Publisher's Summary

After years abroad, Royal has returned to Bransford Castle to find his father dying and the family treasury nearly empty. Then the old duke wrests a final promise from his guilt-ridden son: that Royal will marry heiress Jocelyn Caulfield and restore the estate to its former glory. However, it is not his fiancée who quickens Royal's pulse, but rather her beautiful cousin Lily Moran.

Penniless Lily knows that nothing can come of their undeniable attraction - but there is a way she can help Royal. Enlisting some questionable characters from her past, Lily concocts an elaborate ruse to recover some of the Bransford fortune from a notorious confidence artist. As the dangerous scheme unfolds, Lily and Royal are thrown together in pursuit of money, the very thing that keeps them apart. Contains mature themes.

What the Critics Say

"Set in 1854 England, this steamy trilogy opener from best seller Martin is an enjoyable mixture of tension and romance." (Publishers Weekly)

    Story
    "Barely Okay story and narration."

    This story started out decent then seemed to go all awry.

    I liked Royal and Lily as a couple. They had good chemistry and it felt genuine, not forced so that is good.

    To many things going on that should have not been there, made the story irritating. Why did there have to be so many more characters and elements added after about 30%. It started to get confusing and did not flow very well.

    As for the narration it was okay at best. The narrator needs to work on her men's voices.

    Story
    "the story is okay, kind of drawn out."

    this story quickly became boring. the story felt very forced. the hero was not heroic. the herion was a good character, the uncle was a good character but, it come together well. the narrator was not convincing as male.
