"This Regency-era romance is all about second chances, making amends, and giving love a chance" - Publishers Weekly
"This endearing story of second chances, pride and prejudice, and two people clearly meant for each other is a delight. The action, adventure, sensuality and surprising twist at the end are all icing on a perfectly lovely cake.

I found Ms. Galen’s books years ago, and I have been a fan ever since. I can always count on her to give me a story with plenty of adventure and intrigue. When I received a request from the publisher to read I Kissed a Rogue in exchange for an honest review, I immediately accepted. This is a lovely Regency romp.
When the Duke of Lennox hires Sir Brook Derring to find his kidnapped daughter, he is not enthused. After all, she is the very woman who broke his heart seven years ago. Can he rescue Lady Lillian-Anne without losing his heart all over again when he finds the attraction is as intense if not stronger than it was years before?
Lady Lillian-Anne knows she treated Brook badly when he courted her as a young debutante right out of the school. She let her status and the admiration gentlemen showered on her to go to her head. Now, she has to depend on the man she hurt. Will she accept her punishment from Brook and turn what was antagonism into a lasting love?
I enjoyed the story a great deal, and the pacing is fast, making this a quick read. Ms. Galen starts this one with an exciting action scene. I always enjoy a book where I am dropped into a high suspense scene. It certainly sets the tone of the novel. I Kissed a Rogue is very well-written, something I can count on with one of Shana Galen’s books.
Lila is a complex character with quite a bit of depth and flaws. So many times, Regency heroines are perfect, but Lila is not. Granted most of her flaws are in her past, so she needs to redeem herself to Brook. Ms. Galen takes her from a spoiled debutante, careless and thoughtless, to a mature woman ready to be a caring and compassionate individual.Read more ›
She is kidnapped and the man her father sends to find her and save her is Sir Brook Derring, a private investigator and the man who fell in love with her years ago, whom she had rejected. Now she is in big trouble and the only one who can help her is Brook, but can he put aside his feelings of dislike and disdain and rescue Lila. Of course he does and in the process of trying to protect her he comes to know a different Lila, and she is not anything like the unfeeling, cruel young lady who had laughed in his face and broke his heart. Can he protect her without falling for her again, the first time it had taken years to forget her, but now she is a different woman and he is beginning to fall for her again.
This is a wonderful story of how the events in a person's life can change them and that there is always that second chance to find love and happiness.
Shana is a gifted writer who knows how capture your attention from the first word to the last. Her love scenes are sensual and beautiful, the action exciting and her characters are wonderfully complex, inviting and smart.
Now I have to go back and read the other three books in this series.
Brook is a second son who has become an investigator. He is so successful in his work, the King has made him Sir Brook Derring. In his past he was in love with Lila. He was treated shabbily by both Lila and her father, a Duke. His heart was broken and he has never forgiven either one of them. When Lila goes missing, the Duke asks Brook to find her and return her home. Brook does the honorable thing and begins to search for Lila and he is able to rescue her.
When it is realized that Lila is in continuing danger, the Duke forces a quick marriage in order to make Brook responsible for keeping her safe. He will need every bit of his skill to keep her safe. After an attempt on her life at a place thought to be safe, Lila and Brook go to a “cottage” in order to hide until the villains are captured. The cottage turns out to be nearly uninhabitable.
At this point in the story, we go from an adventure to a very erotic story of how to pleasure a virgin. Brook is a very talented gentleman. Though I am not adverse to a story with sex in it, at times I think this was overdone.
Ms Galen is a very talented author. She develops a plot which makes the reader want to turn pages in order to see what happens next. This book is no exception. There is a mystery.Read more ›

Of the three I like this one best. The peevious rantings, bickering, name calling, and stomping in the rain. Sir Brook has his hands full literally with Lady Lila. Read morePublished 1 month ago by Lady Moon
