There's nothing I adore and love more then a a self-made man as a hero in HRs, and the charming rouge that is Roman Merrick stole me heart with a smile and wink. Behind his mask lays a man whose seen darkness and death and fights it with ruthlessness hiding a gentle soul deep down. Charlotte is a cold ice queen, fighting off sharp dragger like words as she holds her head up high as her father flushes all her family, her sister and her chances along with their family money down the drain. Charlotte tries to turn the other cheek hoping the marry well to protect her sister, hiding a free spirit who longs to be free. In Roman who wins her in a bet, her father stupidly lost, he brings her out of her shell, and lets her run wild in free. The chess match that plays between the is hot but also gentle and engaging. I did find the character of Charlotte background more open then that of Roman whose at times seem to be shimmed over, and not given much thought. Still Anne Mallory wrote such an amazing book, even the small flaws couldn't hold up to the overall amazing story One Night is Never Enough is.
