He drives a hard bargain, but the pleasure is all hers.

London financier Rafe Pendragon has a reputation for ruthlessness, and exotic beauty Julianna Hawthorne is determined to clear the debt her brother owes him. Captivated by Rafe’s virile good looks, weakened by his intoxicating mix of danger and sensuality, Julianna boldly agrees to Rafe’s shocking terms: six months as his mistress. As Rafe’s intense green eyes pierce her body and set it afire, Julianna can only imagine what emotions his kiss may unleash.

Surrendering to the pleasures of seduction and carnal delight, Rafe never anticipated that love would be the cost of his bargain. When he realizes that a vindictive enemy may harm Julianna should their clandestine liaison be exposed, Rafe must choose between loving her and protecting her. To save his fair mistress, Rafe must risk what he has already lost: his heart.

MY THOUGHTS

TIMES READ

I have read this multiple times in the last 6 years.

WHEN I FIRST READ

I read this in paperback (I have a copy back in the Philippines) around 2008 or 2009.

ORIGINAL REVIEW

Read my first review here (this is also a re-read review)

WHAT I REMEMBER

I remember a lady bargaining her virtue to the financier Rafe Pendragon and the story was (and still is) sizzling.  I have also read multiple books by Tracy Anne Warren that mention Rafe Pendragon as the investor that helped a few heroes in Warren’s other books become rich (see Wicked Delights of a Bridal Bed)

WHY I WANTED TO RE-READ

Because I wanted to go back and read a sizzling historical romance (without the erotica).

HOW I FELT AFTER RE-READING

I felt the same.  A few parts brought me to tears (again) and the romance still worked for me.  However, I hated Rafe a little after he broke things off with Lady Julianna Hawthorne.  I knew that he had a valid reason for it but now, I did not find what he did forgivable.  I still like him as a hero but now, I see this aspect of his personality in a different light.

WOULD I RE-READ THIS BOOK AGAIN

Definitely!  As with most of my favorite books, I reread them every few years or so,
