About the Author

Emery Lee is a member of Romance Writers of America, Georgia Romance Writers, and the Historical Novel Society. Her love of romance, combined with meticulously researched historical settings, compelled her to fictionally explore the Georgian era in her own distinctly 18th century voice. Fortune's Son is the second title in a trilogy begun with The Highest Stakes. She is married with two children and resides in central Texas.

Reviews

"Lee brings the atmosphere of the Georgian era to life with lush descriptions that beg the reader to see, hear, feel and touch it all. She sweeps through a decade, bringing together an older heroine and younger hero in an atypical story. " - RT Book Reviews
"this proves to be a very enjoyable read with a multi-dimensional (and, surprisingly, male) protagonist" - Historical Novel Review
"I truly enjoyed immersing myself in the lives of these two and had a hard time putting the book down." - Broken Teepee
"One of my favorite historicals this year! " - Maggi Andersen Blog
"This novel will appeal to those readers who enjoy the damaged hero/nurturing heroine as well as the older woman/younger man tropes. If you like card games (like Blackjack) and gambling, this is definitely "the" book for you. I'm also recommending it to those who like to read romantic historical novels, more specifically, during the Georgian era." - Love Romance Passion
"The wonderful cast of characters breathed so much life into Emery's words, they became real to me. I love reading a book where you can tell the author loves (or hates) her characters and she definitely has the gift! Above all else, the focus is on the love story. *Happy sigh* We all need a good love story now and then.

I can't wait to read the previous book which is already on my Kobo E-Reader
