Synopsis

Ruth Owen takes Regency romance for a walk on the wild side as a desperate woman’s dangerous charade compels a tormented nobleman to raise the stakes on love.
 
Sabrina Murphy has spent years trying to live down the reputation of her gambler father. But after being accused of a murder she didn’t commit, Sabrina decides to wager her life on the success of an audacious scheme. She will assume the identity of an heiress who disappeared as a child, duping the wealthy and powerful Trevelyan line long enough to lift the family jewels and flee the country. The hitch? She must convince the dark, handsome, and mysterious widower Lord Edward that she’s not bluffing.
 
When the young beauty claiming to be his long-lost cousin arrives at the Trevelyan estate, Lord Edward is justly skeptical. Her very existence jeopardizes his inheritance. And yet even he must admit there is a striking resemblance—and that her gentle presence works magic on the tattered remains of his family. But when a series of suspicious accidents threatens her life, she and Edward are drawn together by a need to expose the truth—and by a desire neither can resist.
