Publisher's summary

When hardened gamester Marcus Revington wins Horngate Manor in a card game, he's delighted to finally own property, and undeterred when he learns he must marry the heiress of the estate to claim it.

The heiress, Penny Montgomery, is happy with her life raising horses at Horngate and has no desire to wed anyone. When she discovers what her guardian has done, she comes up with a scheme to convince Marcus she's unsuitable as a wife so he'll give up his plan to marry her.

Who will win in this battle of wits and wills? Or will they both discover the name of the game is love?

Too much instalove

This is a very confusing story. I always have trouble with a couple that can have sex in under a week, but can't ask each other important questions...so they just go along with wrong assumptions that ruin their relationship.
This story is especially bad, as the couple are living together in the regency era and no one seems to have a problem. Also they have sex and no worry about the heroine getting pregnant. She was running a hourse breeding farm and was never concerned about this prospect.
In so many bad regency novels, the heroine shows one instance of strength and then acts like a doormat for the remainder of the book. This heroine keeps letting her cousin lie to her and manipulate her even though she is a smart woman.
The narrator is not very good. All the characters sound alike, so it's even more confusing. No emotion in the reading and the dialogue is not very good. She also mispronounces some words. She keeps using the word "settle", which should be "settee". Although a better narrator could not save this story. I can't finish this novel , as it's a waste of time.
