Review & Giveaway: The Devil and the Heiress by Harper St. George

The Devil and the Heiress by Harper St. George

Publication Date: June 29, 2021
Berkley Publishing

Series: The Gilded Age Heiresses, Book 2
Genre: Historical Romance

Sparks fly when a runaway heiress bargains with a devilish rogue to escape a marriage of convenience.

No one would guess that beneath Violet Crenshaw's ladylike demeanor lies the heart of a rebel. American heiresses looking to secure English lords must be on their best behavior, but Violet has other plans. She intends to flee London and the marriage her parents have arranged to become a published author--if only the wickedly handsome earl who inspired her most outrageously sinful character didn't insist on coming with her.

Christian Halston, Earl of Leigh, has a scheme of his own: escort the surprisingly spirited dollar princess north and use every delicious moment in close quarters to convince Violet to marry him. Christian needs an heiress to rebuild his Scottish estate but the more time he spends with Violet, the more he realizes what he really needs is her--by his side, near his heart, in his bed.

Though Christian's burning glances offer unholy temptation, Violet has no intention of surrendering herself or her newfound freedom in a permanent deal with the devil. It's going to take more than pretty words to prove this fortune hunter's love is true...

The Devil and the Heiress is another hit for Author Harper St. George!

Like Julia Roberts in My Best Friend's Wedding (which I adore), I used to not be into the "icky love stuff" BUT authors like Mimi Matthews and Harper St. George have completely changed that! Harper is definitely a new auto-buy author for me.

Hot off the heels of her amazing debut, Harper returns with an undeniably fabulous story featuring Violet, who is sister to August from The Heiress Gets a Duke (also highly recommended). Now that August has been married off, it's now Violet's turn, much to her dismay. She wants to be a writer and not pawned off to a man she does not live but her father needs connections for his business and his needs prevail, as they often did at that time. I will say that when reading books like this it gets my rage just exploding! It kills me that women were just commodities back then - to be bartered and traded and used as bargaining chips to further men's ambitions.

Enter Christian Halston. Swoooooon is the correct way to feel when he pops on stage. His family's debts have left him short with money and unable to keep up his estate so he is looking for a wife that will come with an inheritance. He's met Violet a few times and finds her intriguing, so she would be the most perfect match.

When Violet hears that her father has agreed to marry her to a vile man (oh how I wanted to jump into the pages and throttle him!), she decides to make a break for it. And I'm like " YES, girl..RUN!"

Christian of course is eager to help her escape, but not for the reasons she believes. What follows...well, you will just have to read it and see! Bwahahaha!

What I can tell you is that it's a hell of a, sexy, and the chemistry between Christian and Violet is off the charts!

It's the perfect read for the beach or pool, at least the heat can hide your hot flashes :) You seriously should pick this series up!
