  • Wonderful story of love and redemption!

    Rayne has been gone for two years, and Julia refuses to pine for him. But when he returns for the wedding of his sister to her brother, one look proves that the spark is still there, despite everyone's better judgment. Rayne knows he's not good enough for her, but Julia doesn't let that get in her way. I loved Julia's determination and inner strength that allowed her to stand up to Rayne despite his mountain of regrets and insecurities. There's a slight hint of BDSM in their relationship, just enough to prove to Rayne that Julia is his match. Rayne isn't a sympathetic character in the least, until he's seen through Julia's eyes. From her viewpoint, he's transformed into the hero she deserves. Their history that played out in the first two books was touched upon enough in this book to make it a true standalone, though those who have read the other books will have a better understanding of all the players in this tightly-connected circle of friends. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

  • Fabulous story & series!

    Diamond in the Rogue is the third book in author Wendy LaCapra’s Lords of Chance series. For those of us following this series, Rayne’s story was heavily anticipated and it most definitely did not disappoint! A fabulous read and an excellent addition to this series! Graham Laithe the Earl of Rayne is back! After two years of exile in America, he’s back to see his sister married and to settle his estate. He has no plans to stay and is itching to leave permanently. Lady Julia’s childhood made her lose faith in love. Then Rayne entered her life.  Thinking herself in love and one forbidden kiss between them, she’s devastated when Rayne walks out of her life. Oh my, what an absolutely fabulous story and couple! For those of us who have been with this series from the beginning, we’ve already met Julia and Rayne. Both characters have made appearances in the previous stories. Although I believe you could read this story as a stand-alone, I highly recommend you read the previous books to understand the history between all the characters. I loved Rayne! He’s definitely a tortured hero. He wants Julia but feels he’s not good enough for her and has nothing to give her. His feelings for her are real and you sense the struggle within him wanting her but yet continually trying to resist her. You also see how the loss of his friends truly affected him and how he feels like an outsider. He was definitely a hero I wanted to see finally get his HEA and I loved him with Julia. The chemistry and dialogue between these two was fabulous! Julia was absolutely perfect for him and the more I got to know her the more I liked her. Julia is a kind, clever and insightful young woman. She was hurt by Rayne’s departure two years ago and is scared to be hurt again. When Lord Farring a mutual friend suggests she take steps to prevent Rayne from leaving again, she decides to take one more chance! Ms. LaCapra wrote a fabulous story for this couple and I absolutely loved the journey she took us on to get to this couple’s well deserved HEA! I enjoyed seeing characters from the past books and look forward to the next book in this series. I can’t wait to get Lord Farring’s story and catch up with the rest of the Lords of Chance! This has been a fabulous series so far and one I highly recommend!

  • Fantastic Historical Romance

    Diamond In The Rogue is a fantastic and fast-paced historical romance by Wendy LaCapra. Ms. LaCapra has provided readers with a book that is well-written. My favorite part of this book is the characters, they are outstanding and just plain lovable. Rayne is the Earl of Rayne and has returned to England just in time for his sister's wedding. Julia was smitten with Rayne before he tried to ruin her. She still wants him, but Rayne feels undeserving of anything good in his life. Rayne and Julia's story is packed with drama, humor, sexy bits and action. I enjoyed every page of this book and look forward to my next book by Wendy LaCapra. Diamond In The Rogue is part of the Lords of Chance Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book that I received from NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

  • A series that keep getting better!

    Wow! This series just keeps getting better. Wendy LaCapra’s latest book ‘Diamond in the Rough’ follows Lady Julia and Lord Rayne, who share a memorable kiss before her season. However, Rayne’s friend Brompton insists that he leaves before he ruins Julia. Yet Julia declares to her sister and brother and their partners, that she loves Rayne. His sudden departure to New York for several years, embarrasses her, yet his return for his sister’s marriage to his friend, Lord Markham (Julia’s brother), finds him once again, mesmerised by Julia. Events coordinated by his friend and Julia, put the couple together once again. And it is from then on, that the romance begins to become heated. I was hooked from the very beginning. Rayne’s intense feelings for Julia, fall from the pages. It was hard to pull myself away from this book. Julia is so determined to unravel Rayne, despite his determination to shield her from the ‘real’ him. Both of these characters were mesmerising! The intensity of their feelings for each other, could either spell success or despair. This book will stay with me for quite some time. I received an ARC from NetGalley, in exchange for my honest review.

  • Loved!

    This is the third book in the Lords of Chance series by Wendy LaCapra. There were things going on from the previous books that I didn't understand at first, so I'll probably go back and read those books. In an act of revenge, Lord Rayne kissed Lady Julia and was sent packing to America. He's back to give his sister away in marriage and settle his affairs before returning to America. But when he sees Lady Julia the time and a distance apart has done nothing to dispel how he feels about her. Lady Julia has given up on love because she'll only ever love Lord Rayne. Seeing him at her brother's wedding makes it easier for her to follow through Farring's idea and kidnap Rayne, compromising them both. I really enjoyed this book. They are both in love with each other and have a hard time expressing their true feelings. And every time they talk, they seem to argue. Rayne doesn't think he is good enough to be a husband and especially not for Julia. For her, there is no one else. I enjoyed that this book moved at a quick pace. Right away there is an adventure as they travel to deliver a carriage. Finding themselves in such close quarters makes it harder to deny their feelings. The Lord and Lady also shared some steamy scenes. I'm glad I requested this ARC from Entangled Publishing and was introduced to a new to me author. I'm looking forward to reading the other books in this series. And is Farring getting his own book? #DiamondInTheRouge #NetGalley #EntangledPublishing
