Publisher Description

Hazard: a game of Chance and Luck, made riskier when Fate is rolling the dice.
For Aristide Delacroix, the first throw summons shades from his past. A man he had met, just once, over a card-table … and the lovely girl indirectly responsible for plunging his life into catastrophe.
For Lord Nicholas Wynstanton, tired of waiting for Madeleine Delacroix to make up her mind, it slyly suggests he begin a whole new game with loaded dice; while for Madeleine, it devises a terrifying lesson in missed opportunities and the uncertainty of second chances.
And for Genevieve Westin, hoping widowhood will be happier than marriage, it brings a rude awakening – leaving a single, wild gamble her only option.
A cardsharp turned businessman, a duke’s charming brother, a stubborn, razor-edged beauty and a desperate widow.
Four players in a game of Hazard … all playing for very high stakes.

Lulevy ,

Sweet and beautifully written!

I was looking forward to the story of Nicholas and Madeleine and it was nice to have Aristides HEA as a bonus.
Nicholas is the clumsy younger brother of the Duke of Rockliffe and has showed up in the previous books stepping on the ladies shoes when forced to dance.
Madeleine is the independent sister of Aristides, a close friend of Adrian (Earl of Sarre) from Paris that becomes co-owner of a gaming club with his friend and Nicholas.
The couple has a strong attraction from day one, but Madeleine thinks Nicholas has no honorable intentions and, after realizing it might not be so, thinks herself too below his social standing.
The story is sweet and beautifully written (as anything else from Mrs. Riley), and it was nice to see all the other couples of the previous books.
