Summary
Pippa -- formally known as Lady Philippa Marbury -- is a brainy bluestocking who'd rather devote her energies to scientific inquiry than to maintaining her position in society. Betrothed to a kind but dim-witted earl, Pippa realizes that she has no idea what to expect on her wedding night. After receiving numerous evasive answers from her female relations, Pippa takes matters into her own hands and approaches her brother-in-law's business partner, Cross, the notorious owner of an exclusive gaming hell. Shocked but intrigued by Pippa's boldness, Cross (ever the gambler) makes an unusual wager with her, certain that he'll prevail and simultaneously prevent her ruin. But even if Cross wins the bet, he may lose his heart to Pippa. - Description by Gillian Speace
