(The Ravenels #6)
ONE OF OPRAH MAG’S BEST ROMANCES OF 2020!
Everything has a price . . .
Railway magnate Tom Severin is wealthy and powerful enough to satisfy any desire as soon as it arises. Anything—or anyone—is his for the asking. It should be simple to find the perfect wife—and from his first glimpse of Lady Cassandra Ravenel, he’s determined to have her. But the beautiful and quick-witted Cassandra is equally determined to marry for love—the one thing he can’t give.
Everything except her . . .
Severin is the most compelling and attractive man Cassandra has ever met, even if his heart is frozen. But she has no interest in living in the fast-paced world of a ruthless man who always plays to win.
When a newfound enemy nearly destroys Cassandra’s reputation, Severin seizes the opportunity he’s been waiting for. As always, he gets what he wants—or does he? There’s one lesson Tom Severin has yet to learn from his new bride:
Never underestimate a Ravenel.
The chase for Cassandra’s hand may be over. But the chase for her heart has only just begun . .
Cassandra is a society woman who is desired by many men but the one man, Tom Severin, who has piqued her interest is someone she wouldn’t marry. She wants to marry for love and he is self-proclaimed as being incapable of loving someone.
Tom wants Cassandra but is willing to walk away because he wants her to have the love match she so seeks. But things turn ugly when one of her suitors tries to tarnish her reputation. When Tom catches wind of this he buys the newspaper to keep it from printing false claims about her.
That’s an over the top reaction to save a women’s reputation. Let’s be serious here . . . Tom is in love with her he’s just unwilling to admit it.
I loved that Cassandra has a love of dogs, books, and an orphaned boy, Basil. And through her influence, Tom grows a fondness for these things too. Okay, maybe, not dogs but for Basil and books.
