The Queen of Diamonds never loses …
Felicity Fox is a rarity for a woman living in the early 1800s. Not only does she frequent the ‘gambling hells’ where most ladies would not dare to tread, she can also beat any man at his own game. It’s no wonder she’s gained notoriety as the ‘Queen of Diamonds’.
Edward, Earl of Addington, despises gambling and is not exactly enamoured of Felicity Fox either, especially after she tried to swindle his family. Except now the Earl requires assistance from the Queen of Diamonds – and there’s everything to play for. But with Edward will Felicity find she’s involved in a more dangerous game than she’s ever played before?

Strong characters, not your typical Regency story!
Felicity is a strong and independent character at a time when that was very unusual . No wonder she clashes with the Earl. Can they overcome their past history and backgrounds to find something more than just a partnership?
A compelling read
What a fabulous read. An elegant love triangle set in a time when you did what was expected of you, not what you wanted to do. Edward has class and status, and is betrothed. Felicity is a notorious card player who oozes confidence but hides her upbringing.
What develops is intrigue, compassion, jealousy, and love. There are surprises in store for both Edward and Felicity as the path they take does not run smooth.
