I didn't really want to read this book in the first place. But as the the first book of a series where I had a high recco for the second book from a discerning HR-lover and reviewer, I felt I'd hamper my enjoyment of book 2 by skipping book one. I'm very nervous of reading series book out of order too.
Well, Connolly has crafted a good story with absolutely no incorrect historical detail, anachronisms, 21st century behavior or attitudes or mishandling/incorrect of forms of address for members of the British peerage. Perhaps this last is because Connolly herself is (gasp) British.
Also, kudos to the author for writing a Georgian romance as well. So many romances are Regencies, I feel the Georgian period gets overlooked.
I really liked the H/h. They were both very likable, especially the H, whom I thought was a darling.
One thing I don't understand is why the word "rogue" was used in the title. There was nothing of the rogue about the H.
I highly recco this title and I will look into reading more of Connolly's HR's.
I love historical fiction generally, and the skillful mix of history and romance that Lynne brings to her series. The added bonus of this being one of my favourite historical eras is also helpful.
I was pleased to see there was another installment in the works as I read this one, and was delighted to read it.
That having been said, I did finish the book so I could write an honest review. I really liked the hero. He was constantly attempting to save/rescue/help the heroine. His intentions toward her were honorable.
I did not feel any connection with the heroine. She made some ridiculous choices that backfired on her. And then she has the audacity to get angry at the hero for the way he and his family went about helping her. I found her attitude to be the height of ingratitude.
I do not care for this author's writing style. There were many times I had to re-read sections so I could figure out who was speaking. The side plot involving rival family and politics was murky, poorly written into the plot and just plain uninteresting
I am giving two stars solely because I really liked the hero. However, I won't be reading anymore books by this author.
