Award-winning author Vanessa Riley turns all convention on its head for the first in an enchanting, dazzlingly diverse new Regency romance trilogy featuring a duke, three sisters, and a tantalizing bet with a most desirable reward...


When a duke discovers the woman he loves was tricked into marrying another, the master chess player makes the now-widowed Baroness the highest-stakes wager of his life: he will find husbands for her two reluctant-to-marry sisters--or depart forever...

Reeling from unexpected loss, Georgina Wilcox is about to give up on her love of music and talent for singing. But when Jahleel Charles, Duke of Torrance, encourages her to win a prestigious prize that will launch her career, she reluctantly accepts a tutor--a fellow struggling prodigy as appealing as he is insecure. But will their sudden fiery collaboration--and growing attraction--prove a scandalously irresistible temptation?

A second son and would-be composer, Lord Mark Sebastian feels he's the last person to teach anyone--much less help the gifted Georgina succeed. However, her skill at bringing his compositions to life are rekindling his hopes--and making him want more than to please his family by marrying an heiress. Soon, with their reputations and futures on the line, will the talented duo take a risk on each other, and find the confidence to follow their dreams--and their hearts?
