Book Two in the Wicked Wagers trilogy

They Say Revenge is Sweet…

Marcus Danvers, the Marquis of Wolverstone, is renowned for his cynical demeanor. It's rumored that long ago, a beautiful woman broke his heart. Now he lives life for pleasure. He’s the consummate, handsome rake. If anyone tries to get too close—let’s just say his bark is as bad as his bite. That is, until the beautiful, as she is deceitful, Contessa Orsini re-enters his life with a wager he cannot resist. When he wins, he’ll have Sabine exactly where he wants her—in his bed and at his mercy.

Forced to return to England and avenge her father’s death, Sabine knows the one person who can help her is the only man she has ever loved—Marcus. The man who hates her with as much passion as he once loved her. But Marcus doesn’t know that by winning the wager he’ll also be getting his revenge. For there are some secrets best left buried…

A 39,500 word, 130 page novella. Edited by Caroline Fuller.

Editorial Reviews

Amazon - Lisa Wolf
Bronwen Evans is quickly become a favorite author of mine. She seems to have a talent for mixing heated romance with topics that are hard to experience. As the secret Sabine is hiding is what she believes to be shameful, I thought I had it figured out as the clues were dropped but it still had a bit of a twist to it that I always appreciate. Sabine has grown into a strong woman that will stop at nothing to protect what is most dear to her and if that means keeping the truth from Marcus, than she
Night Owl Reviews - Emma May
This is the second in the Wicked Wagers series. While the first one was fun and lighthearted, this one is dark and full of danger. Sabine has paid the ultimate price for something that was not her fault. I enjoyed the interplay between Marcus and Sabine. 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. I can hardly wait for the remaining story in this series.

    To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone is book two in the Wicked Wa

    To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone is book two in the Wicked Wagers trilogy and it is a dark delightful addition.

    Marcus Danvers, the Marquis of Wolverstone, is a man who takes what he wants and doesn’t care who is left wanting.  A past hurt has changed him forever and if his cold demeanor doesn’t suit you, well just walk away.  He will make no apologies and will not ask for forgiveness.  His tough exterior begins to crack when the reason for his cold heart reenters his life…Sabine.

    Sabine Fournier has returned to London with revenge, secrets and unrequited love in her heart.  Unfortunately they are all connected to one rake, Marcus Danvers.  She must beg the former love of her life to help her get revenge on the man who ruined her future and along the way keep all her life altering secrets to herself to save the people she loves.  But first she must convince the Marquis of Wolverstone to help her.

    Revenge is never sweet and these two learn that the hard way.  While they work together, Sabine keeps her secrets close to her heart and Marcus must just try to protect his.  Family and friends are forward with their opinions and help, but in the end they must do it alone.  Unforeseen problems arise that endanger both Marcus and Sabine.  Will it be too late to save themselves and their love?

    To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone is a bit darker than the first in the series, To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield.  While I think the first could be categorized as playful competition, this one could be hurtful vengeance.  I think the extreme shift has turned many people off from the second in the trilogy, but if you have read the first one, you would remember that Marcus was rather forbearing and morose.  I have no problem enjoying this story because of it.  I think if Ms. Evans had done a complete reversal with his character, I would have faulted her for it.  She did Marcus justice by sticking with his character and following through.

    While To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield seemed like a complete package to me, To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone left me a little wanting.  Their past was too hurtful and secretive to be solved in a novella.  The story was still well written, but sudden changes of heart and forgiveness seemed too fast and forced.  Ms. Evans still did a nice job with the word count she was allowed, but I think the story would have been more fulfilling as a full novel.  Am I disappointed in the book? Not really and I would still recommend it, but I just wanted more depth to go with so much pain.  

    I am looking forward to the last in the series, To Challenge the Earl of Cravenswood.  It tells the story of the last of the bachelors, Henry St. Giles, the Earl of Cravenswood.  On that note I have something to mention, Ms. Evans has released the complete trilogy in one novel – Wicked Wagers.  It’s available now, so if you are interested I would recommend that you get the complete series in one great collection.

    Favorite book of the trilogy. Sabine's and Marcus' story was much more interesting with more happening than met the eye. 
    Also, in my opinion, Marcus Danvers was the sexiest of the three.

    I thought it was a wonderful story, but I almost put it down dur

    I thought it was a wonderful story, but I almost put it down during the first chapter as I do not like the "F" word in m novels. That is the reason I read books written by women instead of men. You can put your thoughts to paper without that horrible overused word that we are all hearing too much. I finished it despite two uses of this word that most women don't like in their romance stories... and I was glad I did because the story was wonderful. Will I read this author again? Probably not if the language is rough. Sorry, that's just me.
