The Devilish Mr. Danvers (Rakes of Fallow Hall #2)
Avon / April 21, 2015 / $5.99 print, $1.99 digital
In a high-stakes wager, The Rakes of Fallow Hall vowed never to marry. Fate, however, will play the final hand in the newest book from USA Today bestselling author Vivienne Lorret.
For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She's inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what's hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He's determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn't careful, he'll claim her heart as well.
Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley—the younger sister of his former fiancée—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can't seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can't help falling in love with her.
With one lord already fallen to love (see The Elusive Lord Everhart), Rafe Danvers and Lord Montwood remain determined to stave off love in Vivienne Lorret's The Devilish Mr. Danvers. For the next year, these two men will do whatever it takes to remain single in order to procure the lofty sum of 10,000 pounds at stake from their wager. But as we know, in our historical romances, it is always those that vow to never love or marry again that fall the hardest. And Rafe Danvers is no exception, though he does make a convincing argument for staying a bachelor. Years ago, he was jilted at the altar by his former fiancée, Ursa Sinclair. Older and wiser, he knows better than to make the same mistake twice, and vows to make all Sinclairs his enemy.
