Heroine.... the daughter of an impoverished Baron (although later in the book he's a Viscount). The Baron gambles their money away, abuses her poor Mother. Our H and her poor mother have to beg a daily meal from the vicar. The mother is malnourished and wearing rags. Yet the H is able to have a season, and go to balls??? Where she meets Mr Slimey, I mean the hero. She falls in love, believing he's about to propose, she sneaks off to secluded spots with him. Until his betrothed catches them. Heroine is ruined. She spends a year training to be a courtesan. When it comes time to choose a "protector" the hero, now one of the richest men in England, shows up. Of course, our heroine hates him and refuses his offer, planning to accept the offer of a Duke. So the hero sets it up so the duke will catch her in the garden with the heros hands down her dress. Duke rescinds his offer, she has to accept the heros offer. After their first time the books sort of skips ahead to the last month of their contract.
Hero....his late father squanders all the money. So our "hero" cons a rich girl into falling in love with him. But his wife is a mean and visious women. Apparently they'd been married several months before she showed her true colors. Yet he says that on their wedding night she begged him to make her believe he loved her to feel the way our heroine felt. He consumated the marriage, and never touched her again, staying as far away from her as he can. She's so vicious that she doesn't tell him she's pregnant before she commits suicide as a way to seek revenge against him. Did't make sense. Why didn't she say, "hey I'm carrying your heir" then jump out the window? But his sweet sister, who did know about the pregnancy, tells him after it's too late. Why would you be so cruel to the brother you love?
Repeatedly, the hero thinks "I've paid my dues, I deserve happiness". Seriously? He ruined the lives of TWO women and he deserves happiness?? He also says that his wealth came at a high price, giving up the woman he loved, losing a child he didn't even know about, and living with a mean, vicious wife. Maybe he was the reason his wife became mean and visious.
She should have shoved him out the window, becoming a wealthy widow and mother of the heir.
Darius, the hero, compromised the reputation of Serena, the heroine, during a ball. Serena was not aware he had proposed to another girl for financial reasons and said girl was the one who caught them making out in the garden. Fast forward two years and Serena is being launched as the virgin courtesan. Darius found a way to secure her as his courtesan. Thus ensues their journey to settle their past issues and future. I liked how the main characters are protrayed. Of course, for me the hero could have been more contrite and repentant. Along that line of thinking I somehow pined for a different ending. But that is just me deviating from an already likable plot. I appreciate this book also for its epilogue.
