A Hazard of Hearts


CHILD OF CHANCE

Serena Staverley was happy at Staverley Court. She loved to roam the stately gardens of her family manor and dream of her future love.

But then a cruel fate dealt her a shattering blow. Her father was killed in a duel after losing her hand, her inheritance and her home in a game of cards. All this was now the property of the infamous Lord Justin, Marquis of Vulcan -- a man whose reputation made it unwise for any decent woman to be seen in his company. A strange, cold man whose clifftop mansion echoed with terrible secrets.

With her freedom lost on the turn of a card, Serena is bound by a debt of honour to marry. She could run, or she could bow to the will of the brooding stranger who held her father's debt. Either way it meant dishonor -- and the end of her dreams.

After her arrival at his ancestral home of Mandrake, she discovers by chance the secrets of his family, and is thrust into a world of smugglers, highwaymen, abduction and murder.
