In an act of revenge, Lord Rayne kissed Lady Julia and was sent packing to America. But now he’s back to settle his affairs and give away his sister in marriage, until he meets up with the alluring yet innocent Lady Julia again. He doesn’t regret their first kiss, but he was never good enough for her.

Lady Julia had two years to forget the moody and mercurial Earl of Rayne. But one look, and she knows they’re meant to be together. Be damned with his and her brother’s objections, she’ll just jump on the back of Rayne’s departing carriage and compromise them both thoroughly.

Only, Julia never expected her forbidding Lord to be so good at resisting temptation...

4.5 rounded to 5

This was my first book by this author. I haven't read the first two books in the series, but I did buy them. If I find a lot of their beginning story is found in either of those books I will add a note here. This book can be read as a standalone but I do feel like it would be better ...more

Diamond in the Rogue is book 3 in the Lords of Chance series by Wendy LaCapra. I have truly enjoyed each book in this series. They are not stand alones.

But Lord Rayne knew he was not good enou ...more

By Cheryl November 11, 2019

This was an enthralling read. Julia was certainly up for a challenge and was determined to for Rayne to come to terms with his feelings. Rayne was a complex character, he had been quite the rogue but he was also lost soul. He felt he was distant from his friends and didn’t know how to bridge the gap ...more

By Michelle November 03, 2019

Ooooh I loved this one! Lord Rayne had malicious intent when he first kisses Lady Julia. Their chemistry was palpable - even back in the staid period they were in. The complex path to their romance was such a fun one. I loved all the supporting characters and the non-traditional path they helped the ...more
