Book Description

To live happily ever after...

Henry St. Giles, the Earl of Cravenswood, longs to find his soul mate. Now that his two best friends, both reformed rakes, are happily married, the need becomes an obsession. When they challenge him to find a wife by the end of the season or marry his neighbor, the innocently alluring Lady Amy Shipton, he can’t believe his luck. He wins, either way. But a darkened garden, a case of mistaken identity, a drunken kiss, and a dropped emerald earring, leads Henry on a Cinderella hunt. He knows the woman he held in his arms could be the one he's searched for all his life. He just has to find her.

Lady Amy Shipton is determined to marry for love instead of sharing her husband like her mother did. So why did she let her handsome neighbor and romantic fantasy, the Sinful Saint as he's called for his bedroom prowess, seduce her in his garden? And what can she do when in the middle of their passionate encounter; he whispers another woman's name. Now Henry is hunting the owner of the earring Amy left behind, and she's determined to retrieve it before her identity is revealed. She's not about to give her father the ammunition he desperately wants to force her down the aisle.

Editor: Megan Records

Book 1 in the Wicked Wagers trilogy, To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield, was a FINALIST in the Kindle Book Review 2012 Indie Romance Book of the Year.

4.0 out of 5 stars Humorous twist to Cinderella story November 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
Hawaiian Proverb: Pili kau, pili ho'oilo.
Together in the dry season, together in the wet season.
Said of loving companionship.

Lady Amy Shipton seeks loving companionship in marriage - a relationship that her parents did not share, but rather the wedded bliss her friends enjoy. Amy secretly harbors a tendre for her neighbor, Henry St. Giles. As the second son, Henry was unsuitable for Amy, a duke's daughter. But his father and older brother pass away, making Henry the the Earl of Cravenswood.

Henry thinks he is heartbroken when his mistress left him for another protector. After a grueling night of social obligation, Henry retreats to his garden, seeking solace with the stars that represent his dead brother. He kisses an intruder, not knowing it is Amy who frequently watches him converse with his brother. Amy breaks their kiss when Henry whispers his mistress' name, leaving behind an unique earring. Henry hunts for "Cinderella", Amy hunts for a husband, and their friends play Cupid in bringing the couple together.

This is the third book in Wicked Wagers series. Although I have not read the previous two books, Evans easily enveloped me into her world with Amy and Henry. I enjoyed how Evans delivered a unique twist to the Cinderella story. I also appreciated that hero and heroine had the same goal - to find a love not easily found in the jaded ton.

TO CHALLENGE THE EARL OF CRAVENSWOOD is an heartfelt read that kept my attention throughout the expected turns and humorous situations. I look forward to reading the first two books in the series as well as future releases from Bronwen Evans! Recommended read for Regency fans who will appreciate the endearing characters.

I received an ARC from the author for this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars I did enjoy this book but.... November 22, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
****Spoilers****

I really wanted to enjoy this book but I just couldn't move past the H's 7 year relationship with his mistress that he was stilling pining for 2 years later (at the time he first kisses the h). The h looks like the mistress too. The H had been lovely in the other books and I was disappointed with his story. Even Sabine (from the other book) said she was happier that her husband had slept around with anyone and everyone and they were nameless and faceless, unlike our H's dedication to his former mistress.

Finally the ending where the h ends up buying the mistress a house and giving her an endowment just really was too much for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars A nice, short read October 24, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is a fast-paced, fairly easy read with sensuous scenes and a ton of passion.
Henry St. Giles, the Earl of Cravenswood, is sad that his longtime mistress and friend, Milicent, is now with a new protector. Henry had thought he loved her, and felt heart broken that she left him. Although he is just as much a rake as his friends the Marquis of Wolverstone (book: To Wager the Marquis of Wolverstone) and the Duke of Dangerfield (book: To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield), it is love that he seeks in his marriage. When upon a moonlit night he laments again on losing Millicent, and drunkenly shares a passionate interlude with a mysterious beauty, he believes himself to have found his soul mate, and sought to find her in all possible haste.
Lady Amy Shipton, the daughter of a duke and Henry's neighbor, has been in love with him for years. She tries very hard to get him to notice her not as a young girl but a woman grown, when one night she stumbles across Henry in his garden and shares a searing kiss with him. Their embrace might have gone farther if she had not hear him murmur the name of another woman, and in her attempt to flee the garden before he became aware of her identity, drops an emerald earring given to her out of gratitude by the Marquis of Wolverstone. Now Henry is set on finding her, and she is thinking of ways to get her earring back before he honorably asks for her hand and traps them both in an unwanted marriage...

Mrs. Evans has again written a well-paced story with two endearing characters who both have their own shadows to conquer. Henry is an honorable and considerate man despite his reputation as a rake, and wants a perfect love that belongs only to him.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Great Romance! October 19, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I really loved this book. It was sweet and sexy with a small side of angst. Henry and Amy make a wonderful match. I also enjoyed seeing the couples from the previous two books again and catching up with what they've been up to.

I wholeheartedly recommend To Challenge the Earl of Cravenswood as well as the earlier two books in the Wicked Wagers trilogy and I look forward to reading more works from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars To Challenge the Earl of Cravenswood January 20, 2014
By AngDia

I really liked Henry's character in the two previous books but since he was so staid I wondered how he would come off in his own book. I was not disappointed. I also liked Amy from the previous book and thought she deserved a HEA. I really loved their interaction. The funniest scene for me was when she was hiding under the bed and he comes in without knowing she is there...read it and you will chuckle. The Wicked Wagers series was fabulous.

More About the Author

Waving from Hawkes Bay, New Zealand.

I'm a USA Today Bestselling author and lover of romance novels. I love reading all genres but in particular historical romance. Here's my bio:

USA Today Bestselling author, Bronwen Evans, grew up loving books. She's always indulged her love for story-telling, and is constantly gobbling up movies, books and theatre. Her head is filled with characters and stories, particularly lovers in angst. Being able to write her characters' stories is never work, it's a dream come true. Is it any wonder she's a proud romance writer.

She writes both historical and contemporary sexy romances for the modern woman who likes intelligent, spirited heroines, and compassionate alpha heroes. Her debut Regency romance, Invitation to Ruin won the RomCon 2012 Readers Crown Best Historical and was an RT Reviewers' Choice Nominee Best First Historical 2011. Her novella, To Dare the Duke of Dangerfield, was a finalist in the Kindle Book Review Indie Romance Book of the Year 2012 and the RomCon Readers Crown 2013.

Her first Entangled Publishing Indulgence release, The Reluctant Wife, WON the RomCon Readers Crown 2013 for Best Category/Series.

When not ensconced in her study writing her characters' thrilling journeys to their happy ever after, Bron can be found on the golf course.
