A wounded beast . . .It took Marcus Bradley forever to find a suitable bride. And then he lost her-all because some meddling matchmaker with a crazy notion about "true love" helped her elope with another man. Now, to save his sister from a terrible marriage alliance, he needs a replacement-an heiress to be exact . . . and he knows just the woman to help him find one.
A spirited beauty . . .
Danielle Strafford believes everyone deserves a fairytale ending-even the monstrously scarred and notoriously brooding Marquis of Fleetwood. Not that he's left her a choice. If she doesn't help him secure a wife-by any means necessary-he'll reveal her scandalous secrets.
A passion that will consume them both
The more time Marcus spends with Danielle, the less interested he is in any other woman. But the Beast must do the impossible: keep from losing his heart to a Beauty he is destined to lose.
The connection between Marcus Bradley and Danielle Strafford is amazing and I couldn't read the story fast enough to see what would become of it. I loved this story, in fact I had a huge headache from reading it because I had a permanent smile on my face. As far as heroines go Danielle was quite unique and her strength was something any reader could aspire to. Marcus could come across as a complete ass but instead he is a thoughtful and genuinely good man. I enjoyed that we got to see so many facets of his character and that Danielle got to see so many glimpses of it as well. The interactions between these two were thoroughly engaging and I couldn't read this book fast enough. While I while the end came much faster than I liked because I didn't want it to end it was a great wrap up to the story. I'll definitely be telling all my book-loving friends that this one s a must-read.
