He’s the Talk of the Town

The whole town is tittering about Baron Sebastian Thorne having been jilted at the altar. Every move he makes ends up in the gossip columns. Tired of being the butt of everyone’s jokes, Sebastian vows to restore his family’s reputation no matter what it takes.

She’s the Toast of the Ton

Feted by the crème of society, the beautiful widow Lady Prestwick is a vision of all that is proper. But Helena is no angel, and when Sebastian uncovers her dark secret, he’s quick to press his advantage. In order to keep her hard-won good name, Helen will have to make a deal with the devil. But she’s got some tricks up her sleeves to keep this notorious rogue on his toes…

Plot twists and love galore!

This is my first foray into the world of Samantha Grace, but I guarantee it won’t be my last.

The characters are interesting and I needed to know what would happen to them. So who are the players in this tale chock full of twists and turns? Sebastian is a wounded man. His girl ran off with his best friend. To deal with his upset, he drinks. It’s not pretty, but it’s his life. His lifeline? Helena. What a lifeline! She’s got a mission and won’t deviate from it. I loved her pluck. I also loved the way Ms Grace wrote her. It was like reading about my close friends falling in love. I could identify with Helena’s determination to get what she needed.

This is a fast-paced book. There were a couple of spots where I had to read, then reread to make sure I was up to speed on what was happening. The characters do fall in love rather quickly, which took a little bit to believe, but I liked the ride.

If you want a book that has both sweet and cute moments, but will stay with you long after the last page, then this is the book for you.
