My Rating ~ 2 bites

Leo Bailey was born to a saddle maker, but he has bigger plans for himself. Even though the aristocracy turns down their collective nose at a commoner that doesn’t stop Leo from making money hand-over-fist in an effort to buy his way into the elite crowd. Once he’s obscenely rich all he needs to do his buy himself a titled wife. The Honorable Anne Hartfield, the daughter of an impoverished baron, is who he chooses. He rushes the marriage and afterwards, as he gets to know her better, he falls in love. But how will she react when she finds out, in order to make even more money, he made a deal with the devil?

This book started out with such promise. A man who has an uncanny money sense, making a fortune in the Market, who along with his Hellraiser friends, decides to make  a deal with the devil in order to make even more money who falls in love with the woman he buys to be his wife. Their love story alongside his ego-driven plans make for an interesting tale. However, it drags on in parts, Leo is mostly unlikeable, and the paranormal stuff that should have been fascinating and exciting, falls flat. Overall, a disappointing read.
