He’s an aristocrat turned card-player.
She’s a small town girl turned actress.
They didn’t gamble on love.
Jess Sullivan has one goal: to return home to the “good girl” life she foolishly forfeited in the name of love. First, though, she’s determined to save enough money to pay back what her absentee husband stole from her family. She is immune to romance and footloose philanderers, especially silver-tongued card players like Lee Montgomery. Definitely, absolutely, immune to him.
Lee doesn’t believe it. From the moment he meets the beautiful actress he is dead-set on a torrid affair. Nothing more, though, for his shallow heart cannot fall in love.
Until it does.
Lee knows himself; he is incapable of fidelity. And even if he wanted to marry, his proper Boston family demands he choose a wife of pristine reputation—not a married Irish actress. He should leave. He should. He’s still trying to convince himself of that when Jess’s stage manager is murdered, and he and Jess are framed for it. . .
