Ms. Lemense had an amazing set of characters, and a wonderful storyline – the novel was divided into two parts: the pre-wager and the post-wager.
Annabelle wasn’t your ordinary lady. She grew up in an unconventional home with weird parents, but she loved it. She had always liked Alec, and her older brother’s party might be her chance to show him that she was all grown up.
Alec wasn’t blind to miss it. But he wanted to gain his father’s respect, and to gain it, he must find someone suitable for his future, an according to his father, Annabelle wasn’t. But things changed when the wager happened, and all hell broke loose.
I wonder what was the bet all about. I was definitely curious because of the mystery surrounding it. It must have something to do with the money, but there was MORE to it than just that, or so Ms. Lemense would like us to think…
The Post-wager showed how much of a survivor Annabelle is. She had suffered through a lot, the loss, and the abandonment. She’s really a strong person and I so admire her for it. She tried to hate him at first, there were a lot of encounters between Alec and Annabelle, and despite all this, you can feel their emotions, and the sparks flying whenever they were together in the scene.
There was indeed MORE to what happened that day of the wager, and it is up to you to find out. The deception, the lies and betrayals will astound you, and you will be surprised on who’s to blame. I was so sure it was all that person, and then suddenly, a confession was made that had really broken my heart. They needed to uncover the truth first, because their past is threatening their future.
Regency Romance had always been one of my favorite genres. This is my first book by Julie Lemense, and to say that I was completely enticed by her is an understatement. I love this book, Alec an Annabelle, most especially Sophia who won me over the first time her name came up in the book, even Jane whom I unexpectedly like as well before the novel came to its conclusion. Julie Lemense had managed to make me fall in love in a number of pages. If you love regency romance, and a mystery, you need to read this one!
