Vice merchant Maxwell Gideon is wickedly handsome, sinfully arrogant, and devilishly ruthless. Rumor has it, his gaming hell has the power to steal souls and grant miracles. Truth is, Max only owns half of The Cloven Hoof. He’d buy out his silent partner if he knew the man’s identity. But it’s hard to focus on business matters when a fallen angel tumbles right into one’s lap…
Miss Bryony Grenville has a well-earned reputation as an unrepentant hoyden. But even the gossipiest of the pinch-faced matrons ruling High Society could never imagine the daughter of a baron secretly financing the ton’s most infamous gambling parlor. Its maddening, sexy proprietor doesn’t suspect a thing… and two can play at temptation!
This is the last book in the Rouges to Riches series, for me this is my first and if you're like me I can read books out of sequence, I know I'm weird.
Bryony Grenville has been investing money and of course this had to be done anonymously, because as we know society looks down on women who have a brain and is much better at business than a man. Her parents despair that she is being left on shelf and are desperate for to marry...but Bryony wants to marry for love.
Maxwell Gideon owns one half of The Cloven Hoof and he wants to buy out the silent partner and purchase some land to extended the club and much to Max's annoyance the land is bought by a anonymous buyer.
I think you have figured it out that Bryony is the silent partner and was able to do this with the help of her brother Heath. Bryony wants to know how Max is able to afford to buy his share and this were Bryony comes up with a plan, which at that time would be dangerous for a lady to be out on her own, so she has a disguise.
Overall this was an enjoyable book and can be read as a standalone.
And for this reason I give 4/5 stars.
The book is available to buy from Amazon UK and all other retailers.
