The infamous rake, Lord Richard Hamilton, has finally chosen his bride-the very appropriate Miss Emma Grey. The ton approves, Lord Grey is pleased, Lady Grey delighted, and Emma is over the moon, but her uncle, (the blasted) Duke of Arden opposes the match, and Emma is ordered to move to the duke's estate to think things over. Richard Hamilton refuses to take things lying down and concocts a plan. A plan that should have brought the lovers together and had them married within a month. It was a simple matter of masquerading as the duke's gardener, compromising the lady, and then having the duke rush them off to Gretna Green. Alas, he underestimates the duke's intelligence and the tangled situation on the estate-never had he imagined that compromising a lady could be so difficult. His endeavours lead to a comedy of errors, charades, and knotty love affairs. Yet he forges ahead in spite of pesky house guests, a flea bitten mattress, his lovesick best friend, and a blackmailer. Just when things seem to be going well, someone is murdered (very inconvenient), and he happens to be one of the suspects (extremely inconvenient). His simple plan for winning the wager suddenly becomes ... a tad complicated.

As the local searcher, Eleanor must report the death formally, and so begins her bid to discover the truth behind the young woman's death...Was Grace's husband involved, or the mysterious and haughty French woman who has taken up residence in their home?

As the Black Raven, she's cold, distant and alone...untouched by the gossip and scorn of her aristocratic peers. Until he enters her house — and her life — then suddenly her icy shell is no match for the heat of attraction... Notorious Widow Lisbeth Carslake, Countess of Blackhurst was acquitted of her husband's murder, but no one believes in her innocence. Known as the Black Raven, bringer of bad luck and death, she is eviscerated by the gossips and mocked in the clubs. She's also the subject of London's most scandalous wager. Oliver Whitely, Earl of Bellamy, needs money, but it takes more than a few drinks to take on The Black Raven Wager. He finds himself drunk, at her house, and—more surprisingly—agreeing to a business proposal at the end of a fire poker. She will let him win the wager, and he will help find her husband's killer before the killer finds her. But business agreements don't mean trust, and Lisbeth certainly doesn't trust Oliver, her body's reaction to him, or her heart. Love may be the biggest gamble of their lives, but is it a wager their hearts can afford to lose?
