Gabriel Claremont, Duke of Allingham, tries to forget his painful past in the shallow pleasures of his dissipated peers.

Despite his vow to to live without love, he is drawn to her far more than he will admit and soon finds himself fighting a tangle of fierce emotions.

How far must Elinor and Gabriel go to unravel the threads of their past--and discover their future?

Although they had been the best of friends in childhood, Richard is in no mood to forgive her for the misery she caused six years previously.  He plans his revenge carefully, intending to make Christabel his lover simply for the pleasure of rejecting her.  Against her will she finds herself falling passionately in love with him and is riddled with guilt for betraying the man she has agreed to marry.  At the same time Richard finds it increasingly hard to maintain his cold detachment but just when he realises the truth of his feelings, he discovers that his plotting has lost the trust of the woman he truly loves.

Review

Two star-crossed lovers but will they finally find happiness together?
Isabelle Goddard's writing is sharp and crisp, her period detail evocative and authentic, her pacing zesty and her characters nuanced and believable. In The Earl Plays with Fire, she has penned a wonderfully compelling tale peppered with action, intrigue, passion and adventure which readers will be unable to put down.  I adored Richard and Christabel's story and I was completely captivated by their dramatic, tempestuous and moving love story.
