Mary slipped her hand into the crook of Alexandra’s arm. “He’s a bit rough around the edges, I’d say,” she whispered, turning to watch him. “But from where I sit… he’d be well worth taming!”
I couldn’t agree more!
Sylas Rutledge is a reformed gambler who is well worth the trouble of smoothing those rough edges as far as I'm concerned. Alexandra Jamison isn't so sure she agrees. Sylas doesn't fit into the Southern gentleman mold she is used to. But after being shoved out from the comfort of her family and society because of her own choices that may seem just as reckless to those who know her, she's left without much choice but to help him. Though it could have ended up to be more than she bargained for, turns into
a lesson in forgiveness that she could never regret. And Sylas is definitely a prize worth winning.
