What’s the story? (From Goodreads)
They are a dangerous duke, a fierce lord, and an infamous earl—dark, bold, brave men who know exactly what they want. And there is only one woman who can bring them to their knees…
He is first and foremost—at everything. A man who’s made his own way in the world through ruthless cunning and sheer force of will. A strong and imposing Scot who can turn on the charm but does not suffer fools. His title: Lord Chief Justice of the High Court. His name: Cassius Gerard Ramsay. His mission: To investigate the goings-on at London’s most notorious gaming hell, owned and operated by one of the most intriguing and desirable women he’s ever met.
IN THIS GAME OF LOVE, THE RULES DO NOT APPLY
Cecelia Teague was an orphan facing a rather dire future—until a secret benefactor from her mother’s scandalous past swept into her life. Sent to prestigious boarding school and later to university, Cecelia believed high society was at her fingertips…Then, from out of nowhere, she became the inheritor of a gambling establishment. Now Cecelia must live two lives: one as a proper lady who finds herself undeniably drawn to Lord Ramsay and the other as a savvy gaming hell owner trying to save her business from the very same man. He has no idea she is both women…and Cecelia would like to keep it that way. But what happens when consuming passion and escalating danger threaten to reveal the truth?
I loved this book! I loved the chemistry between CeCelia and Ramsay. There was definite obstacles in their way but they were both strong minded and determined. The way they were “flawed” didn’t seem unrealistic and they did have to overcome a lot. I felt for both of them and I loved that Cecelia was no a damsel in distress. She wanted to have her own career regardless of her husband and his career.
What I also loved was that our hero was a Scot. I have a weakness for anything Scottish. Who doesn’t want to fall in love with a Scot right? And a heroine who enjoys chocolate and has some sexy curves? Sign me up.
I love how Bryne approaches historical romance. It feels fresh and the stories are in depth and I feel like I am transported. I did not read the first book in the series, but I bought it on my Kindle. I need to know all the stories in this series.
If you love great character development, a good story, and amazingly steamy scenes. This is the book for you.
