The Ruin of a Rogue by Miranda Neville - Blurb, Teaser, & Giveaway!

I originally signed up to review Miranda Neville's newest book, The Ruin of a Rogue, but after a snafu with Edelweiss, I thought it would be better for me to have a promo stop instead. I was disappointed because I love to read and review books for blog tours, but at that point, I hadn't been approved to download it and didn't know if I would be. Long story short, I was approved and I still want to read/review it, so keep an eye out for that post in a week or two. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy my promo stop. I have a blurb, a teaser, AND a giveaway hosted by the lovely Miranda.

The Ruin of a Rogue
by Miranda Neville
 
MARCUS LITHGOW is the wastrel son of a worthless father. Only his well born mother gave him any pretense of respectability and this he squandered with his hellraising antics. Now, with an unexpected title and the mantle of responsibility nearly choking him, Marcus returns to England--titled, destitute, and in need of a wife.
 
Anne Brotherton is sick of running into fortune hunters wherever she turns, and is not about to fall for so obvious a one as Marcus Lithgow. Howeve,r it doesn't mean he can't be useful to her. Association with him will bring scandal down upon her head, and certainly chase of the boringly respectable men her guardians wish her to wed. As long as she keeps her heart to herself, what's the harm in a bit of fun?
 
But Anne didn't count how seductive Marcus's world--and the man himself--could be. As for Marcus, what started as a means to an end is now the only possible option...because the one thing this gambler can't afford to lose is his heart.

"Did he ever kiss you?”

 “No.” The answer was more a breath than a word. Her eyes grew large and lovely and her lips parted, just enough to emit a breath.  Gently he cupped her cheek. He lowered his head and brought his mouth to hers. He found her as pliant yet firm as he’d suspected, and every bit as sweet. In her inexperienced way she kissed him back.  It wasn’t much of a kiss, little more than a mingling of breath, and he wanted more. His fingers found the wild pulse at her temple, threaded into the hair she wore firmly coiled about her head. Closing his eyes, he let her scent and taste and the texture of her lips wash over him. She felt clean and pure. He wanted to pull her into his arms, to discover the body hidden by ill-fitting layers of wool, and most of all to kiss her properly, until she was gasping and crying out for more.

Her untouched enthusiasm touched him, and shamed him too. A man like Marcus Lithgow had no business with this artless girl.

Too bad. He needed her and he couldn’t afford scruples.
