I love Regency romances. I read them voraciously so I am thrilled to read one that's innovative while still traditional. I loved this story. It had everything you look for in a Regency. Dukes, evil relatives, a horrible grandfather, and more. This is an entertaining read that will not disappoint.
Rose Pearson's new series is off to a strong start with A Rogue's Flower. I enjoyed this book and became totally engrossed in Elsbeth's plight. Elsbeth is a truly strong heroine who's character and values are her underpinning. Lord Radford is a redeemable rogue who just needs to be shown his reflection in a forceful way. The supporting characters all played their parts well, and the period writing put me into the Regency era.
I was hooked on this book on the very first chapter. The main characters are very likeable, and I was going nuts trying to find time to read it to find out what was going to happen with them. This isn't just a historical romance...there is also a bit of a mystery playing out through the entire story, and something happens later to give it a bit of action as a dangerous situation develops, which had me on the edge of my seat needing to know things would turn out okay. As has happened with all of Ms. Pearson's books I've read so far, I was left with a warm fuzzy feeling with how things turned out. So much happiness happening, with quite a few characters even, not just the main couple, so if you need a feel-good book to cheer you up, this will do it.
