How much would you gamble for love? Rufus Lovell has been thrust unexpectedly into riches, and gained a new set of friends who delight in wagers and bets, with nothing too small or too big to gamble on – even marriage.
So when a tipsy party joke becomes a wager on Rufus’ marriage, he knows he should said no.
But Juliana Honeyfield, the unwitting and unknowing focus of the gamble, is not the simple and malleable young woman that Rufus’ friends take her for.
She demands a lot more from her acquaintances, and the challenge of understanding this intriguing woman and keeping the truth of the wager from her starts to wear thin on Rufus.
Especially when his belief in marriage has already been so greatly rocked, and his family history is sunk in crime, alcoholism, and prison.
Will it be possible for Rufus to charm the winning Juliana?
Does he owe her the truth about his initial interest in her?
And who will eventually win the Michaelmas wager?
A Michaelmas Wager is a charming Regency romance novella about the unlikely consequences of spur of the moment decisions.
