Book 2, The Wagers of Sin - The Wagers of Sin

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


When you gamble at love . . .

When Hugh Deveraux discovers his newly inherited earldom is bankrupt, he sets about rebuilding the family fortune—in the gaming hells of London. But the most daring wager he takes isn’t at cards. A wealthy tradesman makes a tantalizing offer: marry the man’s spinster daughter and Hugh’s debts will be paid and his fortune made. The only catch is that she must never know about their agreement . . .

You risk losing your heart . . .

Heiress Eliza Cross has given up hope of marriage until she meets the impossibly handsome Earl of Hastings, her father’s new business partner. The earl is everything a gentleman should be, and is boldly attentive to her. It doesn’t take long for Eliza to lose her heart and marry him.

But when Eliza discovers that there is more to the man she loves—and to her marriage—her trust is shattered. And it will take all of Hugh’s power to prove that now his words of love are real . . .

Love it

What a great story!!! Cannot wait for the next one in the series!!!

Loved it!

I loved everything about this book. The hero is desperately in need for money, the heroine is rich but outside society and her father is manipulative - YES it’s trope, but it’s sweet and with some twist, and it WORKS. The characters are well developed (especially if you have read the previous books, though they’re not necessary to the plot), the struggles are real, the conflicts are inevitable and satisfying. A great read and highly recommended!!

Loved this Story

Gambling often does not turn out well when the person is desperate to make money. Or so they say!! Hugh Deveraux, Earl of Hastings inherited a bankrupt estate and needed to earn some funds quickly and marry a heiress for money. He had loved his father and his family had always been a happy one, so when he realized there was no money for his sister's dowry or to take care of his mother, he did what he thought was best. As the best laid plans go, he was soon indebted to Edward Cross and the bargain was for him to court and wed his daughter and never let her know their arrangement!
So you know how this might go, don't you? Hugh does meet Eliza Cross and starts courting her.. Eliza is such a sweet girl and had no hopes of attracting a suitor. But she starts to fall for Hugh and everything starts happening.
I loved this story and it is one of my favorite tropes of the marriage for convenience and tangle it seems to always cause! Caroline Linden gives us a well written heartwarming tale that will pull you through the pages as quickly as you can read. As I turned the last page all I could do was sigh and hope that the next book in this series will be written soon! I read this through Edelweiss
