About the Book

A Wager She Can’t Afford to Lose
When her brother falls into the clutches of gamester Gavin Hunt, feisty heiress Persephone Fines will do whatever it takes to save him. Hunt offers her an outrageous proposition: he will release her brother … if she can resist six nights of seduction. Can she withstand the scoundrel’s wicked charm—and the shocking desire he rouses with each touch?

A Bet He’s Determined to Win
A product of London’s violent stews, Gavin Hunt has clawed his way to success and power. Now he will stop at nothing to achieve his life-long goal: revenge upon the man who betrayed him. He plans to seduce his enemy’s sister … but doesn’t count on losing his heart. Will he give up his need for vengeance—or risk forsaking the only woman he’s ever loved?

From Six Nights … to Forever
As the battle of the sexes rages on and seduction flares into uncontrollable passion, Gavin and Percy must also fight a hidden enemy. Only by trusting one another can they defeat the threats of past and present. In this high-stakes game of love versus sin, what will be the outcome of … Her Wanton Wager?

“Her Wanton Wager is a great read that is sexy, fun, and very enjoyable!”

Five star review from LoveRomancePassion

“I loved the Greek mythology overtones to this story, the heated seductions, the night in the Vauxhall Gardens ….I especially loved that while revenge was Gavin’s original goal, he became so smitten with Percy that he wanted to win the wager to have her not destroy her….Her Wanton Wager is a great read that is fun, sexy and very enjoyable!”

– Love Romance Passion

“You know when you pick up a book with zero expectations and get blown away when you read it? This is one of those books for me. I had not read anything from this author and knew nothing of the series and now the series and the author is on my “favorite” list….This book has all the components I enjoy in a romance novel: well developed characters, witty banter, smoking hot love scenes, and a tight over-arching plot to move the story along.”

– Lori, Goodreads

“A page turner! Well written and captivating, you can’t wait to see what will happen next. Naughty and romantic, this is not your cookie cutter romance.”

– Kathy, Goodreads

“I LOVED this book! It was a little of everything and a whole lotta hot and steamy love scenes (I am still fanning myself!). There is a mystery, forbidden love, a tortured hero, a truly refreshing heroine…”

– Tracy, Goodreads

“I RIPPED through this book, friends, and enjoyed every minute of it. Percy is a character after my own heart – a writer who wants to be free from the expectations of the Ton and escape the pressures of her own middling status and legacy. And Gavin? Let’s just say that if you have a thing for regency bad boys, he will definitely satisfy. I really loved how Callaway handles their relationship. Percy realizes early on that Gavin is a tortured individual but instead of saying “Psh, I can *fix* him,” she says, “Ugh, that man needs me to *love* him.” In fact, that notion is a huge theme in this book – nobody is broken so nobody needs to be “fixed” but EVERYONE needs to be loved.”

“Wow – Just wow – one of the best books I have read this year! Actually I would say the best! Couldn’t put it down. Was mad when I had too. Can’t wait to start the 3rd in the series.”

– Jen, Goodreads

“What a great story. Loved the plot, the H&H, the hot and steamy sex….I totally loved Percy she was funny, strong, witty and had spunk for days. Gavin was just awesome, loved his back story…”

– Tracy, Goodreads

“stayed up all night to finish this. loved it so much! loved the heroine! she was so spirited and fresh! she fought for their love. the thing that sealed it was when she found some other chick pushing up on her man! she didn’t run away and jump to crazy conclusions. she charges in and tells the chick to get her hands off the man. go girl! loved the hero, hard but tender, as he discovered his love for the girl. utterly enthralling and funny! all time fave!”

– Daneesha, Goodreads

“I loved Percy and Gavin and love this book.”

– Sheila, Goodreads

“Percy is the heroine I have been waiting for! There were no “miscommunications” no “misunderstandings” and no yelling “would you just talk to each other for goodness sakes!”. If Percy wants to know the truth, she asks. If she is thinking something, she says it. Not only can she communicate she can also listen…Basically, Percy is as close to a real person as I have ever come across in a novel and it was so refreshing! I also loved Gavin. He makes no apologies for who he is and does not try to be something he isn’t for Percy. He wants her to see the real him and he wants the same from her. I loved this couple.”

– Courtney, Goodreads

“This was another excellent book by Ms Callaway. I really enjoy her style of writing…historical with heat. This series is very good and I am hoping she will be writing more about the wonderful characters she has introduced us to.”

– Stacey, Goodreads

“Callaway also does a great job of setting up what would be a reason for conflict between the two main characters in a normal romance novel, but the characters behave like reasonable adults and therefore it is not a point of conflict. I like that! Loved the feisty Percy and the rough Gavin, loved how they balanced each other and how he doesn’t always have to be the alpha…As long as she keeps writing them, I’ll keep reading them!”

– Nicole, Goodreads

“A wonderful book. I read it twice because I didn’t want it to end. Great sex scenes, interesting characters, and great romantic stories from Grace Callaway. Her books are burning up my kindle, as I have read eight works from two of her series, Mayfair and Enquiry, in the past two weeks. Wanton Wager is my favorite book so far, but all of them are well worth it.”

– Peabeas, Goodreads

“Once again Grace Callaway has hit it out of the park. This book was amazing with the description of 19th century London so vividly painted that I imagined it all in my mind. The protagonists generated so much heat that my fingers were scorched turning the pages.”

– Tamalama, Goodreads

“This was an absolutely wonderful romance. It had everything that makes for a good read. There was plenty of passion, a feisty heroine, a damaged hero in need of redemption and a story that captured my attention throughout. Gavin and Percy were wonderful together…Highly recommend this book.”

– Joan, Goodreads
