This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
It was supposed to be a marriage of convenience. Emilia McDowell needs to marry in order to receive her inheritance. Viscount "Devil" Dare needs to secure his mother and sisters' financial future before he dies of consumption. What could possibly go wrong?

A lot it seems. Rice's fifth offering in her Unexpected Magic series features plenty of romance along with a healthy dose of intrigue and misunderstandings. A dying man and a woman with a gift for healing seem to be a perfect match, if only he didn't believe in the unusual and if the using of her gift didn't risk her own life.

Another engaging couple, another interesting story. I continue to enjoy this series. Recommended.

Book description
A dying viscount, a bookish botanist, and a marriage of convenience that becomes. . . inconvenient. . .

Diagnosed with consumption, Viscount "Devil" Dare knows his days are numbered. With his greedy cousin scheming to throw Dare’s mother and sisters out of their home after his death, he can hardly refuse a mysterious lady’s solution—wedding vows. Her lands would ensure his industrial success—and secure the future for those he loves.

Bookish botanist Emilia McDowell desperately needs the land she will inherit once she marries. Her gift for the healing arts requires growing and experimenting with herbs if she’s to save lives. When she learns that her funds would benefit handsome Lord Dare, who is said to be dying, she offers a marriage of convenience.

But if Emilia touches Dare, her dangerous healing gift could kill her. As they learn to love under trying circumstances, Emilia longs to find the courage to be a true wife—until she discovers Dare's plans for her inheritance. Can love and marriage surmount death and betrayal?
