The Lady Said She'd Never Marry . . . Him!
Judith Preston simply could not allow her dear younger sister Lilia to be coerced into marriage. Yet their tyrannical grandfather had invited the Gillmore heir to be a houseguest in order to make a match. Judith did not believe for a moment that money should be a reason to wed . . . although she herself had never received an offer. Lacking a fortune and unconventionally pretty, she had been passed over and put on the shelf. Yet the tall gentleman alighting from a coach-and-four was looking at her as if she were an angel. But she knew who he was from the tip of his polished boots to his immaculately tailored traveling coat — a gambler! The very thought made her shudder . . . even while his gaze made her tremble.
In fact, Zachery Camden had accompanied the Gillmore heir, his younger brother Andrew, in order to stop this unwanted betrothal. His plan was to flirt with Lilia himself . . . until his glance strayed to Judith. She thought him a wastrel, a libertine, an absolute rogue. Now he was about to wager his entire future on a gamble he had every intention of winning: the conquest of Judith's heart.
