To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone

Wicked Wagers #2

Marcus Danvers, Marquis of Wolverstone is only momentarily stunned when the woman who broke his heart ten years ago appears and asks for help. He would help her; but on his terms. Thoughts of Sabine had haunted him for years and now she would pay - with her body. Countess Orsini would have her revenge against the man who ruined her life and was responsible for her parent's deaths. Even if she has to agree to the outrageous demands from the only man she's ever loved. She only ever wanted to protect Marcus from the past. But secrets never stay buried and her wager the Marquis could open all the old wounds.  

This is the second in the Wicked Wagers series. While the first one was fun and lighthearted, this one is dark and full of danger. Sabine has paid the ultimate price for something that was not her fault. After leaving Marcus for his own good, the only bright spot in her life has been her son. She lost her parents after a truly loathsome man tricked them out of their money. Sabine was going to make him pay but she needed help. I enjoyed the interplay between Marcus and Sabine.  Their attraction is sizzling and the sex scenes are very hot. There are twists and turns as the story races to its conclusion. A lot of emotion and angst in this one. Secondary characters add to the tale and I do hope that we meet Amy again. I can hardly wait for the remaining story in this series.
