Lady Amelia Caversham is determined to marry a duke. But catching the eye of a duke has not been easy, so Amelia enlists the aid of Lady Sophia Dalby, rumored to have once been a courtesan.

As Lady Dalby and Amelia start conducting interviews of those men who have made Amelia's list, the Earl of Cranleigh is determined that Amelia not marry his brother, who is on that list.

Sparks fly between Cranleigh and Amelia as the dukes eagerly line up to be interviewed, and the wagers around town escalate as to whom will eventually marry the lovely Amelia. But will Amelia be able to make the right choice in the end?

THE COURTESAN'S WAGER, the third book in the Courtesan's Chronicles series, is a clever story and highly entertaining. Claudia Dain

Learn more about The Courtesan's Wager


Award-winning author Claudia Dain brings back her deliciously improper ex-courtesan for another delightful matchmaking scheme.

If Lady Amelia is to marry before another Season passes, she’ll need help from infamous courtesan-turned- matchmaker Sophia Dalby. But Amelia is shocked when Lady Dalby informs her that they’ll hold interviews for the post of husband—and only dukes need apply.

The plan may ruffle some feathers, but that doesn’t keep the men from lining up, especially once the hopeful bride-to-be rejects one eligible duke after another. Only Lord Cranleigh shuns the proceedings, setting his own course of action. But convincing the lady to pursue different interests leads to even more outrageous behavior. Lady Dalby is delighted—and the ton is abuzz: Will Amelia become a duchess, or will other desires consume her?
