An eccentric wallflower…

Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.

A cynical rake…

After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught-by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain.

A perilous plot…

After succumbing to Gabriel’s skilled and sensuous persuasion, Pandora agrees to become his bride. But soon she discovers that her entrepreneurial endeavors have accidentally involved her in a dangerous conspiracy—and only her husband can keep her safe. As Gabriel protects her from their unknown adversaries, they realize their devil’s bargain may just turn out to be a match made in heaven…



My Thoughts

By far my favorite Ravenel story thus far! Pandora was one of my favorites because she was a lady far ahead of her time. She was silly, loud, and clumsy. Not perfect but perfect because of that!

Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, is a witty character, too, that I rather enjoyed. I didn’t find his ‘dark side’ to be overly dark at all and found that part of the story fell a bit short.

Overall, I really enjoyed the pacing, the plot, and seeing how Pandora fought expectations every inch of the way. She grew so much as a character. Loved it.

Something I wasn’t keen on was a random plot thrown into the loop, but I understand why it was. It just didn’t need to be there, but aside from that, it was quite lovely!
