Roguish Oliver, Viscount Conway, desperately needs money to save his family's estate from debt collectors, and he knows just what to do - marry an heiress. When he sets foot on a train leaving London, he bumps into Rayne, the most bewitching woman he's ever met, and as luck would have it, she's an American heiress. The woman swears she won't marry, especially a fortune hunter. Oliver must win her for his bride at any cost, even if it means compromising the lady on a train and stealing her heart.
Avoiding fortune hunters has never been harder…

The mysterious Lord Conway is everything that Rayne desires and fears in a man with his sinfully good looks, wicked smile and devastating kiss. As heiress to her father's fortune, she isn't going to give up her freedom for any man unless he can love her without her money. As the train rolls through snowy English countryside, she starts to wonder if Oliver may be the Christmas gift she'd been secretly hoping for.

"I wish we could have met under different circumstances." The man cupped her chin and leaned down, feathering his lips over hers with one last ghost of a kiss." Sigh. Oh yes, heavy sigh. Magical. A meeting in the library at a ball by chance. Or was it? Rayne Egerton was visiting from America with her father for him to conduct some business in England. Of course she had been talked down to by an atrocious girl so she had taken refuge. It seemed someone else had too as Oliver, Viscount Conway entered as well. Of course neither knew the other's name but there was an undeniable instant attraction and they shared a kiss. But Oliver was desperate and needed a heiress. When he learned from his sister that Rayne was one, he could not believe it! Plus she was going to Lord Fraiser's house party that he and his family were attending and she was taking the train. How hard could it be? Well it may not be that smooth a ride at times! My heart melted at this wonderful romance and I loved Oliver for trying to do the right thing for his family. Take the journey with these two amazing characters that Lauren Smith has brought to life with her amazing story telling, and prepare to be enchanted... PS I cannot wait to hear some of the other character's stories!! Lori Dykes
