Book Review of the Twelfh Night Wager by Regan Walker…

Romance author, Regan Walker, has presented us with another historically rich story for our reading pleasure. As always, I found the characters and narrative superbly written.

Here’s the enchanting cover and blurb…


It was a dull day at White’s the day he agreed to the wager: seduce, bed and walk away from the lovely Lady Leisterfield, all by Twelfth Night. But this holiday season, Christopher St. Ives, Viscount Eustace, planned to give himself a gift.

She was too proper by half—or so was the accusation of her friends, which was why her father had found her a husband. But Lord Leisterfield was now gone a year, and Grace was at last shedding the drab colors of mourning. The house felt empty, more so during the coming Christmastide, and so tonight would begin with a scandalous piece of theater. The play would attract rogues, or so promised her friend the dowager countess. Rogues, indeed. The night would preface the greatest danger—and the greatest happiness—that Grace had ever known.

One of my favorite passages…

Perhaps in the past she had been an observer more than an active participant, but he intended to change that. He was certain that in her heart the virtuous widow was a passionate woman…

He intended to restore the youthful passion that she had long buried.


My review…

Five Stars…

In the Twelfth Night Wager (Christmas story), Hugh Redgrave challenges Christopher St. Ives to seduce, then leave the beautiful Lady Grace Leisterfield by the twelfth night. If Christopher fails to meet the terms of the wager, Hugh is the winner. What’s wrong with a harmless bet between gentlemen? Right?

Only Christopher never prepares himself for deep attraction and love… Or blackmail. Grace is the kind of woman who deserves to be happy, and he’s the man willing to care for and protect her.

I so enjoy Ms. Walker’s excellent descriptions of people and places, and her innate ability to include the finest details so I’m always transported back in time.

An excellent read for any time of the year.
