Known for his charm and silver tongue, Reese Delacy, the Earl of Darling, wagers that he can make any proper girl fall in love with him in less than a fortnight. Unfortunately, the boast catches the ear of the notorious gossip behind the Whispers of Lady X. In no time, details of Reese's wager spreads through Town, making him a pariah in short order. All seems lost until he stumbles upon a Bermudian beauty who is seemingly unaware of his scandalous wager.


With control of the Caribbean salt trade hanging in the balance, Miss Cara Beckett, left the pink, sandy beaches of Bermuda to represent the interests of her family's empire and to solicit the support of parliament. She'd bargained for batting her lashes and flirting with peers, but she'd never imagined she'd become embroiled in a reckless wager with a handsome earl that has captured all of Society's interest.

Reese Delacy, the Earl of Darling, bets that he can make any proper girl fall in love with him within ten days. The news of this bet is gossip among all the ton and is printed on the paper by Lady X. Now no proper lady or her parents will have anything to do with him. How is he to win this bet? Cara Beckett is one of the Beckett Salt heiresses in London to plead her case in Parliament, that the Turks should not have to pay the Bahamians a tax on the salt that is exported. Her father is dead and the decision will affect their livelihood. She is staying with The Duchess of Hythe who is aware of this bet and decides to help Cara and win a net she has made at the same time. She wants Cara to play up to Reese to get him to fall in love with her. Since Reese is so handsome and charming, it is not a chore to do this. She charms Reese and several other men. She needs votes for her business. Reese is jealous of the others attention and realises that he loves her and must tell her the truth about the bet but Cara has to tell him the truth about her bet for the Duchess.. Will they forgive each other? And why is the Duchess so interested in Cara and Reese's relationship? I adored this book. It was fun and I loved the complications that ended in a HEA. I received this book from Net Galley and Night Shift Publishing for a honest review and no compensation otherwise.

A wager made between gentlemen. Another made between ladies. What could the outcome be? Reese,the Earl of Darling made a wager to charm a lady to fall in love with him in 10 days. Yes, he was a little full of himself but thought it would be easy with his charm. Miss Cara Beckett had traveled from her home in Bermuda to try to solicit votes for the islands salt trade that was her family’s livelihood. In order to achieve her goal she needs help and Reese looks like the perfect target. What happens when two people with their own agenda get together? Fireworks and some unwanted attention!! Although a novella this story packed a lot of emotion and humor in with the characters coming to life and grabbing your attention. I am looking forward to several of the secondary characters having their own story. Lori Dykes

This Regency novella features an unwise bet and interference from the mysterious society gossip writer, Lady X. Reese Delacy, Lord Darling, unexpectedly got roped in to betting that he could win a proper lady's heart in ten days. Since Lady X revealed the bet in her scandal sheet, no proper ladies would even associate with him. Enter Cara Beckett, newly arrived from Bermuda to try to influence any peer she can find to vote for Bermuda's claims to the Turks Islands salt pans. Maybe she hasn't heard about the bet, and Lord Darling is willing to introduce her to all the right people while he gets to know her better. It was a lot of fun to see Cara and Reese dance around each other, each with their own objectives. This story was also very emotional because Cara had been through so much in her life, and then her treatment by so-called society was shocking and heart wrenching. I read this when it appeared in the anthology, It Started With a Whisper. This was my favorite story of that collection.
