Book 1 of the Wagered Hearts Series by Calista Kyle.
Lily Hayward doesn’t do parties, doesn’t like attention, and she definitely doesn’t date. This unassuming book shop owner would rather spend a night in with a good book rather than hobnob with the rich and famous.
When her best friend Mel begs her to attend a charity gala with her, Lily reluctantly agrees. All she wants is to get through the night without embarrassing herself or snapping someone’s head off. Unfortunately, that doesn’t happen. Lily causes a bit of a stir when she berates another guest for spilling his drink on her.
...and a Billionaire
Roman Conrad is rich, bored and too handsome for his own good. He’s never had a problem attracting women. When he sees Lily at a charity gala, she’s already made a little name for herself as an Ice Princess. Seeing the perfect opportunity to alleviate his boredom and to get one over an acquaintance, he makes a bet that he can make Lily fall in love with him.
What he never expected was that he would be the one in danger of falling in love.
After a painful past, Lily is gun-shy when it come to love and trusting her heart to anyone. She suspects Roman may be too good to be true, but against her better judgment, she can’t help being drawn to him anyway.
She has no idea about the bet and Roman wants to keep it that way, but fate has other plans. After spending his whole life waiting for a woman like Lily will one careless wager ruin everything and tear them apart?

Customer ReviewsSee All
The idea of The Wager is like the movie She's All That but slightly different. The POV change is great so you read as Lily as well as Roman. I think the author could have held off on Lily's past through her friend Mel instead of earlier, for more impact. But liked it thoroughly. Could see myself reading it again in the future along with the sequels
Enjoyed the book
I felt like I could keep reading the book, I was so dissapointed that it was too short. It seemed like a true story novel and you could identify with the characters and the story. I would love to read more books on Roman and Lily.
