'Tis the season . . . for revenge.
Eleven years ago during Christmas, Martin Banks's family was thrown into the streets by wealthy landlord, Edwin Hartwell. Now this holiday season, fate has handed Martin an unexpected gift. Vengeance. Defeating Hartwell at cards gives Martin the chance to financially ruin the man–but damn, instead of money, Hartwell offers his daughter as payment. And double damn, Martin stupidly accepts. How did retribution turn into seduction? Martin refuses to let himself fall in love, so there must be rules to this game.
And perhaps a bit of romance.
Desperate to save her father from ruin, Livvy Hartwell agrees to accompany Martin as his paramour. She long ago accepted that a penniless bluestocking like herself had no chance for a well-suited marriage. If a few passionate months with a man like Martin is all she'll ever have as far as romance, it's an opportunity she will take. But she must guard her heart. He might be handsome as the devil and tempting as sin, but she can't be a typical mistress and doesn't want Martin to call her such. In fact, she has a list of rules.
Contains mature themes.

About the Author
Cornell Collins was a hippie, a mod, a punk, a new-romantic, and a new-waver. Now, he proudly calls himself “newly middle aged.” Narrating audiobooks has shown Cornell that life in the modern world can, in some ways, be just as good as the golden 70s and 80s, and he has found a peace in telling stories. His life partner and daughter are very patient and much cleverer than he is.
