Product Description

**Enjoy the latest romantic comedy by New York Times & USA Today Bestselling Author Marilyn Brant!** (Note: This book is part of the "Perfect" series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone novel.)

The course of true love doesn't always run smooth -- not even for millionaire bachelors...

Everyone thought Beth Ann Bennet and Dr. Will Darcy had an unexpected romance in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match (Perfect #1). Now, Beth's best friend, Jane Henderson, and Will's first cousin, Bingley McNamara, begin their own unlikely love story in Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet (Perfect #2), which starts at the Darcy/Bennet wedding when they find themselves in the roles of maid of honor and best man for the newlyweds.

Jane is an interning school psychologist and a woman who wears an angelic mask in public, but she's not as sweet tempered as she'd like everyone to believe. Turns out, she may have just crossed paths with the one person who'll unnerve her enough to get her to reveal her true self.

As for Bingley, he's a wealthy, flirtatious and compulsively social guru of finance, who likes to wager on stocks and, let's face it, on just about anything that strikes his fancy. But this dedicated ladies' man may have finally met the woman who'll challenge his bachelor ways!

Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet...where life's biggest gamble is the game of love.

STORY EXCERPT:

Finally, the procession out of the church began, and Jane, as maid of honor, had to walk back down the aisle with Bingley. Oh, joy.

"Delightful ceremony," he pronounced loudly, insuring that everyone nearby would hear, as he formally offered her his arm. But he looked at her as if he'd much rather promenade with a python.

"I agree," she said, smiling tightly and playing the part.

He cast an absolutely ecstatic grin at the friends and family in attendance as the two of them took their first steps toward the church's vestibule. "Only the receiving line and the final pictures," he hissed, his lips near her ear as if sharing a secret. "And then I can start getting drunk. I plan to be pretty damn buzzed before our special dance."

She leaned closer to him and hissed right back, "So funny! I was thinking exactly the same thing."

"Yeah? I remember the last time you got your hands on some champagne, Jane. Who are you gonna be making out with tonight?"

She gripped his arm perhaps a little more forcefully than necessary. "Not you."

He winced but didn't stop walking or faux grinning at the congregation. "Oh, I wasn't offering, sweetheart. I've already been burned once. I don't do second chances."

She gulped. To her ear, he sounded hurt, which both surprised her and pissed her off. He was acting like some innocent in the whole thing. Like he hadn't been trying to take advantage of her--one way or another. That he hadn't made a bet that involved her. Ha. She'd tear him apart limb by limb, this very second, in fact, if it wouldn't ruin her dress before the reception.

Beth and Will had stopped just up ahead of them and were getting ready to greet their guests in the receiving line. Before Jane pulled away from Bingley to dutifully take her place next to the bride, she gave the quote-unquote "best man" her parting shot. "I don't do second chances either," she informed him. "And, for the record, you might as well pay up Dustin and buy your own beer because there's no way you'll win your gamble with him. At least not with my help."

Jane had the satisfaction of seeing him freeze in his spot, a look of shock and confusion on his handsome face, as she turned her back to him.

Now that she'd told him off at last, he'd have to stay away from her, except when their attendant duties made interaction absolutely necessary. Seriously, how much more trouble could the guy cause in less than twenty-four hours, right?

Right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended! 14 July 2014
By Vee - Published on Amazon.com

I thoroughly enjoyed 'Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Bet' Marilyn has given us another winner!
The pace is lively and fun right from the get go! Wow this Bingley is like nothing I've ever read before! He exudes power, money, charisma, and he is very sexy. I love the spunk shown by Jane, she is definitely no shrinking wallflower. The characters worked brilliantly, they dealt with so many different emotions, which kept me riveted. I loved the humour which was seamlessly woven throughout, and I found myself laughing and smiling many times. I enjoyed the beautifully written romantic storyline also, there were lots of twists and turns, that kept me guessing and hooked until the very end. I love the music references and the 'pinched cheek' which I do to my relos all the time. Angie is a real card and Charlie is an Angel, great additions to the cast! Jane's ex is slap-worthy and 'creepy' to use Bingley's words. I was totally invested in Jane and Bingley's love story all the way through.
A wonderful stand alone novel, but also a fabulous sequel to the equally brilliant 'Pride, Prejudice and the Perfect Match'.
Looking forward to the next, Vee x
5.0 out of 5 stars Is She worth the gamble and the effort? 25 July 2014
By S. L. Majczan - Published on Amazon.com

I was waiting for this book to come out as I so enjoyed The Perfect Match.

This couple, Jane Henderson and Bingley McNamara, meets because their best friends, Beth Bennet and Will Darcy, are getting married and sparks immediately fly. A make-out session in a closet leave them only wanting more and he can’t forget the sexy lingerie at which he only got a brief peek. What is she wearing he wonders every time he sees her.

However, in over hearing her brother making a bet with Bingley as to who will "score" first, Jane turns a frigid shoulder to further overtures by Bingley. Bingley debates with himself as to whether Jane is worth the effort of further pursuit. After all, it is not as if he doesn't have everything going for him to catch any woman he wants: good looks, charm and money...plus there is that hot car. But he can’t get her out of his mind. Finally, he decides to consult with his best friend, Will, even though Will and Beth are on their honeymoon.

BUT, what if: Jane’s first love, the man who broke her heart while in college, Trey Willoughby, shows up quoting poetry - using her as his muse, sending huge bouquets of flowers and explaining that he only cheated because the depth of his love for her scared him, deeply frightened him and he needed time away to realize just what all that, just what she, meant to him.

Beth’s son, Charlie, plays a big part in making sure the couple cannot ignore each other. But then Bingley’s cousin, Caro, in counterpart acts the brat and diverts attention away from this couple’s time together.

This was so much fun to read. Jane’s job, Bingley’s cooking talents and knowledge about food, the interest both took in a young boy and their extended family’s part all added to the flavor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Homerun #2 for Ms. Brant Today 15 July 2014

Bought both this book and it's prequel on Amazon today, and stayed up until 3:30am to finish them both. Good tension/friction between the main characters. Good romance without the major smut which sometimes sneaks into books. Loved the story line. Great job!!!!

Relatively quick read. Held my attention throughout, sexy and sweet! Fun yarn using some loosely Austenesque characters. I read a lot of romance and am glad to have scored on this one; I recommend it! Bingley has never been so sexy;)

3.0 out of 5 stars Fluffy sequel 13 November 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Whilst this made me laugh a couple of times, it is essentially a sort, fluffy sequel to the author's P&P & the Perfect Match. This time about Jane and Bingley rather than Darcy and Elizabeth. It was nice to see Jane and Bingley have more substance than just being amiable as in the original and most fan fiction, it was not enough especially from an author of this caliber.

And the food gimmick is growing a little stale. I would not read again and not sure if I would recommend either.
