Lord of Chance
A Regency Romance
An emotional, marriage-of-inconvenience, rags to riches romp from a New York Times bestselling author:
Disguised as a country miss, Charlotte Devon flees London, desperate to leave her tattered reputation behind. In Scotland, her estranged father’s noble blood will finally make her a respectable debutante. Except she finds herself accidentally wed to a devil-may-care rogue with a sinful smile. He’s the last thing she needs…and everything her traitorous heart desires.
Charming rake Anthony Fairfax is on holiday to seek his fortune…and escape his creditors. When an irresistible Lady Luck wins him in a game of chance—and a slight mishap has them leg-shackled by dawn—the tables have finally turned in his favor. But when past demons catch up to them, holding on to new love will mean destroying their dreams forever.
In the Rogues to Riches historical romance series, Cinderella stories aren’t just for princesses…
Lord of chance
Could not put it down.
Taking a chance with the Lord of Chance!!!
An enjoyable story, the reader feels the connection between Charlotte and Anthony even though she wants to find her elusive father she can't help but fall for the charming Anthony- he's running from creditors and chasing Lady Luck and she's running from a reputation not of her making, all she wants is to belong and to be viewed as someone of worth.
What they got in return was not in the cards for either of them.
Received an ARC from the author for my honest opinion
Once I started reading, I wasn't able to put it down
Once I started reading, I wasn't able to put it down. Charlotte and Anthony are completely charming together. The sweet flirtation and witty banter they exchange is delightful and kept me laughing from their very first encounter. I'm finding it difficult to put into words my thoughts about this book. There's a lot of story here, but because of the sweetness and laughter it all felt very light. It touches on some big, heavy topics like addiction and acceptance but it stays away from the dark places it could have gone with those. I love that we get the opportunity to revisit some of our favorite characters from the Dukes of War series, to see what's happened since we left them. I'm also trying very hard to be patient while waiting for our next Rogue.
I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
