‘ Lord of Chance by Erica Ridley is book One in the “Rogues to Riches” series. This is the story of Charlotte Devon and Anthony Fairfax.
Anthony is the brother to Sarah Fairfax who was the main female character in “The Brigadier’s Runaway Bride” which was book Five “The Dukes of War” series. But you don’t have to have read that book to enjoy this one. I just wanted to point the connection out in case you have read that one and would like to read Anthony’s story.
