She's an American heiress. He's a devilish earl. When these two collide, the sparks ignite a shocking scandal in USA Today best-selling author Laura Lee Guhrke's unforgettable Victorian-era romance.

So he sets out to win this golden beauty... and prove to her that being ruined by him was the best thing that could have happened to her.

Characters actually say what they mean!
I cannot even count the number of books that have frustrated me beyond belief with conflicts that could be resolved so easily if the characters just had a straight up conversation about what they feel and their motivations. Yes, sometimes a little angst is pretty awesome, but not the kind of angst that's caused by the characters being morons.The characters in this book don't do that! I have never, ever read a character that talks as honestly as the hero. And it actually AVOIDS and RESOLVES the conflict!! Yet, there is plenty going on aside from communication between H/h that held my interest through the entire novel. It was soo fabulous to not have to feel like banging my head against a wall or throwing my Kindle across the room.
Jack, because he doesn't beat around the bush when he's explaining himself. He's real, yo.
There were a few moments where I was laughing, it was a fun book. I especially loved the setups Jack put the other admirers through.
This is the first novel I've read from this author, I'll definitely be reading more! Susan Ericksen was amazing as always, I love her narrations so much. Overall, a fun, interesting, and fulfilling story.
