He promised his name and his protection - but he never promised his love.
Matthew Chandler built his fortune catering to the debauched antics of the ton. But one turn of the cards threatens everything he's worked hard to achieve. Suspecting foul play at the gaming table, Matthew needs time and money if he has any hope of uncovering the plot to ruin him.
When Miss Priscilla Smythe finds herself in a compromising situation in the Holbrooks garden there appears to be only one option to save her reputation – marry Lord Morford. Indeed, his mother's plan to force them to wed worked perfectly. But ruination seems more appealing than a life spent with a man she doesn't love. That is until Matthew Chandler appears with an offer any respectable lady would refuse.
The game begins.
From the moment she accepted his offer, he made it clear their marriage was nought but an opportunity to beat their opponents. Theirs was to be a marriage of convenience. But it seems he underestimated the lady's hand.
