Publisher's Summary

Helen Banks is going to die. When her twin brother gambles away their fortune, she must save his life and take his place in a duel to satisfy the honor of a man her brother couldn't pay. Disguised as her brother, Helen faces the one man she's admired from afar, a widower with a dark past and eyes that scorch her very soul.

Since Gareth Fairfax lost his wife, the darkness in his heart continues to grow. Lashing out at anyone who opposes him, Gareth is stunned to face a lovely young woman opposite his dueling pistol. After discovering Helen's deception, he offers her a choice: become his mistress or her brother dies.

Their devil's bargain turns into a slow, sweet, intoxicating seduction. With each passing hour, Helen uncovers Gareth's secret heartbreak and yet she can't help but fall for the man who has ruined her. With Helen in his arms, Gareth wonders if he might yet be saved. All it takes is one passionate embrace, a kiss from the depths of his soul and a night of wild abandon. Contains mature themes.

    I enjoy a good book and a cozy place to cuddle with it.

    This would have been a great book if the ending had been better. Like the wedding an children.

    Story
    "Silly book and no so good narration.."

    The blurb tells you about the duel so no point in doing that.

    So, Gareth told Helen he would use her for his pleasure then she could leave. It doesn’t matter to me that he fell in love with her it was the cold calculating way he told her he would ruin her a couple of times that got to me. NOT my idea of a hero. Not that Helen minded too much since she was always thinking about all she wanted him to do to her. The entire story was just about desire, really. He kept promising her pleasure and giving her pleasure, without take her completely, because he wasn’t going to do that until she begged him to. He thought a lot of himself. And then at the end she came back and begged him to let her stay, that she’d be a maid, or whatever he need her to be, if he’d let her stay with him. It really was pathetic on her part.

    I’m glad it was only a 3 hour short story. I don’t think I could have stood more than that, since the end made the heroine look weak and spineless. HE should have been the one to go after her and beg HER to come back to him, not the other way around. He thought too much of himself and she didn’t think enough of herself. With Helen being such a weak heroine her taking her brother’s place in the duel didn’t make a bit of sense.

    There were explicit sexual scenes but no swearing.

    As to the narrator: Beverley A. Crick is barely ok for me. Her male voices just don’t sound manly to me. It’s like she deepens a woman’s voice but it still sounds womanly. She reads with emotions but when the men still sounds girly it’s not good enough.
