From the Publisher"One thing I like about this story is how Ms Connolly's characters may be characters that are familiar in many ways to readers of historical romances set in England, they are also different in ways that make them stand out. These two have some pretty good chemistry and intense sexual tension. What I really like here is that Sapphira's attraction to Corin doesn't cause her to do very stupid things. A Betting Chance is an entertaining romance that manages to be a little different from the same old formulaic historical romances out there that are set in England in the 19th century." ~ Mrs. Giggles
"A Betting Chance is a cleverly scripted story with an air of mystery and fascinating characters. A different aspect with the historical settings from a middle class perspective, which makes the tale all the more intriguing. I am so glad I picked up this book to read, it was very difficult to put down once started." ~ Emily for Single Title.com
"Tantalizing, true to the time period, and tightly written, A Betting Chance, has love scenes that take the breath away and clandestine dealings that keep the tension at the breaking point.
The fashions, the rules of conduct, and the flavor of London for this historical time are woven into this story. They give it a rich, realistic texture. However, the love scenes throb with emotion, stir the senses, and are SO satisfying. Moreover, when Corin realizes he wants Sapphira’s happiness above all else, I fell in love with him and deemed Sapphira one lucky lady who had gambled with far more than money and won." ~ Camellia for The Long and The Short of It
