Shelves: romance-historical , read , own-a-copy So next up with the Talisman ring is Brandon St. John and no little ring is going to get him tied in knots or tie the knot with any lady. He is after all strictly a two week love and leave them type of guy.
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. Those were funny scenes in the book. 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 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. 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. 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 heroine was a hit or miss with me. The first half of the book, she was cute and sassy 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. 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.
