★★★★ This is the first book in the Carhart Series, and also the first book I have read by this author. I quite enjoyed it. Gareth is a stiff, brooding, factual kind of man. While Jenny is open and free. I think they had wonderful chemistry right from the beginning. Ned - Gareth's cousin.. he was a bit of a whiner at times.. but even he turned out alright in my eyes. There was one point where Gareth says something to Jenny that I felt was kinda out of character for him.. didn't think he would have thought that.. but.. it wasn't a deal breaker for me.
I caught myself chuckling out loud and I often put my duties off to get back to reading.. all in all a good read and an author I am going to read more from!
Here's the blurb:
"She was his last chance for a future of happiness..."A gifted fortune-teller from a humble background, Jenny can make even the most sophisticated skeptic believe her predictions simply by batting her smoky eyelashes.

"He just didn't know it yet"
Broodingly handsome, Gareth is scandalized to discover his cousin has fallen under the spell of "Madame Esmerelda," and vows to prove Jenny a fraud. But his unexpected attraction to the fiery enchantress defies logic. Jenny disrupts every facet of Gareth's calculated plan--until he can't decide whether to seduce her or ruin her. Now, as they engage in a passionate battle of wills, two lonely souls must choose between everything they "know."..and the boundless possibilities of love.
