As they did each day, they walked to Piccadilly and hired a hack for the journey to White Chapel. nce in so undesirable a borough would likely insure the dowager's wrath, Anna thought. Mindful of their safety, Anna had solicited Jimmy's protection for these afternoon trips. It was highly unlikely that their dependents in the East End would allow a hand to be brought against the former Miss de Mouchet and her French maid.

Lady By Chance by Cheryl Bolen is an outstanding historical romance. Bolen has provided readers with a well-written book and a cast of characters that are phenomenal. Believing he is a spy, Anna cheats in a card game to force Charles to marry her so she can pass on information to her mother's friend that works in the Home Office. Charles and Anna's story is loaded with drama, humor, sexy bits, action and suspense. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Cheryl Bolen soon

This has been sitting in my TBR pile for years. I must have had a sixth sense warning me to avoid it, but I decided that, as I had bought it, there was a need to read it. Having done so, I'm flabbergasted by the many positive reviews.
The original scam is laughable. The ease with which the H is forced to marry the h is ridiculous, as is the timing of getting a special licence. The forced consummation and splendiferous moaning of the h's name had me in fits of laughter. The naive and dishonest h causes a noble man to be assassinated and the H has only a momentary qualm before pining for her again? (Bolen devotes more time to him getting het up by the attention she receives from and shows to other men, even though he admires and relies on the agent she causes to be killed. I don't think so! )
The East End visits are contrived and implausible. The rescue trip to France is even more so. The h is a gullible and dishonest and traitorous twit. The H is supposedly responsible for many of England's victories against Napoleon. Once again, I don't think so. When he isn't being ridiculously manipulated by his wife he is behaving like a petulant ass. And his remorse for the jealousy that was undeserved is about two sentences long. Ridiculous.
ETA The two stars are for the cover (which I love) plus Bolen's competent grasp of syntax and spelling, which are not always present in current HRs.

Fun story set about 1815 in London. England is at war with France. The heroine, Anna, is the rich, beautiful daughter of a British nobleman and his mistress who was born in France, but who was very pro-British. Another noble family forced the heroine out of a prominent school, so she caries a grudge against the family. An official of the British Foreign office approached Anna and told her that the government wanted her to spy on the target. After declining once, he told her that this was her chance for revenge against the current Marquess. (Marquess is just below a duke and above an Earl.)

Anna marries the Marquess and finds that she is actually attracted to the current Marquess, who has a very different personality than his father who was the one who got her kicked out of school. There is considerable tension between Anna and her mother-in-law.

The process of learning that it was the first official who is actually the traitor for the French has many ups and down.

The author uses real street names in London.

The violence is pretty mild. The sex is between husband and wife, but pretty graphic.

I read the third in this series "Countess by Coincidence" first and felt compelled to look for the first in the series. Glad for it. Quite a mystery and quite a bumpy start to a relationship. French and English spies, the Foreign Office, nasty intrigue and a heap of misunderstandings had me racing through to the end of this engaging story. Several times throughout the book I would exclaim quietly, "If they only had telephones!" How silly is that? In this second Cheryl Bolen book I've read, I am now a true believer in her ability to draw me into the story, become involved with the characters, and close the book feeling well entertained. Ms. Bolen has a knack with dialogue, and I find it appears true to the time and place. No apparent anachronisms jarring me out of the tale. I have purchased the second in this series "Duchess by Mistake" and plan to take a leisurely afternoon to enjoy meeting new characters and old friends within its confines.

Cheryl Bolen creates yet another classic romance. She is the Queen of Recency. Her characters are well developed and the plot is intricate yet moves along at a good pace.

Anna is the bastard daughter of a duke. He dies when she was young. Her mother, a Frenchwoman, wants nothing more than her daughter be part of the ton. By the time she is 13, she is an orphan. A very rich one.

Charles is the Marquess of Haverstock. His father was cruel and gambled away most of the family money.

Anna tricks Charles into marriage. Each thinks the other is a traitor to Britain for France.

Can love truly grow in these circumstances?

What a lovely ride at an enjoyable pace.

Swift Summer
