From Booklist

After Darius "Dare" Debenham rescues her from a potentially ruinous late-night adventure, Mara St. Bride vows to return the favor by rescuing Dare. A year after everyone thought he had perished at Waterloo, Dare turns up in England with little memory of what had happened to him and an addiction to opium. As Dare struggles desperately to overcome his dependency, the last thing he thinks he needs is someone like sweet, stubborn Mara meddling in his life, but she is determined to bring joy and light to the man she loves. A resourceful heroine who refuses to settle for anything less than true love and a tortured hero with a scandalous past eventually earn a happily-ever-after in this quietly powerful romance. With her usual beautifully nuanced characters and lyrical writing, RITA Award winner Beverley brings her popular Company of Rogues Regency historical series to a triumphant conclusion. John Charles

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lord Darius Debenham ("Dare"), the tenth and last member of the Company of Rogues, battles drug addiction and falls in love in this rather lackluster end to a vibrant series. Dare was severely wounded at Waterloo, and afterwards was captured by a French spy who forced him into opium dependency. He was rescued about a year ago and is now physically recovered, but is undergoing an agonizing struggle to free himself from addiction. Once an outgoing and popular young man, there is now a darkness and fragility about him, and his temper is often on edge. He shuns society, not sure if he can hold himself together in public.

Into this half-existence drops the ebullient Lady Mara St. Bride, younger sister of his good friend and fellow rogue, Simon. Dare comes to Mara's rescue one night when she foolishly goes in search of a little fun and almost loses her virtue. Mara decides to rescue Dare in return, whether he wants it or not. She is determined to draw him out of his cloistered existence - and hopefully into her waiting arms.

This story started out well, and the couple was pleasant enough, but it never really took off. There was no buildup to the couple's falling in love, or for that matter much buildup of anything, nor was there anything remarkable to compensate. Mara was likeable, but needed more depth, and Dare should have had more to him considering his eventful past. I liked the opium addict angle and felt this was the most compelling part of the story. Overall, this was a likable couple and an OK read - just not very exciting.

I haven't read any of the other books in this series, but I fully intend to go back and start at the beginning.

As for this book -- Someone complained about the lack of action. For me, that was one of the things I most enjoyed. This is a nice, quiet book. It's about a man and a woman coming to know each other rather than an action plot about spies or whatever. Everything in this story is about the couple. About their relationship and how it grows. And about Dare overcoming his addiction -- and Mara growing up enough to realize that she can't simply jump on a white horse and ride to the rescue, like a character in that book she and Dare plot out together. Real life -- and real love -- is more complicated than that. Messier. Less sure of a Happily Ever After ending.

And no, there weren't any great obstacles put in their way (as someone else complained) -- Dare's addiction included. But so what? Why can't we occasionally have a book that flows gently along instead of rumbling into action or bouncing from problem to problem (or bedroom scene to bedroom scene)? Something different -- something out of the ordinary -- is a refreshing change.

If all the other books in the series are like this, I'm going to be one happy reader!

Lady Mara St. Bride with the telling hair of the more adventuresome St. Bride's was ripe for an adventure. Sneaking out of the house to experience a gaming hell with an older family acquaintance she never thought to later find herself barefoot, wearing nothing but a chemise, and wrapped in a blanket while running through the streets after escaping unwanted amorous attentions. It was providence that the person who came to her rescue was none other than Lord Darius "Dare" Debenham - bosom friend of her brother Simon and a fellow `rogue'.

After the battle of Waterloo, Dare had been presumed dead. Instead he'd been rescued and kept prisoner of sorts by a bitter enemy of the founder of the `Rogues'. Mortally wounded he was initially given laudanum for the pain but was then given larger amounts than needed for a longer period of time to purposely turn him into an addict. Now two years later Dare, once one of the more carefree and boisterous of fellows, fought a tortuous battle to free himself from the `monster within'. The battle would be laden with many pitfalls, least of all rumors that Dare had cowardly fled the battlefield. As Dare fights his addiction, Mara appoints herself to be the one who brings the `old Dare' back into the light, redemption, and land of the living and loving.

*** Jo Beverley has always written edgy historicals and has concluded her "Company of Rogues" with one of the more powerful and compelling reads in a tremendous finale of this exceptional series. The last unmarried rogue, Dare Debenham's battle to overcome his addiction was extremely well done giving the reader an unforgettable experience of the ravages of addiction and the tortuous journey one needed to free oneself from the beast.

disagree with most recent reviews. if you want a 'bodice burner' - this book is not for you. it is a very compelling story about overcoming addiction. OK - so the title should indicate that dare rescued himself, and mara should be older than 18, but the rest wil chime a cord with anyone who has tried to overcome addiction (in my case - cigaretts).

KUDOS to jo beverley - this is a great book.

All of Jo Beverley's "Rogue" series are good books. They are set in the Regency era, but are different then the usual Regency Romances. I enjoyed all of them very much. Ms. Beverley often touchs on human failings and problems and their affect on the characters without losing the story line or leaving you saddened by the end.
