Summary

The first in a new regency romance series about two feuding families, and reunited childhood enemies whose hatred turns to love.

Maddie Montgomery’s family is in debt, and her hope rests on the rival Davies clan missing their yearly “pledge of goodwill", ceding the land that separates their estates. With Maddie’s teenage nemesis, Gryffud “Gryff” Davies, Earl of Powys, away, hope is in reach. But then Gryff shows up on a horse and is stunned that the tomboy he once teased is now a woman. 

When Gryff and Maddie discover contraband on their land, they realize it can benefit both families. But they’ve also uncovered a dangerous plot, and they need to work together to get out alive. Soon their hatred for each other starts to feel more like attraction.  

Kate Bateman brings crackling banter, steamy romance, and a dash of adventure into the first book in the Ruthless Rivals series.

A Reckless Match

Not your ordinary regency romance. This one is filled with angst, action, and of course a centuries old rivalry. I listened to the audiobook because I really like Kate Bateman's writing especially when Beverly A. Crick is matched as the narrator! I've never heard Beverly do anything other than a spectacular job! Book 2 isn't out yet, but to be released at the end of May! I look forward to reading that one as well.😍
