The Riskiest Game
Portia St. Claire’s brother has gambled and lost once too often, thrusting her into the hands of ruthless men. To keep his life he must give up his sister’s virtue, to be auctioned off in London’s most notorious brothel…
To retrieve an incriminating letter, Bryght Malloren once broke into a house where he was greeted at pistol point by a resolute woman…a woman he could swear stands before him, masked and trembling, on a madam’s auction block… Unable to leave Portia to such a cruel fate, Bryght turns the private wager into a very public game of seduction, one that confirms his reputation as a shameless rake and keeps all of London society breathless with anticipation. But on a night shimmering with destiny, truth, and passion, those who tempt fortune risk losing everything…including their hearts…

Whew. I just finished it and I was sagging in relief as the happy couple kissed and made up. Did I give away the ending? It was so long in tension, though!!! I really enjoyed the interaction among the family members and between the couple... It's very long though!!! Too long.
Loved Portia and the way Bryght fell in love with her cheerful disposition rather than just her simple beauty. Felt the love they held for each other and enjoyed the family loyalties. LORRAINE
This was a great book. It has lots of twists and turns, mystery, and of course love.
This book is okay, the plot's not so bad and Bryght is fine, but Jo Beverley made the heroine Portia another 'plain Jane' and I'm wondering why nearly all IF not all her heroines border on ugly while the hero's are over-the-top with perfect looks?
