All of London is abuzz with the return of the utterly alluring, recently widowed Diane Benchley. Will she remarry? What will she do with her late husband's fortune? Sociey is shocked by her announcement—at the Grand Ball, of all places!—that she plans to open an exclusive gentleman's gaming club in the family mansion. But no one is more stunned than the Marquis of Haybury, Oliver Warren.
Years ago, Oliver and Diane shared a private indiscretion. Now Diane threatens to reveal Oliver's most ungentlemanly secrets…unless he agrees to help her. A notorious gambler—and rake—Oliver is overqualified to educate Diane in the ways and means of running her establishment. But striking a deal with Diane might just be the biggest risk Oliver has ever taken. This time, the only thing he has to lose is his heart…
Enoch (A Matter of Scandal) will have readers tittering behind their fans at this hilarious Regency. Diane Benchley and her husband fled London just ahead of their angry creditors. Years later, Diane returns as a wealthy widow if appearances can be believed. Diane is passionate, strong-minded, and determined to never be poor again, so she stuns the ton by opening an exclusive gentlemen's gaming club. Most shocked of all is her old flame, Oliver Warren, the marquis of Haybury, especially when Diane blackmails him with a damaging secret to get his help with learning how to run a business. Oliver's attempts to atone for abandoning Diane and win her trust again are simultaneously seductive and heartwarming, and readers will cheer his tender efforts as well as Diane's bold entrepreneurship.
