Adair Thorne has just watched his gaming-hell dream disappear into a blaze of fire and ash, and he’s certain that his competitors, the Killorans, are behind it. His fury and passion burn even hotter when he meets Cleopatra Killoran, a tart-mouthed vixen who mocks him at every turn. If she were anyone else but the enemy, she’d ignite a desire in him that would be impossible to control.
No one can make Cleopatra do anything. That said, she’ll do whatever it takes to protect her siblings―even if that means being sponsored by their rivals for a season in order to land a noble husband. But she will not allow her head to be turned by the infuriating and darkly handsome Adair Thorne.
There’s only one thing that threatens the rules of the game: Cleopatra’s secret. It could unravel the families’ tenuous truce and shatter the unpredictably sinful romance mounting between the hellion…and a scoundrel who could pass for the devil himself.
This is the first book in Christi's new series Wicked Wallflowers and it follows on from The Sinful Brides. In this book we are following Adair Thorne and Cleopatra Killoran.
For me this was a fantastic book, even though this is a love story, it was more than that. The story was more about trust and honesty. At first Adair and Cleopatra are enemies well they do come from rival families, at first I thought I wouldn't like either Cleo or Adair, but then Christi worked her magic and by the end I loved them.
It was also lovely getting to know Cleo's family, but they did stay in the background without taking over from the main characters.
If you are fan of Christi's books then you will love this book. But if you are new to her books, then you are in for a real treat.
I give this book 5/5 stars and I can highly recommend it.
This book is on pre-order at Amazon and is released on 3rd April.
I received this complementary copy in return for a honest review.
