Lord of Chance review Ò 103 Erica Ridley ✓ 3 summary characters Þ eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ Erica Ridley On holiday to seek his fortuneand 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 forev. Three and a half starsCharlotte Devon is the illegitimate daughter of a Scottish Laird and a courtesan She has fled London and her mother to try to find her father She knows little other than his surname and the fact that he gave her mother a ruby necklace and matching earrings In a Scottish Inn she stumbles across a group of gentlemen playing three card BragMr Anthony Fairfax is a gentleman who has supported his family since he was 14 years old by gambling Unfortunately his luck has run dry of late and he has fled north to Scotland to escape his creditors and hopefully recoup some of his losses His luck appears to be on the turn something he attributes to the young woman sitting in the corner watching the gameUnfortunately Lady Luck knows when men are desperate and a series of unfortunate coincidences result in Charlotte and Anthony being married it hinges on an ancient Scottish law which means if you state in front of witnesses that you are married then legally you are married Then Anthony s creditors send the bailiffs after him and there is a very real danger that Charlotte could lose her winnings AND her jewels if Anthony doesn t pay his debts within two weeks The two hatch a plan to annul their marriage whilst still trying to raise 2000 to pay off Anthony s debtsAt first this dragged a little for me It was the age old tale of married by mistake but being fiercely attracted to each other and having to resist although admittedly the reasoning was better thought out than most But then just over halfway the book improved immeasurably Anthony had a come to Jesus moment and realised that relying on gambling to look after his family is a bad ideaOverall this was an interesting story Charlotte s experiences as the daughter of a courtesan were less rosy than other novelists would lead you to believe less satin and uncomfortable bruises Although Anthony s family are spendthrifts they aren t blind to the problems they face and Charlotte realises some hard truths about her mother and fatherAfter a slow start I really enjoyed this the story focused on those struggling to survive on the fringes of society than the ton Looking forward to the next bookI received a free copy of this book from the author via NetGalley in return for an honest review
