    enjoyable Regency romance

    In 1823 Alastair Cole owes Viscount Griffin Wright-Jones 1000 pounds due tomorrow he does not have the money to make remittance in less than twelve hours so he pleads for four days. As quid pro quo collateral the Viscount claims the family emerald ring Cole wears to be returned with a prompt payment.--- Two men, Mr. Fairley and Mr. Varah come to collect Mrs. Cole unaware that Olivia is his sister not his wife. They deliver her to Griffin who tells them they paid their debt in full. Griffin realizes she is either Alistair¿s cousin or sister when he offered her in remittance of his debt. Even now the idiot is back at the gaming hells having learned nothing. He is a bit surprised as to how calm the very tall willowy woman is when he presents the facts to her. Her bravery is obvious and soon she demands to deal in his gambling hell. As they fall in love, they become entangled in a dangerous game in which the bet is your life. --- The lead pairing make for an enjoyable Regency romance as their banter is delightful fun to follow. Readers will admire the unsinkable Olivia as she displays strong conviction and courage throughout. Griffin is somewhat mysterious and on the surface seems hard yet Olivia sees inside to his soul especially when he does not force her into his bed as the payment allows him. Much of the rest of the Ton are hedonistic losers who will leave readers wondering how the sun failed to set on the British Empire prior to Victoria¿s ascendancy. --- Harriet Klausner

    Disconcerting

    I had not read one of her books in a while and now I remember why I put that one down. The entire incest theme is disconcerting and completely took away from the romantic nature of the book. I was horrified and shocked although emphathetic towards the heroine. It spoiled what I thought would be a good romance for me and I wish the back cover had hinted at it at all otherwise I wouldn't have subjected myself to it.

    Very good

    I loved this book since it deals with some realities that many of us try to ignore. The writting and the story line was really good and the connection and developement to their love was nicely played out.

    Depressing......................................................

    Depressing................................................................................
    The heroines background was so sad.  Her family betrayals so horrendous.   You wondered how she functioned.  No less fell in love. I felt sorry for her and applauded her ability to cope...but I couldn't say I enjoyed it.

    Very good book

    This was my first book written by Jo Goodman and it was excellent. I liked that the main characters were straightforward with eachother and didn't beat around the bush in their conversations. Olivia's past was an unexpected twist but a refreshing change from most romance novels and their wishy washy plots. Griffen is my favorite what a great guy to have on your side.
    I couldn't put the book down. I'm looking forward to reading more from Ms. Goodman.

    This chick is bangin' with the pen

    Completely satisfied. Could not believe Alstair, the brother, put his sister up for a marker poor Olivia. Lord Breckenridge was completely arrogant and oh so sexy. All turned out well and good in the end. Intellligent writing at its peak. I have enjoyed a great many of this authors work, and will enjoy more in the future.
