Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation -- for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party -- and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible -- he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver's protector. . .

If it weren’t for a dishonourable bet, Louisa Oliver would never have been invited to the seasonal house party of the scandalous Alexander Edgware, Earl of Xavier. But after her own embarrassing loss when her fiancé wedded another, Louisa is ready for adventure. Her chaperone, the plain-spoken Lady Irving, hopes that a bit of scandal with the handsome rake will be just what Louisa needs, provided the rake is not completely irredeemable. Alex tends to hide behind charming Numbered Expressions (a favourite being Number Three, Amused Tolerance), but Louisa sees through the masks -- and likes what she sees. Alex’ scheming cousin, the Marquess of Lockwood, benefits more from the hedonistic version of Alex, threatening the downfall of both Louisa and Alex. Warning: steamy scenes ahead!

Alexander Edgware, Lord Xavier, has quite a reputation—for daring, wagering, and wickedness in all its delightful forms. But the wager before him is hardly his preferred sport: Xavier must persuade a proper young lady to attend his famously naughty Christmas house party—and stay the full, ruinous two weeks. Worse, the lady is Louisa Oliver, a doe-eyed bookworm Xavier finds quite charming. Yet to refuse the challenge is impossible—he will simply have to appoint himself Miss Oliver’s protector…

MISCHIEF AMONG MISSES
Louisa knows her chance for a husband has passed. But she has no desire to retire into spinsterhood without enjoying a few grand adventures first. When Lord Xavier’s invitation arrives, Louisa is more intrigued than insulted. And once inside the rogues’ gallery, she just may have a thing or two to teach her gentlemen friends about daring…
