Sometimes, you’ve got to take a job with the devil to pay the bills...

Too bad I learned too late the devil wears Armani, is the most uptight man in the history of history, and I just signed an unbreakable contract shackling me to his pompous royal side for the summer.

But God, he’s got this British accent that makes my panties melt.

Until the words he says catch up with my brain and make me want to throw one of his precious vases at his head.

One minute we’re fighting—and the next—we can't keep our hands off each other. Because somehow, when Mr. Blue Eyes is kissing me, he makes me forget how much he annoys me.

And that starts a whole new level of complications I. Don’t. Need.

Cuz if you dance with the devil, someone’s gonna end up getting burned… 


With Natalie's mother's medical bills being impossible to manage, Natalie takes a job curating artifacts in England. She was fortunate to find this job, and, not only will she be able to pay the bills, but she will be able to get a jump on her career as an established curator. When she meets Lord Gavin, she is more than drawn to him, despite his buttoned up nature.

However, Natalie has more than enough work to do, as does Lord Gavin, so any attachment either forms with the other will definitely have to sit on the back burner. Also, even though Natalie begins to notice that the handsome Lord Gavin likes her as well, she must contend with his overbearing mother, someone who sees status as the all important factor in any relationship Gavin forms. This certainly leaves Natalie out of the picture.

While the pair work hard to identify and value the multitude of items in the castle, the story flows along with a slowly developed romance. Then, when things finally looked good, there was a wrench thrown in the plans. For a quick royalty romance - rich lord/poor girl fall in love - then this is just the right read.

Many thanks to Entangled and to NetGalley for this ARC for review. This is my honest opinion. 


Magan Vernon has been living off of reader tears since she wrote her first short story in 2004. She now spends her time killing off fictional characters, pretending to plot while she really just watches Netflix, and she tries to do this all while her two young children run amok around her Texas ranch.
