Fortune Favors the Wicked

I received this book from Tantor Media in exchange for a honest review.  I have always enjoyed romance novels, and this one did not disappoint.  I liked Ms. Romain’s writing style as well as the narrator’s voice which brought the book to life.  At times, I felt that this book did drag and was a little choppy.  However, the book did keep me interested.

The characters were not royalty but were commoners.  The hero was in the Royal Navy until a disease caused him to lose his eyesight.  Traveling around the world for the past four years has helped to alleviate some of Benedict Frost’s boredom.  What this reader couldn’t quite grasp is how a blind man could travel the world without a guide.  With only having lost his eyesight, he was extremely mobile.  This reader also couldn’t understand why people were interested in Benedict’s travel books.  The heroine also had a sordid past and needed to come to terms with who she was and who she wanted to be.  Charlotte Perry wants a better life for herself, her parents, and her “niece”.   When the Royal Mint offers a reward for locating stolen treasure both Charlotte and Benedict jump at the chance to locate the coins.  They both realize that love can be found in the strangest places.
