Earl of Davenport
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The Devil of Davenport is in need of a bride. Everyone knows the wicked earl is looking to wed, but only his childhood friend, Anne, knows his secret. Despite what society believes, he's not a devil--not really. Not at all. Of course, he's no saint either. He's a man. One she hopes will solve all her family's financial woes by marrying her eldest sister, the only sibling not tainted by scandal.
But the earl has other plans. While Anne's sister is the safe choice, she's not the one who makes his pulse race. There's only one who can tame his wicked ways, but choosing Anne will thrust her into the type of scandal she's tried so hard to avoid. Can a devil like him ever win an angel?
I liked the story and the characters of this book. Anne is independent and knows what needs to be done. She is soft hearted and is willing to sacrifice for her family, even though, they never truly accepted her because of her being born on the wrong side of the blanket. The Earl has always done every thing to prove his parents right when they called him a little devil. Now, that Fredrick is Earl, he needs a wife, but Anne's offer of her sister Claire, makes him decide that he needs the fire that is Anne. I felt that the story should have been longer to give more depth to the characters, and a better way for the Earl to actually fall in love.
