Book Review For: Once a Rebel by Mary Jo Putney
Once a Rebel (Rogues Redeemed) - Mary Jo Putney

'Once a Rebel' by Mary Jo Putney is Book Two in The "Rogues Redeemed" series. This is the story of Catherine Callista 'Callie' Brooke and Lord George Gordon 'Richard' Audley. I have read the other book in this series but feel this can easily be a standalone book.
Callie and Richard have been childhood best friends until one day when she was sixteen her father informed her that she will marry and older man. Callie's father never really liked her, he beat her and was happy to be rid of her. The same with Richard, his father never had any use for him since he was the third son of Marquwss of Kingston. So they had build a closeness that each went to the other for help and advice. So when Callie needed away out of this up and coming marriage she ran to Richard for help. Richard suggested they run off and get married. Scotland allows a 16 girl to marry and Richard was 21. But they were caught midway there and Callie was forced to go through with the marriage to save Richard from her father trying to kill him. His father didn't care if he was killed but Callie stood firm that she would only go through this marriage if her father didn't hurt Richard. But her father did ship him off and she thought he had died on the prison ship. Now years later, Callie is a widow with two step-children on the run from her former husbands family member. This has her in Washington DC where there is a fight brewing and she just got placed in the middle of it. Richard is an Captain now and has been asked to help find a former English Women by her family. It seem that she is thought to be in danger and they also want to make sure that she is well off. But when Richard finds this women he sees it Callie who he hasn't seen since that faithful night they were separated. Callie is using a false name to protect herself and her step children. But Richard claimed her as his wife to save her from the headed seen he found her in. But can these two pickup where they left off or are they meant to be more than best friends?

Awesome Historical Romance
Her Wicked Proposal (League of Rogues) - Lauren Smith,Heather Wilds

Her Wicked Proposal by Lauren Smith is a phenomenal read.  Ms Smith has delivered a well-written historical romance book.  The characters are amazing.  Cedric and Anne's story is loaded with drama, suspense, humor and sizzle.  I enjoyed this book from cover to cover and look forward to reading more from Lauren Smith in the future.  Her Wicked Proposal is book 3 of The League Of Rogues Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

 

I won a copy of this book.

4 out of 5 stars for Traitor in Her Arms (The Scarlet Chronicles #1) by Shana Galen ~ ARC Review

First book in a new series by the author but just as great as any of her other series.

Widowed Gabrielle has no other choice but to resort to thievery to pay off her late husband’s gambling debts or she will have to face a fate much worse than jail. It’s not what she would have wanted to do with her life but at the time there was not much choice left for her. Lord Ramsey never thought Gabrielle would become the remarkable thief she seems to be, but then again they hadn’t talked to each other since before she got married to no other than to one of his good old friends, and way before he got involved in serious troubles of his own.

 

The love story was fabulous! I was drawn to the couple from page one. The relationship they built felt real and feasible and although there was a clear physical attraction they didn’t jump into each other’s bed at the first chance they got. Gabrielle was smart and cautious and even when she started developing feelings for our hero she didn’t let her emotions rule over her instincts and that to me it’s the best kind of heroine there could possibly exist. Ramsey was charmer with a guilty conscience so although he had a mission of his own and tried to convince himself he only had to care for himself, he always tried to protect Gabrielle as much as he could. He truly was the best kind of rogue.

 

We know it’s a romance story and that you know, HEA, but the way the city of Paris during the Reign of Terror was described- it seriously gave me goosebumps. The gory details and that feeling of fear that felt so palpable and real, and the fact that the author didn’t shrink away from any of it for the sake of romance made this book an even more rewarding and enjoyable read. It was a great read indeed and I definitely will continue reading the series.

 

 

** I received this book from the author at no cost to me and I volunteered to read it; this is my honest opinion and given without any influence by the author or publisher.***

"The intensity of Traitor in Her Arms reaches out and grabs you from the opening page and does not let up until the thrilling climax."
   —Ashlyn Macnamara

 

"If you are looking for a fast-paced adventure combined with a passionate romance, then you will enjoy Traitor in Her Arms."
   —Rakes and Rascals

 

After her late husband leaves her in debt to some dangerous people, Lady Gabrielle McCullough is forced to become a thief. In the intervening years, her skills have not gone unnoticed. After being recruited by the Scarlet Pimpernel, the mysterious do-gooder spiriting aristocrats out of revolutionary France, Gabrielle crosses the Channel for the most daring mission of her life. Accompanying her is the Earl of Sedgwick, a thief in his own right and an enticingly masculine presence. The man is not to be trusted—nor is Gabrielle's body when he's near.

 

Ramsey Barnes would not say he is an honorable man. His whole life has been based on a lie; why change now? Although it pains him to deceive the tantalizing Gabrielle, he's working toward an altogether different objective: unmasking the Scarlet Pimpernel. If Ramsey fails, his blackmailer will ruin him. But when Ramsey's confronted with the carnage of the Reign of Terror, he seeks refuge in Gabrielle's heated embrace. Now he faces a terrible choice: betray the woman who's stolen his heart—or risk losing everything.

A Marriage of Rogues - Margaret Moore

I don't know that I'd call the two of them rogues, mildly roguish maybe but overall fun characters.  When her fathers loses everything including her dowry to him she decides to confront him and make him marry her. He goes along with her and realises that what he thought at first was a business deal isn't.

 

I liked her, liked the characters and they behaved true to themselves and I want to read more by this author.

Book Review For: Rogues Like it Scot
Rogues Like it Scot (Must Love Rogues Book 5) - Eva Devon

'Rogues Like it Scot' by Eva Devon is Book Five in the "Must Love Rogues" series. This is the story of Damian Peterboro and Lady Andromeda Gateshead, Marchioness of Schollingbrook. This is my first book that I have read in this series so far, so for me this was a standalone book
Damian left London to head to India as a Captain on' His Majesty's Army' but left about three years later and heded to Asia and the Ottoman Empire. Damina had not been heard of since until a party at Andromeda where she was having Explorer and Poet Lord Peregrine Brinkley speak. Damian spoke out against all that Lord Brinkley was saying. Although Andromeda seem to agree that Lord Brinkley spoke of nonsense her and Damian butted heads.
Andromeda had a abusive relationship with her husband and now that he is dead... she feels free and her passion for hosting parties has given her a purpose. In addition, she is wealthy and is a sister to The Duke of Clyde so she has no need to remarry.
Damian has his own issue and the scars on his face and sole show that. Damian once was a friend to
The Duke of Clyde who is Andromeda's brother, but hasn't seen him in 20 years. But they pick up their friendship which leads him to get to know Andromeda more. Damian finds her very smart and beautiful.
This was a enjoyable easy read that I really enjoyed.
