Inhaltsangabe zu „The Rogue's Wager (Sinful Brides Book 1)“ von Christi Caldwell

London, 1821 Lord Robert Dennington, the Marquess of Westfield, has long reveled in the freedom afforded him as the ducal heir. He knows he must someday do right by the Somerset line, but he’s in no hurry to give up his carefree existence. Helena Banbury is a bookkeeper in a gentleman’s gambling club, adept at analyzing numbers and accounts but helpless for lack of influence. She’s never belonged among the nobility on the gaming hell floors, but neither does she feel completely herself among the men who run the Hell and Sin Club, despite the fact that they are family. The once-illiterate girl from the streets wants more than the gilded walls her protective cage can offer. When Robert mistakenly enters her chambers one night, Helena is forced out of her predictable life and thrust into the glittering world of Society. Will the charms of the marquess prove more perilous than any danger she ever knew on the streets?

    After having read many books by Christi Caldwell I stopped reading them for a while because I felt that I knew it all. The same structure, the...well, not exactly the same people, but you get the meaning, right? Everything was wholly predictable but when I read the blurb of "The Rogue's Wager", I was intrigued and decided to try my luck. Well, I enjoyed every single page of it. I read it straight from the first to the last page and loved it. Of course, the story being a romance, many things are still predictable - just as I like it. But the hero and the heroine are distinct and also unusual enough that I loved them and wanted to know what happened to them. I loved to see Helena fight for her freedom, a cage is a cage no matter how well-meant everything is. Her brothers mean well, they just don't know how to deal with things differently and Robert, well, he has a bit to learn as well but he might just get there and find something (or someone) very precious ... The story itself was well plotted and different enough to make it an interesting read. I already knew that Christi Caldwell writes really well and this book was no exception -  well written, great story and wonderful characters make "The Rogue's Wager" a story that I really enjoyed and that I can whole-heartedly recommend.
