Lady Rachel Denby is in need of a husband and a chance encounter with the reserved Lord Arleigh inspires her to offer him an outlandish deal.
He will save her from impending financial doom and she will help him gain his inheritance. All they have to do is marry. It sounds delightfully pragmatic. Yet as they embark upon their matrimonial bliss, they find that being husband and wife is anything but simple. Pleasing the stiff family relations, keeping a nosy sister in check, and dealing with unhelpful solicitors complicates their deal. To make matters worse, there are unplanned feelings growing between them. But the unorthodox Rachel can’t help engaging the aloof Viscount, and his Lordship is certainly not the cold fish he at first appears. Suddenly, the deal they made is far more than just a practical solution to their problems, it’s fast becoming downright dangerous!
This is the second book in The Ladies of Worth series of Georgian romances. It centres on the sister of Lady Rebecca Fairing from Fool Me Twice, and you’ll get to see Caro and Felton again, and let’s not forget the shrewd Lady Etheridge and her wicked wit!
A Dangerous Deal is an appealing Georgian romance that will keep you turning the page. Although it is the second book in a series, it can be read as a standalone. Lady Rachel Denby needs money, and Lord Arleigh has to marry to gain an inheritance. A marriage seems like a good business deal for both. But things aren’t always as they seem. The plot is engaging and true to the period, and the cast of characters is superb. The point of view changes between the characters, but it is not off-putting or confusing. The character development of our two protagonists is a wonderful revelation, as they start out in a cold business deal and grow from that point. Fans of Georgian romances will enjoy this second book in the Ladies of Worth series.
