The Earl's Winning Wager
Lords for the Sisters of Sussex #2
By Jen Geigle Johnson

This is the second book in the Lords for the Sisters of Sussex and the Duke of Granbury in an underhanded manner, at least in Lord Morley's opinion, hands off his responsibilities of the Standish sisters. Gerald knows his best friend lost them and the estates and holdings on purpose in an attempt to help him find a wife. Miss Standish caught his eye before but not in any meaningful way, now he finds himself charmed by her and her sisters. 

Miss June Standish is determined to see her sisters all married and happy and she finds the attentions of Lord Morley just a bit confusing. One moment he seems to show an interest in her and in the next speaks of helping her and her sisters find suitable gentlemen to whom they might form an attachment. Having never expecting to have her own heart touched June is at a loss as to what to make of this situation. A situation in which she is not fully aware of all the particulars - like that she and her sisters were stakes in a card game. June wants her independence and the chance to decide her own future but as the poor offspring of a once noble house, her choices and options are few.

Can these two find love and happiness together or will the truth of their situations be the very thing that keeps them apart? 

This is a sweet, clean enjoyable read that won't spoil your day or your mood. Not too long it is perfect for a long Saturday afternoon or for a chapter here or there during the week. If you are a fan of gentle reads, clean fiction, and the Regency period you have found the newest book in your summer TBR list.

I was provided a copy of this book with no expectations but my honest opinion. All thoughts expressed are my own.

About the Book:
Lord Morley's life will change forever when he wins a game of cards and a family of sisters to go along with it.

Miss Standish in none too pleased to have become the responsibility of yet another Lord, even if he is full of charm and goodness. Her responsibilities are to her sisters first.

With the repairs on the castle moving forward nicely and concerted efforts in a season in Bath made to find suitors for them all, Miss Standish and Lord Morley must determine where duty stops and matters of the heart take over.

Read this warm tale of family, sisters, loyalty, and love to get a huge dose of the best part of a regency romance fans of Jane Austen or Georgette Heyer would enjoy.

Author Interview:

1) What do you most like about this era?

I love gentlemen. I love ladies who are passionate and work within the constraints society has given. I love pretty dresses.

2) What one author past or present would you like to mentor you?

I’d love to talk to Jane Austen. How did she capture so many in such a way that people are imitating her style for so many years later?

3) What one book would you recommend that everyone read?

Everyone should read …. One book? One single book? Read your scriptures. Read God’s Word. Then, cheat and read another book too, read a book that captures you so completely you feel like you are living in that world, with characters that are as real as your neighbors, more so, and that when you put it down, you are better for having experienced the story.

4) Do you have a favorite author that you would recommend?

I love Heather B. Moore and Rebecca Connolly. I love to read the authors in the Regency House Party Series. They each have their own style and their stories really pull me in. 

5) What one question do you wish you would be asked and how would you answer it?

My main hope when I write stories is that the readers will leave feeling better than they did when they started. My love for the person reading the words is far greater than any story I write. 

About the Author
An award-winning author, including the GOLD in Foreword INDIES Book of the Year Awards, Jen Geigle Johnson discovered her passion for England while kayaking on the Thames near London as a young teenager. 

She once greeted an ancient turtle under the water by grabbing her fin. She knows all about the sound a water-ski makes on glassy water and how to fall down steep moguls with grace. During a study break date in college, she sat on top of a jeep's roll bars up in the mountains and fell in love. 

Now, she loves to share bits of history that might otherwise be forgotten. Whether in Regency England, the French Revolution, or Colonial America, her romance novels are much like life is supposed to be: full of adventure.
