This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
As the captivating Hunt Club series from RITA award finalist Pamela Labud continues, a notorious earl and a brokenhearted young lady are running from love . . . until their foolproof scheme backfires in the most decadent way.
Though he’s fiercely loyal to his friends, Michael Carver has managed to avoid romantic entanglements by cultivating a reputation as a rake and a gambler. Believing himself incapable of intimacy, the Earl of Blandon avoids anything more than lighthearted flirtations or trysts with married women—which leaves more than enough time to slip out into the wilderness for a little fishing. All is well until Michael agrees, as a favor, to keep his best friend’s stubborn yet alluring sister-in-law company.
After one failed engagement, Beatrice Hawkins would rather become a spinster than risk her heart again. Her family, however, is relentless when it comes to finding her a suitable match. So when the roguish earl suggests they join forces to feign courtship and throw everyone off their scent, Beatrice only hopes the ton will take the bait. But at the hunting lodge where Michael takes her to escape prying eyes, Beatrice finds herself lured in by the unexpected charms of a man who has so much love to give—even if he doesn’t know it yet.

Includes a special message from the editor, as well as an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
I enjoyed the book and I loved Michael and Beatrice. They had great chemistry and both had tragedy in their life that shaped them and their hopes for the future. My problem with the book was that it started off great and ended great it was the middle that slowed the story's flow.
I enjoyed the first book in the series and I'm looking forward to the next book.
How to woo a reluctant lady
I have been waiting for this story as I enjoyed the first book. This story is about Michael, who never wants to marry again, and Beatrice, who does not want to marry and lose her independence. Circumstances become such that marrying each other would make the most sense. Michael is encouraged to woo her so that the idea is hers. They finally give into their rising feelings and marry just before things take a bad turn. I could not put down this book, and I highly recommend it.
This book tells the story of Michael, a former soldier and a member of The Hunt Club and his relationship with his friends and enemies. He intends to never fall in love and marry but is obliged by circumstances to offer marriage to his friend Ash, the Duke's sister in law to protect her from an evil suitor. I read this book over the course of one day and my attention was kept the whole time. I was given an advance copy of this book for w,meriting an unbiased review of this book.
