Dylan Blake knows he is hated by his father. But, he is
unprepared to be cut off when he comes home a war hero as well
as a Captain after selling his commission. He spent more than
10 years in the Army and now just wants to retire and manage
one of the family estates, or someone else’s. He foolishly
takes on a bet to get Lady Natalia to dance two dances in one
evening with him. He feels that with his charm it will be one
way that he can finally get some funds. He doesn’t count on
being rebuked by the lady and then charmed by her whole being.
Sinclair is the only child of the Duke of Clayton and
therefore has a huge dowry. She knows that is why many of the
‘ton’ are seeking her out for marriage. She wants to be loved
for herself and not her funds. She has always been intrigued
by Captain Blake and the moment she sees him she wants to talk
to him. She initially is standoffish after meeting him, as
his eyes looked as dead as every other fortune seeker, but is
won over by his charms.
everything be ruined by one indiscretion? Will they be able
to buck society and be together and find the love they both
enjoyed The Wager. I read book one in the
series before book two and I missed some of the suspense that
the story intended. As a stand along book it is wonderful,
but don’t make my mistake and read book two before book one.
The author does a wonderful job of keeping true to the
storyline and characters. Many series books seem to lose some
of their continuity but this one was ‘spot on’. For those who
love a tale of the ‘ton’ and want to see a second son have a
good ending this is the historical book for you! Pick up
The Wager first.
