When straitlaced earl, Will Sutton, is challenged to turn the obstinate American ward of his friend into a biddable lady suitable for the Marriage Mart, he gladly takes the wager. Then has to decide whether the prize–a prime racing stud horse–is worth changing the impudent beauty’s temperament he’s come to enjoy. Greatly.

One headstrong miss. One stuffy lord. One friendly wager. What could go wrong?

Will Sutton, the Earl of Grandleigh, believes he can save the family’s impoverished estate by investing in a racehorse, but the price is too steep. His brother-in-law offers him a deal: tutor his American ward in proper English customs, so she’ll be marriage material, and Will can have one of his horses. Maybe Miss Georgia Duvall prefers being a jockey, is obstinate and high spirited, but once she’s cleaned up and presentable, he’ll have no trouble finding her a quality suitor. She might even be quite pretty beneath the racetrack dust.

The last thing Georgia Duvall wants is to be married off to an English peer. But she won’t defy her father’s wishes, and sets her cap for the oldest lord she can find—a man who’ll die quickly and leave her alone to manage her inheritance. The Earl of Grandleigh might think he’ll teach her manners and marry her off to someone younger than eighty, but there hasn’t been an obstacle yet Georgia can’t overcome.

Including a stuffy, overbearing English lord.

Just get yourself a copy of this to escape into is my advice! This is a highly entertaining historical romance with great characters, superb scenarios and plenty of humorous moments, too. In this case we have Will Sutton, Earl of Grandleigh being challenged by his brother-in-law to teach Miss Geo... ...more

The Earl's Wager was a light and very charming read. I enjoyed our heroine Georgia a lot-her spunk, her independence, and the merciless way she teased and bantered with Will as he taught her to be a 'proper' lady. Will himself was a very likable hero, very staid and proper and it was wonderful wa... ...more

By CeeMarie July 26, 2016

Now this is how a good, fun, steamy historical romance is supposed to go! It has the often used, but super fun to read plot-stuffy Englishmen tutoring wild American heiress on decorum and how to land a husband, but finds himself falling for her himself. This has obviously been done before, and an... ...more

The Earl's Wager by Rebecca Thomas is a charming Regency Romance. Book 2 of "A Reluctant Bride" series, but can be read as a stand alone.

By Isha July 22, 2016

I know the story by heart. With references to one of my favorite cinema classics, The Earl's Wager by Rebecca Thomas was a clear draw for me. Hints of My Fair Lady permeated off of just about every page but blended with Ms. Thomas' twist of modern meets regency. Georgia was an American tomboy lea... ...more

A lovely read with amazing chemistry between the 2 characters. A quick read that had me engrossed from the 1st page. The 2 characters are very likable. Will starts off as the staid, proper, and to Georgia, extremely stuffy Englishman; “She loved ruffling his impeccably somber feathers”.
Dismayed a... ...more
