From bestselling, award-winning Jane Feather comes this sensual tale of love and deception. . . . A headstrong beauty meets her match—in a gentleman who doesn’t play by the rules. . . .They call it their “double act.” And in Europe’s most exclusive gaming halls, Judith Davenport and her brother Sebastian used the technique to dupe unwary noblemen out of their pocket money. First, Judith lured them to the card tables with her ravishing smile. Then, employing her fan in an elaborate code, she made sure Sebastian’s luck never ran out. It was a dangerous game played in preparation for one desperate purpose: to avenge their father’s tragic death.But the Davenports never bargained for the penetrating scrutiny of a certain strikingly handsome lord who had come to see for himself the woman who had all of Burssels at her feed, including his besotted nephew. Marcus Devlin, the honorable marquis of Carrington, wasn’t fooled for an instant by Judith’s air of innocence—or by her flirtatious way with a fan. Instead he was amused, infuriated, and intrigued enough to draw the bewitching schemer into a daring gable of his own . . . where the stakes were nothing less than the lady’s heart.
Duping unwary nobleman out of their fortunes in the gaming halls–a dangerous game she plays in order to raise money to avenge her father’s death–Judith Davenport finds herself under the scrutiny of the honorable Marquis of Carrington.
