Publisher's Summary

In this Regency favorite from Jane Ashford, a troubled war hero is dealt an unexpected hand....

When Emma Tarrant enters a gambling house to find her brother losing to a gamester, she follows the strange man home and attempts to settle the score. Colin Wareham is intrigued by Emma's offer, and when he wins the first hand, he suggests another game. Should he prevail, Emma would be his prize. But as he's collecting his winnings, Emma's father storms in and demands a marriage. Though forced together, Emma and Colin's passion begins to grow... until a sinister man from Emma's past emerges to raise the stakes.

    Story
    "Blah"

    It's an ok story, the main characters could have been better developed. The fact that they married and then didn't talk to each other about their problems was stupid. I would not recommend to a friend.

    Story
    "Way too repetitive..."
    What disappointed you about The Marriage Wager?

    I hadn't even gotten to the fateful game, but it was repetitive. The heroine could have made at least 5 better choices before she even got there.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    One of the author's favorite writers -- Georgette Heyer. She was the woman who kicked off Jane Austen's legacy in the 20th Century, and is a master at the whole Regency (and Georgian) genre(s).


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    She has a pleasant voice, but should differentiate the sexes a little more clearly. Repartee doesn't work when it's the same intonation.

    "Even on Sale this book is a pass"

    This story was very hard to get into. I found the plot line extended into ridiculousness. The female lead refuses to talk to her husband which leads into bigger issues. Let us not forget Lady Mary. That "chit" needs to be smacked into next year with her whining self! I found the author very lacking in intimate details, not sex, character development. This is a huge pass on me story IMHO.

    "Sweet story -long plot"

    I enjoyed the story although the narration took me a while to get into. If you like historical romances this was fine. If you are looking for a steamy romance novel… This is probably not your best choice.

    Story
    "enjoyable and entertaining"

    It was an entertaining book but Emma became almost annoying in her refusal to talk to Colin about her problem and Lady Mary needed to be smacked. It was fun to listen to once but not a repeat.

    Story
    "I could not stop listening!"

    This book went beyond my expectations! I would read this book again and again. The characters are so stubborn and cause many complications for themselves, especially the main character. The characters definitely proved that love conquers all. This is the first Jane Ashford book I have read, and I can't wait to read more of her books.
