Editorial Reviews


"Having read all of Tamera Alexander's books, it came as no surprise that To Wager Her Heart is another masterpiece of storytelling. Tamera's gift for detail made Sylas and Alexandra come alive, and you'll find yourself cheering them on as they pursue their destinies. As an African American, I'm always thrilled to read a novel that includes people of my race - in this case the Fisk University Jubilee Singers. I'd heard some of their story from my former college music professor who was a Fisk Alumnus, but Tamera's inclusion of them in this novel is a blessing and honor. This is a book for everyone, and I highly recommend it!"
~ Veronica Brayboy, Reader from New Jersey
"To Wager Her Heart pulled me into a long-ago time that we must not forget. The characters in this amazing book captured my heart and helped me learn even more about my beloved South. No one writes southern fiction better than Tamera Alexander."
~ Patti Jo Moore, Reader from Georgia
   "For lovers of historical romance, To Wager Her Heart offers the very best of both history and romance. Tamera Alexander's well-told story details the early years of Fisk University as a school for freedmen after the Civil War. I was fascinated from beginning to end. This thoroughly enjoyable novel proves why Tamera Alexander is one of the genre's most beloved authors - and one of my favorites."
~ Lynn Austin, Bestselling author of
Waves of Mercy and Until We Reach Home  "To Wager Her Heart is a wonderful historical romance with sweet and caring characters who are looking for justice and redemption from the past. Real-life people from history are intertwined throughout the novel, enhancing the plot. Alexander has certainly done her research in this lovely Belle Meade Plantation inspirational romance!"~RT Book Reviews, four stars!     "A steadfast heroine, a redemption-seeking hero, and a complex Southern society in post-Civil War America seamlessly combine in Tamera Alexander's To Wager Her Heart. Fans of Alexander's Belle Meade Plantation novels will fall in love with this new installment--but the real stars are the depth of research and the masterful attention to setting the perfect historical scene. Honor. Faith. And love . . . this novel's a journey in them all!"~Kristy Cambron, Bestselling author of The Illusionist's Apprentice   "Tamera Alexander has created a story that blends true historical events with unforgettable characters. Her vivid depiction of the struggles of the newly freed slaves, the expansion of the railway, and the journey of the Jubilee Singers brings post-Civil War Nashville roaring to life. To Wager Her Heart interweaves heroic life challenges with rich spirituality and a sigh-worthy romance. The story and characters will stay with you long after the last page is turned."~Susan Anne Mason, award-winning author of Irish Meadows   "To Wager Her Heart is a poignant glimpse into our country's history and conflict after the Civil War. From the very beginning of this novel, Tamera Alexander invites readers on a remarkable journey, traveling alongside resilient characters determined to do what's right even when family and peers choose prejudice and contempt. Well done, Tamera! This was a journey that I didn't want to end."
~ Melanie Dobson, award-winning author of 
Catching the Wind 

"This is a book for everyone, and I highly recommend it!"

One of today's most popular writers of inspirational historical romance, Tamera Alexander writes novels that USA Today calls "a full on HIT!" (about A Lasting Impression) and Publisher's Weekly describes her writing as "so vivid, one can almost hear the music resonating off of the page" (about A Note Yet Unsung).

Tamera is an author and inspirational speaker whose novels have garnered or been short-listed for numerous awards, including her induction into the Christy Award Hall of Fame for Excellence in Christian Fiction, the RITA Award, the Carol Award, Bookseller’s Best Award, National Reader's Choice Award, Library Journal’s Top Christian Fiction, the Gayle Wilson Award of Excellence, the Golden Quill Award, and the HOLT Medallion, among others.

Her books have been translated into multiple languages including Dutch, German, Polish, Romanian, Slovakian, and Portuguese.

Tamera loves living in Nashville with her husband, not far from the Southern mansions that serve as the backdrop for many of her critically-acclaimed novels.
