London weather is chilly--and the social scene even more so.
Luckily, Bridget Forrester is just getting warmed up...
Bridget longs to meet a gentleman who doesn't mention her beautiful sister upon shaking her hand. But since being branded a shrew after a disastrous social season, Bridget knows she's lucky to even have a man come near her. It's enough to make a lady flee the country...
So Bridget heads to Venice for music lessons with the renowned Italian composer Vincenzo Carpenini, with whom she's been corresponding. But not only is Carpenini not expecting her, he doesn't even remember her! His friend, theater owner Oliver Merrick, does, though. And one look into her tantalizing green eyes has him cursing his impulsive letter-writing, which brought her across the continent. Yet before Merrick can apologize, Carpenini has ordered her away.
Little does either man know that they will soon be embroiled in a wager that will require the beautiful Miss Forrester's help--or that there'll be far more at stake in this gamble than money...
About the Author
Kate Noble loves books, romances especially. But coming from a family of doctors, scientists, and mathematicians, she didn't discover she was adept at writing until, oh, about junior year of high school. This discovery came as something of a relief, as she was hopeless at memorizing Latin names for all the bones in the human body. The Heisenberg uncertainty principle eludes her to this day. Kate lives in Los Angeles.
