Miss Lucinda Parell needs funds. Immediately. And She has no marriage prospects. But what she has is an unquestioned thirst for wagers. She meets her match in Earl Of Dartford. What starts as a protective gesture, turns into a mutual admiration, respect, understading and attraction. Can a commitphobe tame the man running from his past into accepting her heart?
I think we have established by now that Regency novels are my favorite after a good psychological thriller. When a historical novel has a plot that I can relate to more, I find more reasons to fall in love with it. This happens to be case when it comes to this book; it is a perfect blend of romance, love, chemistry, adventure and drama. The fact that characters are strong help in enhancing it manifold. Simply put, I live the characters and the storyline and the comprehensive narrative style which has been done with the whole victorian period in mind.
The cover image is dramatic and attracts your attention and definitely creates a sense of anticipation regardinng the way this story will pay out.
My opinion: One of those romantic books that I will definitely be recommending.
My rating: 4 out of 5
