(From the publisher):
The Wicked Wager...
A baron who decides he must marry randomly chooses a shy musical lady, but his plan goes awry when he discovers that the girl's aunt is the lady he loved long ago.
Jason Kincaid, nineteenth Baron Radford, was devastatingly handsome, fabulously wealthy, and thoroughly ruthless. What he wanted, he got, and now what he wanted was to win a wager that he could make Miss Caroline Hanscombe his bride, after her name was drawn out of a hat.
True, Caroline was an innocent compared to the baron. True, the ruling passion of her life was music, to which the baron turned a deaf ear. True, she found a perfect soul mate in the gallant Captain Richard Davenport, home from the wars and laying siege to her heart.
But how could this chit of a girl defy the desires of this lord who so easily defeated her every defense as the day of her dreaded marriage came ever closer -- and her hopes of escape evaporated one by one...
