Unabridged audio performed by Mary Jane Wells.
Most debutantes dream of finding a husband. Lady Pandora Ravenel has different plans. The ambitious young beauty would much rather stay at home and plot out her new board game business than take part in the London Season. But one night at a glittering society ball, she’s ensnared in a scandal with a wickedly handsome stranger.
After years of evading marital traps with ease, Gabriel, Lord St. Vincent, has finally been caught-by a rebellious girl who couldn’t be less suitable. In fact, she wants nothing to do with him. But Gabriel finds the high-spirited Pandora irresistible. He’ll do whatever it takes to possess her, even if their marriage of convenience turns out to be the devil’s own bargain. from Goodreads
I was happy to be back with the Ravenel family! Pandora was not one of my favorite characters in the first two books, but she grew on me in this one. I was so impressed that she wanted to be a creative businesswoman and didn’t want any man to take her accomplishments away from her. She was a woman ahead of her time.
Gabriel was fine. I think he appeared in a different series at some point so there were probably more positive feelings to be had for him by those who knew him before. The two of them had me for most of the book, although the last bit dragged for me.
I’m already looking forward to the next in the series. I think these are best read in order.
