In this rich, entertaining Regency romance, a lady wagers one kiss with a dashing lord who vows to learn her secrets.
Cassandra Marston only needs enough funds for passage to America. That is the only reason she agrees to one kiss with the dashing Lord Graceton, Lucien Hollier - if he wins their game of cards. Captivated by the beautiful and mysterious widow, Lucien agrees. And wins. Their kiss is only the beginning . . .
Cassie can't hide her skill at card playing for very long, and when she wins hand after hand, Lucien becomes suspicious, especially when she fleeces him out of nearly 300 pounds. Rather than face his wrath come morning, Cassie flees, the memory of their kiss burning in her mind.
When her carriage overturns, she pretends to have no memory of her identity . . . and is stunned when Lucien claims she is his wife! He insists on taking her to a secluded hideaway where he endeavours to help her remember their "marriage" - with sensual caresses and fiery kisses . . .
