Publisher's Summary

A woman who becomes a gambling prize discovers that nothing is more seductive, or dangerous, than love...
When her father auctions her off to pay his gambling debts, Melissa Seacourt vows that she will be no man's bought bride. Desperate to escape her fate shackled to someone she could never love, Melissa instead is forced to honor and obey the seductive stranger who comes to her rescue.
Purchasing a wife for 20,000 guineas wasn't the end game Nicholas Barrington envisioned when he walked into the notorious Newmarket gambling club. But the innocent Melissa arouses much more than his protective instincts. It will take all of Nick’s skill and daring to best a cunning adversary hellbent on his destruction. With two lives now hanging in the balance, Nick's playing for the highest stakes of all: his future with the woman who won his heart.

Just alright

I was a little disappointed. I found I couldn't quite get involved in the characters.. The heroine was to needy and the hero was to full of himself. I had trouble warming up to the men because the narrator makes them all sound like snobs.
