REVENGE REALLY DOESN’T PAY.

Miles Warren, Lord Garrison, comes from a family of libertines, and he’s the worst of them all—or so society believes. When Miles helps a friend to run away with an heiress, it’s an entertaining way to revenge himself on one of the gossips who slandered him.

Except that he drives off with the wrong woman . . . and as if that wasn’t scandalous enough, he can’t resist stealing a kiss.

Release Date: May 5th, 2015

Review:

This is definitely the most fun I’ve read from Jade!

It’s also the most different from her because it’s a comical! Yes! You read that right, comical!

As you may not know,  many of Jade’s Historical romances lean towards the darker and tortured side of romance with angst and all but this is one heck of a fun read!

Both these characters are smarty pants and scientist in their own right.

Millie Smithson is the daughter of a scientist and wants to control her life on her terms. Not just that but she want to travel, move out of the country and go to London, produce a face cream for women and hold her own bank account. The only thing that stands in the way is her father and…

Their devil’s bargain turns into a slow, sweet, intoxicating seduction. With each passing hour, Helen uncovers Gareth’s secret heartbreak and yet she can’t help but fall for the man who has ruined her. With Helen in his arms, Gareth wonders if he might yet be saved.
