The Parlor Game

(The third book in the Noble Charades series)
A novel by

Playing by the rules might be safe, but breaking them is far more enjoyable.

After enduring a loveless marriage, Anne, the widowed Lady Daventry, hopes to find happiness with her first love, Miles, upon his return from India. So she settles in London, knowing that’s where Miles will soon make his return. What she doesn’t know, is that Miles’s scoundrel of a younger brother is also in London—and he lives just down the street.

Alexander Holland came to London with one objective: take back the money his brother stole from him. Appalled by Lady Daventry’s loyalty to Miles, Alexander suggests a wager over a game of chess. To be sure she truly loves Miles, she must court a man of Alexander’s choosing prior to Miles’s return.

Certain her feelings will never change, Anne accepts the terms of the arrangement. It would be nothing more than a game—a fake courtship with a strict set of rules. She could easily resist any pompous, preening man Alexander chooses just to prove him wrong.

But Alexander has no intention of being proven wrong, and there’s only one man he would trust to steal Anne's heart in so short a time. Himself.
