Publisher's Summary

The riskier the wager....

Everyone knows that Gemma Templeton is a wonderful, cheerful, friendly young woman who is well worth one’s acquaintance. She is vibrant and warm, and plays the violin with exquisite talent. The only thing she lacks is a husband, and time is growing short for her in that regard. When an interesting opportunity arises from an unlikely source, Gemma’s future is suddenly far more appealing, and a small wager makes all the difference. 

The sweeter the return....

What everyone does not know is that a certain man of a less warm reputation is very much interested in changing Gemma’s unmarried state, and he doesn’t care what anybody says. Lucas Sinclair, Lord Blackmoor, is a dark mark upon the face of society, and his unexpected interest in Gemma leaves many to wonder if his motives don't hide some sinister purpose. He takes her ridiculous wager, and will stop at nothing to see it paid.

Yet Another Winner

This one had my nerves a little more jangled than the others. I did get quite frustrated at the negative depiction each of the main characters had of themselves but, I suppose that was the author's intent. I can only hope the next book is about either the Grangers or Lord Marlow. Hurry and push to Audible. (Please and thank you.)

Meh

The arrangement series books are definite fluff books. Not much substance, but enjoyable. However, this book was not my favorite by any means. I had a difficult time enjoying and paying attention to the story line. I just finished it the other day and can’t even tell you what it’s about. The rest of the arrangement series was fun! I think this author pushes out so many books that she doesn’t consider a lot about the substance. I think she has wonderful story ideas, but could use a publisher to help edit and add more substance to the writing.

Confusing

The male character was charming until they got married then totally switched for no reason. He is totally inconsistent, frustrating and way too self absorbed. Book may have had some redeeming qualities if it was MUCH shorter. I skipped quite a few chapters and still the same self-pity. I had enjoyed other books in this series (although they are all too long) but this is the last I will attempt by this author. She can tell a story well enough to keep some interest but her characters are unrealistic even for fiction. Narrator is good.

Well-developed characters and interesting story

There is something undeniably sexy about sincerity and forthrightness when it comes to mutual attraction, and the two principal characters deliver that in spades. The whimsical wager at the beginning of the story is both original and flirty. Add a mysterious past, a dash of villainous intrigue from various antagonists, and excellent narration (Jessica Elisa Boyd does decent accents and good male and female voices), and the result is a very entertaining audio book indeed! I enjoyed the fact that the reference to the wager is carried full circle throughout the story. Well done, Rebecca Connolly! I'm going to check out more of the series.

Great read!

I loved this book! I found it on audioboom and am so glad. I couldn’t put it down (or pause it I guess) I loved everything from the storyline to the narration to the characters. I will definitely go back and purchase the entire series.

Interesting characters

Though the dreary aspect of the storyline dragged on a bit too long, I liked the characters of Gemma and Lucas.

Binge worthy

This is probably one of the best books by this author and in the series. This is the second time I’ve read it and thoroughly enjoyed it. Blackmore is swoon worthy : dark and mysterious and Gemma is a fun character. The characters have depth. One criticism I have about the story is why Blackmore thinks he needs to stay away from his wife in order to protect her. You would think it would be the opposite. Other than that, this story is fabulous. The narration is also excellent.
