Editorial Reviews

Review

Heath steals your heart, then takes you on a journey that will leave you torn between tears and joy. (Christina Dodd)

Heath is a consummate storyteller, whose characters leap from the pages. Their powerful emotions and intense passions translate exceptionally well to readers, allowing them to become deeply involved in the fascinating plot and leaving them breathless and wanting more. (RT Book Reviews (top pick) - 4.5 stars - Praise for LORD OF TEMPTATION)

“The Duke of Weddington is perfect hero material. Historical readers will clamor for more.” (Liz Carlyle)

“She writes the most powerfully moving love stories in romance today.” (Jill Barnett, RITA Award-Winner)

“She writes from the heart and it shows!” (The Literary Times)

“Sensitive, funny and altogether enchanting!” (Dallas News)

“Master storyteller Heath perfectly threads together emotional power and deep romance. Taking her cue from Dickens’ classic Oliver Twist, she reinvents the story so we see what might have happened to the older Oliver. Few writers engage readers’ hearts and minds as beautifully as Heath certainly does.” Top Pick (Romantic Times BOOKclub)

“Lorraine Heath is an incredible talent!” (Katherine Sutcliffe, author of HOT AUGUST MOON)

Deep emotions, sensuality and pathos combine and the healing power of love triumphs in another Heath masterpiece (Romantic Times BOOKclub, 4 1/2 stars)

About the Author

Lorraine Heath always dreamed of being a writer. After graduating from the University of Texas, she wrote training manuals, press releases for a publicist, articles, and computer code, but something was always missing. In 1990, she read a romance novel and not only became hooked on the genre, but quickly realized what her writing lacked: rebels, scoundrels, and rogues. She's been writing about them ever since. Her work has been recognized with numerous industry awards, including RWA's RITA®, a HOLT Medallion, and a Romantic Times Career Achievement Award. Her novels have appeared on the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists.

Just an ok book for me. Perhaps because the plot is one I find most trite and well, unbelievable. The heroine “Phee” a rich and well know aristocrat, loses her memory and is found and taken home by a man she has treated extremely poorly, to say the least. He of course tells her she is his servant.

By design you don’t like “ Phee” much in the beginning, problem for me was, I never did like her much until the last quarter of the book. Yes, there were reasons for her behavior, and they were stunning but then she immediately does a complete turn around and becomes a different person. Sure!

The last quarter of the book is the only reason I give it 3 stars. It was satisfying and well written and made you feel for the characters. However the scene where “Phee” regains her memory seemed like a scene from the old movie “Overboard”.

I did like the ending and if you are reading the series definitely read it. I will read the next one, and hope it is about Avendale. I usually love Ms. Heath’s books, so this was a bit of a disappointment.

I'll be honest, I usually avoid love stories based on the amnesia trope. I struggle with the idea of a person falling in love while trying to recover their identity. Despite my reservations, I was willing to suspend my disbelief for Peter Sykes' story because Surrender to the Devil (Scoundrels of St. James Book 3) - the novel in which he was adopted by the Duke and Duchess of Greystone - is my favorite book by Ms. Heath.

Unfortunately, I had trouble with the heroine. Even after learning of the abuse she had suffered at the hands of her uncle, I couldn't bring myself to empathize with her; her vile conduct toward the hero at the beginning of the story turned me completely off and I couldn't get past it. Moreover, I didn't buy the radical transformation of her character after she lost her memory. The final scene when she accepts his marriage proposal would have been sweet, had I not been so set against her.

Drake's behavior didn't endear him to me either. He took his own self-esteem issues out on a helpless woman, whose life he saved, for - I hope - reasons other than petty revenge. I could understand his desire to teach her a lesson, but I felt that he had gone too far with the charade.

So, after struggling for a week and skimming pages, I finally gave up and skipped to the final few chapters and epilogue. As always, the diary entries were touching, but the best part of the story was the scene between Drake and Greystone when all the men of the family gathered at the club before the opening ball. I'll read it again just for that, and maybe the rest of the story will grow on me.

The synopsis is okay up to the "great betrayal" that had Ophelia in a tizzy, and I don't know why Drake was called a rogue. He ran an exclusive gaming club, was honest, worked very long hours, and behaved as a gentleman. What's roguish about that? It looks good in the title and it's really no big deal, so I'll move on.

Heath writes an entertaining story, but the characterizations in this one had me scratching my head. Too unexplained, too pat. We're led to concentrate heavily on Ophelia's behavior, bad and good, but are given very little background or insight into the emotional upheaval she had experienced. For such serious matters, there was far too little development by the author. Too, why did Drake fall madly in love after a very few days of her pleasant behavior and after her long-standing rotten treatment of him? I would have been suspicious, wouldn't you? And I realize there was a subliminal attraction between them, but that's no explanation. I'm attracted to a gallon of ice cream, but I know it would do me no good. There were important issues and circumstances in this novel that were given superficial treatment IMHO. Too many unanswered questions.

The author went way over the top portraying Ophelia in all her haughtiness. There is no way on earth that she, a guest in his adoptive parents' home, would imperiously say to him, "Boy, fetch me some champagne!" This was beyond ridiculous. Ophelia was so overwhelmingly nasty, to the point of cruelty, to Drake, to her servants, to everybody, that I don't see her doing an about-face when she lost her memory. She'd apparently had terrible experiences that shaped her awful behavior, and that's just it. How can such a miraculous transformation occur in a short period of time following all those dreadful years?

"Once More My Darling Rogue" is a good story, about how important self esteem is in our lives and how it does not matter how much we have or how well loved we are, if we do not like ourselves our life can be bleak. I have to tell you I did not like Lady Ophelia, she was mean, petty and selfish. The way she treated Drake was terrible. Drake, I liked, he had his issues but it was understandable because of his parents and his early childhood. Lady Ophelia did not deserve Drake, but Phee was an other story, she was kind, smart assertive and funny and she made Drake happy. Ok Drake was no saint he did lie to Lady Ophelia and told her she was his housekeeper but the truth is I could not blame him. You do realize how things are not always what they seem and you start wondering what could have happened to make her not want to remember. I won't say more because I don't want to give anything away. I do want to say that I loved how his adoptive family loved him unconditionally. I did like the story, and I'm hoping the next book will be the Duke of Avendale story.
