The Bet by Leigh Court - 4/5 tombstones!!!
An innocent bet made by two drunken men turns into the best thing to happen to Damian Hunt. An admitted rake, Damian has had his way with many women, but Claire, the virginal sister of his friend George, proves to be the most wickedly enjoyable seduction of all. His task is to pleasure her with nothing but his words, but he finds that the words between them are far more pleasurable than any touch.
Oh, mama! The journey Damian travels to get Claire to not only speak with him but allow him to speak to her in such a manner was paved with doubts and fears, regret and hope, and even love. His resolve to preserve her innocence even as he takes it is a truly inspired trait to give to a reluctant hero. Period romances normally don’t attract me, but I’d make an exception to glimpse more of what this author has to offer

THE BET--Leigh Court
The Bet by Leigh Court is a cute story about two bored men who make a bet and one, Damien, ends up winning something more valuable than a horse. Claire is the virginal heroine whose fascination with learning about other cultures leads to both her downfall and her delight. This story is sweet in that it follows the adage that sometimes the best things in life are right under your very nose. The use of the Kama Sutra was quite clever and it made me laugh. Not that it’s laugh out loud funny, though there are a few moments where you smile, but Claire’s fascination with it and what it eventually leads to; it’s a wonderful tool for seduction and the author used it well. I liked this story too because of the way their love grew, like a taffy-pull. “Should she? Oh, proper ladies don’t do that sort of thing. But how do they…?” See what I mean? The Bet is a well told tale of seduction and romance.

“The Bet” by Leigh Court
Damian Hunt has bet his friend George Beringer that he can make a woman orgasm using only his words. George agrees to the wager on one condition: he chooses the woman. George chooses his prudish and innocent sister Claire, thinking Damien will have no chance of seducing her. Damien wants to win the wager, but soon, he wants Claire, too. Can he have both?
Because of great writing, “The Bet” feels like a novel instead of a short story. I felt like I got to know Damien and Claire well enough so their fast-paced romance didn’t feel forced. Of course, added length would give more details, but “The Bet” is just fine the way it is. Damien weaves an erotic web around Claire on almost every page that she was inevitably going to fall into. His words are as powerful as his touch. “The Bet” is a wonderfully sensual historical romance with charismatic characters and an angst-filled storyline.
THE BET--Leigh Court
One dreary winter’s night two best friends begin bragging about their sexual prowess when one Damian Hunt, Viscount Atherton, boasts that he can make a woman come by using just his words. Not to miss a prime opportunity for personal gain, George Beringer bets his London townhouse against Damian’s new racehorse knowing there is no way that his prudish, stuck up, moralistic sister will cave to Damian’s wicked charms.
But Claire isn’t all that her brother believes her to be. Underneath her stern prim and proper ways is the restless body of a warm and passionate woman. She fights her own sexuality simply because she doesn’t want to be associated with her scandalous brother. After renewing her acquaintance with Damien in the country, she must not only fight herself, but also his effect on her mind and body.
These three bold characters in THE BET bring some much needed humor to a cold winter’s night. Leigh Court’s comedic look at virtue verses vice will leave readers laughing in their seats and feeling every bit of Claire’s and Damian’s frustrations. Never fear, Court delivers on all accounts and readers will be very satisfied in the end.
