An impulsive spitfire gambles on love in a witty Regency romance from the New York Times–bestselling author of the Traveling Matchmaker series.
The Misses Penelope Yarwood, Euphemia Perkins, and Letitia Helmsdale waste no time in smugly informing Fiona that the Marquess of Cleveden is the most eligible—and the most elusive—catch in the London marriage mart. And since society’s most dazzling beauties have failed to win him over, a newcomer like Fiona doesn’t stand a ghost of a chance of having him look at her twice.
That is all that fiery-tempered Fiona needs to hear, and she bets—far more wealth than she possesses—that she will snare the maddeningly elusive marquess before the season’s end.
Now Fiona faces the risk of losing a wager she cannot repay—and more, the even greater danger of losing her heart.
