    Buddy read with Lacey Check out her review Lacey and I have been reading a good deal of Romain s books We ve come to love her mature characters, and her unique and relatively drama free stories, and this one certainly didn t disappoint Benedict Frost, a Lieutenant retired from the Navy after he lost his sight, and Charlotte Perry, a former courtesan, meet while on the hunt for stolen coins which promises a substantial reward What I loved most about this book were the main characters neithe Buddy read with Lacey Check out her review Lacey and I have been reading a good deal of Romain s books We ve come to love her mature characters, and her unique and relatively drama free stories, and this one certainly didn t disappoint Benedict Frost, a Lieutenant retired from the Navy after he lost his sight, and Charlotte Perry, a former courtesan, meet while on the hunt for stolen coins which promises a substantial reward What I loved most about this book were the main characters neither clung to the past or spend any time wallowing in self pity Instead they have both decided not to be defined by their past, and I loved that The only thing that bothered me a tiny little bit was the pacing In the beginning, Benedict and Charlotte focus on the treasure hunt, when real life and a whole lot of issues intrude and the search for the gold becomes almost forgotten Then the drama that seemed to threaten to overshadow everything else just gets resolved very maturely which I loved, but it just felt a bit off to me to introduce an Evil villain who slashes faces in anger and stuff only so he can just disappear when he s not convenient any And then Well to me the story seemed to lose focus a bit I didn t enjoy the last few chapters as much as I loved the beginning But still This was awesome I loved the unique storyline, the main characters, and I can t wait to read something else by this awesome author

    I read this for the Love square for Romance Bingo.Benedict Frost currently lives on half pay after being forced out of the Navy due to an illness that caused his blindness With a sister to help support, getting the reward put up by the Royal Mint for a cache of coins stolen would go a long way to solving some of his problems Charlotte Perry has lived the life of a vicar s daughter and a courtesan but has only ever wanted to be free and happy With rumor of the stolen gold coins in her home tow I read this for the Love square for Romance Bingo.Benedict Frost currently lives on half pay after being forced out of the Navy due to an illness that caused his blindness With a sister to help support, getting the reward put up by the Royal Mint for a cache of coins stolen would go a long way to solving some of his problems Charlotte Perry has lived the life of a vicar s daughter and a courtesan but has only ever wanted to be free and happy With rumor of the stolen gold coins in her home town, she sees an opportunity to fund her escape Benedict and Charlotte are both after the coin treasure but they might find a different treasure worththan they could imagine Fortune Favors the Wicked is first in the Royal Rewards Duo but the next in the series, Fortune Favors the Bold, coming out February 28th, looks to be about Benedict s sister and be concurrently happening We get a little look at Georgette and Benedict s friend Hugo and how their adventure starts here I m so looking forward to their story and how Georgette is going to ruffle Hugo s feathers While I thought the search for the gold coins was mostly shoved to the side here and feltlike a colorful reason device to get our couple together, I think the sense of adventure I missed in this one will shine brighter in the nextYou are brave, Miss Perry I am what I have had to be, Mr Frost Her hand turned beneath his, and for a second they were palm against palm As are youWhile I missed some of the adventure I thought would beprevalent in this one, I was blown away with how emotionally engaging Benedict and Charlotte were The quoteThey slipped briskly into an intimacy from which they never recovered F Scott Fitzgeraldfeels completely about this couple The natural way Charlotte and Benedict interacted and came together reminded me greatly of Grace Burrowes couples and the tone felt a lot like Marrying the Captain by Carla Kelly Benedict was a lieutenant in the Navy and Charlotte a courtesan, not typical romance hero and heroine fare I loved how the author had Benedict s blindness a part of him instead of a defining characteristic, it was simply who he was, not something that made him special In a little bit of a different way, the author pulled off Charlotte being a courtesan the same direction, it didn t define her These two were fully fleshed out characters that have me almost talking about them like they were real people and I find myself wanting to type I missed seeingof their backstory lives, but it probably is my selfish need just wantingof them In a room with a man who had ruined her and man who wanted revenge on her, there had also been a man who took her part. Quite frankly, I could sit and listen to this couple read the phone book to each other I savored their sexual teasing, humor, friendship, and love that radiated from their conversations Benedict and Charlotte made this book for me I felt a little bit in the middle the story slowed somewhat and I think that was due to me wantingsearching or adventure in regards to the missing coins, it seemed that storyline was muddled and couldn t find a way to work into the story even when it was supposed to be the catalyst for it I do think if you look at it asof a stepping stone to the next book coming out, you won t look for it the same way I did I also thought the villain of this piece was not needed or needed to beinvolved, the whole thing came off a bit obvious mechanism With such a powerful connection between the leads, the usual romancelandia flare of treasure and villains maybe could have been replaced withof Charlotte s parents relationship issues, which were only able to be hinted at who couldn t help but feel for anxious Mr Perry and lonely Mrs Perry Although, I m sure that kind of category romance would be harder to sell as I myself was drawn in by the lure of treasure This author is someone who only keeps improving for me and if you like Burrowes or Kelly, you ll definitely want to pick this one up I can t wait for the next in the duo to be released

