How To Tempt An Earl (Raven Club #1) by Tina Gabrielle. Historical Romance Release, ARC Review & $15 G.C.Giveaway.

London society is cruel for a young woman whose father is an avid gambler. Miss Grace Ashton is not one to stand idly by while her family becomes destitute. Donning a mask, she slips into the night and attends the infamous Raven Club to confront the proprietor. But nothing prepares her for the sinfully attractive and wealthy Ian Swift.

Ian is intrigued when Grace walks into his gambling club but refuses her offer of a few jewels to pay her father’s large debts. Unbeknownst to anyone, Ian has inherited the Earldom of Castleton, and he must reluctantly take his place in Society. But Ian’s manners as a gentleman have suffered. He needs a tutor, and he knows the exquisite lady standing before him is the answer.

But soon tutoring turns to flirting, which unfortunately lands both of them in...marriage?

Grace Ashton is desperate to stop her father from gambling everything away. There is only one person who might be able to stop him,  the owner of the club he gambles in.  She already secretly works to help pay the bills,  but it's not enough to save them from ruin. 
Ian Swift the new Earl of Castleton has owned and run "The Raven" casino for years.  He doesn't see why he needs to change his life just because his brother died.  
This is an amusing and at times emotional story. The characters are fun and not above using guilt to get their own way. 
Family, and what we will do for them is the mainstay of the story. Our intelligent heroine will try anything to save her family from ruin.  Our stubborn hero is determined to have his cake and eat it.  
I thoroughly enjoyable read.
