From the first glimpse he knew he must have her — even if only for a single night . . .
Powerful, ruthless, seductive—the lord of London’s underworld—Roman Merrick gets anything he wants . . . and he burns for Charlotte Chatsworth, a polished jewel in the glittering ton. So he engages her debt-ridden gambler father in a game of chance, wagering ten thousand pounds against one night with the man’s exquisite daughter. And Roman Merrick never loses.
But one night is never enough . . .
Charlotte is devastated to learn that her reprobate father has lost her in a card game to the most dangerous man she’s ever met. With the threat of ruin behind every corner, Charlotte embarks upon a perilous path with the man she cannot forget. But in truth, it’s Roman who has everything to lose—for a game undertaken for pleasure alone soon has him gambling his heart. And love and passion unleashed could bring his great, dark empire tumbling down . . .
Great second book in the series. The characters of the first book make appearances but aren't overpoweringly present. I love the dynamic between Roman and Charlotte. I love Charlotte's strength and selflessness as well as her hidden depth. Roman's character reveals more as the book goes on and I highly enjoyed what I read! Roman and Charlotte are from two different worlds and seem to be different in every way. However, Roman see's Charlotte is drowning and needs to fly and he helps her realize it's possible to be herself and be just a little selfish. I loved their romance, and Roman's little notes. Highly recommend. Perfectly laid out and paced!
