But when his best-laid plans go awry, Jasper devises a wager of his own.
For Katherine, already wildly attracted to him, Jasper's offer is irresistible: to make London's most dangerous rake fall in love with her.

Review by wyvernfriend
One night, Jasper Finley, Baron Montfort makes a wager. Within two weeks he will seduce Katherine Huxtable. He ends up losing the bet, but barely. The two of them are attracted.Two years later, the story of the attempted seduction comes up again as the two of them are drawn together and Katherine's reputation is destroyed. Marrying is the only way but Montford is deeply suspicious of marriages and relationships and he will have to learn how to trust her.It's entertaining. Having to learn to love post-marriage is one of the romance tropes and it's well done here. Entertaining but nothing too deep.
