Upon the earl’s death she and her sisters stand to lose the luxury of their grand home—and their place on the pedestal of society—to their stepbrother and his social-climbing fiancée. Forced to act quickly, Honor makes a devil’s bargain with the only rogue in London who can seduce her stepbrother’s fiancée out of the Cabots’ lives for good.

An illegitimate son of a duke, George Easton was born of scandal and grows his fortune through dangerous risks. But now he and Honor are dabbling in a perilous dance of seduction that puts her reputation and his jaded heart on the line. And as unexpected desire threatens to change the rules of their secret game, the stakes may become too high even for a notorious gambler and a determined, free-spirited debutante to handle.

      1. I love that game too. I don’t use to play it all the time with my parents. And they would have tournaments with friends. Such.good memories.

  1. I’m absolutely useless at playing cards. All I can play is rummy or snap!!

    However, I do love reading Regency Historical Romance books that feature gambling dens. It means that I’m in for a really good read.

    Thank you for the chance to win.

  2. I enjoy rummy .and when my son was growing up we played a lot of slapjack and old maid,or go fish.The one I didn’t enjoy was when he played 52 pick up.

  3. thanks for the fun post and giveaway! Ummm… growing up, a family fav was Phase 10… got pretty cutthroat when my Grandma played! Thanks for sharing!

  4. In my family, we’re big fans of euchre and Michigan Rummy. And they both get pretty cutthroat. Haha, someone generally quits before the game is over. Thanks for having a giveaway!

  5. I am really looking forward to reading THE TROUBLE WITH HONOR. Thanks for the giveaway!

    My favorite card game is Pinochle.

  6. My favorite card game is The Great Dalmuti. It’s played with its own deck and is very popular with my family.

  7. When I was a kid my family used to play Michigan Rummy – it’s rummy using a board with segments drawn on it and includes a hand of poker. I also played a lot of whist one summer in high school, but don’t remember how to play anymore.

  8. My favorite card game to play is Skip-Bo. My grandmother taught me how to play and I taught my sister. We play almost every night.

  9. I love to play poker. As kids this is one of the first card games my dad taught us. We started out betting with matches and when it progressed to penny bets we really thought we were something.

  10. Growing up, many a summer day was spent playing game after game of Spit — I no longer remember the rules (but I see somebody’s made a YouTube video on how to play…).

    I’d much rather be reading a good book than investigating such silly things on YouTube!

  11. We have a card game we call back ally bridge that was taught to me as a kid and the family has been playing it since. I have taught it to my kids and hope to teach it to my grands( if I ever get any lol)

  12. My most favorite card game is called 2000. The Jokers, the Queen of Spades and deuces are wild. The Queen and Jokers are worth one hundred points, the deuces are 50 points, the other face cards are 10 points and the rest are five points. The game is played like Rummy and a lot of fun. And as far as betting, well I’m not a betting person unless I know for sure that I will win:) Hence, I bet a friend about an actor in a movie and he just knew he was right and bet me $50.00. I didn’t own that particular movie so I had to call Blockbuster.They had it, we went and found out the info we needed and guess who won…ME:) He was not happy but he paid up;) That’s the only time I ever bet money!

  13. My favorite card game is Jacks or better…You can def win big bucks in this game but unfornately I have not played cards in a long time.

  14. When we were younger, and got to visit with my grandfather he would always get out the deck of cards to entertain us. Red Cream Soda, Cracker Jacks, loose change,& a deck of playing cards were a constant no matter what. He sat us down to teach us basics that led up to learning war and rummy, which are definitely some of my fondest memories spent together around the dinner table with family. No large bets, just lots of laughs, and good times. Thanks for contest and good luck to all!!! ☺

    1. That’s awesome! I have similar memories with my grandma. She would have change, Dr Pepper, M&ms , club crackers and thin crust Pizza Hut pizza and she would teach card games

  15. I always had so much fun playing Kanasta. I haven’t played in so long though, I’d need to learn again, but I’d love to start playing again.

  16. We love to play rummy, Tarock and poker. We play for silly bets, or for change, which we use for dinner outside 🙂

  17. Gin Rummy is my favorite card game. I remember sitting at the kitchen table and playing it with my grandma when I was younger. Miss her

  18. My favorite card game at the moment is Uno; we love to play with our kids. We played once on vacation and the game went on for HOURS! We were laughing soooo hard. Other card games I like are Jok-R-Rummy and Apples to Apples.

    I love Julia London’s books, thanks for having this contest!!

  19. My favorite card game is rummy….as children we use to play this with my father. It was his favorite card game to play and it always makes me think of him when we play it.

  20. My favorite card game for purposes of nostalgia is Kings in the Corners. My grandpa taught my sisters and me to play, and once a week, we’d have dinner at his and Grandma’s house, followed by cards. 🙂 Those are some of my cherished childhood memories.

    For purposes of an all-around awesome night with friends, my favorite card game is Apples to Apples. Sure, it can be played seriously, but it’s way more fun when we play to make each other laugh! The answer that makes us laugh the hardest always wins the round. 😀

  21. I love Julia’s books, and ‘The Trouble With Honor’ sounds like another wonderful tale. Love the playing cards, and the cover! Thank you for the chance. Cheers ~ Elizabeth MacGregor-Kirkcaldy

  22. My favorite card game is rummy. Love Julia London’s books and have added The Trouble With Honor to my wishlist.

  23. My favorite card game is War. Don’t laugh, it’s true. I never learned to play any other traditional card games. My kids and I play War all the time when we’re waiting on something.

  24. Favorite card games growing up were hearts, rummy, whist, uno. Now I have taught my kids and they love rummy and phase 10 is a favorite.

  25. I can’t wait to read Honor’s story!I’m not much of a cards player but I remember loving Go Fish when I was young. Thanks for the chance to win!

  26. I’d have to say my favorite card game is Crazy Eight countdown. Oh the endless fun we had with this during junior high and high school. We played it all the time, with big and small groups, every chance we got.

    Definitely looking forward to reading The Trouble With Honor! Thanks for having a giveaway!
