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.

"Luscious, erotic, and emotionally intense.... Cecilia Grant is a fresh, unforgettable voice in historical romance." (Madeline Hunter)
I listened to 7 1/2 hours, in several attempts to finish it, but finally decided it was a waste of my time.
The first half consisted mainly of card playing -- 1 1/2 hours into the second half its still moving so s-l-o-w I don't have the patience to finish it. It was totally a waste of my time.
Although Susan Ericksen is a talented narrator, I cannot recommend the book.
Totally addicted to Audible.
I really enjoyed the first book in this series but even Susan Ericksen could not make this book interesting.
I am quiet and love being comfortable. I love curling up in a corner either reading or listening to a nice romantic book.
I don't know if it is just me or if it is the author but this book was horrible, long and unappealing in every way. I read Book 1 and just barely got through it but Book 2 was no better. I was going to read Book 3, but I honestly don't know if I can put up with it. The story made little sense to me and it was drawn out too long before you can even try to like it. I don't think I am making much sense but that is because of the book. I can't even blame the narrator even though she is also very dull and I hate listening to her voice. Absolutely not worth listening to unless you have nothing meaningful to do!
