As her father's only child, Elsinora must take a husband to help her run the manor of Lyndower. Although capable of managing the place herself, no one trusts a woman to lead.

4 Stars ~ We met Dominic as Thierry's second in The Good Sinner's Naughty Nun. He's scarred both physically and emotionally, and truly believes no good woman would want him because of the disfiguring scar on his face. Using his weighted dice, he wagers a drunken Earl out of his land and all his possessions which includes his daughter. Elsinore is an independent young woman who has rejected the young neighbour's proposal many times and so her father is anxious to find her a husband. When she meet ...more

This was my first time reading any works from Georgia Fox. I have to say I truly enjoyed it! It's fun, exciting and hot. I usually get a bit bored with historical romances, but The Wagered Wench kept my interest the entire time and left me satisfied with its conclusion.

Elsinora is a strong woman the wants nothing more to have respect, independence and a chance to prove herself. She's not going to 'just marry' someone to make others happy or to get the respect she so desires because she is told

I loved this story almost as much as the previous one in this series. The reason I gave it 4 and not 5 stars is because I honestly don't know what the author was thinking with the wedding night scene! I found it more disturbing than anything else!
However, Dominic and Elsinora are both great characters. I loved them both and really felt for them at times with what they had been through and were going through.
I was so happy to read their HEA and also get a glimpse into their future in the last ch
Elsinora is a whiny brat.
11th century England, I believe. Medieval time period, a Norman warrior wins the land and the daughter of a man, in a game of dice.

Dominic struggles to win over Elsinora, daughter of the gambler, and still run the estate.

The story is interesting, the book entertaining overall.

Was this ever HOT HOT HOT! Early in the story Dominic, the scarred hero, "manually" seduces Elsinora in what must be one of the more erotic seduction scenes out there! Be still my heart, I am still panting over that. Ther

I know how Georgia Fox writes her books but to me this story was almost in a way the same as all the others except she gets to chose in the end. But the plot of the story was to shaky since the beginning and did not keep intrigue or interested in it especially how they use the main characters of the book. They were to far apart emotionally or did not show it until the end and then she chose Dom. For me the best parts of the book were the last quarter of it, in a way I did not like this story of ...more

This was my least favorite of the series. It felt too long. I got really tired of the two main characters complaining about each other, but unwilling to talk to each other. The love triangle also felt forced. In the beginning of the book, the heroine describes Stryker as if she can't stand him, but then once he comes back she can't decide between him and Dominic? Really?

This one was my least favorite, Elsinora made me mad! I never liked the whole picking one because that just meant that she couldn't make up her mind. Dominic was "sweet" and she was just like Bertha said "A Harpy" most of the time

She enjoys sun in the mornings, but in the late afternoon it makes her sad. Her favorite kind of holiday is a cabin surrounded by woods on a private tidal cove. In her life she’s done a little bit of everything and som ...more
