A Rogue of One’s Own – Published 2020
A huge thank you to Netgalley and Berkley Publishing for a free copy of the ebook in exchange for an honest review!
“A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution – but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans…and her heart.
Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.
Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.
As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war…” – Goodreads
Wow. First of all, I’ve really come to love series in which the MC shifts. As much as I loved Annabelle and Sebastian in book one, I absolutely adore Lucie and Tristan’s story even more.
Holy steamboat. 🔥 🔥 🔥! If you’re looking for a steamy and also interesting romance, I highly recommend this one (but know that it’s the second in the series).
Romance, passion, feminism, historical fiction, and beautiful dialogue. I’m here for it!
I think Dunmore is a master of her craft, able to put together a plot that keeps you interested and wanting even more when it’s over, an intense dynamic between characters, building passion, and time period relevant political activism.
5 stars for me!
