Plot synopsis: Harriet needs to be married before x birthday or she loses her birthright. She propositions Roan because she thinks she can help him out. But in the end, he has gone along for his own reasons. He doesn't need her help or money. Of course, they discover that they really love each other and live happily ever after.
As most of the other reviews here, I had a few basic problems with this book. The first is, although from the beginning, I was certain that Roan had feelings for Harriet, I never quite understood WHY. I mean she was either very cool or a total beyotch to him! A hint into his perspective would have helped a lot both in plausibily and in fleshing out Harriet's character.
Harriet is desparate to keep her familiy home, but you're not clued into WHY until very late in the story. It makes her come across as cold and challenging.
And the wedding night is completely misplaced. I know there has to be a certain amount of sex in these presents books, but I don't think this was the place for it.
Overall, though, I did like the story, and the growth of the characters. I would read something by this author again.
