"Theresa Romain writes with a delightfully romantic flair." –USA Today bestselling author Julianne MacLean
Indecently Lucky
As a lieutenant in the Royal Navy, Benedict Frost had the respect of every man on board—and the adoration of the women in every port. When injury ends his naval career, the silver-tongued libertine can hardly stomach the boredom. Not after everything—and everyone—he's experienced. Good thing a new adventure has just fallen into his lap...
When courtesan Charlotte Perry learns the Royal Mint is offering a reward for finding a cache of stolen gold coins, she seizes the chance to build a new life for herself. As the treasure hunt begins, she realizes her tenacity is matched only by Benedict's—and that sometimes adversaries can make the best allies. But when the search for treasure becomes a discovery of pleasure, they'll be forced to decide if they can sacrifice the lives they've always dreamed of for a love they've never known...

  • Publisher's Weekly

    February 8, 2016
    Inspired by a real-life 19th-century lieutenant, Romain (A Gentleman’s Game) takes off on a delightful flight of fancy that puts visually impaired Royal Navy Lieutenant Benedict Frost in search of a fortune in stolen gold in the first of her Royal Reward series. Should he find it, the reward will be the basis for the dowry of his sister, Georgette. The hunt brings him to the doorstep of Charlotte Perry, the prodigal daughter of Rev. John Perry, in Derbyshire, England. She’s abandoned her position as a London courtesan and returned home in search of the stolen loot, planning to use the reward to start a new life. Charlotte has her own suspicions about the treasure’s specific location, and the identity of the thief as well. The duo quickly decide that their combined nine senses make them a stellar team in pursuit of riches and, later, love. Romain exercises her flair for unconventional Regency characters with this intriguing couple. Agent: Paige Wheeler, Folio Literary Management.
