The action now focusses on Georgiana Eversley. In the course of a family visit to her brother Hugh and his wife, she meets the local doctor’s locum. Getting off on the wrong foot, she makes an ill-advised wager with her younger brother Freddy that she can bring the doctor to the point of proposing to her in the course of her visit.

As Georgiana is an arrant flirt (and has received seven proposals from six men), she is confident in winning wager - apart from one thing: she has finally fallen in love.

But when the handsome young Dr. John Graham let it be known that he didn't care for her at all, Georgiana's hurt pride demanded revenge. And so it was that she accepted a daring warger to prove that she could indeed entice the young doctor and jilt him savagely as well. But Georgiana was unaware of the whims of passion and unprepared for the dark and startling reward of a gambling heart...
