Love and Other Disasters eBook, Scandalous Brides #3
Once a rake, always a rake!
Third son. The spare’s spare. That is the whole of it, where Jasper Sweet is concerned, disregarded by his late father and overlooked by his elder brothers. Everything and everyone he’s ever cared for inevitably going to someone else. There’s little point to putting his heart on the line, so a rake is all he’ll ever be. A disgruntled one, at the moment—forced to put his family’s financial struggles before his own and endure a summer at their country estate with naught but his brother’s young sons for company.
And the boys’ governess. An uptight, argumentative spinster who’s vexed him at every turn from the moment she entered his brother’s employ. A servant who is hardly worthy of his notice.
Until he discovers Sophie Radcliffe is not at all what she seems.
Getting closer to the woman isn’t wise, but when she deigns to help him with a scandalous scheme to refill his coffers, he can scarcely resist. And in fact, he doesn’t. In Sophie, he’s found a woman of similar mind, similar ambition…similar passion.
As summer at Ravenswood Estate rolls on, and Sophie and Jasper grow ever closer, the formerly unrepentant rake begins to glimpse a future for himself he’d previously never considered. But he should have known better.
For yet again, what once was briefly his, is soon coveted by another.
