Her life was charmed, until it was not.Near destitute after the sudden death of her wastrel husband, Lady Pipworth must find a way to support herself and her young nieces until her brother returns home to assume his role as head of the family. Thanks to her three brothers that raised her, Adalia’s one outstanding skill in life is gambling, and with a dower house now at her … now at her disposal, plans to fill the coffers–scandal begetting or not–begin to take shape.
A mysterious duke with one goal in mind.
The Duke of Dellon is interested in nothing more than fulfilling the needs of running his ducal estate. As for a wife and an heir–he will get to it, eventually–as long as it fits neatly into his orderly life. But when a vow invoked from the grave surfaces, he obligingly sets out to do what is required of him–stop Lady Pipworth from the foolery of operating a gaming house. And, if he should need to, marry the woman.
