Wicked Wagers Trilogy Book #3 (Long Novella 190 pages)

To live happily ever after...

Henry St. Giles, the Earl of Cravenswood, longs to find his soul mate. Now that his two best friends, both reformed rakes, are happily married, the need becomes an obsession. When they challenge him to find a wife by the end of the season or marry his neighbor, the innocently alluring Lady Amy Shipton, he can't believe his luck. He wins, either way. But a darkened garden, a case of mistaken identity, a drunken kiss, and a dropped emerald earring, leads Henry on a Cinderella hunt. He knows the woman he held in his arms could be the one he's searched for all his life. He just has to find her.

Lady Amy Shipton is determined to marry for love instead of sharing her husband like her mother did. So why did she let her handsome neighbor and romantic fantasy, the Sinful Saint as he's called for his bedroom prowess, seduce her in his garden? And what can she do when in the middle of their passionate encounter; he whispers another woman's name. Now Henry is hunting the owner of the earring Amy left behind, and she's determined to retrieve it before her identity is revealed. She's not about to give her father the ammunition he desperately wants to force her down the aisle.

Editorial Reviews

ARe Cafe - Lady Rhyleigh na
5 Stars - The ultimate test for a historical romance is to make me tear up. This book passed this test and kept on going. Emotional, sweet, sexy and dangerous, this book has it all. I loved their story and passion for each other despite the hardships and trials they endured over the decade spent apart.
Night Owl Reviews - Emma NA
4 Stars - While the first in the series was fun and lighthearted, this one is dark and full of danger. Their attraction is sizzling and the sex scenes are very hot. There are twists and turns as the story races to its conclusion. A lot of emotion and angst in this one. Secondary characters add to the tale and I do hope that we meet Amy again. I can hardly wait for the remaining story in this series.

This was a very good story, and the wisdom Caitlin shows in book 1 and book 2 was awsome. Some of the things she said I thought were very profound.

A new version of Cinderella in which Cinderella doesn't want to be found. Holy crap this book gets to you to the point you never want to put it down. This was a great romance story, I definitely recommend this to all historical romance lovers.

Bronwen Evans just never fails to provide amazing reading. The characters are rich and vibrant, so much life is brought into each and every one of them no matter how minor their role may be. I don't think I will ever get tired of these books!

The story of Henry seems rushed. I always thought Henry was the most boring friend in Wick Wagers. I wasn't impressed with the hurried jump in the bed before we really know each other scene either. The  ridiculous premise that Henry would actually think that Marcus was having an affair with Amy was so cliche especially when Henry knew the agony Marcus and Sabine went through before their happy ever after ending. The only parts I thought was interesting was the continuation of Marcus and Sabine story. I skipped around quiet a bit in this last installment

I don't usually bother to review the books I read, but I think this one needs some feedback. I liked the first book in this series, "To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield" well enough to purchase this book, but this was sorely disappointing. The premise is there; the characters have good backgrounds and I've read other books where a similar plot line has unfolded beautifully. The characters are woefully underdeveloped & the pace of the plot fluctuates drastically. The most consistent and heartwarming relationship was actually the friendship between Amy and Marcus. I really wanted to like this book, but it felt like the author tried too hard to make Amy and Henry a pair perfect in their saintliness which caused everything to be too forced and fall flat. I believe that this author has talent, and I hope this work was just an anomaly.

I loved this series but when henry was sent (by amy no less) to see his former mistress millie and then decided to buy her a cottage and finaance her rretirement, i have to say i was disappointed in this last book. While henry and amy were in love and the rest of the ending was good, its very unrealiistic for any woman to want her husbands x mistress to be happy. I gave it 4 stars for the love story only.

Needs editing.  Otherwise, I would have given it four stars.

I found my thought process and the story line continually interrupted but the many incorrect spellings and the frequent incorrect use of homophones - words sounding alike but spelled differently and with TOTALLY different meanings. In addition, verb tense and use of plural forms was consistently in error. I know that basically this should not matter if the story line is good - which this was but it does matter to me! Although I understand the occasional error, when I purchase an ebook, I don't consider it too much to ask that quality proofreading has taken place.
