Publisher's Summary

Could you ever love the unrepentant rake who won you in a wager? 
He didn’t gamble on losing his heart when he won her at the gaming tables. 
Pierce, the Earl of Wainthorpe has finally thwarted his worst enemy. Except he can’t revel in his victory after winning his foe’s ward in a winner-takes-all wager. If Pierce refuses to assume Bianca Salisbury’s guardianship, the fiery-haired beauty with a matching temper may very well find herself sold to the highest bidder.  
The shameful secret she guards makes it impossible to love a rogue. 
Desperate to escape her blackguard cousin, Bianca Salisbury ventures to London to find a husband or employment. Instead, she’s bartered to a notorious rakehell. She either risks being compromised and accepts The Earl of Wainthorpe’s protection, or flees him and her guardian. But without money and a place to go, she fears she’ll face the same tragic fate as her mother.  
Caution: This romance features a sexy, irredeemable scoundrel determined to thumb his nose at the haut ton, a saucy country miss unafraid to speak her mind but terrified of even a hint of scandal, a unlikely aristocratic matchmaker, a trio of busybody sisters you’ll adore, and a very pregnant calico that is convinced humans are only around for her convenience.  
For a pause-resisting historical romance novel brimming with Regency England’s rakish dukes and rapscallion lords, buy this passionate adventure sprinkled with suspense and humor. You won’t be able to put it down.

Enjoyable Regency Romance

I really enjoyed this story, and the fact that it was told from the hero's point of view. I loved the two main characters, as they both had tragedy in their past, but were strong and persevering. How horrible as a young woman to be foisted upon an uncaring male relative, and be subject to insult and injury without recourse! I loved the way the Earl proved himself to be a hero, eventually falling for the heroine despite his belief that he wanted to remain unfettered. From the start, he set himself out to be a true guardian, making sure she had a safe place to live, proper clothes, and even a lady's maid...all on his dime. No matter what the reputation he had or encouraged, he was more like a guardian angel.

I enjoyed the narration. It was a nice change from the predominantly female point of view. Mr. Manning's delivery was smooth, natural, and well paced. I would happily listen to other books he narrated.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Enjoyable Sweet Romance

Pierce, the Earl of Wainthorpe, lost a loved one at a young age under violent circumstances, and he's spent years plotting his revenge. At a high stakes card game with the man responsible, the man ups the ante and bets the guardianship of his young cousin, fiery Bianca Salisbury. Knowing that Bianca could be gambled away by the villain the next night, Pierce accepts the stakes. When Bianca finds her fate in the hands of a known rake, she fears her reputation will be ruined.

I really enjoyed this sweet romance! The beginning was suspenseful and the card game had me on pins and needles. The tension between Pierce and Bianca was palpable, without any explicit scenes. There were some funny moments, especially Bianca's sewing skills, and I wish the three sisters had more page time! It's a sweet romance I'd definitely recommend.

The narration was done well, with different voices for each character. He was a pleasure to listen to and pulled me right into the story. I requested a copy of the audiobook, and I'm voluntarily leaving a review.

A fun period romp!

If you're into bodice-ripping tales of rakish aristocrats, rapscallion lords, and fulsome damsels - with a dash of humour - this is the series for you. No need to start from the beginning of the series, you can jump straight in here. The narrator's rich and deep English voice is an extra treat!

Excellent Narration.

This was my first Collette Cameron novel and my first introduction to the Wicked Earl's Club. It works well as a stand alone story.
It is quite a charming read. Pierce is a very endearing character and not wicked at all. I enjoyed the activity surrounding the bet at the beginning of the novel and Bianca's interactions with the earl's sisters. However I would have liked more drama or suspense with Bianca's cousin, Fairfax, to liven up the story after Bianca becomes the earl's ward.

I loved the narration. I thought that the characters were all excellently performed and it was very easy to listen to. I would definitely listen to more books performed by Joff Manning.

This was a lovely Regency romance and I would look forward to reading more by the author although I found it annoying that American words were used instead of English e.g diapers. The inaccuracies annoy me as they have the immediate effect of pulling me out of the story's time and place. The phrase 'didn't have a pence' rather than a 'penny' also stood out.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
