I absolutely loved this novel. The characters were well written and the plot was different than the usual historical romance. At 233 pages, the length was perfect. It had the beginning, middle, sexy times and plot resolution without the book feeling like it was droning on and I wanted to skip to the end.
I loved Andrew as the tortured hero. He was so daring and wanted to protect Lucy, yet struggled to protect his heart due to losing his family at a young age. Lucy was a strong heroine that deserved her HEA. Her father had gambled away the family fortune and taught Lucy to gamble. She used her skill to get the money she needed to be able to join her grandmother in a little cottage in Bath. I also liked the secondary characters of Ivy and Aquilla. They need their own books!
I received this ARC from NetGalley and the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!
