Product description

Product Description

As the Black Raven, she’s cold, distant and alone…untouched by the gossip and scorn of her aristocratic peers. Until he enters her house — and her life — then suddenly her icy shell is no match for the heat of attraction...

Notorious Widow Lisbeth Carslake, Countess of Blackhurst was acquitted of her husband’s murder, but no one believes in her innocence. Known as the Black Raven, bringer of bad luck and death, she is eviscerated by the gossips and mocked in the clubs.

She’s also the subject of London’s most scandalous wager.

Oliver Whitely, Earl of Bellamy, needs money, but it takes more than a few drinks to take on The Black Raven Wager. He finds himself drunk, at her house, and—more surprisingly—agreeing to a business proposal at the end of a fire poker.

She will let him win the wager, and he will help find her husband’s killer before the killer finds her. But business agreements don’t mean trust, and Lisbeth certainly doesn’t trust Oliver, her body’s reaction to him, or her heart.

Love may be the biggest gamble of their lives, but is it a wager their hearts can afford to lose?

I really enjoyed this book because it had interesting characters. I liked the fact that Lisbeth was strong and Oliver complimented her character.He was very much her hero. I particularly liked that I did not pick who the villain was and I can usually pick them out straight away. I loved the witty dialogue and the fact the plot kept me turning the pagse. I found for me it had just the right amount of sensuality. I'll be watching out for more from this author.

This is a nice light historical romance.

Cassandra Samuels has given the reader some wonderful and delightful characters in her debut novel A Scandalous Wager.

Oliver had me in stitches when he entered the scene at the beginning of the story. I do enjoy a book with humour and the more laugh out loud moments the better - and there were plenty of those. The banter between Lisbeth and Oliver was amusing and the more time they spent together a romance developed between them - it was quite endearing.
All characters were likeable even the grandmother and sister who turned against Lisbeth after she was accused of murdering her husband, eventually they felt ashamed for abandoning her at a time she needed them the most. Kudos to Ms Samuels for having Lisbeth forgive her family - always lovely to read happy words rather than bitter ones.

Well, I have to mention, it had me beat who the killer was. I even made a list of names who I thought it could be, shocked to find I got it wrong. Well done, Cassandra Samuels, for keeping me guessing and madly flipping the pages until the murderer was revealed and at that moment I was able to breathe again and relax into the last bit of the story. Loved the ending, came together quite nicely.

I just loved this book, found it very hard to put down. The characters were well drawn and appealing, the plot was cleverly devised and I was amazed this was this author's first book. It was very true to the Regency period and there was plenty of action to keep one hooked. Ms Samuels writing style is smooth and flowing, and very professional. A simply delightful read - I look forward to her next book.

Wow! What can I say...she had me at 'hello!' I love this author's voice! She writes such great one liners yet the dialogue flows. The storyline keeps you turning the page and the characters...intrigued me and the further I got into the book the more I wanted to 'really' know these people!

I have just finished A Scandalous Wager and you lady are responsible for a couple of very late nights because I couldn't put it down. It is fabulous. It flows wonderfully and the chemistry between Lisbeth and Oliver is amazing. The book is perfect. 5 stars *****
