What happens at the infamous Vega Club
Sophie Campbell is determined to be mistress of her own fate. Surviving on her skill at cards, she never risks what she can’t afford to lose. Yet when the Duke of Ware proposes a scandalous wager that’s too extravagant to refuse, she can’t resist. If she wins, she’ll get five thousand pounds, enough to secure her independence forever.
Stays at the Vega Club…
Jack Lindeville, Duke of Ware, tells himself he’s at the Vega Club merely to save his reckless brother from losing everything, but he knows it’s a lie. He can’t keep his eyes off Sophie, and to get her he breaks his ironclad rule against gambling. If he wins, he wants her—for a week.
A week with Jack could ruin what’s left of Sophie’s reputation. It might even cost her her heart. But when it comes to love, all bets are off…
OUT February 27th Everywhere!
This is another one of those books that does not follow the normal historical romance plot line and as everyone knows I am a sucker for HR books that have a twist. The leading lady in this book is so freaking clever!!! She made a life for herself and was completely independent at a time when women were afraid to let the world know they even had independent thoughts let alone lives. The fact that this woman’s whole life balanced on the fine line between acceptable and scandalous made her even more exciting. Watching how the relationship forms between the Duke and Sophie made this book hard to put down.
