Losing a bet has never been more exciting. Lady Anne Lindsey lost a bet. Oh… how she wishes it were of the monetary variety. Instead, she has to do a favour that will take her far from London, out in the country, and into the house of a man she loathes just as much as she is desperately attracted to him. Guy’s the first man who’d been able to banish the darkness that haunts her, but she knows that a rogue can’t be trusted.
Guy Elkin is the new Viscount of Yapperts. He has a desire: To transform the tired looking country house into something just as breathtaking as his clubs back in London, and he knows just the woman to recruit for help. Lady Anne Lindsey. He has plans for beautiful Lady Lindsey that go beyond picking curtains and couches and is sure he’ll have her bedded in weeks…But what Guy didn’t know was he’d also have her wedded! When a slip of the tongue finds these two facing the priest, it’ll take more than the attraction for them to find their happily ever after. And can Anne truly escape the dark secret that follows her.

Guy, Anne warned. She skipped and hopped until she was at his side.
I was actually really looking forward to this story. But I was a little disappointed. Lady Anne Lindsey was born a lady but then it was robbed from her from her own family. But she resorted to her position a few books ago. So, I was very interested in whom she falls in love with and how it happens.
This wasn’t the worse book that I’ve ever read but it wasn’t that great either. I thought that it was just meh! There wasn’t anything amazing to write home about. It was a mildly entertaining read, it was a quick read without much extra to it. I didn’t think that there was enough to the characters back story, yes, we’ve seen them before but there wasn’t a lot known about each of the main characters. I was looking for a little more information really. All in all, I had found that both plot and character was lacking.
