A WAGER TO STEAL ONE KISS MAY BREAK TWO HEARTS
Headstrong Lady Eleanor Chilton resolves to be so disagreeable during her first season that no one will dance with her...let alone offer for her. She plans to return to her country estate to make a match with a sensible man of her own choosing, not a dandy who wagers, chases women and dresses in foppery. But, alas, her plan goes disastrously awry!
With her blonde hair, blue eyes, and aloof demeanor, Eleanor soon becomes the talk of the ton - and the women every man desires. And no man more than Sir Andrew de Ardescote, London's wealthiest bachelor, ladies' man, and gambler. Of course, Eleanore snubs him - although she is not immune to his charms. Of course, Sir Andrew vows revenge: a wager with his friends to be the first melt Lady "Chill"ton with desire. The deed will be done at a masked ball, but as intrigue and ardor increases, an unplanned kiss can incite a scandal - and lead a man and a woman to unexpected love.
