Overview

Winner, National Readers' Coice Award for Best Novella, 2001!

Determined to convince his trustees that he is ready to settle down and take control of his estate, Julian Ardleigh, Viscount Debenham, proposes marriage to Harriet “Harry” Woodford, his childhood friend.

Since her one disastrous London Season, Harry has been content to live in the country breeding and training horses. She has no intention of marrying anyone, least of all her rakish friend.

Julian persists, so Harry tells him she will marry him if he can avoid so much as kissing another woman for three months. The wager is on, but neither gambles on losing their hearts!

THE WEDDING WAGER was originally published in the Zebra Regency anthology HIS BLUSHING BRIDE, a Romantic Times Top Pick. A sweet traditional Regency novella, it won the National Readers' Choice Award for Best Novella in 2001. Length: about 20,000 words. Sensuality: sweet (kisses).

Editorial Reviews

Romance Reviews Today - Susan Lantz
For the anthology His Blushing Bride, in which The Wedding Wager first appeared:

“’Tis the season for weddings and His Blushing Bride offers readers three charming stories of romance and happily-ever-after. Each tale is delightfully different, but all are well-written, with refreshingly original plots and intriguing characters. For an entertaining, thoroughly enjoyable celebration of love and marriage, I recommend His Blushing Bride.”
Romantic Times
