Overview

Thousands of readers have already fallen in love with the Briarleys -- a scandalous family whose final descendants must do whatever it takes to secure their legacy. In the explosive conclusion to the Heiress Games series, Lucretia Briarley is on the verge of inheriting Maidenstone Abbey -- but an unexpected arrival threatens everything she's worked so hard to protect.

A thief on his final mission...

Maximus Vale is one of London's top jewel thieves, and he's protected his orphaned siblings by breaking every rule in the book. But his youngest brother is in mortal danger, and Max needs one final job -- one lucrative enough to help his family leave England forever. He boldly claims to be the lost heir to the Briarley fortune, planning to steal everything he can carry and escape before anyone proves that he's lying. Love is a distraction he can't afford....

A debutante with a devastating secret...

Lucretia Briarley is prim, proper, perfect -- everything everyone expects her to be. But her flawless reputation hides a sin she committed years ago -- one that will destroy her and everyone she loves if it ever comes to light. Lucy will do anything to inherit Maidenstone Abbey and keep her secret safe -- even making a risky offer to help Max claim the earldom in exchange for marrying her.

An arrangement that can destroy them in a heartbeat...

An attraction that starts as a game becomes something too powerful to ignore. But falling in love is a mistake neither can make. Their secrets and schemes set them on a collision course -- one that their families may not survive. Is the growing love between a daring, clever thief and a prim, determined debutante enough to conquer everything and win the Heiress Games?

Editorial Reviews

April Renn
Ms. Ramsey has woven a story of revenge, passion, deception, destiny, desperation and romance, into an utterly compelling Regency Historical Romance.
Monique Daoust
"Sara Ramsey has woven an intricate and utterly compelling story around deceit, hypocrisy, and revenge unlike anything I've ever read before...Such a rare talent is not seen that often, and I will be awaiting the next book in this series with bated breath." (praise for LORD OF DECEIT)
Caz AAR
"Ms. Ramsey has the knack for writing snappy, humorous dialogue and there's much to enjoy in their verbal sparring, which is often funny and poignant – sometimes at the same time – and I enjoyed the insights we were given into the Briarley family dynamic through the ages. They sound like a completely bonkers lot!"

I really enjoyed this story! I will say that I didn't really care for Lucy in the first two stories, but in reading her story she grew on me. Even though this would work as a standalone, I would definitely read all 3 books in the series to get the most out of them. Lucy desperately wants to keep Maidenstone Abby and will do anything to keep it, even help someone claim to be the long lost heir as long as he marries her. Max is a con artist and pretends to be the long lost heir just long enough to steal some items to get him and his siblings a new start in America. He didn't count on falling for his mark! I loved watching Lucy and Max interact. The chemistry between them was red hot and I loved their bantering back and forth. I'm hoping that Ramsey starts a new series where Max's siblings are the main characters. I think that fact that they didn't grow up in the aristocracy could lead to some interesting story lines!
