Fortune Favors the Wicked by Theresa Romain

Fortune Favors the Wicked by Theresa Romain

This is book 1 in the Royal Rewards duo.

Former courtesan, Charlotte Perry, wants to find the stolen cash of gold coins so that she can collect the reward and start her life over. She didn't count on the handsome stranger that wanted it for himself just as much as she did, or that she would find herself attracted to the man.

After going blind while in the Royal Navy, Benedict Frost is living off of the half pay that is awarded to him. He wants the reward to make sure that his sister is taken care of.  But when he meets Charlotte, they have to decide whether to be adversaries or to become partners and find the missing gold together.

Will Charlotte and Benedict be able to find the gold before someone else does?

I really enjoyed this story. It is not often that you encounter a H/H with a disability, but Benedict didn't let that stop him from doing all of the things that he loved. He had learned to adapt to a new way of life that compensated for his loss in a way that he was way better at things than most sighted people.

I liked Charlotte too. I feel like she was taken advantage of when she was young and then she made the most of that situation. She was trying to make a new life for herself and never expected to find love. She was used to men facing for her for her looks, so when meeting Benedict she knew that any attraction he felt for her, had to be for other reasons. I liked that they became friends and got to know one another before they decided to act on their mutual attraction.

I'm excited to read the next book, Passion Favors the Bold, which will be released in February, 2017.

You can purchase this book at the following retailers:

Thanks go out to Kensington via NetGalley for a copy of the book in exchange of an honest review.
