Blurb:  With her pale hair and slim figure, Olivia Donovan looks as fragile as fine china, and has been treated as such by her sisters ever since a childhood bout with malaria. But beneath her delicate facade, Olivia guards a bold, independent spirit and the kind of passionate desires proper young ladies must never confess...

It was a reckless wager, and one Max couldn't resist: seduce the alluring Olivia or forfeit part of his fortune. Yet the wild, soon-to-be Duke never imagined he'd fall in love with this innocent beauty. Nor could he have guessed that a dangerously unpredictable rival would set out to destroy them both. Now, Max must beat a Madman at his own twisted game-or forever lose the only woman to have ever won his heart.

Review: Emotionally touching.

Check out the first line. "She was an angel." I have to tell you that while there is nothing really special about those words they grabbed me and sank their claws in. But get a few lines later when you find out that  " woman had ever frozen him in place before..." and I was a total goner :)

There were so many things that I loved about this story. Weakness, lust, strength, passion. Everything was here in abundance and wrapped up so beautifully that I wasn't sure I would make it through without crying.

A winner and then some :)
