The Devil and the Heiress
Harper St. George
Pub date: 6/29/21
I enjoyed August and the Duke of Rothschild story in the first book. It seemed like Lord Leigh and Violet had chemistry and was excited when I saw this book was available on Net Galley.
If you loved the first book your will be soooo happy with the second book.
Christian, Lord Leigh thinks he can flash his title and get whatever he wants but doesnt impress Violet’s father with his suit. He decides to make other plans. He encourages her to marry who she wants or run away but when she approaches her parents they push some nasty Lord her way.
Sooo Violet decides to run away but Christian happens to be outside randomly and can give her a ride… Let’s start the one carriage, one room fun! All my favorite tropes!
There was steam!! And some novel writing! Some soul searching and growth (personal growth people).
A great continuation to this story, I hope BOTM picks it up.
Omg thank you! I was thinking at the end how I want a story for Maxwell and I see a blurb for Book #3 and it’s for him!!!
Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐ ⭐
Thank you berkley romance and net galley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Sparks fly when a runaway heiress bargains with a devilish rogue to escape a marriage of convenience.
No one would guess that beneath Violet Crenshaw’s ladylike demeanor lies the heart of a rebel. American heiresses looking to secure English lords must be on their best behavior, but Violet has other plans. She intends to flee London and the marriage her parents have arranged to become a published author–if only the wickedly handsome earl who inspired her most outrageously sinful character didn’t insist on coming with her.
Christian Halston, Earl of Leigh, has a scheme of his own: escort the surprisingly spirited dollar princess north and use every delicious moment in close quarters to convince Violet to marry him. Christian needs an heiress to rebuild his Scottish estate but the more time he spends with Violet, the more he realizes what he really needs is her–by his side, near his heart, in his bed.
Though Christian’s burning glances offer unholy temptation, Violet has no intention of surrendering herself or her newfound freedom in a permanent deal with the devil. It’s going to take more than pretty words to prove this fortune hunter’s love is true….
