Clever, career-minded Mr. Patrick Gretham is the trusted man-of-business for a powerful lord, who is eager to turn this perfectly situated property wasted on lovebirds into a gambling hell the likes of which no one leaves with their fortunes intact. Over Deborah’s dead body! The beautiful proprietress hates everything Patrick stands for and will fight him every step of the way. Except when they find themselves on opposite sides of a plume. Or falling into each other’s embrace…
While I preferred the previous book in this series this was still a recommendable read.
This book strongly reminded me of the film You’ve got Mail, but I preferred Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan to the couple in this story.
I received an arc of this book via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
