Hey all, I hope this post finds you well and staying cool!  I don't know about you but I will be so glad when Fall gets here, this heat is just crazy!  At least it gives me an excuse to stay inside and read :)
This past week I received one book for review: Fortune's Son by Emery Lee, which is the sequel to Lee's 2010 novel The Highest Stakes. I really enjoyed the first book so I am looking forward to the continuation.

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...

Susannah, Lady Messingham, is a woman with a past who refuses to belong to any man again. But Philip's skill catches her eye and she persuades him to teach her how to win at the tables. 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...

Well, that's my mailbox...what great books did you receive?


  1. I should be getting this one soon myself. I'm looking forward to it!

  2. Commenting on your current read - Venetia was a gorgeous book.

  3. Wow! Fortune's Son sounds like an "edge of the seat" read which is quite different from the usual Georgian England books. Thanks for the great review, Amy. I must say you know how to peak someone's interest in a book.

  4. I don't think this book is my cup of tea, but I certainly hope you enjoy it!
