When her gambling father dies, young Adrienne Castle must find a way to support her family.

In desperation, she visits a gaming house in disguise, intent on winning back some of her father’s lost fortune using her skill at cards.

But when her brother falls ill and her luck runs out, Adrienne is forced to seek the aid of a wealthy distant cousin, Lord Dominic Creighton.

With a beautiful fiancée and a promising military career, Dominic has everything he could wish for and, to her surprise, Adrienne finds him generous and warm-hearted.

Despite her poverty and lack of experience in respectable society, Dominic tries to make her feel comfortable in his world.

And as their bond grows, it seems that Adrienne is in danger of staking her heart on a man who is already in love with another…

The Last Waltz by Dorothy Mack is a classic Regency romance with a brave and determined heroine.
