Gambled Away
by Isabel Cooper, Molly O'Keefe, Joanna Bourne, Jeannie Lin, Rose Lerner

Get revenge. Pay a debt. Save a soul. Lose your heart.

Spanning centuries and continents, five brand-new novellas
from beloved historical romance authors tell the stories of
men and women who find themselves wagered in a game of
chance and are forced to play for the highest stakes of all:

Redeemed by Molly O’Keefe

Denver, 1868 — After agonizing years in the
Civil War’s surgical tents, Union doctor James Madison
has nothing left to lose. But when beautiful, tortured Helen
Winters is the prize in a high-stakes game of poker, he goes
all in to save her—and maybe his own soul.

Gideon and The Den of Thieves by Joanna

London, 1793 — Soldier of fortune Gideon Gage
has come home from halfway around the world, fully prepared
to face down a ruthless gang to save his sister. But
there’s one member of the gang he could never have
been prepared for: fascinating Aimée, driven from her
own home by the French Revolution and desperately in need of
his help.

Raising The Stakes by Isabel Cooper

California, 1938 — When the flute she won in
last night’s poker game unexpectedly summons an elven
warrior bound to her service, two-bit con artist Sam takes
quick advantage. With Talathan’s fairy powers at her
command, her shakedown of a crooked preacher is a sure
thing…but would she rather take a gamble on love?

All or Nothing by Rose Lerner

England, 1819 — Architect Simon Radcliffe-Gould
needs someone to pose as his mistress so he can actually get
some work done at a scandalous house party. Irrepressible
gambling den hostess Maggie da Silva would rather be his
mistress, but she’ll take what she can get…

The Liar’s Dice by Jeannie Lin

Tang Dynasty China, 849 A.D. — Lady Bai’s
first taste of freedom brings her face to face with murder.
A dangerous and enigmatic stranger becomes her closest ally
as she investigates the crime, but can she trust her heart
or her instincts when everyone is playing a game of
liar’s dice?
