Overview

He was her first—and only—love.

Miranda Thornwood is desperate. Her brother, accused of murder, has lost the inheritance that would buy him a proper defense. There is only one man in London rich and powerful enough to help. Jason Blakewell, owner of the St. James gambling empire…the man she once betrayed.

Jason is stunned to find Miranda on his doorstep. Once he was a stable boy, wildly in love with her—believing she loved him in return. Until, on the brink of eloping to America, she betrayed him to her father. And Jason was sent to the hulks.

For ten years he has dreamed of revenge, and now she is handing him his chance on a silver platter. His price for giving her aid? She must become his mistress.

But when their lips meet, he tastes something other than revenge. He tastes the passion that never died. And now he is tempted to lay aside his thirst for revenge and risk his heart a second time in the greatest gamble of all.

Warning: This book contains handsome stable boys, French pastries, high stakes gambling, and odious uncles.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the daughter of Lord Thornwood, Miranda Thornwood grew up in the grandeur of Thornwood Hall, but her heart belonged to stable boy Jason. So when her brother is accused of the murder of her Uncle Clarence, Miranda turns to the one person whom she knows will help her—Jason Blakewell. But for Jason, who was sent to the hulks for attempting to run to the Americas with Miranda ten years ago, experience has made him into a different man. He blames Miranda for telling her father about their forbidden love, for abandoning their love, and for the two years he suffered at hard labor. Jason has used his anger well, amassing an unimaginable fortune. As the owner of the gaming hell Blakewell’s, Jason is the obvious person for Miranda to turn to rescue her home and her brother’s future. It takes only moments for the taciturn Jason to once again feel the same love and connection to his beautiful Miranda.

Verdict Set in London in 1832, The Last Time We Met is a quick read and a beautiful story that is both well written and intriguing. Readers will find themselves rooting for the wronged stable boy?turned?hardened business owner. Will he forgive Miranda for her father’s actions? Will she allow herself to love openly the owner of a gaming hell? Fans of Downton Abbey will love to see the TV world of historical London come alive on the electronic page!—Judy Taylor Garner, Strayer Univ., Glen Allen, VA
