Lord Arcenbryght Malloren is done with love. If he marries it will be for money to invest in his favorite scheme—canal building.

Then he meets the impoverished Portia St. Claire, and is soon entangled in her and her family's ruinous affairs.

It doesn't take Bryght long to decide that Portia is the woman for him. But can he persuade Portia to trust a rich, devastatingly handsome nobleman who appears to be a reckless gamester?

"Romance at its best..." ~Publisher's Weekly.

"Intricately plotted, fast-paced, and delightfully wicked..." ~Library Journal

"A fantastic novel. Jo Beverley shows again why she is considered one of the genre's brightest stars." ~Affaire de Coeur
