Overview

Blush: This is a suggestive romance (love scenes are not graphic).

Summoned by his godfather to London, Archibald Brainridge is made an offer he cannot refuse. Provided he eschews the gaming tables and gets himself a respectable wife, the Earl of Chandos will make him his heir. Though taken aback by the proposal, Archie rallies. Back at Brainridge Hall, he sets off to propose to Miss Isabella Cox, his childhood playmate. En route to Bella's - desirous of a bit of Dutch courage before popping the question - he drops in at the local pub.

Staring down at her suitor, swaying unsteadily at her feet, Isabella is tempted to box Archie's ears. How dare he make her an offer while foxed! Even if he were sober, she'll never marry Archie, despite the secret tendre she harbors.

Isabella is determined to never marry a gamester. But, ever persistent, Archie follows her to Town. Wherever she goes, he shows up to woo her. Only to concede he's met his match. He'll never win her hand - not unless he reforms and risks his heart on the greatest gamble of all - love!
