Her life was charmed, until it was not. Near destitute after the sudden death of her wastrel husband, Lady Pipworth must find a way to support herself and her young nieces until her brother returns home to assume his role as head of the family. Thanks to her three brothers that raised her, Adalia’s one outstanding skill in life is gambling, and with a dower house now at her disposal, plans to fill the coffers—scandal begetting or not—begin to take shape. A mysterious duke with one goal in mind. The Duke of Dellon is interested in nothing more than fulfilling the needs of running his ducal estate. As for a wife and an heir—he will get to it, eventually—as long as it fits neatly into his orderly life. But when a long-ago vow rears, landing upon his shoulders, he obligingly sets out to do what is required of him—stop Lady Pipworth from the foolery of operating a gaming house. And, if he should need to, marry the woman. A vow invoked from the grave leads to a secret that could destroy everything. Her gaming house a success, the last thing Adalia wants is an arrogant duke poking into her affairs. But when a sudden death threatens the very thing she holds dearest, can she possibly trust the one man that can save her and her nieces? Note: The books in the Revelry’s Tempest series by K.J. Jackson are each stand-alone stories and can be read individually in any order.

Der Graf von Monte Christo ist ein Abenteuerroman von Alexandre Dumas. Das Werk hat viele nachfolgende Künstler beeinflusst und wurde zu einem Klassiker der Weltliteratur. Zur Handlung: Der junge Seemann Edmond Dantès kehrt mit der "Pharao"", einem Schiff des Reeders Morrel, am 24. Februar 1815 nach Marseille zurück. Dantès, der an Bord Erster Offizier ist, genießt die Wertschätzung Morrels und soll zum Kapitän befördert werden. Auch sein privates Glück scheint perfekt: Er liebt die schöne Katalanin Mercédès, die Hochzeit des Paares ist beschlossene Sache. Während der Fahrt der "Pharao"" ist der bisherige Kapitän Leclère, ein Anhänger Napoleons, verstorben. Auf dem Sterbebett vertraute er Dantès ein Paket an und befahl ihm, es dem Großmarschall Henri-Gratien Bertrand auf der Insel Elba auszuhändigen, wohin Napoleon ins Exil verbannt wurde. Dantès erfüllt den letzten Wunsch des Kapitäns, erhält auf Elba wiederum einen Brief Napoleons und den Auftrag, diesen in Paris einem bestimmten Mann zu überbringen.... Alexandre Dumas der Ältere (1802-1870) war ein französischer Schriftsteller. Ein Markenzeichen von Dumas' Romanen sind fiktive oder pseudohistorische Protagonisten (zum Beispiel der Musketier d'Artagnan), deren Abenteuer in einen Kontext historischer Ereignisse und historischer Persönlichkeiten gestellt werden. Die bekanntesten, immer wieder aufgelegten und nicht nur von Jugendlichen gelesenen Romane sind: Die drei Musketiere, Zwanzig Jahre danach, Königin Margot, Der Graf von Monte Christo und Der Mann mit der eisernen Maske, Das Halsband der Königin.
