A woman auctioned off to pay a gambling debt finds her only hope lies with a seductive stranger in this Regency romance from a USA Today–bestselling author.
When her father auctions her off to pay his gambling debts, Melissa Seacourt vows that she will be no man’s bought bride. Desperate to escape her fate shackled to someone she could never love, Melissa instead is forced to honor and obey the seductive stranger who comes to her rescue. Purchasing a wife for 20,000 guineas wasn’t the end game Nicholas Barrington envisioned when he walked into the notorious Newmarket gambling club. But the innocent Melissa arouses much more than his protective instincts. It will take all of Nick’s skill and daring to best a cunning adversary hell-bent on his destruction. With two lives now hanging in the balance, Nick’s playing for the highest stakes of all: his future with the woman who won his heart.
Dangerous Games is the 2nd book in the Dangerous series, but you may enjoy reading the series in any order.
