In this Regency favorite from Jane Ashford, a troubled war hero is dealt an unexpected hand....
When Emma Tarrant enters a gambling house to find her brother losing to a gamester, she follows the strange man home and attempts to settle the score. Colin Wareham is intrigued by Emma's offer, and when he wins the first hand, he suggests another game. Should he prevail, Emma would be his prize. But as he's collecting his winnings, Emma's father storms in and demands a marriage. Though forced together, Emma and Colin's passion begins to grow... until a sinister man from Emma's past emerges to raise the stakes.

I enjoyed the story although the narration took me a while to get into. If you like historical romances this was fine. If you are looking for a steamy romance novel… This is probably not your best choice.
It was an entertaining book but Emma became almost annoying in her refusal to talk to Colin about her problem and Lady Mary needed to be smacked. It was fun to listen to once but not a repeat.
This book went beyond my expectations! I would read this book again and again. The characters are so stubborn and cause many complications for themselves, especially the main character. The characters definitely proved that love conquers all. This is the first Jane Ashford book I have read, and I can't wait to read more of her books.
