To root out the card cheat responsible for her brother’s death, Miss Delia Trevor spends her evenings dancing her way through high society balls, and her late nights disguised as a young man gambling her way through London’s gaming hells. Then one night, handsome Warren Corry, the Marquess of Knightford, a notorious member of St. George’s Club, recognizes her. When he threatens to reveal her secret, she’s determined to keep him from ruining her plans, even if it means playing a cat-and-mouse game with the enigmatic rakehell.
Warren knows the danger of her game, and he refuses to watch her lose everything while gaining justice for her late brother. But when she starts to delve beneath his carefully crafted façade, can he keep her at arm’s length while still protecting her? Or will their hot desires explode into a love that transcends the secrets of their pasts?
I love feisty women and this book is full of them. Delia's character is very entertaining and refreshing while leading the reader on a merry chase as she determinedly tries to find the nobleman who ruined her brother. She makes some serious mistakes but always takes responsibility for them and moves forward. What impressed me the most about her character was how she dealt with Warren after learning his startling secret.
Though Warren didn't empress me in the beginning he did grow on me and I found him to be the perfect man to handle Delia. I first read about him in The Study of Seduction (Sinful Suitors #2) I was not expecting him to be as full of character as he was in this book. This pleasant surprise made for a fun read and there were times that I chuckled at the two of them. I also learned some new relationship terms from that era that just caused me to laugh out loud but seriously I am not saying they, you have to read the book. Warren's strange habits get explained towards the end of the book and once they were exposed I finally understood what drove him.
As with all stories life isn't always perfect and it was heartbreaking to read who the nobleman was that cheated Delia's brother and how it effected everyone. The door is left wide open for a next book to this series between Lord Margrave and Delia's widowed sister-in-law, Brilliana. I sure hope it's about them...but we'll have to wait and see.
I give this 4 STARS and want everyone to read this exciting romantic read.

Sabrina Jeffries is the NYT bestselling author of over 50 novels and works of short fiction (some written under the pseudonyms Deborah Martin and Deborah Nicholas). Whatever time not spent writing in a coffee-fueled haze of dreams and madness is spent traveling with her husband and adult autistic son or indulging in one of her passions—jigsaw puzzles, chocolate, and music. With over 8 million books in print in 20 different languages, the North Carolina author never regrets tossing aside a budding career in academics for the sheer joy of writing fun fiction, and hopes that one day a book of hers will end up saving the world.
She always dreams big.
