Fans who adore Julia Quinn, Eloisa James, and Sabrina Jeffries will savor Ashlyn Macnamara’s sensual new novel, which proves that two hearts are better than one. Years ago, when Isabelle Mears was still a young miss too infatuated to know better, she surrendered her innocence to a dishonorable man. Though ruined and cast out from society, she has worked hard to shelter her illegitimate son, Jack. Having sworn off men in her quiet but dignified life, Isabelle is unprepared for the deep longing that rips through her when a handsome stranger rescues her rambunctious six-year-old from the pounding ocean surf. George Upperton is a man in trouble with debts, women, and a meddling family. He is, by all accounts, the last gentleman on earth Isabelle should be drawn to. But loneliness is a hard mistress, and caution gives way to desire . . . even though Isabelle is convinced that happiness can’t be found in the arms of such a devilish rogue. Only when Jack is kidnapped does Isabelle discover the true depth of George’s devotion—and how far a good man will go to fight for the woman whose love is all that matters.Praise for A Most Devilish Rogue “This touchingly romantic and effortlessly plotted historical is a gem to be savored.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review) “A sensual romance, filled with the witty dialogue one expects from a Regency novel, and a plethora of enjoyable characters.”—New York Journal of Books “Satisfying . . .

The title ' A Most Devilish Rogue' initially drew me to this book. I expected a Regency romp where the hero is dashing and debonair and the heroine is feisty and beautiful and this is exactly what the book delivers but in a unique and interesting way.After reading the whole story I'm convinced the t...
First I have to give major props for the author for taking a character like George and making him the hero of his own book. In the last book, he had a bit part and he was pretty much a drunk lout. So the author going against grain and taking a character that it usually just the side kick to the hero...

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book...The second installment from Ashlyn Macnamara, A Most Devilish Rogue started out rather slow for me. I was not sure what to think of George or Isabelle or their situation for a long time. It was nice and all but the ...
