Marriage? To a gambler? You must be joking! Yet Lady Hermione Upperton has never backed down from a challenge. When her spendthrift father offers her at the gaming tables, she is given a difficult choice—wed the Earl of Mainwaring, an infamous gamester with no respect for her skills with the reins, or face charges for the murder of a member of the infamous Lords of Anarchy. Either way she’ll have to clear her name. Can she count on her husband’s help the way she has begun to count on his kisses?
All Jasper Fawley, the Earl of Mainwaring, wanted was a night of cards. But by the end of the evening he’s walked away with a fortune—and a bride who’s suspected of murder. Jasper knows Hermione is passionate about her unorthodox membership in the Lords of Anarchy, but he’s certain she would never kill to keep it. Can he protect his headstrong wife from prosecution and a ruthless killer without endangering both their hearts in the process?
Hermione and Jasper have never gotten along particularly well. Hermione is a bit unconventional and has even become the first female memberof the Lords of Anarchy driving club. Her father is a gambler with no regard for Hermione's feelings and he gambles away her horses, then her own hand in marriage. Jasper, though he is a bit more traditional, feels compelled to help her. I loved the story. Loved Jasper. Loved Hermione. Thought they were great together. There is a mystery and some suspense. This is perfect for fans of steamy historical romance.
