Three best friends make a life-changing bet in the first book in a witty, sexy new Regency trilogy from acclaimed author Kate Noble.
As the Earl of Ashby, Lord
Edward Granville has never been in short supply of luck, earning him the
nickname “Lucky Ned.” Why should he not take risks most sensible men
would run from when the tide always turns in his favor? Making a wager that
he can have any woman he desires even without his title, Ned switches places
with John Turner, his friend and secretary. But once he does, Ned’s luck
suddenly abandons him, for the ladies now have eyes only for Turner. When Ned
meets governess Phoebe Baker, he becomes intent on gaining her affections.
Phoebe wants nothing more
than to keep her head down, teach her students, and go unnoticed—especially by
the Earl of Ashby. But his rakish secretary has the infuriating habit of
constantly crossing her path. Yet Phoebe cannot deny that her pulse quickens in
Ned’s presence. If this prim-and-proper governess lets her heart rule, will
fate intervene where Ned’s luck has forsaken him? Download and start listening now!
