Overview

When Jack Merrill becomes earl Haddington inheriting not only a title but the devastating debt that came with it, his friends convince him that there is nothing for it but to gain quick wealth the really old fashioned way…marry into it!

On the hunt for a wealthy bride, Jack stumbles upon Kitty Hayes, the sister of his former target Evelyn. To him, Kitty is everything Eve was not to him – full of a fire and spirit that challenges him but also everything Eve was as well – a wealthy heiress. But Kitty is a married woman! Can he wait it out until she finds her freedom while reeling her in with friendship and seduction so that he might cast his net about the wealthy heiress the moment her divorce is final?

After years of marriage with an abusive husband, Kitty Hayes flees Boston hoping to find protection and anonymity with her sister, Eve MacKintosh, now countess Glenrothes in Scotland, while she petitions for a divorce from the man who has made her life a living hell. Mistaken for her sister, Kitty encounters Jack Merrill who seeks friendship, he claims, but Kitty knows what he is hoping for!

Certain that she will never marry again and certainly not expecting such a thing from an inveterate womanizer like Jack Merrill, Kitty negotiates a deal with Jack that if he can wait until her divorce is complete, she will give him the money he desires if in return he becomes her lover! Seeing everything he desires falling into place, Jack agrees to a bargain that is to him a complete win/win scenario that leaves him free of dreaded matrimony.

But when Kitty’s life is threatened by her former husband and their 'bargain' suddenly becomes much more complicated, can Jack just stand aside and let this woman walk out of his life forever?

Great book

Well worth your time. Loved it!!!

Highly Recommended

I fell in love with the love story of Eve and Francis in A Question of Love, the first book in the series, and I could not wait to see the continuing saga of their extended family in this book. There is really no way to top the poignancy of the romance of the first book, but this one is a worthy effort and who doesn't just love a sexy Scots brogue (or seeing more of Francis)!

    Wonderful Story

    Love this series and following the character from one novel to the next. I even like the tie in at the end of the stories that leaves you looking forward to the next book. Can¿t wait to read the next one & hope there is more coming.

    Another masterpiece for Fortin!

    Again, I feel Angeline Fortin is a well-rounded writer! She fills her pages with fairytale romance, action, adventure, lovable and hatable characters. In this, she touched on a topic I know about yet haven't read much about, physical abuse against women of this time period. It is a page- turner I thoroughly enjoyed reading.

    Love this series

    Again another fun read from Ms. Fortin. I love all the the people in this series. I love the way that characters don't end at the end of the book, but continue on to the next books. You must read all three books in the series, it's like one big book broken up in three parts. They are all great.

    This sequel is even better than the first!

    It has been my experience that a sequel usually isn't as good as the first story. But this one was a wonderful surprise. I couldn't put it down. What a great love story with a lot of twists and turns.
    And there is the added bonus of reading more about Eve and Glenrothes. I highly recommend this book!

    This is the 2nd in a series of three books about 19th century England and Scotland. This follows Jack and Kitty from the 1st book. A very enjoyable read and well worth the time and effort reading. So far both booka are over 1000 pages.

    I fell in love with the love story of Eve and Francis in A Question of Love, the first book in the series, and I could not wait to see the continuing saga of their extended family in this book. There is really no way to top the poignancy of the romance of the first book, but this one is a worthy effort and who doesn't just love a sexy Scots brogue (or seeing more of Francis)! I always have a little trouble liking arrogant rakes who have lived an indolent life. Knowing how much both sisters loved and were loved by their father, it is hard to believe that he could have chosen such poor husbands for his daughters. This is the only real failing of this book - a little bit unbelievable that both sisters ended up in abusive relationships. But Francis has 7 unmarried sibling remaining, so I hope to catch more of this family in future books. Can't wait for Moira's story in Book 3!

    Loved this series!

    I ended up buying all the books in the series. By the end of the series the story line started getting repetitive. The book can be read on its own or as part of the series so you don't have to read the next book to figure out the ending of the first. The characters were well developed and even though the books were a bit predictable the author always added in a bit of a twist.

    Great book 2

    Kitty and Jack's story (book 2) is just as good as Francis and Eve's. This is a continuing story so this series should be read in order to get a better understanding of all of the characters even though this story did repeat at times to help refresh key events. I can't wait to read Moira and Vin's story next! While this book is 1525 pages, it actually advances 2 to 3 pages at each turn.

    Decent story, bad typos

    This is part of a series and is a decent story.

    My only real complaint about all of this author's books is the editing. They are exceptionally poorly done. It appears that someone has edited them that does not possess English as their first language, or at a minimum has poor English skills. If you can look past typos and some blatantly wrong words you will likely enjoy her books, but if not, save yourself the aggravation and find another author.
