I have read Joanna Shupe in the past and all I can say is I love her writing! Her writing takes you on a journey back through time to the glittering ballrooms of New York, the bars of Thirtieth Street, and the offices of Wall Street.
The antics of the hero and heroine in this story made me smile from ear to ear as I read this story. Like the part when Nora meets the Julius in a hotel celebrating his birthday in a ballroom on a horse, and then proposes a fake engagement. Nora is an earl’s daughter who was sent to America after she is caught with an artist she thinks she is in love with. She comes up with a plan to cause a scandal with Julius Hatcher so she will be sent back to England to Robert the man she loves.
Julius Hatcher is a hero who is trying to get accepted to upper class in New York to discover the identity of the men were who invested with his father and backed out of the deal when the banks collapsed. His family lost everything including his father taking his life. He vowed to get revenge and the only way was to accept Nora’s proposal. Nora wants to cause a scandal and Julius is trying to protect her from scandal.
The sexual tension when these two are together makes the sparks fly off the page. It was great to watch as Nora and Julius’s fake engagement become something more. The love scenes in this story were so hot and steamy I had to fan myself as I was reading this book. This book was a real page turner to the very end. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves historical romance with revenge, steamy love scenes, and of course, love.
