The Earl and the Spinster: A Regency Romance Novel

Blue Rose Romance
3

Formerly titled Brooke: Wagers Gone Awry (Conundrums of the Misses Culpepper, Book 1)


An angry earl. A desperate spinster. A reckless wager.


For five years, Brooke Culpepper has focused her energy on two things: keeping the struggling dairy farm that's her home operating and preventing her younger sister and cousins from starving. Then one day, a stern-faced stranger arrives at their doorstep and announces he's the dairy's new owner and plans on selling the farm. Though she's outraged, Brooke can't deny the Earl of Ravensdale makes her pulse race in the most disturbing way.


Heath is incensed to discover five women call the land he won at the gaming tables their home. Their guardian made no mention of his beautiful, impoverished wards, nor did he reveal that he forced Brooke to send him the dairy's proceeds or he'd evict them. Heath detests everything about the country and has no desire to own a smelly farm, even if one of the occupants is the most intelligent, entrancing woman he's ever met.


Desperate, pauper poor, and with nowhere to take her family, Brooke rashly proposes a wager. Heath's stakes? The farm. Hers? Her virtue. The land holds no interest for Heath, but he finds Brooke irresistible and ignoring prudence as well as his sense of honor, he just as recklessly accepts her challenge.


In a winner takes all bet, will they both come to regret their impulsiveness, especially when love is at stake?


Buy the first book of The Blue Rose Regency Romances: The Culpepper Misses historical series for a romping, emotional, and romantic adventure you won't want to put down.


Though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone.
