5* Review & Giveaway! The Devilish Mr. Danvers by @VivLorret @TastyBookTours

The Devilish Mr. Danvers
The Rakes of Fallow Hall # 2
By: Vivienne Lorret  
Releasing April 21, 2015
Avon Impulse

For the first time in her life, Hedley Sinclair holds the keys to her own future. She’s inherited the crumbling Greyson Park, but the disrepair does nothing to dissuade her. No one will ever lock her up again or attempt to take away what’s hers. No one except Rafe Danvers—the charming, fiendish man from Fallow Hall. He’s determined to claim Greyson Park, but if Hedley isn’t careful, he’ll claim her heart as well.

Rafe has every intention of ridding Greyson Park of the conniving Sinclairs, once and for all. The last thing he expects is to find the beguiling Hedley Sinclair—the younger sister of his former fiancée—standing in his way. With drastic measures called for, he plans to marry her off in order to regain control of the estate. The only trouble is, he can’t seem to stop seducing her. Even worse, he can’t help falling in love with her.

Review- 5 Stars
This book was great! The story was unique and I loved all of the characters (well, except for the ones I was supposed to hate.). Maybe I should have figured it out sooner, but I didn’t catch on to the mysterious treasure until it was revealed. I felt the author did a great job of keeping me guessing.
Hedley is a pretty fascinating character. I can’t imagine that anyone who grew up the way she did would turn out so strong and resourceful, but the author made me believe it. I so wanted to be her friend, to right the wrongs done to her, and give her the attention and affection she deserved. She is a mix of stubborn wit and broken fear, that made me laugh and tugged on my heartstrings,
Rafe. That man blows heat right off of the pages to burn your skin. He’s good and kind but also an arrogant, trampling jerk (granted some of that attitude is bred from being left at the altar and finding out that his runaway fiance never really cared for him, but still...). Until he meets Hedley. She not only spikes his blood pressure with her curves, he finds himself admiring her strength and she whittles her way under his hard exterior bringing out that softer, protective side.
Both Hedley and Rafe are after the same thing and are at odds to gain it. However, a common enemy brings them together and the closer they get the more likely it is that the passion between them will explode. The sexual tension between these two is seriously palpable.
The other occupants of Fallow Hall are a hoot and I enjoyed getting to know them. I’m hooked on the series and the previous one that this is a spinoff of. I’ll be adding those to my kindle and be lost in reading them in no time!
A fun and intriguing story, I give it 5 historical stars.
