Publisher's Summary

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.

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.

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.<br/><br/>I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.

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: &quot;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...&quot;
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.

Social misfits

This story was about 2 social misfits for different reasons who get accidently hand fasted in marriage. But it turns out they are just right for each other.
