From Back Cover…
'The first man to walk through this door will be the one I date for a month...'
  Jacky's bet with her friend Liz was reckless - especially when that first manturned out to be Leo Kozakis. Jacky had gambled on Leo's love ten yearsbefore, but he had cruelly rejected her. The sensible thing would be toforget the wager, but Jacky found herself overpowered by desire. She toldherself it was for revenge; she was more than a match now for the arrogantGreek tycoon, wasn't she, and couldn't possibly want him in any otherway...?
 'What the hell is the matter with you?' Leo spoke furiously.
'You think a few dinners and a show entitles you to a woman's body. Whenand if I have a lover I'll want a lot more than a couple of dates and intobed,' Jacy flung back at him.'My apologies. I forgot that all women have a price. But if it's marriageyou're holding out for, don't hold your breath.'
Gamble on Passionby Jacqueline Baird
, everyone.' Replacing the telephone receiver, Liz glaredthreateningly around the crowded lounge of her apartment. 'Ssh. That wasthe porter. Tom is on his way up.' Her glance rested on the attractiveblonde standing by the door. 'Dim the lights, quick,' she commanded,pushing her way through the crush of people to join her friend. Jacy switched off the light and glanced down at her hostess for theevening.

I hope... But what about our bet are you still game?' Jacy glanced around the crowd of partygoers assembled in the large,comfortable room, all friends of Liz and Tom. 'Of course I am.' She grinned.'But in all fairness to you I should point out that, as all the guests havearrived and all the single men here are my friends, it's no contest. The firstone to walk through this door will be the one I date for a month. I'm boundto win.'Liz smiled mischievously. 'I don't mind. I'll take the chance if you will.''Shake on it, partner.' Jacy grasped her friend's hand, shaking itvigorously, and couldn't resist adding, smugly, 'The
is as good asmine.'The door swung open and Tom, a tall blond-haired man, strode into theroom. 'What the hell-
 The room erupted to the strains of 'Happy Birthday to You' as Jacyclicked the light back on, and she stopped singing in mid-note, her eyeswidening in horror at the black-haired, dark-eyed man who walked inbehind Tom. Oh, no, she groaned inwardly, it couldn't be... She tried tosidle backwards into the crush of people surrounding the birthday-boy, butin the enthusiasm of the moment, to her horror, she was pushed slap-upagainst the tall dark man she was hoping to avoid.
