Now the agreement is almost at an end and Mary must return to her father's house if she isn't married at the end of this season. Mary bumps into Edward, Marquis Woodley at a ball. Her father catches them together and immediately demands they marry. As their wedding draws closer, people from Edward's past attempt to destroy their happiness.
I have loved Jess Michael's novels and this one was no exception. It is almost a continuation of "The Widow Wager" because it picks up close to where that book ended, yet so well written that you could pick up the series with this novel. Mary was a strong, determined character while Edward was a tortured hero due to his first marriage. This novel was a thrilling read from beginning to end. I am waiting for Jess Michael's next novel!
I received this book as an ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
