About this ebook

When a handsome boxer kisses Lady Ellie Swift for good luck during a match, it turns her world upside down. Because the rogue isn’t just anyone...it’s the Devil Marquess returned. Thanks to Hugh Vere, Marquess of Deveril, Ellie learned at an early age that men are more trouble than they’re worth. Now, instead of a husband, she wants to take over her brother’s infamous gambling club—the Raven Club. And apparently the devil wants it, too.

From the moment Hugh sees Ellie again sparks fly, but battle lines have been drawn. Whoever is the most successful overseeing the club in one month’s time will win. And Hugh intends to win. And he intends to stay very close to Ellie to make sure she follows the rules. What he discovers, though, is that Ellie is no longer the sweet girl he knew years ago—and winning won’t be easy. But the nearly combustible chemistry between them is hard to ignore, and soon the club is not the only prize he wants...

When a handsome boxer kisses Lady Ellie Swift for good luck during a match, it turns her world upside down. Because the rogue isn’t just anyone, it’s the Devil Marquis returned. Thanks to Hugh Vere, Marquis of Deveril, Ellie learned several years ago that men can’t be trusted. Now, instead of a husband, she wants to take over her brother’s infamous gambling club—the Raven Club but Hugh also wants to buy the club so whoever is the most successful overseeing the club in one month’s time will win. An engaging read that sparked my interest from the start, this is the second book in the series, it could easily be read on its own, however I loved catching up with Ian & Grace. The attraction is apparent from the start between Hugh & Ellie & the tension does build, but it is the verbal sparring which was hugely entertaining. The road to their HEA isn’t smooth but makes for an enthralling read My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read

The Raven Club, London 1825 For a heartstopping moment, he was inches from her face. "A kiss from a lovely lady for luck, he said, breathing heavily. Before she could blink, those perfect lips pressed against hers. Hot. Swift. Over in seconds as he turned to his opponent. Oh my God. It was the devil returned, as Ellie recognized him." Wowza. Talk about getting my attention as our heroine was masked watching a boxing match. Hugh Vere, Marquess of Deveril had returned from the war and had to take over over the title after the death of his father and brother. But he had no love for the ton and wanted to buy the Raven Club. He loved to box and he wanted to be in charge. But when he sees Ellie again, he soon learns she wants the club even more. The challenge begins. Whoever is the most successful running the club for 30 days gets ownership. Two determined people who have a history together when they were youg that cannot be forgotten or fogiven by Ellie as he broke her heart. But sometimes the heart cannot pull away from what it wants and as these two are around each other, combustible desire is sure to win the day!! Loved this story and always enjoy everything this author pens! I read this through NetGallery

She's fearless. He's predictable. She knows what she wants. He knows how to get it. What happens when these restless hearts collide? Passion. Ellie and Hugh have a history. Unfinished business is about to explode into irresistible attraction. How to Best a Marquess is a seductive duel of hearts. Gabrielle makes spice a sure bet with this dangerously, naughty affair.
