Even though Lord of Chance was a Regency Romance. Erica Ridley tackled a serious issue. That of gambling addiction. Anthony Fairfax, supported his family by his luck at the tables. But it seems his luck has turned when his, supposed to be best friend bought up his debt and now Anthony only was a couple of weeks to come up with two thousand pounds or face going to debtor’s prison. His luck seems to change again when he spotted lady luck across the room. Everything seems to go his way until again that fickle lady had opted to abandon him again. Or did she?
Charlotte Devon had her own problems, the only person she has to rely on is her mother, because of who she was, Charlotte didn’t have any friends growing up. To correct how her life was going, Charlotte is on a mission to find her long-lost father, and hopefully, his name would open doors. But like Anthony, everything wasn’t going her way. She couldn’t locate her father no matter how hard she tried and without even trying to, she gains a husband.
Lord of Chance was a good read from beginning to end. When it came to character development you didn’t have to ask yourself did these characters grow and how? Erica Ridley basically answered all the questions for you, leaving you to enjoy a nice Cinderella story.
