Duke of Thorns by Sara Ramsey

Callista Briarley wants a home of her own.  Her father is gone and she has survived a battle at sea so she could go to her father's ancestral home in England so she could claim it as her own.  She is in a contest with two of her female cousins to make the best match and inherit the estate.

Gavin Emmerson-Fairhurst, the Duke of Thorington, is cursed.   His fortunes have been reversed due to his shipping investments and now he needs to secure an heiress for his younger brother and husbands for his sisters.

Thorington attempts to teach Callista the ways of Society so she will be a match for his brother Anthony.  Only they didn't count on falling in love.

This is the first book in The Heiress Games.  I thoroughly enjoyed the strong characters of Callie and Thorington.  They are not the typical Hero and Heroine.  She runs her own "shipping" business and he has been married, widowed, and attempted to steal a bride.  The sparks fly between them.  I liked that while this is the first in this series, some of the characters that were in the earlier books are in this series, and it doesn't read like you are missing things.  It flowed well.  

I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you.
