ROCKLIFFE SERIES recommended in THE TIMES newspaper by Hilary Rose
Hazard: a game of Chance and Luck, made riskier when Fate is rolling the dice.
For Aristide Delacroix, the first throw summons shades from his past. A man he had met, just once, over a card-table ... and the lovely girl indirectly responsible for plunging his life into catastrophe.
For Lord Nicholas Wynstanton, tired of waiting for Madeleine Delacroix to make up her mind, it slyly suggests he begin a whole new game with loaded dice; while for Madeleine, it devises a terrifying lesson in missed opportunities and the uncertainty of second chances.
And for Genevieve Westin, hoping widowhood will be happier than marriage, it brings a rude awakening --- leaving a single, wild gamble her only option.
A cardsharp turned businessman, a duke's charming brother, a stubborn, razor-edged beauty and a desperate widow.
Four players in a game of Hazard ... all playing for very high stakes.
