About The Book
Lily Bachman has the largest dowry the haut ton has seen in years. Her fortune is meant to secure her marriage to a titled gentleman, but instead it has sent every fortune hunter in London into a frenzy. Despite her father's insistence that she choose a husband, Lily swears she won't marry any of these "Leeches." Instead, she focuses on her dreams of opening a charity school. She has everything well in hand - until a devilishly handsome rake sweeps her into a scandalous waltz.
Ethan Helling, Viscount Thorburn, never claimed to be a good man. A well-known rogue, he's over his ears in gaming debts and is tempted by a friend's demanding mistress. To continue indulging his appetites, he needs to marry a fortune. The lovely Miss Bachman just so happens to have one, and Ethan vows to win her dowry for himself.
When the seducer becomes the seduced, Lily and Ethan are forced into a hasty marriage. Now, to gain her fortune, Ethan must find a way to make his unwilling bride happy. As he fights to win her affection, Ethan finds himself falling in love with his spirited wife - despite her determination to keep her money, and her heart, out of his hands. With her dreams in ruins and her illusions shattered, can Lily afford to gamble on love?
