Reagan and Amanda have a strong attraction from the start which only increases throughout the novel, but as always, they are plagued by lies, obstacles, betrayal and of course...a scandal!
There are an array of wonderful, warm and thoroughly delightful characters that you cant help but fall in love with and of course the scoundrels and villains that you love to hate!
I loved Amanda. She was lovable from the start but she really grew throughout the novel, and found herself in many situations where she had to prove she was made of some tough stuff. Particularly when the gruff, but adorable, Hogan enters the scene.
Reagan was incredibly handsome and definitely roguish but that added to his allure. You can tell from the start he wasn't a bad man, he was simply trying to prove himself worthy of his fathers trust in the family business. But he manages to get himself into quite a pickle, and in turn has to marry Amanda for her dowry. But does he just want her dowry or does he yearn for more?
There are so many twists and turns, many of which i didn't see coming. I was engrossed and even though this was a long novel, i found myself wishing that it wouldn't end!
The cliffhanger was awesome and left me wanting more and more!
I have no idea how this is going to turn out in the end, but i cannot wait to find out.
Monica has penned a brilliant, engaging and delightful debut novel!
