Description

In the Rogues to Riches historical romance series, Cinderella stories aren't just for princesses...sigh-worthy Regency rogues sweep strong-willed young ladies into whirlwind rags-to-riches romance with rollicking adventure.

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.

A chance

Marian Hussey did a wonderful job narrating this story. The characters were interesting and the tale complex but fun any way. They actually struggled to make things work out and I have a lot of respect for a regency romance without the easy ending....

No real heat and one brief lovemaking scene.

Yes, I'd get it again.

Worth the Chance

Lord of Chance is an enjoyable story. The plot is well written and realistic. The main characters are absolutely loveable. Charlotte and Anthony are a perfect fit. He is cheerful and optimistic and she is ever practical. They will work hard for what they want. In the end, they may be surprised where true luck and fortune can be found.

This is a great beginning to a new series that promises to be every bit as good as Erica’s Dukes of War.

Marian Hussey is an excellent reader. I have listened to and enjoyed several other of her performances. She did a wonderful job with Lord of Chance.

Brilliant start to a new series

This is a wonderful story about two people that met under unusual circumstances and found themselves in an even more unusual relationship.
The story flows off the pages bringing out the courage and mutual respect in both the level headed Charlotte and the rake known as Anthony. This is their love story, and what a story it is!
The following is my favourite quotation from this book: "We may have wed by accident, but our marriage is no mistake. You are the love of my life and I would do it all over again..."
I so thoroughly enjoyed reading and listening to this story that I could hardly wait for the next in this series, Lord of Pleasure. Hope you enjoy it too.
I loved the delightful narration by Marion Hussey in this audiobook version.

Excellent start to a new series!

What did you love best about Lord of Chance?

I have read nearly all of Ms. Ridley's books, and her writing gets better with every series. This book, the first in her Rogues to Riches series, honestly shines. Charlotte and Anthony are two strangers from London who meet by chance one evening in Scotland. Some quick thinking on Anthony's part turns out to be not so well thought out when the pair is accidentally married. I loved the development of their romance as they decide how to deal with their unusual situation and navigate each other's skeletons in the closet, so to speak.

I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Okay story. Great Narration.

So this was an okay story. I liked Charlotte more than I liked Anthony.

Anthony had a serious gambling problem. That was all throughout the entire book. There was a lot of filler nonsense going on through this story that was frustrating. It wasn't a bad story and they characters weren't unlikable, they were just MEH....

I am going to read the next book, it sounds better than this one. I do like Erica Ridley and some of her books are just better than others, so not giving up on this series.

As for the narration, that may be what kept me going. I love Marian Hussey's narrations! She does a great job on the mens voices and everyone gets their own voice. She reads with emotion and has a fantastic reading voice! I can listen to her all day. Top favorite female narrator for sure.

light hearted story

I enjoyed this story,. it was light, funny, cute and romantic. narration was great, I want to say, the reason I selected this book, was the cover. the main character Anthony, reminded me of David Tennant of Dr. Who.

Engaging Regency Romance

I love all three titles in this new series from Erica Ridley. Great period detail, individual lessons learned and delightful romance.

Erica Ridley is a great author

I have enjoyed Erica’s books for a long while. I love her Dukes of War series and some of those characters have come over to her Rogues to Riches series, however, only in bit parts. I think she does a really good job at character development and her story lines are always entertaining. The reader does a great job.
This book is about a man who gambles for his livelihood but has gotten too far into debt to save himself. He meets a wonderful lady at a gaming table in Scotland and tries to protect her reputation by saying they are married. Both parties agree to say they are married but don’t realize that once they say it, in Scotland, they legally are married. What’s more is the gentleman is given two weeks notice to pay or be sent to prison. Together, they will find a way out of this mess, but not before discovering themselves.

The start of a great new series

Where does Lord of Chance rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is only my second audio book and I liked it a lot.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Lord Anthony Fairfax. He is no hero but a man addicted to gambling. I prefer a hero who is flawed.

Which character – as performed by Marian Hussey – was your favorite?

Marian did a great job with Charlotte Devon.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

I loved the banter between H and h.

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next book in the series.
