St. Vincent has returned from his foiled attempt to kidnap, wed and seduce Lillian Bowman. Beaten and downtrodden, he's not expecting the shy and reclusive redhead that insists on entry into his home. Even more surprising, he's astonished at Evangeline Jenner's proposal of marriage - a marriage of convenience in which she receives sanctuary and protection from her abusive family and he gets what he so desperately needs. That would be money, of course. The daughter of a notorious gaming club owner and a rumored half-wit, St. Vincent never thought he'd be stooping to such a level as to consider Evie's offer. Hard times call for desperate measures, on both their parts, and the two are quickly off the Gretna Green for an elopement of the not-so-heart. Both are determined to maintain their distance, but both are in for some eye opening experiences, ones where prior assumptions and false conclusions about one another will be tossed to the curb. Is it really possible for a self-professed rake to do a complete one eighty? The chances are good for St. Vincent, and watching his awakening to Evie's not so obvious charms is a wonderful experience.Read more ›
The story is set up as a Marriage of Convenience plot, with the (previously) timid, stuttering heiress Evie approaching gorgeous, financially-strapped libertine Sebastian with an offer of marriage. Evie is desperate to escape from her abusive, overbearing maternal relatives in order to nurse her ailing, consumptive father through his final days. Viewing marriage as her only option and realizing that Sebastian is in desperate need of money, Evie proposes an elopement to Gretna Green and Sebastian sardonically agrees to the plan. Evie's bargain involves consummation of the marriage to make it legal, but no lovemaking after the first night (Ha! As if!!!)
During their road trip to Scotland for the elopement, the couple begins to bond and (rather unwillingly) to develop feelings for each other.Read more ›
Luckily, Evangeline discovers that her husband is not totally selfish and promiscuous and Sebastian discovers that his wife is not a total doormat. Evangeline can and does take up for herself, although at times it is difficult for her. Her father is owner of a wealthy gaming club in London, which Sebastian and Evangeline will inherit upon his death. The happy couple elopes to Gretna Green and returns to London, where Sebastian begins to manage the Club. Evie's selfish relatives attempt to kidnap her and force a marriage with her worthless cousin, but that is quickly foiled (they were to annul the marriage).
There is more danger for the couple, though, from an unknown source. This carries the plot through the second half of the book, which was the most emotionally intense. Both of the main characters are fearful of commitment: she due to her past treatment by relatives (and a physical rejection of sorts by her father)and Sebastian's due to the loss of his sisters and mother. This was an enjoyable sequel that is highly-recommended. Looking forward to Book # 4!
