Lady Grace Leisterfield is just coming out of mourning for her elder husband. With the Christmas season the house is feeling very empty Grace decides it's time to return to society. Having been warned of the wager between Viscount Eustace & Lord Ormond (by none other than Lady Ormond) helps prepare Grace for her inevitable meetings with the Viscount. Or so she thinks.
Grace learns of a secret that her husband was hiding, one that could damage her stepson's reputation as well as her own, when she is approached by someone attempting to blackmail her. Overhearing the blackmailer threatening Grace, Christopher questions Grace, determined to find out who is blackmailing her & why. Realizing that there is some kind of connection between them despite the wager, Grace confides her husband's secret. Christopher vows to help and protect her & silently questions why the idea of someone hurting Grace and why he's determined to protect her.
When the unexpected happens they flee to a hunting lodge belonging to Lord Ormond until things settle down. Christopher has vowed to Lord & Lady Ormond and Grace that the wager is on hold and he will not attempt to seduce Grace. Grace, having made the decision to sleep with Christopher despite the wager and his vow, she then makes the decision to leave him first; therefore giving Christopher the loss in the wager. Will the wager continue to be between them or will Christopher realize he's losing the one woman he can love and try to win Grace's love?
Regan Walker does an outstanding job of making the reader fell as if they are in the story. She injects humor and, of course, romance without the story feeling forced. She has quickly become one of my favorite authors of historical romance.
for Eustace the race is on. Grace has heard of the wager, and was on her guard. When she is suddenly blackmailed, something that could destroy not only her, but her stepson as well, she is wondering who she can turn to for help. She attends a weeklong party that Eustace also attends and they are drawn to each other. Eustace inadvertently learns of the blackmail and offers to help deal with the man involved. When they arrive, he has been shot dead and they leave to escape speculation and enquiries by the police. They do fall in love, but while they are returning to London, she gets cold feet and fearing she is going to be dumped, she dumps Eustace, thus causing him to lose the bet. He does not want to lose her and does all he can to convince her that bet or no bet, he loves her and wants to marry her. He does and now bets are being set as to when their first child will be born! This book was a fun read and fans of Regan Walker are sure to like this book as well. Readers who like Recency romances and Christmas themed books should give it a,try as well. I like her books very much.

The Twelfth Night is the first book I read by author Regan Walker and I’m very much afraid she now has a new fan. Her characters are well-developed; her descriptions made me feel I was there, with everyone. All in all, I truly enjoyed this book and I can’t wait to read her other books. In fact, I have another one to be started soon – The Red Wolfe’s Prize.
