She'd always intended to make amends someday

Now that day had dawned sooner than she'd expected. And Jared Faulkner was demanding a reckoning.

Purdey wasn't proud of the way she'd treated Jared in the past, even though at the time she could see no real alternative.

But it was a fearful price Jared wanted to extract from her-far greater than she'd expected to pay. And just as

Yay! I finally broke my HP dry streak.

If you're in the mood for a snobby alpha hero behaving badly who gets a pretty fair comeuppance from the horribly misjudged and mistreated virgin, this is a great one.

Perdita (Perdy) is 19 when the book opens. Her life had taken a big turn 8 years before when her father had died in a car accident. Her pregnant mother then delivered prematurely and the child was blind. She and her mom had to deal with reduced circumstance and sacrifice a lot to send the broth

2.5 stars

This could have been 5 stars, but the ending just closed too quickly and the hero did not suffer enough. But, there were some absolutely incredible scenes.

dats how fairy tales shud be like! from rags to riches, the heroine had her brand of magic when jared faulkner proposed her 35000pounds to stop seeing his nephew! i remember reading dat book as a teenager but i did not remember the book's name. so it was a pleasure to read it again, after like ten years! to come back to the story, purdey was stunning and she turned heads wherever she went. jared was no exception to this! yet, he thought he was different from the other besotted fools bcoz he saw ...more
4.5 stars

There are asshole heroes and then there are ASSHOLE heroes. Jared fits the latter category perfectly. He was so mean and rude to Purdey; calling her a little bitch, gold digging slut and con artist (not all in one sitting though, thankfully). Jared was such an ass, but I loved it because underneath all the contempt you knew he wanted Purdey despite himself. Seething, pent-up desire...

So the two had strong chemistry between them. The resulting banter was delightful. Purdey, of course, w

He was like the scum at the bottom of a pond at the beginning of the story so he had no other way but to go up and improve. But boy, the transformation took FOREVER.

I loved Purdey. You don't meet a lot of girls like her in this day and age in romance novels. I loved that she lived a little better than hands to mouth basically and saved all her money to pay him back.

Well if I was her I would have had a restraining order against him. He goes into her room in the night forces himself on her...omg what kind of an asshole does that??? if she had a chance it was a snowball chance in hell. I did not like him at all. He was the one who gave her the money and offered it to her, then the bastard then makes her pay for it over and over. He wants to get her in bed not because he loves and respects her but for revenge and lust. It would have been ok to me if he had ...more
