Publisher's Summary

Heiress Alana Van Alen has everything - but she is living a lie. To protect her sister, she plays society's game and attends dazzling balls and soirees - until a cunningly orchestrated act of revenge leaves her penniless and at the mercy of one of the city's most notorious gentlemen.

Dubbed the Predator of Wall Street, Trevor Sheridan rose from abject poverty in Ireland to the pinnacle of power in Manhattan. Yet he's still shunned by the city's elite Four Hundred. Now he has parlayed his hunger for revenge into a scheme to destroy the rich and powerful. In the final phase of his plan, he will marry the pedigreed Alana Van Alen to gain the acceptance that has been denied to him for so long.

Not for me

I made it through the first hour, but it felt too much like a checkers game that wanted to be a chess match. The dialogue just didn't seem to fit the period, and I can't imagine any single young woman meeting a man for dinner like the heroine did. Too much of what I heard had modern sensibilities and it was jarring.

Ireland the Brave

Wonderful and picturesque, enjoyable to see the beauty of old New York. Good history behind the 400

Too much conflict and angst

This book is very highly rated and obviously liked by many people but unfortunately I didn’t like it....
There is too much conflict based on misconceptions and misunderstandings, If heroine makes a step forward hero takes two steps back and vice versa.
He is 32 years old good looking, rich but insecure man with the massive chip on his shoulder, playing manipulative mind games with 19 year old girl in order to install his 16 year old sister into a society that he hates venomously.
For most of the book he feels like he is not good enough and it makes him moody and angry while poor heroine either crying or on the verge of tears.
Just too much unnecessary drama out of nothing.

falling for the beastly captor

the main problem I had with this story was that the hero had no redeeming qualities towards the heroin whatsoever. making it difficult to believe how she could fall in love with him. he was so nasty towards her but I'm guessing because he was so handsome she falls in love? while he did have redeeming qualities to others he never showed them towards her, so when she fell in love with him I'm like wait, what? other than that the story had an interesting plot line and was well-written. the narrator did a good job.

Loved it!

This is my second book by Meagan McKinney ; the first, Till Dawn Tames the Night. Loved both stories. In this, our hero is a self made millionaire of Irish decent. Trevor is smart, strong, sexy, and ruthless and his behavior towards the heroine at times is indifferent and cruel. The h is strong, kind, and caring ,not the usual class snob society lady. He is the Lion and she is the Lace. This was not a light- hearted and easy read but it held my attention and I wanted more.
