In a bet between two old flames…

Rex Leighton dominates the boardroom in the day and prowls the ballroom at night. Searching for the perfect bride to usher him into the aristocracy, he abandoned the idea of love a long time ago--the last time he saw the delicious May Sedgwick. But when he’s roped into a bet, where the prize is the means to fund his greatest ambition and the stakes are a marriage he’s already planning for, Rex is willing to go all in. There’s just one problem-he’s competing against the only woman he’s ever loved and he’s sure she’ll ruin all his plans.

Only love can take it all

Miss May Sedgwick could be the belle of the season…if she cared. May is more interested in the art studio than the marriage market and her craving to pursue her passion far outweighs her desire for a titled English husband. Winning this bet will finally allow her to pursue her true artistic desires. Rex Leighton losing is just a side benefit, as are his breathtaking kisses that she just can’t seem to resist.

Bet #5

Embrace a Rakish Future

                There’s been much written about the pleasures of winning the heart of a reformed rake. Perhaps it is an accomplishment to take pride in. Capturing the attention and devotion of such a man is certainly a boon. Yet once you’ve caught your rake, or allowed him to catch you, do you really wish him to transform into an utterly proper gentleman? If you’d wanted such a man, you wouldn’t have bothered with a rake at all.

                While a lady has every reason to expect devotion and a steadfast husband when she chooses to marry a rake, she should also allow for a life that includes a few surprises. Rakes thrive on adventure, and you, ladies, should embrace all aspects of the man you’ve come to love. Let him continue to woo you. Let him show you experiences you might never have imagined seeking for yourself. Let spontaneity lighten the day to day habits you will surely settle into. Better yet, devise your own adventures and pursue them with your reformed rake. Surprise the man who wooed you with his audacious charm. Never forget that initial rakish spark that drew you to your husband, ladies, and embrace it as you pursue your happily ever after.

“Against your will, then? This rogue desire to see me finally beat out your better judgment?” Sarcasm had never been May’s strong suit. She hadn’t mastered the right tone.
“I fight it every day,” he said in such a raspy whisper that she leaned in to catch it. “The desire to see you.”
