Graham Foster loves the adventure of
being a tomb raider in Egypt when he finds out he has
unexpectedly inherited a baroncy. Heading home to settle
his estates, he discovers his family has taken over his new
homes, displacing the previous owners.
Moira Hughes was at her fatherís side
when he died, but not before he tells her he has taken care
of his family. However, no one can find this codicil to his
will. Moira sets out to find the proof that she and her
mother were supposed receive a portion of his assets.
As Moira attempts to find out the truth
behind the missing codicil with Grahamís help, the
adventurer and the bereft woman discover that, despite each
otherís unwillingness, feelings are beginning to grow.
The mystery continues to unfold, as do
several subplots that eventually all tie together.
I was happy to read Fortuneís
Kiss and get to know the characters. Nearly all of
the players are fleshed out and interesting in some way.
Grahamís family is broken, but the wounds begin to heal in
subtle, but mostly convincing ways. Moira can be a bit
repetitive, but it plays pretty well against the growth of
Grahamís character. All in all, this was fun love story
with a nice background of mystery.
