There's something delicious about a man, a woman and a wagerthe premise of Gayle Callen's Victorian-era historical, Never Trust a Scoundrel. However, heroine Grace Banbury has already lost much as the book opens. Not only has her mother gambled away the family money, she sweetened the pot by giving the winner the right to court and marry her daughter. And that winner, one Daniel Throckmorton, finds Grace very sweet indeed. He's not interested in marriage, though, and Grace is very much interested in helping her family financially, so they devise a second bet. He has two weeks to persuade her to become his mistress or else a valuable violin is hers. This romance between a scoundrel with a heart of gold and a country miss who can stand up for herself creates a fast-paced, satisfying story.
