Raven Club book 2
by Tina Gabrielle
I just love reading a Tina Gabrielle romance it’s like chocolate, decadent smooth and sultry all at once. You can’t just have one you need a box! I absolutely adore her writing she never lets me down!
Hugh Vere never forgot or stopped loving the young Ellie Swift, she was his first and only love. As a second son he had nothing to offer her and when his father threatened and refused to allow him tho marry her, mainly because of her brothers scandalous reputation, he did what he thought was right -so like a man- he broke her heart in the cruelest way, by getting caught kissing another woman! To forget he joined the military. Years later he’s the new Marquess and in need of something more. When his friend offers to sell the Raven Club he jumps at the chance. He never expected to compete for the club by none other than the woman that always held his heart....Ellie Swift!
Ellie Swift has no desire to marry after her heart had been crushed and betrayed, she focussed on helping women in need by abusive men. Acquiring her brothers club will give her the independent means to accomplish this. Things aren’t that easy she has a competitor for the club...... Hugh Vere the man that destroyed her heart!!! She will never forgive him for the past they shared and the future they lost. She hates him with all her shattered heart but can’t help the need his kisses bring. Can there be a future for them? It’s a fine line between love and hate and love is what they both deserve, they just have to put the past behind and let love heal their hearts!
I absolutely adored these two! They had such passion and fire and a whole lot of stubbornness. Hugh being the ever knowing man never gave Ellie the benefit of asking her opinion and wants, he just bulldozed ahead doing what he thought was best for her. After all what woman wants to feel useless! Overall this was an amazing read the flow and characters were well paced with plenty of twists, intrigue and sizzle. With a very satisfying HEA!
I recieved a complimentary copy from the publisher via NetGalley. This is my honest unbiased opinion.
Hugh Vere, the Marquess of Deveril, who came from cold, hard-hearted parents, had no expectations or desire to become a Marquess – he was the second son. Yet, when both his older brother and his father died, he had no choice but to resign his military commission and assume the role. One of his first acts was to banish his cold and cruel mother to the country – then, it was on to finding something to give his life meaning besides the typical aristocratic activities. Since he’d recently taken an avid interest in boxing and he’d just learned that the Raven Club was going to be sold, he thought he’d purchase it. Imagine his surprise to find he had competition – a female – a female with whom he had a history. Hugh is a control freak – mostly because in his younger life he had no control over anything and it had cost him dearly – so, he fully intends to win his right to purchase the club.
Lady Ellie Swift, sister to Ian Swift, Earl of Carleton, had her heart torn out and ripped apart five years ago by Hugh Vere. She loved him with all of her being and she thought he loved her the same – but then, he betrayed her most foully. Since that time, she’s hated Hugh and has never trusted another man. She certainly has no intention of marrying one, and if she manages to win the Raven Club from her brother, she’ll have the financial independence she craves. She cannot believe her brother is actually making her compete with Hugh Vere! Ian knows their history; how can he do this to her?
Both Ellie and Hugh have reasons for wanting the club – Hugh’s are pretty open – he wants to be in control of things – Ellie’s are more hidden because she has activities that she absolutely must keep secret and the club gives her the perfect method of doing that. Should her brother – or Hugh – find out what she does, they’d stop her. She can’t afford for them to stop her because lives are at stake if they do. Hugh is very intelligent and has a gift for business, so she could easily lose to him. She has to be very careful to hide her secrets.
Not only is Hugh very intelligent – he is also very observant. He knows Ellie is up to something and it doesn’t take him long to figure out most of it – but when he figures it all out, he’s aghast! Hugh is a protector and his only desire is to protect Ellie – even from herself. Hugh does what he did in the past for Ellie – he decides what is best for her and he acts on it. He doesn’t ask her. He doesn’t give her a choice. That just absolutely infuriates Ellie – why can’t he see that she should be consulted, she should have a say in her own life. His decisions aren’t the only correct ones – there is more than one way to do things.
I began to despair that Hugh would ever have a grand epiphany, but he finally got there for a lovely, lovely HEA. It is definitely a good, intense, lustful read and I hope you will enjoy it as much as I did.
