"Bride of Falcon" is the part of the A Waltz with a Rogue series. Although the tone of this one is slightly more somber than the last, it’s still a humorous, engaging read about a rocky path to love. Ms. Cameron creates the most delightful characters. Ivonne and Chance are truly well matched. They butt heads constantly and their verbal sparring is quite entertaining. Once again the characters' thoughts are part of the story and give us a great combination of insight and laughs. I highly recommend this series. It’s a great way to spend a rainy afternoon.
The Story: Ivonne couldn’t believe that he was back. After all, he left with so much as a goodbye when he broke her heart. Chance came back from India a scared and different man. He would never be worthy of a woman like Ivonne. But fate may have other plans.
Why wasn’t their love enough?
Many years ago, Ivonne Wimpleton loved Chancy Faulkenhurst and hoped to marry him. Then one day, without any explanation, he abruptly sailed to India. Now, after five unsuccessful Seasons and a riding accident that left her with a slight limp, her only suitors are fortune-hunters and degenerates. Just as Ivy's resigned herself to spinsterhood, Chance unexpectedly returns. Unfortunately, his arrival coincides with her parents demanding she marry one of her beaus within a fortnight.
Upon returning to England, Chance is disillusioned, disfigured, and emotionally scarred, but his love for Ivy remains intact. Nearly penniless, he’s failed to earn the fortune he sought in order to earn permission to marry her. Still, when he discovers Ivy’s being forced to wed to prevent a scandalous secret from being revealed, he's determined to make her his bride.
Except, believing Chance made no effort to contact her all those years, Ivy’s furious. What’s more, in his absence, his father arranged a profitable marriage for Chance. As he battles his own inner demons, he must convince Ivy to risk loving him again. But will their parents’ interference jeopardize Chance and Ivy’s happiness once more?
Buy the second book in the Waltz with a Rogue historical Regency romance series for a rousing, emotional, and romantic adventure you can't put down.
Though this book is part of a series, it can easily be read as a stand-alone.
