Summary

When you gamble at love...

When Hugh Deveraux discovers his newly inherited earldom is bankrupt, he sets about rebuilding the family fortune - in the gaming hells of London. But the most daring wager he takes isn’t at cards. A wealthy tradesman makes a tantalizing offer: marry the man’s spinster daughter and Hugh’s debts will be paid and his fortune made. The only catch is that she must never know about their agreement....

You risk losing your heart...

Heiress Eliza Cross has given up hope of marriage until she meets the impossibly handsome Earl of Hastings, her father’s new business partner. The earl is everything a gentleman should be, and is boldly attentive to her. It doesn’t take long for Eliza to lose her heart and marry him.

But when Eliza discovers that there is more to the man she loves - and to her marriage - her trust is shattered. And it will take all of Hugh’s power to prove that now his words of love are real....

heartwarming love story: shy,plain girl vindicated

Excellent!
Well written and constructed. Surprising depth of characters for the genre, quite realistic, humane, and likeable. No unnecessary, over the top drama. Erotic scenes tastefully done, not too graphic or unnecessarily „innovative“. Interesting conflicts of conscience and good historical context.

I fell in love with Hugh, he is the perfect romantic hero, thoughtful, responsible, kind, beautiful, loving and a wonderful lover. Sigh!

Wish the book was three times as long so I could have learned more details and could have stayed in Eliza and Hugh‘s world longer.

Very very entertaining

C Linden is one of the best at creating magnetic stories. Like the first book in this series, I was caught in the very beginning and remained enthralled throughout the whole book. Never once, did I look to see how many more chapters were left. The characters, while strong and independent, were so well developed that I couldn't wait to see what happened next. C Linden definitely knows how to tell story and Beverly A Crick narrated this story very very well.
