What a scoundrel wants, a scoundrel gets. . . A decade ago, the Marquess of Bourne was cast from society with nothing but his title. Now a partner in London's most exclusive gaming hell, the cold, ruthless Bourne will do whatever it takes to regain his inheritance—including marrying perfect, proper Lady Penelope Marbury. A broken engagement and years of disappointing courtships have left Penelope with little interest in a quiet, comfortable marriage, and a longing for something more. How lucky that her new husband has access to an unexplored world of pleasures. Bourne may be a prince of London's illicit underworld, but he vows to keep Penelope untouched by its wickedness—a challenge indeed as the lady discovers her own desires, and her willingness to wager anything for them . . . .even her heart.

3 starsThis left me disappointed. I didn't like Bourne, and didn't think there was enough chemistry between the protagonists to justify how awful he was to Penelope. While friends to lovers is one of my favorite tropes, this missed the mark. When Bourne had Penelope in the abandoned house, at the...
I was in emotional turmoil from start to finish. I wanted to cry for Penelope and rail at Michael. This was one of those books that I had to stop several times to have conversations (arguments) in my head as Penelope to Michael. He was quite frustrating at times. It was a very enjoyable story and h...
