Book Review-The Rogue: Rogues & Gentlemen Book 1-Emma V. Leech

Monday, February 5, 2018

I love historical romances that have very strong and willful heroines, Henrietta is definitely that--and add in a pirate or two--I'm in heaven! Henri refuses to marry the man that her father made a deal with. She was to be essentially bartered to pay off his (her father's debt). She has an unexpected encounter with a man while shopping--she helps him to escape the authorities. As he is rushing off he drops a letter. After reading it she has an idea--she will blackmail the pirate!! Well that didn't go exactly as planned----but not exactly as I thought it would--nor will you!! There are several twists of fate in this one.

Oh how I enjoyed reading this book and I think you will too!!!!!

About the Book: (from Amazon)


Along the wild and untamed coast of Cornwall, smuggling is not only a way of life, but a means of survival.

Henrietta Morton knows well to look the other way when the free trading 'gentlemen' are at work. Yet when a notorious pirate, known as The Rogue, bursts in on her in the village shop, she takes things one step further.

Bewitched by a pair of wicked blue eyes, in a moment of insanity she hides the handsome fugitive from the local Militia. Her reward is a kiss that she just cannot forget. But in his haste to escape with his life, her pirate drops a letter, inadvertently giving Henri incriminating information about the man she just helped free.

When her father gives her hand in marriage to a wealthy and villainous nobleman in return for the payment of his debts, Henri becomes desperate.

Blackmailing a pirate may be her only hope for freedom.

This does sound like a very good book. I love a little intrigue in my historical romances. This sounds a bit earlier in time than what I have been reading which makes me a bit more curios.

I really don’t read romance books. I don’t do the damsel in distress thing. But I do like historical background. I am really into mysteries and science fiction. Variety is the spice of life!
