A Most Devilish Rogue

A Most Devilish Rogue by Ashlyn Macnamara

$7.99 Preorder Amazon

Years ago, when Isabelle Mears was still a young miss too infatuated to know better, she surrendered her innocence to a dishonorable man. Though ruined and cast out from society, she has worked hard to shelter her illegitimate son, Jack. Having sworn off men in her quiet but dignified life, Isabelle is unprepared for the deep longing that rips through her when a handsome stranger rescues her rambunctious six-year-old from the pounding ocean surf.

George Upperton is a man in trouble with debts, women, and a meddling family. He is, by all accounts, the last gentleman on earth Isabelle should be drawn to. But loneliness is a hard mistress, and caution gives way to desire . . . even though Isabelle is convinced that happiness can’t be found in the arms of such a devilish rogue. Only when Jack is kidnapped does Isabelle discover the true depth of George’s devotion—and how far a good man will go to fight for the woman whose love is all that matters.

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I love a good historical romance. My problem with this one is it's just boring. We have a man (not a titled man, but a supposed to be wealthy man, who's going broke), finds out his mistress is pregnant, he needs money. We have a woman who was turned from by the ton because she got knocked up. Her son gets taken. Then, the next few chapters are all about them, should they sleep together, shouldn't they, is this proper, is it not, and really lacking in the story that was originally started. I don't feel Mr. Upperton is the definition of a "Rogue" and certainly not Devilish. He was nothing compared to the most Rakes and Rogues you read about. I found him quite boring. I like the ending, the twisting, but that's about all there was to it. I had to trudge through the whole book when all I wanted to do was put it down.