    Love this author s writing, love the hero, love a lot of individual linesbut somehow these promising individual aspects of the book didn t add up to a great overall read for me The story had issues with plot, structure and flow, and I couldn t connect with the heroine as much as I wanted to which, to be fair, is probably my fault I tend not to be a huge fan of current and former courtesans as heroines for whatever weird reason.

    I read the free Chapter 1 excerpt for this novel and knew that I couldn t wait to read this novel I was not disappointed As I have said in previous reviews of Theresa Romain s books, Romain has a unique writing style that she has honed in the course of her Matchmaker series and now perfected here Romain s characters are normal This is not a bad thing in fact, it is the furthest from it I love that her characters are so refreshing, fun, and easy to connect with This talent for creating such I read the free Chapter 1 excerpt for this novel and knew that I couldn t wait to read this novel I was not disappointed As I have said in previous reviews of Theresa Romain s books, Romain has a unique writing style that she has honed in the course of her Matchmaker series and now perfected here Romain s characters are normal This is not a bad thing in fact, it is the furthest from it I love that her characters are so refreshing, fun, and easy to connect with This talent for creating such characters is on full display in Fortune Favors the Wicked.The set up for this novel is a treasure hunt Who doesn t love a good treasure hunt Charlotte has returned home upon fleeing her latest protector, a marquess with an overly possessive, violent streak As you can probably gather from the previous sentence, Charlotte is a courtesan known as Le Perle and has been a rather successful one for the past 10 years Now returned home, she is simply Charlotte Perry, vicar s daughter, and pursuer of the treasure stolen from the Royal mint She is desperate for the reward money in order to start fresh and take care of her family.Benedict Frost is blind However, unlike the stereotype in romance land, he is not beastly rather he is polite, witty, and all around delightful He has some really funny one liners and I adored him He is observant and deliberate in order to navigate life with his disability Like Charlotte, he is also seeking the reward money in order take care of his family.Benedict comes to see the vicar an acquaintance of a mutual friend for a place to stay while he pursues the treasure With both Charlotte and Benedict under the same roof, they slowly grow to know one another Their relationship is a slow burn Benedict is a balm to Charlotte s soul and the guilt she has carried around for 10 years begins to dissolve They were very sweet together.For the first half of the book, the treasure hunt takes a back seat As Charlotte and Benedict team up, the mystery picks up For those who are expecting an exhilarating ride, you won t find it here The mystery wraps up quickly and neatly without a lot of drama The novel is focused instead on the growth of the relationship between Benedict and Charlotte and their discovery of what they truly wanted out of life.This was a comfort read for me It wasn t fast paced, dramatic, or intensely sensual It was adorable, steady, and gently humorous Theresa Romain excels at creating playful stories with a lot of heart She handles life s hardships with grace and understanding, and has you cheering for her characters as though you are their friends This was an excellent, character driven novel I can t wait to read the second book in this duet


  9. Mary - Buried Under Romance Mary - Buried Under Romance says:

    This story is quite interesting both in plot and in characterization both the prior and end occupations There are some complex elements that really make the story alive, instead of resolving things with a neat ribbon that modern historical romance often doesrather, I would say the conflict solutions are very contemporary of our time, and, well, made this reviewer really analyze a book for the first time in a while.Full review to come.
