Fortune’s Lady by Patricia Gaffney

While I don’t completely understand why this historical romance is titled “Fortune’s Lady,” it is clearly a wonderful read. Patricia Gaffney is gifted with words. “Fortune’s Lady” has elements of a spy novel woven into the romance. The passion that Cassandra and Philip share is nicely done. The tenderness is there, too. Cassandra and Philip find something in each other that they’ve never had before. As she comes out of her shell and comes into her own, he is pleasantly surprised and finds more about her to love.

There is plenty of angst for the star-crossed lovers to wade through. Plots of assassinations to uncover to protect the British crown. And a misguided saboteur who clearly has never been in love.

I’m already looking forward to my next Patricia Gaffney novel!
