Can he trust his instincts, or is she playing him for a fool. . . . .
Driscoll Rose and his two brothers own and run The Rose Room, a well-known and profitable gaming club in London. Unknown to those who visit and spend their money there, the brothers also work for the Crown in positions only known to a mysterious man at the Home Office.
Miss Amelia Pence is on the run from her step-brother who has nefarious plans for her. Late one rainy night she crawls into Driscoll's office window and falls at his feet. Intrigued by the woman, he offers her a job as the only female dealer in the Rose Room.
Much to Driscoll's frustration, Amelia is secretive about who she is, and where she lives since she can trust no one. The growing attraction between them and his desire for her is causing him to dismiss the fact that crowds of gamblers swarm her table each evening, but the profits she turns in are not what they should be.
Can Driscoll convince Amelia to trust him with her secrets or will he discover a deception that contradicts everything he believes about her in his heart? Just when he decides to confront her, she disappears. . .
I enjoyed this book. It’s the second in the series and it just keeps getting better. This book is about trust and how hard it is to trust when you have had your life turned upside down. Amelia is on the run and Driscoll is there to catch her literally and figuratively. Driscoll knows she’s hiding something but also knows he will have to earn her trust to protect her. Unfortunately it may come to late to save her.
I’m looking forward to reading Dante’s book. I can’t wait to see him fall with the way he’s made fun of his brothers.
Trust Is Not Easy.
Amelia is on the run from her step-brother who, instead of giving her the season she was promised, plans to use her to pay off his debt to a rather unsavory character. Nice brother, huh? Driscoll Rose is busy and bored. An assignment for the crown is looking good right now. Then Amelia falls through his window. Life just got less boring. All he needs to do now is find out who this lovely lady is, and what to do with her. He decides to hire her, as a dealer. Amelia, alone and scared, won’t make it easy. She does accept the job offer. Will her brother find her? Will she learn to trust Driscoll to protect her? Driscoll and Amelia’s story is a complex, clever story, and in the middle of all the drama and mystery, they begin to like each other. A lot happens between falling in the window and falling in love. There is a theft at the club, a ball for the members, a kidnapping, and a rescue. Hopefully, all of this will show Amelia that Driscoll Rose is worthy of A Lady’s Trust. Good story. Happy Reading!
I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.
Quiet men can find love too
This is the second in Callie Hutton’s latest series the Rose Room Rogues, which centers around three brothers, their club and the secret work they do for the crown. Our hero is the middle of the brothers, Driscoll the bookkeeper of the club who likes order and calm that is until or heroine, Amelia quite literally falls at his feet. Escaping her brother’s nefarious plan throws her into Driscoll life, upending it at the same time. She has secrets she’s not willing to share, he is drawn to her and wants to help her anyway he can. Dark plots and drama, ensue but ultimately good wins out and secrets are revealed. They find love and the happy ever after both are deserving of. Another great read from Callie, although I received an advance reader copy I would recommend this book to lovers of regency romance. This is a excellent series to introduce you to the genre.
