To convince his trustees he is responsible enough to manage his estates, rakish Julian Ardleigh, Viscount Debenham, plans to marry his childhood friend, Harriet. Since her one disastrous London Season, she has lived quietly in the country breeding horses and has no wish to marry. When Julian persists, she challenges him to prove he can be faithful, but neither gambles on losing their hearts!
THE WEDDING WAGER was originally published in the Zebra Regency anthology HIS BLUSHING BRIDE, a Romantic Times Top Pick. A sweet traditional Regency novella, it won the National Readers’ Choice Award for Best Novella in 2001. Sensuality: sweet (kisses).
