I love when a book screams my name and I’m not disappointed that I bought it! Set in the past, this book tells the story of a gypsy girl named Zora and Lord James (Whit), the Earl of Whitney. Whit is part of a group of friends that call themselves Hellraisers. Each friend is of high society, and likes to make mischief and mayhem. When they stumble upon a gypsy camp, and Whit finds Zora, who is to read his tarot cards. There, an instant connection forms between the two. Soon afterwards the group of friends find themselves making a deal with the devil. Each deal is for their own personal gain. Zora soon finds that is she part of the deal Whit made with the devil and now she must find the strength to help Whit. This book is wonderfully written. So much so that I didn’t want to put it down. I love the characters, the adventure, and the way the scenes where described. I can’t wait for the next book!
James Sherbourne, Earl of Whitney, is a gambling man. Not for the money. But for the thrill, the danger – and the company: Whit has become one of the infamous Hellraisers, losing himself in the chase for adventure and pleasure with his four closest friends. Which was how Whit found himself in a gypsy encampment, betting against a lovely Romani girl. Zora Grey’s smoky voice and sharp tongue entrance Whit nearly as much as her clever hands – watching them handle cards inspires thoughts of another kind. Zora can’t explain her attraction to the careless blue-eyed Whit. She also can’t stop him and his Hellraisers from a fiendish curse: the power to grant their own hearts’ desires, to chase their pleasures from the merely debauched to the truly diabolical. And if Zora can’t save Whit, she still has to escape him.
