Why wasn’t their love enough?
Many years ago, Ivonne Wimpleton loved Chancy Faulkenhurst and hoped to marry him. Then one day, without any explanation, he abruptly sailed to India. Now, after five unsuccessful Seasons and a riding accident that left her with a slight limp, her only suitors are fortune-hunters and degenerates. Just as Ivy's resigned herself to spinsterhood, Chance unexpectedly returns. Unfortunately, his arrival coincides with her parents demanding she marry one of her beaus within a fortnight.
Upon returning to England, Chance is disillusioned, disfigured, and emotionally scarred, but his love for Ivy remains intact. Nearly penniless, he’s failed to earn the fortune he sought in order to earn permission to marry her. Still, when he discovers Ivy’s being forced to wed to prevent a scandalous secret from being revealed, he's determined to make her his bride.
Except, believing Chance made no effort to contact her all those years, Ivy’s furious. What’s more, in his absence, his father arranged a profitable marriage for Chance. As he battles his own inner demons, he must convince Ivy to risk loving him again. But will their parents’ interference jeopardize Chance and Ivy’s happiness once more?

Wonderful Ivy has been in love with Falcon since she was 15, Falcon was in love also. He was a second son, he decided to serve in India. He comes back 6 years later with a few disfigurements, but he still loves Ivy and Ivy still loves him. They just have to see the light.
Bride of Falcon by Collette Cameron is a great read. This is a fairly quick read, perfect for the historical romance fan with limited time for reading. Ms Cameron has given us a well-written story and filled it with amazing characters. Falcon and Ivonne's story is packed with drama, humor and spice. I enjoyed reading Bride of Falcon and look forward to my next book by Collette Cameron. Bride of Falcon is book 2 of the Waltz with a Rogue Novella Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I voluntarily read a free copy of this book that I received from BookFunnel.
BRIDE OF FALCON, the second novella in Collette Cameron's A Waltz with a Rogue series features Ivonne "Ivy" Wimpleton, the younger sister of Allen Wimpleton from the first novella in the series, A Kiss for Miss Kingsley. Ivy has been in love with her brother's friend, Chancy "Falcon" Faulkenhurst since she was a young girl. He went to India to work six years ago when she was only fifteen and has finally came back to England. She's had many suitors, but none she's interested in mostly because she's never gotten over her hope that Falcon returns her feelings. There was a lot going on in this second chance love story. One of Ivy's suitors, the most repugnant of them all is quite aggressive, and causes trouble as her rejection disrupts his plans. Chance is back, but he's not the same man and isn't sure any woman will want him. There's the usual nattering gossips who are more than happy to spread rumors whether or not they are true. The biggest hindrance to their love seems to be their own insecurities and misunderstandings. Even Prinny gets into the mix. At last, true love prevails and this young couple are free to declare themselves. Sweet story and likable characters. 4 stars *I listened to the audiobook version and was impressed with the narrator's ability to give individual voices to each of the varying characters.
