Knaves' Wager

Lilith Davenant has ample reason to detest Julian Wyndhurst, Marquess of Brandon: He's exactly the kind of man who hastened the demise of her profligate husband, and the debt he owed to Julian has forced her to an engagement with a wealthy suitor for the sake of supporting her beloved nieces and nephews. Besides that, Lord Julian somehow manages to ignite disturbing...feelings...she's never felt before!

Publisher's Summary

Lilith Davenant has ample reason to detest Julian Wyndhurst, Marquess of Brandon: He's exactly the kind of man who hastened the demise of her profligate husband, and the debt he owed to Julian has forced her to an engagement with a wealthy suitor for the sake of supporting her beloved nieces and nephews. Besides that, Lord Julian somehow manages to ignite disturbing...feelings...she's never felt before!

Lord Julian used his considerable skills and cunning in the war against Napoleon. Now he's obliged to use the same talents to save his young cousin from a disastrous marriage to a scheming mistress - who makes him a wager: If Julian can seduce the famously icy Lady Lilith Davenant, the lady will release his cousin from the engagement.

But very quickly, Julian discovers Lilith's hidden warmth, kindness, and humor. Will he be able to prove his heart to her before she learns of his recklessly shameless wager?

    "Delightful book marred by poor production quality"
    Any additional comments?

    Oh, what a delightful book! Writing in 1990, the young Loretta Chase was not yet at the top of her game, but there are flashes of the brilliance to come. And as is so often the case, Chase creates a hero who is appalling and seductive at the same time and a heroine who is not the least bit cowed by him.

    The narrator is very good, but I have to mention that the production quality of this book is simply not up to the standards expected of a first-class author like Loretta Chase. Unlike her more recent titles, this one, along with Isabella, is self-published and not produced by Tantor or Blackstone. I certainly hope that Ms. Chase or her agent sees the reviews and takes action on future audio books.

    Loretta Chase is HR royalty and she deserves better. Don't let this complaint prevent you from listening, however. You'll have lots of fun!

    Story
    "Two thumbs way up"

    Her style of writing is very similar to Georgette Heyer so if you don’t like GH, you won’t like this book. Just like GH, there is also no passion, minus a few kisses, in the entire story and that’s the only thing I wished to see added to this book. The rest including writing, story, character development were all excellent. I highly recommend this book.

    "I fell asleep"

    I kept falling asleep throughout the entire book. Not a horrid book by any means. It was super slow with not a lot of excitement. I fell asleep during the "peak" in the story, mind you I was not tired 10 minutes before. I do love the author and WILL get more of her work but this one will not be read by me again.

    "Nice story- poor quality sound environment"

    I enjoyed this story and the narration was good; however the environment that it was recorded in was very poor. The narrator sounded "tinny" and that distracted the listener from the story...or at least it took me a while to get used to it.

    "A Loretta Chase Gem"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    A Loretta Chase novel that showcases her genius for witty dialogue and realistic character creation! The romantic path for Julian Wyndhurst, the 'knave' and the emotionally guarded Lilith Davenant is full of challenge, simmering sexual chemistry, and touching personal growth.

    "So good!"

    Great story--funny, sharp, and sweet. And an excellent narrator for the characters. A fun regency romance!
