Adair Thorne was reliving his nightmare! Once again his life was going up in flames. Luckily none of his family would be dying this day but his gaming-hell dream was simply being turned into ashes. Problem was he was certain he knew the rival gaming hell owner and family, the Killorans, were behind it. His hatred, fury and passion for the Killorans was palatable, but when he met Cleopatra Killoran, a tart mouthed vixen who has made it her priority to ridicule him at every opportunity. If she were anyone else but a Killoran, Adair would unleash at the passion that devours him each time he looks at her.
No one can make Cleopatra do anything she doesn’t want to, but if it means protecting her siblings she would do it at a cost to her own happiness. A peace accord had been reached whereby the Black family would sponsor Cleopatra for a season in order to land a noble husband. But her heart seems to have a mind of it’s own Cleo cannot allow her head to be turned by the infuriating and darkly handsome Adair Thorne.
*** What a terrific read, and what great characterizations! Can’t help but fall in love with Cleopatra – tough gal with an even tenderer heart she tries to hide from the world. But little by little Adair, who really didn’t want to give an inch started to see her through different eyes and acknowledged that her ideas for the design of his new gaming-hell were both smart and sensible. And though she was a slight ‘bit of a thing’ and not his usual type of round and buxom – Cleo was looking mighty fine.
Only one thing that threatens the rules of this game: Cleopatra has a secret! One that could unravel the families’ tenuous truce and shatter the unpredictably sinful romance mounting between the hellion…and a scoundrel who could pass for the devil himself. But Romance being romance you’ll love the ending just as much as I did!
