    The riskier the wager... 
    Everyone knows that Gemma Templeton is a wonderful, cheerful, friendly young woman who is well worth one’s acquaintance. She is vibrant and warm, and plays the violin with exquisite talent. The only thing she lacks is a husband, and time is growing short for her in that regard. When an interesting opportunity arises from an unlikely source, Gemma’s future is suddenly far more appealing, and a small wager makes all the difference. 
    ...the sweeter the return. 
    What everyone does not know is that a certain man of a less warm reputation is very much interested in changing Gemma’s unmarried state, and he doesn’t care what anybody says. Lucas Sinclair, Lord Blackmoor, is a dark mark upon the face of Society, and his unexpected interest in Gemma leaves many to wonder if his motives don't hide some sinister purpose. He takes her ridiculous wager, and will stop at nothing to see it paid.

    Riley’s whole life is ahead of her … if the temptation of her father’s new protégé doesn’t prove to be too much to stand. 
    Brandon Grant is smack dab in the middle of the best years of his life, and so far they’ve been devoted to the construction company where he works. A product of the foster care system, he comes from a dark enough past that he can never let anyone get too close — except his boss, Mason James, who steps into the void Brandon’s father was never there to fill. After years of hard work, Brandon is finally about to land the promotion he’s always wanted. Soon, he’ll be able to live for himself, and find someone to share in the happiness he’s sure to earn … eventually. 
    But love can’t always wait … 
    Just as Brandon is being groomed for the position, he meets the sweetest, most charming, and electrifying girl he’s ever seen — and realizes, with a crushing, sinking feeling, that she’s Riley James, the boss’s daughter. 
    Ever since she lost her mother as a girl, Riley’s lived for her father, Mason. The loss has nearly consumed them both, and they’ve only survived it together. But while Mason moves into his twilight years, Riley is young and ready for her life to begin. Her father’s shared grief -- once the warm embrace she needed -- now starts to feel like a set of shackles … and they’re starting to chafe. 
    But while Riley might be ready to move on, her father can’t, and he makes it abundantly clear that Brandon’s not to go near her. As he spends more and more time in the office, readying himself to become the new company big man, he clocks more time with Riley. Soon, their spark ignites to inferno. 
    Both Riley and Brandon will have to decide if their happiness still means what they’ve always thought, or if they’ve finally found the person who can turn their lives into something more.
