This is book 1 in the Men of Fortune series which was previously published in A Very Scandalous Holiday Anthology.
Sidony Harbeck can't believe that Hale Martin is finally back. After waiting for him for three years, he expects her to say yes to his marriage proposal. How can Sidony say yes to a man that couldn't even write one letter to her the whole time he was gone?
Captain Hale Martin is back to claim Sidony for his wife. When she says no to his proposal, he reverts to their childhood games of placing bets with each other.
Can he convience her to marry him in three days or will he have to walk out of her life forever?
This was a very quick read. The story was enjoyable but it didn't have the depth that some writers have with short stories.
Since this was the first book by this author that I have read, it gave me a taste of her writing style. I am intrigued enough to put the next book in the series on my to-read list. The next book in the series is Falling for the Pirate which comes out on July 21.
You can get this book at Amazon and Barnes & Noble.
