Three wagers. Three couples. Let the bets begin.

Three new Regency Romances from Donna Hatch, Heather B. Moore, and Michele Paige Holmes.

A WAGER FOR LOVE by Donna Hatch
For once, Phillip would like to be seen as more than the younger brother of a duke. When he unexpectedly meets the one girl in all London who doesn’t give two figs for his rank in society, she won’t give him the time of day. Determined to gain her attention, he accidentally tips over her boat and dumps her into a river. Not the best way to convince a lady of worth that he is a gentleman of promise. Frustrated, Phillip makes a rash wager with a friend: he vows he’ll not only gain her forgiveness, but her hand in marriage by the end of the Season. The stakes are high in this romantic Regency romp!

THE FINAL WAGER by Heather B. Moore
When Victor Roland, Earl of Locken, enters into a game of twenty-one with Lord Southill, the stakes get quickly out of control. Before Victor knows it, Southill is betting the dowry of his sister. While completely illegal, Victor is mostly insulted, so he does what any gentleman of the ton should do. He punches Southill out. Problem is, Southill is in so much debt that he’d been kicked out of his townhouse earlier that day. So Victor is forced to deliver Southill at his estate outside of London… only to meet Southill’s sister, Lady Juliet, a woman who Victor now wishes he’d bet on.

AN IMPROBABLE WAGER by Michele Paige Holmes
Sherborne Alexander Rowley III has come home to marry his neighbor—and solve his financial problems in one fell swoop. Love doesn’t figure into the equation, only the need to save his family’s estate. The reserved Miss Emily Montgomery seems willing enough, leaving the only possible obstacle to Sherborne’s success his childhood friend, Eli Linfield, and the wager they made long ago that Eli would be the one to marry Emily. When the timely birth of a colt, Emily’s mischievous sister Sophia, and Emily herself all conspire to ruin Sherborne’s plans, one night of mayhem unravels far more than their betrothal. Emily is not as demure as he believed, nor is Eli what he has pretended these many years. Yet the future for all may yet be bright. Sherborne might even wager on it.

    I enjoyed the book.

    A WAGER FOR LOVE by Donna Hatch
    Phillip wanted to be loved and appreciated for himself and Meredith wanted to never be fooled again. Handy that Phillip falls for a woman that cares nothing for rank and wealth. Much of that is because she doesn’t think she is worthy of high ranking wealthy people. But she just isn’t interested in class hopping. And handy for Meredith that Phillip is honest in his interest in her and not looking to seduce her or seek after her dowry. Phillip is rather cute in his bumbling ways which start by him knocking her into the river. I liked him. Meredith was over zealous in protecting herself and others from fortune seekers but her heart is in the right place. In some of her hot/cold behavior I wondered why Phillip wanted to continue to seek her out but he was smitten.

    THE FINAL WAGER by Heather B. Moore
    Victor is awfully generous in footing the bill of the no good gambling drunk’s party so the sister can have a chance at marriage. But I thought he gave up a little too easily at the end when he didn’t even explain himself to Juliet so she could make an informed decision on who to marry. And why didn’t he have some contact with her to try to prevent her marrying someone else? This made him a little less desirable to me.

    AN IMPROBABLE WAGER by Michele Paige Holmes
    This was probably my favorite of the three. I loved Eli and his willingness to work hard and sass Sherborne. I thought Eli’s love at such a young age was sweet. Really a stupid wager to make at such a young age but sweet that he did. I liked that Emily was willing , in the end, to stand up for herself in deciding who she would marry. And I was surprised to learn that even though her sister seems like a louse that she really had her sister’s best interest at heart.

    Sex: marital innuendo, kisses
    Language: I don’t think so
    Violence: a little, mild.

    I received an advance copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it. All opinions are my own.
