Overview

Angelica Douglas has no idea that she's the Countess of Melrose. What she does know is that she needs to support her family as a card shark, while finding a way to seek revenge on the men who ruined her father and sent her family spiralling down into poverty.
Robert Campbell, Marquess of Argyll, heir to the Duke of Inverary, has no idea who Angelica truly is. He just wants to watch over her and make her his mistress.
Angelica thinks Robert is simply a dashing rogue who is far too dangerous for her peace of mind. Robert thinks Angelica is an angel except when she's being a pain in the behind.
When Robert finds out that his own father may have been one of the men who ruined Angelica's family, he vows to keep a careful eye on her. When Angelica finds out that Robert's father may have been one of the men responsible, she vows to stay as far away from Robert as possible. But when danger threatens, both Robert and Angelica must face the truth and let fate take the upper hand.

    A

    Philandering hero with two bastard children; one with his brothers wife... his son is his nephew; but its okay it was just once and he was drunk. He had the illegit kids before he met his Angel. I could have really loved this book but I hate this type of macho careless hero. Angel deserved better.

    Sorry......................... Having a child with your brothers

    Sorry.........................
    Having a child with your brothers wife is not just careless.  It's sick.   No way could you make a hero out of this guy.  Without a hero there is no story.

    Not Worth It

    This book feels very long. The romance is instant and unbelievable. The girl is very immature and I found myself completely annoyed with her by the end. She gets angry very quickly then turns around and forgives without any reason just as quickly. She had no personality and the male treated her like the twit she is. The conversation was awkward and the interactions lame at best. The plot is barely hanging on by the end. I would think a good editor could have cut this book in half and it still would have been lacking.

    Pass it by.
    They have sex after 2 meetings and just after she and her sister rob a body from a grave. Seriously bad story line.

    Enjoyable

    This book was interesting, with twists and turns throughout. The illegitimate children (not really certain about nephew's paternity) were common among aristocracy in their time. Angel's reaction was realistic. Humorous at times....sad at times....just a fun fictional read. Liked the ending....

    606 pgs ehhhhhh

    It was okay but i have no urge to read anymore of this series. I didnt mind that argyll had bastards floating around but i did mind the lack of explaination about the deceased brother. Was there any? So ehhhhh yeah i made it thru but could be improved. I really wanted to like angel but i couldnt.

    Excellent

    This is an excellent book and I highly reccomend it to all adults who like a good romance novel. It not only contains romance but a little suspense and mystery thrown in - in just the right places. As I said, an excellent novel. HAPPY READING!!

    I would have paid for it!

    Amazing story, although there were some issues with spelling... Like "Dairy" for "Daisy"

    excellent

    I thought Ms. Grasso's book was very good. I loved it. It's my absolute favorite. I hope to read more of Ms. Grasso's work! I think including the *squelch sisters* (hahahaha 'sally') is a great idea.
