My rating: 5 of 5 stars

The Earl’s Scandalous Wager by Wareeze Woodson is a historical period romance that does not let the readers down. In addition to romance genre themes, there are also some mystery and drama when it comes to family betrayals with all the scheming, and plotting. The beginning starts out with the main character Emily Brumville being practically given away in a wager to settle her stepbrother’s debts. Phillip Beckley Benton is the Earl of Lenbridge is the winner of this little bet and Emily was the reluctant prize to be won. Despite these unsavory turn of events, they find themselves in a budding romance as newlyweds. It does seem the family may have other ideas as readers follow these two characters. For me, this was an enjoyable read. I recommend this book to adults who enjoy period fiction and historical romance.

This is the first time reading a Wareeze Woodson book. It pulled me in rather quickly. I give Emily, the heroine of the story, full credit of said pulling me in. She is a likable character that you can’t help to feel for. When you meet dear Emily she is put up as collateral by her guardian to pay his debts. (Rude and most definitely had to be illegal.) But with a stroke of luck or horror, depending on whom you ask, Earl of Lenbridge wins. The progresses at a fast pace and is an easy read. I definitely recommend it to other historical romance lovers

This is the first book I have read by this author and the first historical romance I have ever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It is about a girl called Emily that is put up as a prize for a wager by her guardian so he can sort out his debts, but her worst nightmare happens when her step brother loses and she is given to the Earl of Lenbridge. What is the Earl’s plans for Emily? will she have to marry him? Although she never wanted to go with him, she can’t deny they have great chemistry together. I cant wait for the next book

I loved this book! Period romances are always a gamble for me, some I can get into and some fall short, this book was definitely a win. I liked the fact that this story was not only romance and steamy moments, there was betrayal, plotting of murder, evil family members and a spy. Philip loves Emily, even though he doesn’t admit it readily, the way he acts towards her, anyone can tell. But the way he acts towards her.. sometimes I wish Emily would tell him off, but that would not be appropriate for the times. Annalise is a nasty mess, and throughout the whole book I was wishing she would get slapped, but I guess her fate was worse since she was in a way abandoned, or what I would qualify as abandoned when she is found out. Emily is a sweetheart and handled everything so perfectly, I hate that she had to put up with Annalise and sometimes her husband’s actions and words. I can’t wait to see what this author has in store next.

At first I wasn’t completely into the storyline with Emily being won in a bet to absolve her stepbrother of his debts. However reminding myself that this was typical of the times I managed to overcome this and actually really get into the story. The writing is very descriptive in a way that completely immerses you in the story and the characters are written with depth and this helped me connect with them and engage in their lives. i enjoyed finding out about what would happen after the Earl one his bet and where Emily fit in his life. Fans of Bridgerton and Austen will enjoy this.

This was quite an interesting read from the very beginning. The Earl draws you in with his gallantry and then his misunderstanding of the workings of the female mind! (I feel like the author captured how men think eloquently!) Emily is someone you want to be friends with because of all the misfortunes that happen to her. You want to cheer her on and encourage her.

This was a romance novel without being over the top explicit. I appreciated that, too!

The Earl’s Scandalous Wager by Wareeze Woodson is a tale of a young woman of noble birth who is put up as a wager by her stepbrother due to his gambling problem. When we first meet Emily Brumville, she is in considerable distress because the situation her stepbrother has put her in. Outwardly, she strives to not look so worried & scared. Emily cannot believe all of the gentleman at the table are actually going through with this wager.

This story and how the main characters, Emily Brumville and Phillip Beckely Benton, Earl of Lenbridge start learning about each other and interacting caught my attention right away. I couldn’t wait to read more about the newlyweds and how they build their relationship to each other’s benefit and hopefully eventually to love each other. To add to the mix, Phillip’s family members, the woman Phillip had planned to marry, and Emily’s stepbrother, all seem to be under suspicion as the one causing mischief against the newlyweds. Who could be so against this union? What would be their motive?

I really enjoyed this book. I hope you do too.

The Earl’s Scandalous Wager, by Wareeze Woodson, is a historical romance you won’t soon forget. When Emily is used as a wager in a bet, she can’t believe the men would follow through and allow it. It becomes all too real when Emily’s stepbrother loses the bet and she is now the property of the Earl of Lenbridge.

What is in Emily’s future? Will she be traded again? Will she be forced to marry this man. Worse yet, will she be his mistress? I love the way this story played out and can’t wait to delve into more stories by Wareeze.

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.

The Earl’s Scandalous Wager by Wareeze Woodson. This book was so good. Its the story of Emily Riventon who is of Nobel Birth and she is put up for wager by her stepbrother due to his horrible gambling problems. The Earl of Lenbridge has rightly won Emily in this game all due to her stupid stepbrother who is her guardian. Emily is terrified. Phillip Beckley Benton is the Earl of Lenbridge and he can’t believe the luck he’s having. If he wins Emily’s as his prize he will be in seventh heaven. As the two get to know each other they realize they might actually like on another. The only question is will Emily be his wife or his mistress? The two realize that even thought they got together thru very unconventional circumstances they might actually have a chance at love. Will Emily realize her stepbrother may have done the best thing ever for her? Read The Earl’s Scandalous Wager to find out!
