Love is the ultimate gamble... Seasoned gambler Philip Drake knows every trick and uses most of them. After years of infamy, he’s ready to accept the mantle of respectability with his earldom— until a devastating racing loss and the threat of debtors’ prison force Philip right back into his gaming ways…

Their new partnership turns into an exhilarating high-stakes game that entangles them in terrifying risk and unimaginable rewards...

Immerse yourself in the risky side of Georgian England with a pair of lovers who aren’t afraid to risk it all on a toss of the dice...

Re: Fortune's Son

A reformed rogue--my favorite kind of story.
(Sue Farrell 11:49am November 18, 2011)

This is early Las Vegas, across the pond, with a couple of daring characters who will keep the story moving, no doubt!! Unfortunately, I have not read the first book, so I have a little catching up to do. Philip Drake sounds like quite the character - one who has met his match. I love the clothing from that time period, and it has been depicted perfectly on the cover of the book. Congratulations!!
Peggy Roberson 11:56am November 18, 2011)

wow this great book and i love historical type and would love to read and blog on it tank you for offering it
Desiree Reilly 12:04pm November 18, 2011)

I am all for reformed rogues... sounds like a great read! Thank you for sharing!
Colleen Conklin 12:06pm November 18, 2011)

Philip sounds like quite a character. Thanks for the interview. I'm looking forward to reading more.
G S Moch 12:06pm November 18, 2011)

I see the name Sukey here and I rarely have seen that used in film or books, I love it! As for reformed...we could all do with some reforming from something or another. Count me in today!
Debra Simning-Chapman 12:54pm November 18, 2011)

Thanks for giving me some insight on Philip. He sounds like he has something to prove or perhaps to set the record straight about his character and that is a great thing.
Na S 1:02pm November 18, 2011)

I love a man who can recognize and reconcile his own faults. I'm already a little in love with this man. And I love that he understood what you meant by the 'Reader's Digest condensed version' - that's a hoot! : )
Amy Valentini 1:22pm November 18, 2011)

Well, that certainly gives me pause about him ... I love bad guys turning into better guys..
Cate Sparks 1:22pm November 18, 2011)

I am loving Philip--a man who is reformed outwardly and is at peace inwardly. My kind of man
Shirley Younger 1:28pm November 18, 2011)

Philip sounds like a lovable rascal.
Anna Speed 1:40pm November 18, 2011)

Hi: I love historical/regency romance type books. I have never read one of your books and I would love to win and read a copy of your book. I would read it and then send you a blog (my review) on the book. Thank You
Joanne Altieri 2:38pm November 18, 2011)

Reformed Rogues or bad-boys are always fun, regardless of the
time frame.
Diane Sallans 2:40pm November 18, 2011)

Rogue or not, he sounds great!
Marjorie Carmony 4:21pm November 18, 2011)

Margay Roberge 5:20pm November 18, 2011)

Philip sounds like a fascinating character.
Maureen Emmons 5:23pm November 18, 2011)

I am married to a gambler. Fortune's Son sound like a book I would really enjoy.
And I love a reformed rogue.
Tammy Yenalavitch 7:16pm November 18, 2011)

I love character interviews! They're usually very humorous-
-which this is--and can be very influential as to whether or
not a reader will like this book--which I do!! Historical
romance is my favorite genre and not only did the interview
convince me to read more but the book cover is also a
definite plus! Thanks for the giveaway!
Laura Henderson 7:44pm November 18, 2011)

A great interview with Philip. Even if he may be, somewhat,
of a reformed rogue.
Cynthia Netherton 8:15pm November 18, 2011)

What a lovely cover. I love her dress. I started out reading
historical romances, looks like I need to revisit.
Julianne Keller 9:19pm November 18, 2011)

FORTUNE'S SON looks wonderful. A fun character interview thank you.
Mary Preston 9:37pm November 18, 2011)

Very interesting,sounds like a fun novel.
Deb Pelletier 9:46pm November 18, 2011)

Thanks for the interview, a shining example, indeed.
Lisa Kendall 10:30pm November 18, 2011)

I love character interviews. Thank you! I love the cover.
Patti Paonessa 11:19pm November 18, 2011)

I love the first sentence, love is a gamble. So true.
Beautiful cover on your book, it would make me pick it up if I walked past it. (and
makes me want to pick it up just seeing it online!)
Lexi Hansen 12:03pm November 19, 2011)

Sounds like a fun book.
Penny Mettert 6:16am November 19, 2011)

One question. Would you let your daughter marry him?
Sandra Spilecki 11:06am November 19, 2011)

This book sounds interesting and fun! LOVE the interview and characters names. I had a friend with that same and a bit unusual first name, Sukey, when I was younger. I love the cover and her breathtaking beautiful dress! Thanks for the giveaway!
Linda Luinstra 4:03pm November 19, 2011)

I love rogues. reformed or otherwise. I love historical romances and loved this interview. Would love to win and read this book, so please choose me for the giveaway.
