Though Reginald Sinclair is thankful to have been rescued by a British ship and then put to work on it, as he would surely have drowned after falling in the water, the Scotsman regrets some of his behavior during the time. Just because his memory of the past was gone, he should not have acted as he did on way too many occasions. When the opportunity to help a woman and her young sister presents itself, his actions make him feel surprisingly good. Rihanna’s life is not going well in London, and when Reginald offers to take her to Scotland and possible employment, she wonders if her luck is finally changing.
The Sinclair family follows a rule about helping others, and Reginald at first thinks this is his motivation. But seeing Rihanna happy touches something deep within him, and he comes to realize his reasons may be more personal. Neither feel they deserve each other after the life that they have led, and I really liked some of their more enlightening conversations. A little drama here and there added interest to the story, but it is mostly about two people discovering some important life lessons. The young girl is adorable and caused me to often smile. THE FATE OF A HIGHLAND RAKE is entertaining as Tammy Andresen brings unexpected developments into the lives of a likable couple.
Reginald Sinclair was deep in thought as he walked down the busy London dock, when suddenly he was bumped into by a woman. After she told him what happened and the man caught up, he took care of everything and gave her some money for food.
Fate seemed to step in that day because Reginald was trying to figure out his life but was having a really hard time. After losing his memory many years ago he had not lived the best of lives. But until recently, when his memory returned, he had no idea how he had been.
A wonderful journey of two people, each trying to make a new life and when he asks her to sail with him and his ship to Scotland she takes a chance and she and her little sister go. But he doesn't feel he is worthy of her and she is slow to trust.
The final story in the Brethren of the Stone, ending with Reginald who was lost in the first book. What a great ending that could only bring a sigh as I turned the last page. Cannot wait for more from this amazing author!
Rihanna was a gypsy who is caring for her little sister on the London streets by telling fortunes. Her mother, on her deathbed, made her promise to take her & her sister, Rosella to London & there she would find happiness. Well, that was 2 years ago & things were going from bad to worse.
Reg rescues Rihanna & Rosella & offers to take them back to his family where they will give her employment, food & sleeping quarters. Will Reg be tempted by the beauty, can she resist this sexy, kind Scottish ship Captain? This is a very short read but very good - just a sweet, loving family, romantic tale. I have enjoyed this whole series & have loved the entire group of siblings that swore to protect one another after their parents died. They accomplished this & now are all married with families - all stories were sweet, romantic with hunky Scots that you can't resist.
I was gifted the Advanced Reader Copy of this book; all opinions are my own & have been voluntarily given.
It reminded me of that old TV show, Dallas.

A lovely novella that as well as being part of the brilliant Fate of Fortunes series it’s also the conclusion to the Brethren of the Stone series so two reasons to read & love it. The author is the mistress of the novella, she always manages to pack so much detail into these short stories & this is no exception, ideal for an afternoon read or reading late at night & knowing you will get some sleep!
Whilst it could be read on its own it, I’ve loved the whole Brethren series & felt satisfied at its conclusion. Reg & Rihanna both lacking in self esteem find each other & bring out the best in each other
Reginald fearful he can no longer be the kindhearted, good man of his past sees Rihanna as his only chance to redeem the last thirteen years spent as a sailor and the unspeakable acts he's done since tragically losing his memory. Gypsy Rihanna, who is eager to protect and feed her younger sister, desperately clings to hope as she suffers demoralising harshships simply to survive. A chance encounter unspeakably changes the life of all three for the better.
A touching tale that's interwoven with yearning, alluring attraction, instant connection and an unwavering desire to be a better person, born from a past that has been steeped heavily in conflicting moments of pain and brief glimpses of happiness.
A great addition to the series that forms a nice conclusion to the Brethen of Stone series. I only wish it were longer!!!
