heart again and again, Cass has determined her life will include only what she can control—and has made her work as the proud proprietress of the Revelry’s Tempest gaming hall her sole mission.
A reluctant viscount.
Inheriting an English title was not something American Rorrick Trowlson wanted in life, nor was the mess that came with the estate. His brother’s mess. A mess he now has to clean up. But to do so, he needs a tract of land his brother flippantly lost in a stupid bet at the Revelry’s Tempest.
A past that needs to be righted.
After he mistakes her for a madam of a brothel, Cass wants nothing to do with the brash American—until she realizes he may be just the key to righting her deepest regret. She strikes a bargain with Rorrick—take her to America and she will sign the land back to him.
As the spark between them quickly turns into a flame, Cass resists, as she had sworn long ago to never be careless with her heart again. Once, twice, she had been a fool—but three times would be the death of her. But can a brazen American with a new title batter down the stalwart defenses of a widowed countess?
This is a series, and it is Lady Cassandra’s turn. She has had a miserable marriage to a childhood friend, Lord Percival, who leaves her after one night of marriage. Considering her low self-esteem, she was easily taken in by the next man. Now, Lord Rorrick Trowlson has come to London from America to take over his late brother’s estate. He needs some land back that his brother gambled away. In order to get it, he meets the owner of The Revelary’s gaming hell, who just happens to be Lady Cassandra. Being a brash, honest American, he assumes, Cass is a prostitute, now to undo the damage.
This story is the redemption of Lady Cassandra, and the Risk Rorrick must take, to make his future worth living. I personally love Rorrick, he is always optimistic, humble, and a man!
I highly Recommend! Thanks! Enjoy!
