I've read and enjoyed Diane Gaston's two previous books so I had high expectations for this one. While I didn't enjoy it as much it was still a very satisfying read.

The stakes are high in Cyprian Sloane’s latest game--to reform his reputation as a wagerer, womanizer, and worse--and thumb his nose at the father who’s always despised him. The prize is nearly in hand when Sloane encounters seemingly respectable Morgana Hart, a baron’s daughter, who engages in fisticuffs in Hyde Park and embroils hi...more

Diane Gaston is one of those authors that when I’ve finished one of her books, I ask myself why I haven’t read more. It’s not for a lack of want. It’s the usual too-many-books-not-enough-time business that I’m sure a lot of you suffer from too.

Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Twists, turns & subplots fairly predictable with the happy endings. Just what I wanted.
A pleasant enough story, but having read a couple of Diane Gaston's short stories, which were steamy little numbers, I was rather disappointed. The plot premise was a bit silly, but it was quite well-written and the hero and heroine quite likeable.

Genel anlamda beğendiğim bir kitap oldu. Her ne kadar başlarda sıkılsam da konusu sonrada inanılmaz akıcı gitmeye başladı ve heyecanla okudum. Tavsiye ederim eğer tarihi aşk romanlarını seviyorsanız. :)

Predictable, but amusing. Not for a serious read.
