Series: A Donovan Novel | Publication Date: February 1, 2012
It was a reckless wager, and one Max couldn’t resist: seduce the alluring Olivia or forfeit part of his fortune. Yet the wild, soon-to-be Duke never imagined he’d fall in love with this innocent beauty. Nor could he have guessed that a dangerously unpredictable rival would set out to destroy them both. Now, Max must beat a Madman at his own twisted game-or forever lose the only woman to have ever won his heart.
You can find Jennifer in Southern California trying to talk her husband into yet another trip to England, helping her three children with homework while brainstorming a new five-minute dinner menu, or crouched in a corner of the local bookstore writing her next novel.

Olivia is treated like a china doll by her sisters since her encounter with malaria as a youth. Since there wasn’t much of a treatment in those days, she is still a little bit unwell. Underneath her fragile exterior is a heart that wants to explore life but with a recurrent fever, she can’t do much. She finds herself with unwanted attention from a rival to Max, the soon to be Duke and when is rebuffed, he proclaims her an ice princess. Max wagers that he can bed her and proceeds to seduce her. Well, that is what he intended, but instead he falls in love with her. The romance between the two is just exquisite. There is a lot of action to keep the plot moving and you seriously won’t be able to stop reading this one!
Looking back, it is almost a year to the day that I read Confessions of an Improper Bride which is the start of the Donovan Sister series. You don’t need to pick that one up first to continue with the story since the author does a great job of laying out the characters so it is easy to follow, but you should pick it up since it is such a great read! I really enjoyed the adventure in this story, even though there are kidnappings, a bit of violence and stuff you can’t imagine happening today, but were normal occurrence during this time period.
