What's a lady to do...

Lady Charlotte has never been the typical English lady. Nor does she intend to be when her uncle makes a bid to inherit everything - the land, the money. All that had been her father's a decade before. So when her uncle forces the issue, Charlotte knows her time is up. She is making her move. As the poor gentleman, Charlie. 

In two weeks' time, she plans to take control of her future while stripping her uncle of his.

When she meets her match...

Lord Greyson, the Earl of Claymore, can't seem to forget the mysterious lady he saved from being compromised, only for her to punch him in the face and descend a balcony to be rid of him.  He doesn't expect to meet her again so soon, and not like this. As a lad who looks distinctly familiar, with a sharp tongue and a spirit that demands independence.

What else is Greyson to do but watch over his little caterpillar, offering her safety and employment in his stables? It's the perfect solution. Or so he thinks. 

And finds herself falling in love...

What neither one of them expects is the sexual tension that ignites between them. What's a girl to do when she finds herself falling for her employer. And that he seems to feel the same...for his stable hand.  But that's the least of their problems as a common enemy threatens to tear them apart, one that has no intention of letting either one of them off the hook.

It's winner take all - breeches edition. And Charlie plays to win.

I really like your writing style. Very intriguing and descriptive. Was a bit confused at first at Charlotte's age at the beginning but overall very awesome!
A+ parenting right here, especially from a father to his daughter in this time period.

Gripping and very well introduced. Such intelligence you have used to denote female power by comparing it with the game of chess. Wonderful!

The poor girl! And having to live with that obviously horrible uncle of hers!

"Yer a lady, Charlotte,"
                              Reminded me of, 
                              "Yer a wizard, Harry,"

Nah, girl. Chess is one of the more realistic games, where the female (queen) is important, and can handle herself.
