One year ago, Lady Camille Pryce left her haughty fiancé at the altar—for good reason. Not only was the marriage arranged before she could even walk, her betrothed was too smug to exert himself to meet her! Now, disowned, with no husband or family to support her, she’s left with one option: go to work in the notorious Tantalus Club…
A gentleman’s gaming house run by a woman, the Tantalus is no place for a proper lady; so, to save face, her jilted fiancé must retrieve her. But banned from the club, he’s forced to employ his ne’er-do-well cousin instead. A handsome, experienced rogue, Keating Blackwood is the perfect man to lure Camille away. But the moment they meet, Keating instead wants to save her…for himself. Impossible? Perhaps. But if Camille can make the ultimate player lay his cards on the table—and risk his heart—all bets are off…
Review: Lady Camille is a character that I was a little too virginal for me at first ,but she quickly won me over with her decision to do what She wanted. Having been betrothed to a man since the cradle on her wedding day she chooses to do the unthinkable and leave. Penniless and disowned she goes to the only place she can to provide for herself.
The Tantalus Club.
Her fiance’ more worried about himself and reputation that providing for her sends his blackguard by reputation cousin Keating Blackwood to get her.
Per the course of romance he falls for her. Keating was a guy I really liked. And he kept me on my toes up until literally the last few damn pages. While I won’t spoil it this is definitely one of those page turning, keep you on your seat, until the eve mother loving end.
However when you get there it’s absolutely scrumptious.
