Seduction was a game that could break her heart... At five-and-twenty, heiress Ann Forester did not care that she was rather plain. She prided herself on her skill at the pianoforte and her superior intellect. She certainly would not let a dashing rake outwit her. Had the Christmas party at a country estate not been as dull as dishwater, she knew Lord Robert Lyndhurst, who had his choice of the ton's prettiest ladies, would not have given her a second glance. Nor a kiss. But the bored nobleman had done both and challenged her to a contest. He would try to seduce her. She must try to reform him. Never had Ann been so outraged, so shocked... so intrigued. Neither realized how dangerous it was to play with desire. Sharp words could wound, smoldering looks could ruin one's reason, and sweet caresses could carry them both into a compromising situation... unless these clever sparring partners discovered that the only game worth winning was a game called love.
