Max Ravenscar is a renowned gamester.

The first to admit he is entirely void of a romantic disposition, he regards all eligible females with indifference and unconcern.

But then he meets the woman his young cousin is bent on marrying - the beautiful Deborah Grantham who also happens to be the mistress of her aunt's gaming establishment.

And he finds that none of his experience in risk or gambling has prepared him for such a worthy or beguiling opponent ...
