The Christmas Wager by Delilah Marvelle

Felicity Annabell Sanders had been raised in the Foundling Hospital since birth as 95428.  At age 16, her uncle discovered clues to her existence and claimed her.  Her uncle, Cederic Barrington, is a wealthy owner of railroads.  Felicitiy's only regret is having to leave her best friend, Marigold.  Marigold is part gypsy and has the gift of seeing the future and has foretold that Felicity will marry a Duke with three lions as his emblem.  At her uncle's house, she meets American millionaire, Maxwell  Redstone.  Maxwell and Felicity meet and almost immediately, sparks fly.

Four years later, the Duke of Ainsley has been courting Felicity and has declared that he will marry by Chrstmas.  Maxwell returns to England after two years in China and still desires Felicity.  Can a rich American win her heart over a Duke?  Throw in a missing key to an attic that can't be found and a ghost that only appears every six years for a wonderful romance.

This wasn't the typical Delilah Marvelle novel.  It was quite a delightful change.  There were plot twists that I didn't see coming.  From when Maxwell and Felicity meet, the banter is non-stop.  There were characters that you loved and one that you loved to hate.  Again, another wonderful cover from Jenn LeBlanc.

I received this ARC from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you.
