    Well written nd entertaining I thoroughly enjoyed this book I was a tad sceptical at first as this is somewhat outside my normal genre preferances I really enjoyed it I was so pleased the heroine is strong and no simpering ninny The historical context is well written and adds flavour and structure without being obtrusive I enjoyed the characters they where rounded each with flaws and graces not reliant on steriotype There where times this book made me blush and I thoroughly enjoyed it

    I'd enjoyed Hobbes' first novel very much; this is even better I think The fact that the heroine is a young widow allows her freedom and the blossoming relationship with her Father's Steward is gripping capturing the tensions and exhilarations of a love affair Once again Hobbes' charcaters are brilliantly realised and the period has obviously been well researched I'm now impatient to read her Third novel Highly recommended

    This is another delightfully fun high octane and emotionally deep book from Elisabeth Hobbes and one that I hugely enjoyedI did really enjoy the story itself I know that Hobbes says this is of a Christmas book and I can really see that it isn’t as dark or heavy as the other books I have read from her – which is what I have come to expect from medieval romance and it’s a pleasant change It’s different but in an entirely good way It’s a great read and as we’ve to come to expect from Hobbes she sprinkles her uniue charm across it and she has created an alluring and thoughtful storyThe Wager for the Widow is perfect for those starting out in medieval romance and those who have just come across Elisabeth Hobbes it’s a fresh and classy romance with that medieval edgy ness that I love about this era as always with this author highly recommended

    I enjoyed this book From the very first page it had me hooked The hero's entrance is incredibly memorable as is he I also enjoyed the fact that the tables are turned in this novel The heroine is high born while the hero is a bit of a commoner They both have incredible flaws that make them relatable to the reader even if they are from another time The dialogue is snappy the romance and sexual tension is tangible and the plot just seems to flow from scene to scene carrying the reader along eagerly You definitely want to know if the hero and heroine will conuer their doubts and fears and will end up togetherAnother great performance by Elisabeth Hobbes
