When her father gambles away the family estate to darkly dangerous Lord Dougal MacLean, Sophia MacFarlane is determined to use her wiles to regain it. Forced to stake the one thing she has left - her virtue - she desperately hopes her skill can limit her losses to a few kisses no matter how hotly tempting Dougal turns out to be. Dougal MacLean knows that Sophia has some trick up her sleeve, but he can't resist the challenge - or her ravishing beauty. So when she proposes a card game with most unusual stakes, Dougal is delighted to accept. But as the game ends, Dougal and Sophia discover they've wagered something even more precious - their hearts.
