Throwback Thursday (104)

In a world where love was always a gamble, they meant to beat the odds

No longer in the first blush of youth and without a marriage portion, Miss Constance Woodley could scarcely imagine why one of the leading lights of London society should take an interest in the likes of her. But under her benefactor’s guiding hand she was transformed into a captivating creature who caught the eye of the handsome, charming and ever-so-slightly notorious Lord Dominic Leighton. And before the shocked eyes of the entire Ton, the “nobody” and the rakish viscount showed that even in the heartless world of the marriage mart, when love was at stake, all bets were off . .

Why The Marriage Wager?

I have such fond memories of this book, and its one of those that I love picking up from my shelf and re reading again. This story made such an impression on me because of the ending. Yep it has a great ending and climax. Like honestly it pushes your emotions and I was practically torn in two emotionally when reading this one. The set up of the story is this basically the setting is a house party. Our hero is poor and needs money for his estates. Our heroine has zero money and is a cousin to one of his guests. Fall in love but its forbidden and then those villains that don’t want them together because of greed, try to trick them from trusting each other and wowzers it gets you in all the feels. Love this book Amen. 🙂
