★★★★ I was excited to get back to this series and read how the tailsman ring was going to thwart yet another of the St. John men. Chase was stuck with it at the end of the last book, and I think his story was pretty good. He learns and grows a lot in this book which was good for him. Harriet was a strong lead and I truly enjoyed the banter between them. I would love to read more about her family. Wonder if Hawkins ever wrote any of their stories?.. Anyway, I thought this was a good addition to the series. I am looking forward to Marcus' story.. though his is not up next... it looks like Devon's bachelor life is going to be taken down by a Scottish woman! Should be interesting!

Here's the blurb:
Everyone knows that all the members of the St. John family are destined for greatness - all, that is, except the rebellious Chase St. John. Then, as the fates would have it, a lifetime of drinking, gambling and womanising catches up and leads him to a fateful incident which changes his life. Harriet Ward, on the other hand, has always felt the weight of responsibility caring for her mother and two brothers, but drawing the line at marrying a stuffy bore to save her home, she creates an imaginary fiance, Captain John. There is no one more surprised than she when Chase conveniently shows up, wounded by an unknown attacker, to fill the role of her suitor. As they pose as lovers and begin to unravel the mystery of Chase's assailant, they soon realise that their imaginary love has quickly turned into reality.
