Publisher's Summary

London, 1821

Lord Robert Dennington, the Marquess of Westfield, has long reveled in the freedom afforded him as the ducal heir. He knows he must someday do right by the Somerset line, but he's in no hurry to give up his carefree existence.

Helena Banbury is a bookkeeper in a gentleman's gambling club, adept at analyzing numbers and accounts but helpless for lack of influence. She's never belonged among the nobility on the gaming hell floors, but neither does she feel completely herself among the men who run the Hell and Sin Club, despite the fact that they are family. The once-illiterate girl from the streets wants more than the gilded walls her protective cage can offer.

When Robert mistakenly enters her chambers one night, Helena is forced out of her predictable life and thrust into the glittering world of Society. Will the charms of the marquess prove more perilous than any danger she ever knew on the streets?

    "Good Story and Narration"

    This was a good story. I always like a story where there is a gaming hell. I do wish there was more of the gaming establishment in the story. It would have add a little more intrigue to the story. It's okay the story was still good and entertaining.

    I liked Helena a lot. Love a mathematician heroine. And the soon to be Duke, Marquess of Dennington was great, loved him. These two had some good chemistry together and nicely written sex scene too.

    The story line and plot was good. A little mystery and a villain or two is always good. There was lots of dialogue throughout the entire book.

    As for the narration it was good. I do like Tim Campbell almost always. He does a good job on the female voices and gives everyone their own distinct voice. He has a nice reading voice.

    "Good Book, Fantastic Narrator"

    Tim Campbell swept me along and kept me mesmerized by the words and story of The Rogue's Wager. His reading voice was perfect. Two people with very good reasons to not trust. Obstacles. Loving fathers. A wicked duchess. Home found.

    "Great story"

    This story is so compellingly beautiful that I have listened all day. Tim Campbell does a wonderful job of making us feel the emotional content to the point of occasionally crying or laughing throughout Christi Caldwell's absolutely addictive story.

    "ENJOYABLE HR!!"
    Where does The Rogue's Wager rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I DON'T KNOW I HAVE LISTEN TO SO MANY OVER MANY YEARS!!


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    IT WAS OKAY


    What about Tim Campbell’s performance did you like?

    TIM CAMPBELL IS AN EXCELLANT NARRATOR!!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    The Rogue's Wager is a fast paced story. Not to much realism but I did like both H/H Helena Bansbury the illegitimate daughter of the Duke of Wilkinson and Robert Dennington the Marquess of Westfield heir to his father the Duke Somerset. Both the H/H have had traumatic events take place in there lives especially Helena, she has scars on her face and hands to prove the physical abuse she suffer as a child. Roberts pain came at the hands of his grandfather who has sex with the women he was going to elope with. He was young and naĂŻve. This two meet in a gaming Hell owed by Helen's brothers. I liked most aspects of the story. It just took way to long for this couple to really come together and to overcome there personal misconceptions of people. I also, got tired of hearing how scared Helena was. I almost felt at times that Robert was falling in love with a tall, unattractive, scared Helena because she was safe and not the usual beautiful petite young women of the Ton. I am not quite sure I like this perspective. However, The Rogue's Wager is an excellent additions to the Sinful Bride series!! I do Recommend reading it if you like HR.ARC Provided by NetGalley for a Honest Review read 9/16/2016

    "Wow!! Just Wow!!!"

    This book starts off with a bang. I love Christ Caldwell's writing style. This book shows her venturing from Mayfair to the Dials. Helena is amazing & strong but still appropriate for the time period. I love the Hero as well Robert is all you want in a hero. I enjoy as always that the characters are human not perfect cut outs ideals. There is depth to each character. The best part is there are small details that hint to topics in future books. This book is great as a stand alone & even better if you read Christi's back list of books.
    For Audio Tim Campbell is amazing. His voice is one of the greats. I always enjoy books he narrates.
