(From the publisher):
Eliot Fitzharding, Duke of Guilford, once visited Penny House to enjoy the games of chance. Now he finds that his heart beats faster — not at the turn of a card, but at the thought of matching wits with Miss Amariah Penny, the fashionable club's proprietress.
Amariah, a clever copper-haired beauty, enjoys Guilford's company as well... perhaps too much. If only he were not so wickedly attractive! When an unknown gambler accuses Penny House of harboring a cheat — and threatens violence if the man is not expelled — Guilford comes immediately to Amariah's rescue. But as the two of them race to shield Penny House from the rumors, they risk becoming an item of choice gossip themselves....
