Blessed with boyish charm -- and a sizable inheritance -- Lucian Hammond, Lord Kettering, is as welcome at the gentlemen's clubs as he is at society soirees. But his penchant for gambling lands him in debt, and puts him at the mercy of his mother, who controls his inheritance until his thirty-fifth year. Lady Kettering offers him a wager that he cannot refuse. If he can straighten out his finances in a month, she'll release to him his entire fortune. One condition: that he accept the help of her own "man of business" -- a woman -- whose mathematical talents are as irritating as her beauty is captivating.
