Publisher's Summary

Portia St. Claire's brother has gambled and lost, throwing her into the power of ruthless men. Their price for his life is her virtue, to be auctioned off in London's most notorious brothel. To retrieve an incriminating letter, Bryght Malloren once broke into a house where he was greeted at pistol point by a resolute woman - a woman he could swear stands before him, masked and trembling, on a madam's auction block. Unable to leave Portia to such a cruel fate, Bryght turns the private wager into a very public game of seduction, one that confirms his reputation as a shameless rake and keeps all of London society breathless with anticipation. But on a night shimmering with destiny, truth, and passion, those who tempt fortune risk losing everything, including their hearts.

where's the romance?

What would have made Tempting Fortune better?

Any real romance between the h/h. He wants her and then it is just a series of manipulations to the wedding. It is difficult to like a hero that does not act like one to the heroine. He might like/love her but you never get a sense of that.
The h/h don't have any loving or even warm conversations. He is trying to get her into bed and she is trying not to marry him. There is no real affection or warmth between them so you can't believe in a possible HEA.

Has Tempting Fortune turned you off from other books in this genre?

I never judge all books based on only one and this question is not a good gauge of how bad the book is

What didn’t you like about Alison Larkin’s performance?

It is hard to know if it's her or that the characters are so unlikable that her voice grates on my nerves. She does the best she can with a bad situation.

What character would you cut from Tempting Fortune?

Too many to list. No one in this books seems to be someone you could cheer for .

Any additional comments?

Just glad it was part of the Romance Package and I did not have to pay the member price, it makes me feel a little better, as only time was wasted.
