Richard and Emma, the two main characters in 'The Wicked Wager', are very appealing, and so too are the secondary characters and their developing romance. The mix of misunderstandings, disguises and artifice is done in an amusing way, particularly in Richard's awakening to what it is really like to be a servant. The end of the novel suggests a sequel with another interesting, amoral character.

This was ideal for a relaxing read after a hectic Christmas. Good fire, nice pot of tea and an afternoon spent in escapism

Not normally my type of book but really enjoyed it. Good bit of escapism, well drawn characters and some humour.

I have enjoyed the story line of this author's books, they were hard to put down and would not hesitate to read more and recommend her novels and if you like these sort of story lines like I do then it's the book for you. I will be more than happy to read more of this authors works

I gave up on this book about 30% of the way through, which is very unusual for me. I'm glad it was cheap. The writing style is quite clumsy; mostly not outright wrong, but clunky. I found the characters two dimensional, inconsistent and unconvincing. And I became increasingly frustrated with the author's apparent disinterest in historical accuracy, both factual and behavioural. I really only know it was supposed to be set in Regency England because of the sub-title. Here are just a few examples. Note that there are some spoilers from the early chapters in this review.
The book commences with an earl (the hero) leaping out of a window at a ball with his breeches in his hand. Though no explicit mention is made of the rest of his clothing, the reported interaction between his bottom and a bush, coupled with a comment that his valet and coachman would be relieved that he has his pants, because "they were getting tired of finding him lurking around of street corners wearing only his unmentionables or, at times, nothing at all" suggests that he is at least partially naked. This raises several questions. Firstly, why would his valet be out with his coachman and how do they know to try to find him lurking at all? Second, are we really expected to believe that an earl is frequently to be found on the street without most or all of his clothes? Third, since he doesn't seem to be even close to properly dressed (remember, he is in the garden at a ball), why would he think it appropriate to approach an unknown lady? I appreciate that he is supposed to be a rake, but all this does seem to be beyond believable.
The heroine's father is the heir to a duke, ("The duke had no other male heirs ..., hence, the title was sure to pass to Lord Grey.

Quite enjoyed her Penelope book but this one no way. I got to 30% and then gave up. If the author's next book is free I will attempt to read it but will not pay for anymore of her books.
