A Bet with a Baron by Tammy Andresen

Here is the book blurb.

He’s hell bent on debauchery…

Newly seasoned rake, Baron Kenneth Boxby, has spent his entire life drowning in responsibility. But he’s finally ready for some fun…and by fun, he means drinking, gaming, and bedding women in whatever order they present themselves. Which is why, when the opportunity arises, he buys an illegal gaming hell. The problem? His new partner’s sister is as beautiful as she is intelligent. And totally off limits. So why is he tempted?

She’ll do anything to be a real lady…

When Mirabelle Smith, bastard daughter to the Earl of Easton, determines to be the belle of London’s next season, she knows the task is difficult. The only way to win is to use every trick she’s carefully stashed up her lace cuff. Because, if growing up on the wrong side of London has taught her anything, gambling only works if you know how to play the game. The problem? She needs the help of an elusive baron who ignores her at every turn. But how does she win his support when the odds are stacked against her?

A bet ought to do nicely…

This is the first title in the new Lords of Temptation series, a spin-off from the 22 book Lords of Scandals series, linked via Ace, the Marquess of Fortune.

This time the heroine is Lady Mirabelle Smith, Ace’s sister, who being illegitimate, has grown up the hard way, before she gained the title of Lady. She now desires to be the belle of the Season and be accepted by the other ladies who have looked down on her since she was a child.

And how is she going to achieve her ambition? She needs someone to teach her the finer points. But who? She has Baron Kenneth Boxby in mind, her friend Emily’s brother. But she can’t just ask him outright. And that is where a bet comes into play.

What is the bet and what are the odds? What will ensue?

A Bet with a Baron is available on Amazon in Kindle format, hardback and paperback. Once again, another nice light short romantic story from Tammy Andresen.

About the author

USA Today Bestselling Author, Tammy Andresen lives with her husband and three children just outside of Boston, Massachusetts. She grew up on the Seacoast of Maine, where she spent countless days dreaming up stories in blueberry fields and among the scrub pines that line the coast. Her mother loved to spin a yarn and Tammy filled many hours listening to her mother retell the classics. It was inevitable that at the age of 18, she headed off to Simmons College, where she studied English literature and education. She never left Massachusetts but some of her heart still resides in Maine and her family visits often.
