Adventurous Minx . . .
Ellie Dearborne bit her lip in consternation. How could she have gotten herself in such a fix! Her penchant for gaming had finally led her to ruin. It seemed like such a lark, wagering her devious cousin George that she would obtain the snuffboxes of three of society's most dashing peers in one month's time — or grant George her hand in marriage. She could easily succeed, too, were it not for that exasperating Lord Ravenworth. The handsome rake would never accede to her request as a gentleman should. She would have to find a way around him . . . by fair means or foul.
Sophisticated Scoundrel . . .
Ravenworth didn't know what the lovely Miss Ellie was up to, but he was not about to let her lead him on some merry chase! It was high time the Fair Player met her match. She was too entrancing for her own good. Her dark blue eyes sparkled with intelligence and wit; her creamy skin flushed most becomingly when he forced her to meet his eyes. How delightful to have such a mischievous minx at his mercy! The possibilities were most . . . intriguing.
