The Devil and the Heiress
The Devil and the Heiress | Harper St George
4 posts | 5 read | 2 to read
Sparks fly when a runaway heiress bargains with a devilish rogue to escape a marriage of convenience. No one would guess that beneath Violet Crenshaw's ladylike demeanor lies the heart of a rebel. American heiresses looking to secure English lords must be on their best behavior, but Violet has other plans. She intends to flee London and the marriage her parents have arranged to become a published author--if only the wickedly handsome earl who inspired her most outrageously sinful character didn't insist on coming with her. Christian Halston, Earl of Leigh, has a scheme of his own: escort the surprisingly spirited dollar princess north and use every delicious moment in close quarters to convince Violet to marry him. Christian needs an heiress to rebuild his Scottish estate but the more time he spends with Violet, the more he realizes what he really needs is her--by his side, near his heart, in his bed. Though Christian's burning glances offer unholy temptation, Violet has no intention of surrendering herself or her newfound freedom in a permanent deal with the devil. It's going to take more than pretty words to prove this fortune hunter's love is true....

I devoured this book! I love the traveling trope. It pulled at all my emotions. Better than her first novel.

A forced proximity/fake relationship historical romance featuring an American heiress living in London and the handsome Earl of Leigh. The fake marriage gave Violet and Christian plenty of time to truly fall for one another. They‘re definitely more progressive than most of the others during this time and I loved reading about how a headstrong, independent gal was willing to risk her social standing in order to stay true to herself. So delightful!

I loved watching the feelings evolve between Violet and Christian. I loved his empowerment of her and the ways that she soothed his battered heart and dug her way beneath his armor. This wonderful story has so many of my favorite romance tropes: roadtrip, forced proximity, courageous rescue, reforming the rake, writer heroine. The author‘s meticulous research into the rights and situations of 19th century women is evident on every single page.
