When Julian persists, she challenges him to prove he can be faithful, but neither gambles on losing their hearts!

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

Meet the Author

Elena Greene grew up reading anything she could lay her hands on, including her mother's Georgette Heyer novels. She also enjoyed writing but decided to pursue a more practical career in software engineering. Fate intervened when she was sent on a three year international assignment to England, where she was inspired to start writing romances set in the Regency. Her books have won the National Readers' Choice Award, the Desert Rose Golden Quill and the Colorado Romance Writers' Award of Excellence. Her Super Regency, LADY DEARING'S MASQUERADE, won RT Book Club's award for Best Regency Romance of 2005 and made the Kindle Top 100 list in 2011. When not writing, Elena enjoys swimming, cooking, meditation, playing the piano, volunteer work and craft projects. She lives in upstate New York with her two daughters and more yarn, wire and beads than she would like to admit.
