BACK COVER COPY FOR GYPSY’S GAME:
Gypsy Lovell stands to inherit an enormous amount of money from a father who never gave her anything except a ridiculous name. Even now, he doesn’t make it easy. A stipulation in the man’s will demands that Gypsy be married in order to claim what is hers.
Desperate for the monetary windfall that could save her mother’s life, Gypsy visits a Christian dating agency, hoping to find a temporary husband—someone easy to handle for the required six months, and easy to get rid of when she no longer needs him.
What she doesn’t know is that Solomon’s Gate is a dating agency with a divine connection. What she finds there may save more than her mother’s life…it could very well change Gypsy’s heart and soul.
Having been abandoned by her father at a young age, Gypsy doesn’t believe becoming serious about a man is worth the time and trouble. So when she needs to marry one, it’s strictly on a temporary basis. Jal Garridan has his reasons for agreeing to marry Gypsy, but none of them leave room for the word “temporary.”
Gypsy starts out tough—sure of what she wants and doesn’t want. Yet, Ms. Latham does a good job in seeing to it she’s not hard. She has a need for her inheritance that has nothing to do with greed. Jal is the perfect gentleman—caring and considerate. And, in my opinion, a bit too perfect, even if he must make Gypsy see that not all men are like her father. But he is a sweetheart.
This is the third novel in Delia Latham’s Solomon’s Gate series in which an angel named Solomon stands ready to assist those involved with the Christian dating service run by Destiny Gallagher. (I reviewed Kylie’s Kiss here.) It was nice to “meet” again the characters from the first two books, including Solomon, who makes his presence known enough times to be fun but not turn the book from a romance to a fantasy. And she didn’t shy away from showing her readers exactly how to accept God’s gift of salvation.
All in all, Gypsy’s Game is well written and an enjoyable read, so if you’re looking for a romance with a touch the angelic supernatural, this is the novel for you.
