A female journalist in Victorian England... An errant fiance... The mysterious owner of a gambling palace... and Charles Dickens? Each player has his or her role to play in... Gambling on a Scoundrel!


London, 1861 – Everything seems to be going right for Temperance Bliss… until everything goes wrong…

Tempy Bliss, a budding journalist, is elated– not only is she about to announce her engagement, but the illustrious Charles Dickens wants her to write an article about gambling for his newspaper! Then she not only receives a Dear Jane letter from Ernest, but casino owner Lucien Hamlin also bans her from his gambling palace. What’s a girl to do? Buckle down and work harder. She’s determined to win back Ernest’s love and turn in the best article on gambling Mr. Dickens has ever seen.

Lucien Hamlin has a secret…

Lucien is a hard-driving self-made man. His life is about to be upended by his unexpected inheritance of an earldom. It’s a fact he’d rather not have announced, and certainly not in newsprint, until after the sale of his casino.

Tempy’s plans for her future shatter to pieces…

When Tempy receives a letter from Ernest informing her he’s fallen in love with a Frenchwoman, she vows to win him back. All she needs to do is become the kind of woman he can’t resist. In doing so, she learns more than how to walk and dress… she learns what she really wants out of life.
