Sigh, I enjoyed this one but I wanted more from this story - more about the main characters, more detail.
It’s like looking at two houses - on one side you’ve got your basic no-frills, no bells and whistles house. Similar to how most every effing house in the Las Vegas area looks exactly the same, regarding interior. Then on the other hand you’ve got a Victorian era home, with character and richly layered history. This was unfortunately one of the first, unfortunate because I really could have enjoyed this one so, so much more, but it kept feeling that the story was missing too much.

Ash Hawkins, Duke of Buckley, no more wants to marry than he wants a stick in his eye. As the owner of a gaming hell, he is all too aware the odds of a happy marriage are against him. But raising his three rebellious wards alone is proving more than he can handle. He needs to find someone who stands to benefit from a marriage of convenience as much as he does. Someone logical, clinical, and rational. And in a stroke of luck, he quite literally stumbles over just such a woman.
After years of ridicule for being more interested in bugs than boys, Bronwyn has accepted that she’ll never marry for love. Her parents, however, are threatening to find her a husband. Bronwyn doesn’t need any scientific research to show her Ash has secrets. But his proposal would give her the freedom to continue her entomology research and perhaps finally get published. Just as long as she can keep her mind on her work and off his piercing eyes, broad shoulders, and wicked, wicked tongue.
