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…
A very interesting read
This story involves Charlotte and Anthony. They both seem to have insurmountable problems. They both have very little money and Anthony, although charming, has a gambling addiction. Charlotte also has a secret. They inadvertently find themselves married, but can love find a way through all their difficulties? This is a very enjoyable story and I look forward to reading about the other rogues.
Lord of Chance
I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.
When this book started I thought it would be another story of a dissolute lord with a gambling habit.
It is so much more. It is about a man who has only known the highs and lows caused by success or failure at gambling. He comes from a family who don't have any ability to behave responsibly with money.
The story is about how love can actually change people for the better. It is quite different from similar books in the genre but well worth reading. Would recommend it to anyone who likes books that don't follow the norm.
I really enjoyed it.
