As Emma Greenway opens her doors to the city’s gamesters, tongues are bound to wag. She left Clifton as plain Emma Johnson, the butcher’s daughter. Now years later, she’s returned home only to face the man who stole her heart.
Captain Max Collinson’s heart beats faster when he first sets eyes on Emma, Lady Greenway. Painful memories come flooding back, memories of a passion ignited beneath an Italian sky, and a love now lost.
A sinister threat hangs over them both for Lord Brookes wants Emma and will not be thwarted in his determination to have her. But Emma has a plan. The plan is simple, but it will be a gamble.
