The Scot’s Wager by Hannah Morse

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Cecil works as a bouncer for the Perdition Club, a gambling club/man cave in Regency London. One of the patrons of the club is a young Scottish noble named Danny, who at first sight appears to be just another rake, as drunk, rowdy and inconsiderate as the rest of them. But Danny is there to take revenge and his wanton behavior is just a facade. Cecil soon learns that he and Danny share an enemy. And soon they share much more than that.

Well, that was a fun read. I loved every second of this. The chemistry between Cecil and Danny, the two main characters, was delightful. Pacing, plot, side characters, the villain, locations … everything just worked together perfectly. It gave enough detail to make the time period come alive, but didn’t go overboard on descriptions or explanations. And it has a genderfluid character in it. Yay for genderfluid characters. We need more of those!

Now, I did read a pre-release copy, and it had some blatant typos and other issues that I hope final editing caught, so I am not subtracting any stars for that (I would if those errors remain in the final version, though, because they were quite jarring in places).

It definitely makes me curious about the other books from the Perdition Club series.

I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
