The Wager by Lily Maxton

Release date: August 11, 2014
Publisher: Entangled: Scandalous
Genre: Historical (Regency) Romance

A seductive wager…winner takes all

London, 1818

Anne Middleton never plays by the rules. She is willful when she should be obedient and unabashed when she should be decorous. Worse still, she can never resist a good wager...or a very naughty book. And Confessions of a Courtesan is about as sensational and risqué as a book can be.

Michael Grey—the Earl of Thornhill—had once courted Anne's sweet and modest sister. But whilst Anne is certainly no lady of decorum, her bold impulsiveness slips through his armor, and propriety is forgotten. Now he too is immersed in the book of forbidden delights, where each page is an invitation to sin and a guide to pleasures unknown...

Roused by heady desire, Michael tempts Anne in a way she cannot resist—a wager. Thus begins a game of chance, where coins have been replaced by a currency that is far more illicit. And the stakes of seduction are dangerous indeed...

My Rating: 5 Roses

A short, sweet, and delightful read, The Wager was a lovely historical romance. It was a thoroughly enjoyable novella that I really liked.

Both Anne and Michael were great. Anne was strong and unwilling to compromise who she was for the sake of society. Michael, conversely, was sick of changing who he was to fit society's mold and decided to simply do what made him happy. They were both wonderful characters that I really liked.

The romance was lovely. Anne and Michael were so perfect for each other, not to mention the hot chemistry between them. I thought they were a sweet couple.

The plot went by quickly and I was hooked the entire way through. The story was wonderfully sweet and enjoyable, and the ending was just perfect.

The Wager was a charming novella, light, quick, and enjoyable the entire way though. I really liked this lovely read. Romance lovers, this is a book you'll definitely want to check out.
