Lady Ellie Swift learned at an early age that men were more trouble than they’re worth. Now she’s all grown up and is the toast of society. Only she has secret ambitions to run her brother’s infamous gambling establishment—the Raven Club. Everything is progressing as planned until the man who broke her heart, Hugh Vere, the Marquess of Deveril, wants to take over the club. Dark, dominant, and strikingly handsome, Hugh’s reputation for sin precedes him, and suddenly, her dreams—and her heart—are in jeopardy.
As rakish as Hugh appears, he has a sharp mind for business. No one stands in the way of what he wants, not even the fiery-haired beauty from his past. From the moment he sees her again sparks fly, but he knows better than to fall for the lady. According to Ellie, the battle lines have been drawn and Hugh doesn’t stand a chance. But the nearly combustible chemistry between them is hard to ignore, and soon the club is not the only prize he wants…

Each book in the Raven Club series is STANDALONE:
* How to Tempt an Earl
* How to Best a Marquess


Lady Ellie Swift loves everything about her brother's gambling hall. She always wears a mask when she is down among the customers especially when watching the boxers fighting. 
Hugh Vere the Marquess of Deveril has recently returned from the war.  Fighting in the boxing ring is a good way to let off steam and challenge himself.  Another way will be to buy the gambling hall from his friend.  The problem is someone else wants it,  so they have to compete with each other to see who will be best for the club. 
The history between our characters will make the sparks fly.  Our heroine wants to be independent, run the club and help abused women. 
Our hero loves a challenge,  but also needs to protect our heroine even when she doesn't want it. 
Good fun with lovely characters.  A little danger and some steamy scenes. 
I loved it.
