Then he is on to greener bored-but-married-society ladies, it is his motto. But Chase his beloved younger brother has got himself in a mess and about to pop the question to a lady of questionable nature.
A Ms Verena Westforth has managed to get Chase so worked up, he has a special license in his pocket, so Brandon with the backing of all his brothers will go forth and pay her off. After all a fast lady like her is always looking for a quick quid to ensure her way of life.
Now I must say, Verena's butler, Herberts, almost stole the entire show with his antics. You know what kind of quality you are getting when you get your staff from The Society for Wayward Women's Servant Referral Service and Herbert was hilarious, as Verena constantly has to remind him that no we don't pickpocket our guests and no we don't try on their coats after we remove them. Those were funny scenes in the book. But back to Brandon's buy off of Verena. Once Brandon gets there, he acknowledges that Verena is attractive in a floosy kind of way, I mean gold hair and violet eyes are common, as well as dangerous curves So Verena takes Brandon's money after she negotiates it up to 5,, she ain't stupid.
The she proceeds to make a mockery of Brandon as she has the check made into a table center piece and has a big party so everybody can see Brandon's name on the check. Then if that isn't enough, she has it made into a necklace with his signature boldly displayed.
Brandon for his part, didn't find the necklace as shocking as he should have. As a matter of fact, he liked it all to well. He found out after the fact that his brother Chase had been firmly turned down two days before he had made his grand payoff gesture.
So he sets out to show Verena who is boss and storms over to her house to make her pay with his kisses. He can give her two weeks, even though she doesn't meet his criteria of being married, his nether regions are in revolt and will fall off if him and his buddies don't get in with Verena. It was a cute read and I had a couple of laugh out load moments as Brandon figured out how to deal with Herbert and his pickpocket ways. Jun 12, Lorka rated it really liked it. Although most of the other books in this series landed on my 5-star Keeper Shelf, this one did not.
It was still fun to read, but it did reach a certain level of ridiculous eye-roll worthiness that I know I would not find myself grabbing it to read again. The hero Brandon was enjoyable to read, although I don't think there was as much focus on his Talisman Ring in this book, as there was with the others.
The heroine was a hit or miss with me. The first half of the book, she was cute and sassy wi Although most of the other books in this series landed on my 5-star Keeper Shelf, this one did not. The first half of the book, she was cute and sassy with the hero, so that was fun to read, but she was also extremely stubborn when it came to her parents and that she always needed to keep moving around to avoid people from recognizing her.
So her parents were charlatans, con artists, big deal. They didn't even live in the same country as her The way the missing list wrapped up the shooting, who the bad guys were, etc was silly in my opinion. But it was fun to read. I forgot one Ew moment The morning after their first night together, the hero wakes up with a fever, sore throat and no voice from standing in the rain too long and the heroine thought he was just too irresistible in his cuteness and proceeded to kiss all over him anyways.

Verena considering Chase no more than a good friend, is outraged that his brother would try to buy her off to never see him again. Verena wanting to play a trick on Brandon and to teach him a lesson, takes his five thousand pound note and comes up with a plan to teach the arrogant St John a lesson or two. With Verena's brother in town and visiting and knowing that he is being blackmailed, Verena was tempted a little to cash it in, but knowing she can find another way to help her brother comes up with a way to trick Brandon.
Brandon when finding out the truth from his brother, that she hadn't accepted his proposal was amused by Verena's hairbrained plot.
He finds her enchanting, and like no other woman he has ever encountered. When his close friends come to him with a dangerous plot that could endanger many lives, he decides to help him out. Apparently there is this important list and he believes is in Verena's possession and he must find it or those after it that are very dangerous, will kill many to get it.
