A gentleman gambler wagers his luck and his heart in the second of the Hellions of Halstead Hall series from the New York Times bestselling “grand mistress of storytelling” (RT Book Reviews) and author of the Duke Dynasty books.
Mired in scandal after his parents’ mysterious deaths, the notorious Lord Jarret Sharpe agrees to run the family brewery for a year if his Machiavellian grandmother rescinds her ultimatum that he marry or lose his inheritance. But the gambler in him can’t resist when beguiling Annabel Lake proposes a wager: If she wins their card game, he must help save her family’s foundering brewery. But if he wins, she must spend a night in his bed.
The outcome sets off a chain of events that threatens to destroy all of Jarret’s plans and unveil the secret Annabel has held for so long. When Jarret discovers the darker reason behind her wager, he forces her into another one—and this time he intends to win not just her body, but also her heart.
With her trademark “engaging characters and delightfully delicious sensuality” (RT Book Reviews), Sabrina Jeffries weaves a steamy and unforgettable historical romance.
