"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.
When is love not enough?
After five Seasons, Ivonne Wimpleton has accepted she’s a haute ton undesirable. Her only suitors are men desperate to get their hands on her marriage settlement. Guarded and aloof, and always a bit ungraceful, she’s resigned herself to spinsterhood. She doesn’t mind her fate since Chancy Faulkenhurst, the man who once held her heart, left for India without an explanation.
Six years later Chance returns to England physically and emotionally scarred. His love for Ivonne remains just as strong, and when he learns she must choose one of the degenerates who've offered for her, he's determined that none should have her but him. Except, not only is she infuriated he made no effort to contact her in all their years apart, in Chance’s absence, his father arranged a marriage for him and fully expects Chance to honor the agreement.
Caution: This historical Regency romance contains an intrepid, spinsterish wallflower convinced she's unworthy of love, a wounded hero determined to persuade her otherwise, and a cunning villainess you'll hope gets her comeuppance.
