All bets are on love this Christmas...
Sabina Bradford grew up touring the Continent with her parents, living a hundred lives as a thief, a fortune teller, and an oracle. Now grown and a nurse at London Hospital in Whitechapel, she's put away her make-believe for a life of caring for the sick--until a misunderstanding ends with her fired and left to the East End streets just weeks before Christmas.

Hedging his bet that she's the solution to his new and unwanted ward, he asks her to be his wife.

But what he doesn't see coming is falling in love with Sabina just in time for Christmas.

Sabina has one last role to play, but as she falls for Julian, their marriage feels less and less like one of convenience. Julian has a decision to make: to go all in on a chance at love or lose it all...
