Add to Wish List
As a lieutenant in the Royal Navy, Benedict Frost had the
respect of every man on board--and the adoration of the
women in every port. When injury ends his naval career, the
silver-tongued libertine can hardly stomach the boredom. Not
after everything--and everyone--he's experienced. Good thing
a new adventure has just fallen into his lapâ€¦
When courtesan Charlotte Perry learns the Royal Mint is
offering a reward for finding a cache of stolen gold coins,
she seizes the chance to build a new life for herself. As
the treasure hunt begins, she realizes her tenacity is
matched only by Benedict's--and that sometimes adversaries
can make the best allies. But when the search for treasure
becomes a discovery of pleasure, they'll be forced to decide
if they can sacrifice the lives they've always dreamed of
for a love they've never knownâ€¦

Re: Fortune Favors the Wicked
I read this a few days ago and absolutely loved it. I have not run into characters like these before and that was very refreshing. Benedict and Charlotte initially flirt with innuendos. Virtuous works becomes a hilarious metaphor. It is fun to watch developments in their flirtation and treasure hunting. Benedict's kindness and sympathy is well balanced by his humor and devilishness. Reading Charlotte's thoughts as she utters polite inanities is also entertaining. I didn't find kleenex necessary at all as I was laughing much of the time. There is definitely a sweetness to this story which I'm sure you will enjoy.
