Hallo, Hallo dear hearts,

I recently discovered a new publisher (Entangled) whilst featuring a guest for my Romance and Women’s Fiction book chat @SatBookChat Vivian Conroy (writing as Viv Royce for Entangled) as well as another author I highlighted via HFVBTs which was Lynn Winchester. When I saw this novel going on a blog tour, I thought it might be a rather interesting read and a more traditional Regency Romance series in which to seek out – as typically the past several years I’ve been reading lighter Regencies and/or the cosy comforting Regencies either mainstream and/or INSPY publishing houses.

This one of course felt to be a bit more traditional in the sense of what most people are expecting out of a Regency Rom and that made me smile a bit as its been half an age (at least!) since I’ve read the more traditional Regencies which are a bit more colourfully written and descriptively sensual in how they elude towards or outright describe the romantic bits of the story. They’re a fun read to have in your reading queue and this one was a bit more interesting due to the tongue-in-cheek bantering that seems to be going on between the lead characters! I love when lead characters aren’t quite an exact match in the opening of a novel – they might be opposites, they could be enemies or they could simply be people who are more oil and vinegar than a combination of personalities which lend well to romance!

Either way – sometimes those kinds of romances are interesting to read because of the tension and the quick-witted dialogue sequences which follow suit. This is my first time finding the writings of Ms LaCapra and I am hoping I can eventually read this series through my local library as the print edition was not available for the tour itself.

I happily had the chance to host an extract for this Regency Romance and although I made a few edits due to how I felt the context of the extract might not be in-line with what I regularly feature on Jorie Loves A Story – the overall message within the extract remains intact and you can gather quite a bit of what is happening between the two characters who are featured. If anything, it will either entice you to pick this up to read or it will confirm if its outside your readerly wanderings. I, for one, felt it sounded like a light read with a heap of humour and dashingly brilliant cheek!

Book Spotlight with Extract | “Diamond in the Rogue” (Lords of Chance series, No.3) by Wendy LaCapraDiamond in the Rogue (Book Spotlight w/ Extract)
Subtitle: Lords of Chance series | What a lady wants...
by Wendy LaCapra

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...
