Emily Portsman has a secret, and three years ago she decided the best way to keep it would be to work at the Tantalus Club, a notorious gaming establishment for gentlemen. It's not the sort of work a beautiful, well-bred governess would ever consider - unless she's hiding from her past and a man who wants to destroy her present....

His peers know him only as a bookish fellow who can find anything - or anyone. When the Marquis of Ebberling hires him to find a murderess, Nate's search leads him to the Tantalus Club and Emily Portsman. In a game where no one is who they seem and when every conversation is a deadly dance of trust and desire, the only thing Nate knows for sure is that once he gets Emily in his arms, he will never let go....

UNFORTUNATELY NOT THE BEST OF THE SERIES
very few cliches here!
It has a bit of a Courtney Milan feel to it, in that the characters are uncomfortable with rank and actually work.
The performance was rather bland. It's possible that it's just that I don't like Anne Flosnik's voice. She has a low, almost grating, tone that just bothers me.
I liked that the heroine's values were more liberated, and I loved the resolution.
