"You should not have kissed me," she replied
"I do a lot of things I shouldn't. It does
not mean I won't do them again."
Gently bred Emma Chadwick always assumed she'd live and die
the daughter of a gentleman. But when her father's death
reveals a world of staggering debt and dangerous
moneylenders, she must risk her good name and put her talent
for mathematics to use, taking a position as bookkeeper at
London's most notorious gambling hell. Surrounded by vice
and corruption on all sides, it is imperative no one
discovers Emma's shameful secret or her reputation-and her
life-will be ruined.
But Roderick Bentley, the hell's sinfully wealthy owner,
awakens a hunger Emma cannot deny. Drawn deep into an
underworld of high stakes gambling and reckless
overindulgence, she soon discovers that in order to win the
love of a ruthless scoundrel, she will have to play the
game...and give in to the pleasure of falling from grace.
