The Earl's Scandalous WagerThe Earl’s Scandalous Wager by Wareeze Woodson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I love reading historical fiction and am pleased to have discovered a new author having thoroughly enjoyed this novel by Wareeze Woodson. This wonderfully written story is full of historical detail and time period social niceties all of which added to the feeling of being immersed in this story and the era. Both the characters and the setting were bought to life by the authors descriptive narrative and I felt engaged with the characters, especially the likeable Emily. Emily Riventon is pledged by her stepbrother and guardian as collateral for his wager in a game of chance. Emily is shocked that both her stepbrother and the other gents involved in the game are willing to use Emily in a bet and tries hard not to show her terror, especially when her guardian looses both the bet and her. The handsome Earl of Lenbridge is the winner and wins Emily, but what does he intend on doing with his prize. Emily does not know what her future holds and whether she will become a mistress or a wife. The storyline flows well and the exciting plot kept me happily turning the pages and I was hooked from page one. I definitely recommend this enjoyable and engaging page turner.
