Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"His shoulders were broad and powerful, his flowing white shirt half open, giving her a provocative glimpse of a smooth, bronzed, splendidly muscled chest." Like his model, Ryder Remington spends much of his time slightly deshabille in this historical set in Charleston, S.C., and Regency England. The rest of the time Ryder, the estranged son of the Duke of Mansfield, spends wenching--most recently pursuing a comely barmaid in a tavern near the docks in Charleston, S.C. When he presses his attentions too far, he quickly finds out that Natalie Desmond isn't a barmaid but a British heiress who came to America to help her cousin and his mother, Natalie's Aunt Love, run a textile factory. When smuggled British cloth threatened the factory's future, Aunt Love began an investigation and promptly disappeared, leaving Natalie to don her disguise and to try to find clues through her seafaring customers. Ryder, intrigued by her plight and determined to seduce her, comes to her aid accompanying Natalie back to England where they trace the smugglers, find Aunt Love, mend ties with their respective families and come to terms with their own passion. In this second romance to bear Fabio's name ( Pirate ), descriptions are good, as is dialogue, although there tends to be too much of it with awkward amounts of the plot conveyed in conversation. Often bawdy, there is something enjoyably self-mocking about the over-the-top take on standard characters--when not wantoning in Ryder's arms, Natalie teaches a Bible study class and reads Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations .

From AudioFile

Historical settings give this romance period glamour. Dukes, maidens, chivalry, dreams-come-true and happy endings are part of the fantasies. Vastly popular in print, this romance on audio will entertain the same audience. The narrator delivers long sighs, declarations of love, descriptions of gallantry and seduction with gusto. Fabio as author but not narrator may disappoint listeners who anticipate his voice. Music adds to the steamy atmosphere. The quality of the production is good, and there's plenty of dramatic effect added to the high drama and passion. R.F.W.

This is one romance definitely not bound for Blockbuster! The characters were so unbelievable and the dialouge so poorly written it was hard to make it from page to page. The plot in itself was corny and I actually groaned aloud when introduced to the character Aunt LOVE! REALLY we are romantic not ditsy. As usual, noone can deny Fabio's sex scenes were steamier than ever, but I'm not sure one can make it that far. Also, great sex scenes can hardly make up for bad plot. I love Fabio's pictures, I really do, but a reader worth their salt must agree that a great body on one page can't make up for 400 pages of a dull and flat book. For great historical romance try Virginia Henley and the almost impossible to get Roberta Gellis. For great contemporary romance keep in mind Susan Elizabeth Phillips.

The character Ryder Remington is a prime example of a classical rogue! He's dashing, strong and annoyingly smooth! He is definitely a dream away from orgasmic!

I had bought this audiobook together with Fabio's Pirate and I didn't think I would like Rogue because I was a little disappointed with Pirate because I didn't like the heroine but I listened to the Rogue audiobook anyway and I was very pleasantly surprised! I wouldn't call it a masterpiece of classic literature but it was good and I enjoyed it and I liked the characters Natalie and Ryder and I enjoyed reading about their adventures and their romance.
