Lord of Fortune (Legendary Rogues Book 3) Kindle Edition
“I don’t think I know enough superlatives to describe this book! It is wonderfully, magically delicious. It sucked me in from the very first sentence and didn’t turn me loose – not even at the end….”
“If you love a deep, passionate romance with a bit of mystery, then this is the book for you!”

I haven't read any of the previous books of this series, but I really enjoyed this third book of Ms. Burke's Legendary Rogues series due to the wonderful main characters that find it hard to trust each other at first; and dialogue that had me intrigued to keep reading in order to find out whether the hero was right or wrong when it came to what he believed about the valuable artefact her grandfather found. As for the way this story started, it sets the fast-pace of the book and drew me in immediately because of what the hero is doing. However, things get very interesting when the heroine enters the picture. Will she get her way?
Both the main characters are fascinating due to their back stories and their growing relationship. Yet, what I liked most of all is the obstacles these two had to overcome to be together. Will the heroine finally be free of her past? Will the heroine be able to be with the hero, especially when there's something big that's holding her back? Moreover, the heroine is resilient, courageous and I liked that she gave the hero a chance, even though it isn't easy for her to trust after what her jerk of a husband did in the past. I also liked how she challenged the hero, especially in the beginning because she wants to do right for her family name. Will she be able to prove the hero is wrong? While the hero, he's good at what he does in searching for antiquities and I loved his enthusiasm for what he does. I also liked how confident he was that he'd get to the bottom of the mystery of whether the artefact was indeed a fake. Yet, I couldn't help but sympathize with the hero because of what he learns about his parentage and that everything he believed was a lie. Can he handle the truth to be able to fulfil his new role?
Overall, Ms. Burke has delivered a really good read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was strong; the romance was delightful and had me hoping for the best for these two, as they have a big obstacle to overcome to be together; and the ending had me worried for the main characters because of what they go through, but had me loving that these two finally get their shot at happy ever after. I would recommend Lord of Fortune by Darcy Burke, if you enjoy Historical Romance or books by authors Jess Michaels, Erica Ridley, Christi Caldwell and Ella Quinn.
I, like many others have been waiting a long time for the third instalment in this series. It was well worth the wait. This book has all the aspects of the Dashingly, Handsome, Hero Penn Bowen is an adventurer and is always in search of a Quest and a willing women to for fill his carefree life style. While on his latest quest to retrieve a valuable artefact he encounters the lovely and clever Amelia Gardiner. She to is on a quest for her deceased Grandfather., Her quest is to find the valuable ancient artefact and replace the it fake the is in the Oxford Museum. This is the beginning of a wonderful adventure for the Hero and Heroine to find the stolen artefact and defeat the greedy thief. I just loved every page of this book and just could not put this book down till the HEA ending. Darcy Burke does not disappoint in the telling of this very exciting tale. I would recommend this book with 5+ stars.

I had a feeling when I read about the young Penn in the first of the series that I would be captivated with him, and this has certainly been the case. I loved this book from the very start, and it appears there is still a little more to find out about him, as it seems I won’t find out whether he becomes the new Earl of Stratton until the last book of the series.
I love this series and have been waiting for Penn's story for three long years! I am happy to say, this book was totally worth the wait!
Pennard "Penn" Bowen is the adopted son of Rhys Bowen, a scholar and treasure hunter. The book opens with Penn and his assistant Egg, finding a dagger and being confronted by a masked person with a gun, claiming the dagger is rightfully theirs. Penn easily overpowers the would be thief, only to lose the dagger to another band of villains and left tied up along with Egg and the first thief!
Working together they free themselves and introductions are made, the thief is Mrs. Amelia Forrest, granddaughter of Jonathan Gardiner - the antiquarian who found the Heart of Llanllwch - a stone that is said to be one of the Thirteen Treasures gathered by King Arthur and his knights. The Dagger is said to counteract the effect of the Heart. Amelia is upset that the dagger was lost and wants to go after it - but Penn tells her the dagger is a fake and that he believes the Heart is as well. Amelia is enraged, the Heart was her grandfather's greatest find and his legacy will be ruined if the Heart is fake. She will to work with him to retrieve the Dagger to prove that he is wrong!
This is the start of an amazing adventure and along the way they will encounter danger, secrets, heartache, betrayal and Amelia and Penn will both have to deal with shocking surprises that could change everything they have believed.
The book is a well written, fast paced action/adventure romance that will keep you turning pages as fast as you can. There are heart stopping moments, steamy love scenes, long kept secrets revealed, cameos with Cassie, Andy, Cate, Elijah, Rhys, Margery & Gideon, really nasty villains, a bit of magic, treasure and finally a hard earned HEA.
This is the third book in the series and it can be read as a stand alone title, but I would recommend reading the series in order - they are all fantastic, so no hardship there :) - so you have a better understanding of "The Order" and the history behind the Thirteen Treasures. I highly recommend this book, but I will state that I dropped off 1/2 a star because the book does have adultery - This is a completely personal reason and in no way reflects on the author's writing ability.
