As far as rash decisions go, it was formidable. But Lady Jocelyn Rathbourne’s will remains strong. If the only way to save her family’s estate and reputation is by aiming a small pistol at the Duke of Calydon, then so be it. For Lady Jocelyn demands satisfaction—and she will have it at any cost. Even if it means demanding the hand of the intense and foreboding Duke himself...
But she’s made the first move against a very dangerous opponent...
For Sebastian Thornton is no stripling to be trifled with. The lady has played her hand. Now it’s his turn. For Sebastian is in need of a wife. And to find a wife with spirit and fire—even if she means to only marry for his money—would be a great prize indeed. And he intends to thoroughly take his pleasure with her... and demand his own satisfaction in return.
I read this book in less than an hour as it was only 89 pages long. It was short . . . and hot. That said, I could've used more plot, more storyline. The heroine and duke met and married within 24 hours, a duke who supposedly never really wanted to marry but married Lady Jocelyn to cover the honor of his brother, Anthony. Sebastian wasn't a very likeable character either, but their bedrooms scenes, as I mentioned, were hot. I honestly have little more to say other than it's a quick hot read for 99 cents in the Amazon store.
