Had He Risked His Honor . . .
When Lord Connought gallops into Harriet Godwyne’s cherry orchard, only to dismount and sweep her into a scandalous kiss, she’s furious. How dare the arrogant cad presume to trifle with her after his abominable behavior seven years past? She had loved him then, until a foolish wager drove them apart. Harriet has never quite forgiven Connought, and when her friends lay odds that she must charm him out of three of his prized possessions or marry him, she cannot deny the temptation to beat the handsome — and still endearingly infuriating — man at his own game.
. . . Or His Proud Heart?
Thinking only of the magnificent black stallion he might win, Connought had agreed to a ridiculous hazard only to find he would forfeit family land if he lost. An impossible situation — even before he learned the task was to kiss Harriet’s friend. Still, Harriet’s low opinion of him rankles — especially as he’d been prepared to wed the girl! When his mischievous friends now propose that he can’t persuade spirited Harriet to accept his suit again, he’s determined to prove them wrong — even as he realizes that Harriet’s love is the reward he truly wants.
