Six years pass and Felicity is about to get engaged to her duke, but Max is determined that she will be his. Can he get her to see what he does, that they are destined to be together?
I really enjoyed this story. It is different from Marvelle's other stories. I'd say that it is more "sweet" than is typical of her usually writing but definitely just as good.
The Chrsitmas Wager is part of a new series that Marvelle is starting. Each of the stories will be released around Christmas and continue for the next 10 years. In each of the stories, we will a lot more of the life of the hero/heroine than we would normally read in her other books. We will see the things that make them into the adult they are when they do find their HEA. I'm really looking forward to this series and I know you will too.
