Description

Colin Thorne finds his way out of a London workhouse but at the cost of losing his two younger brothers. With an uncertain future ahead of him, Colin makes seafaring his life until the inexorable pull of revenge draws him back to London. The debt owed to him by the Earl of Weybourne will be paid.

Weybourne Park has been Mercedes Leydon's home her entire life. Now serving as the estate's manager and caretaker of her uncle's two children, Mercedes knows the earl's frequent absences are what make Weybourne Park a home. 

But the earl's gaming has taken its toll and she and her young cousins are faced with losing everything to a devil-of-a-stranger calling in a debt that can't be paid.

Casting caution aside, Mercedes will make a new bargain with this devil.  If it's her soul he wants—or her body—she will give it to him and stake her own claim on his steadfast heart.

Reviews

  • A wonderful mix of intrigue and romance

    I totally enjoyed this book. The story had a bit of everything to satisfy many areas one looks for in a good novel. There was intrigue and romance between well rounded H and h with interplay from the minor characters who filled in any little holes of comedy and naughtiness that endeared you to them. The story follows along the H and h whose lives somehow twist and mingle in multiple areas and they also add heat and passion to the pot fulfilling the final aspect that creates a good romance story. A must read and I definitely will follow up and acquire the rest of the trilogy.
