"The Wager" is an interesting mix of sexual innuendo and smart dialogue. The story is short and doesn't allow for much background info or strong character development, however, it is still an enjoyable read with a sizzling chemistry between Catherine and Brook.
Catherine's brother wagered her in game and lost. Now her fate rests with the man she once rejected. When Brook offers another wager, Catherine isn't sure whether it would be better to win or lose.
Catherine is in despair. Her brother has lost a wager and the prize is her. The winner is the one person she dare not be in thrall to. How will she cope?
Brook suggests they wager on the outcome of the previous bet, but he intends to win.
What happens is more than either of them anticipates.
