Miss Jane Fairfield can't do anything right. When she's in company, she always says the wrong thing--and rather too much of it. No matter how costly they are, her gowns fall on the unfortunate side of fashion. Even her immense dowry can't save her from being an object of derision. And that's precisely what she wants. She'll do anything, even risk humiliation, if it means she can stay unmarried and keep her sister safe. Mr. Oliver Marshall has to do everything right. He's the bastard son of a duke, raised in humble circumstances--and he intends to give voice and power to the common people. If he makes one false step, he'll never get the chance to accomplish anything. He doesn't need to come to the rescue of the wrong woman. He certainly doesn't need to fall in love with her. But there's something about the lovely, courageous Jane that he can't resist...even though it could mean the ruin of them both.

Amazing! I think this is my favorite in the Brothers Sinister series so far. The heroine is brilliant and the hero is just the right kind of jackass. The writing is so sharp. Equal parts warmth and wit. Great plot, great sex, great characters. This series is fantastic. I desperately want to read ...

She vows not to marry, he knows she's the last woman he woul...
So much awesomeness, I stayed up until 2 am reading this book. I just couldn't go to bed without knowing that ending. Much like most of Milan's work, angst level is high. The main romance is between Jane Fairfield, heiress, and Oliver Marshall, aspiring politician. Jane doesn't want to marry but i...
