A seductive beauty turns the tables on a gentleman gaming for the guiltiest of pleasures in this rich and sensual Regency romance.

Lydia Slaughter understands the games men play--both in and out of the bedroom. Not afraid to bend the rules to suit her needs, she fleeces Will Blackshear outright. The Waterloo hero had his own daring agenda for the gaming tables of London's gentlemen's clubs. But now he antes up for a wager of wits and desire with Lydia, the streetwise temptress who keeps him at arm's length.

A kept woman in desperate straits, Lydia has a sharp mind and a head for numbers. She gambles on the sly, hoping to win enough to claim her independence. An alliance with Will at the tables may be a winning proposition for them both. But the arrangement involves dicey odds with rising stakes, sweetened with unspoken promise of fleshly delights. And any sleight of hand could find their hearts betting on something neither can afford to risk: love.

“Smoldering eyes, I should say. Eyes like a pair of live coals.”

Oh, for Heaven’s sake. “Live coals glow orange. The gentleman’s eyes are brown.”

Will drew a sharp cold breath. This was a mood. That meant it would pass. He’d come safe to the other end of every mood before, and so would he do with this one.

Now she was the one to look away, down to where the edge of her windblown skirt still lingered about his boots like an emissary for the rest of her, a scout demonstrating how easily the gap between them might be bridged.

I was surprised how dark this story was. Will is an ex-soldier haunted by his experiences in the Napoleonic Wars. Lydia is surviving as a prostitute but planning for a better future. Together they decide that winning money through gambling is the answer to their problems, aided by Lydia's gifted memory and math skills. There's a lot of sadness in this tale, and I think I was too well aware of how things might realistically have ended for these characters to get swept up in the romance.
