"Having read all of Tamera Alexander's books, it came as no surprise that To Wager Her Heart is another masterpiece of storytelling. Tamera's gift for detail made Sylas and Alexandra come alive, and you'll find yourself cheering them on as they pursue their destinies. As an African American, I'm always thrilled to read a novel that includes people of my race - in this case the Fisk University Jubilee Singers. I'd heard some of their story from my former college music professor who was a Fisk Alumnus, but Tamera's inclusion of them in this novel is a blessing and honor. This is a book for everyone, and I highly recommend it!"
