Challenges: TBR, Countdown, Spring '08
Book Description: Running wild . . . When Cassandra Sheridan agreed to an arranged marriage to the Earl of Hampstead, she never dreamed the cad wouldn't even bother to appear for their betrothal ball. It seems her intended cares more for gallivanting than meeting his bride-to-be! So Cassie decides to enjoy an adventure of her own and sets out across Scotland…and meets a dashing stranger who has elevated dueling and deception to an art form. A dedicated spy on a mission, the Earl of Hampstead has more on his mind than a silly party. Now fate has thrown him together with a vivacious lady whom he must protect from harm, and whose sensuous beauty is proving most distracting. Worse still, Devlyn is horrified to discover she's the very woman he's engaged to marry! With their lives and reputations in equal peril, do they dare surrender to their irresistible desires?
My Review: There were parts of this book that I loved and other parts not so much.
I loved the hero Devlyn. I loved the heroine Cassie. They had great chemistry together. The love scenes were steamy and sexy. The storyline its self was interesting. What I didn't like is that it was just a little to long. Have you ever read a book and your enjoying it, but it's just a little to long? That's how I felt about this book. There was to much time spent on Devlyn's government work. I understand that it was a big part of the story. I just felt that it was overwhelming at times. I'm still going to read the other two books in the story to find out what happens to Devlyn's partners.
