Some people grow up wanting to be lion tamers or astronauts. I've always wanted to be a writer. One day, during a slow afternoon at my day job, I thought: What would I write? Inspiration struck . . . an earl who fell in love with a spy!
And thus Lady Rogue was born.
Christine "Kit" Brantley is masquerading as a boy because her mission is to spy on Alexander Cale, the Earl of Everton. It doesn't take long for Alex to see through her disguise. Who would mistake this enchanting, albeit cheeky, chit for a lad? Alex is determined to discover the real reason Kit is in London, but as he's dragged into one escapade after another, he finds himself succumbing to her charm and spirit.
I love this book, and I love the new package. In my mind it's a depiction of the first time Kit puts on a ball gown, and the way Alex Cale feels when he first sees her as a lady . . .
Ah, me, now I'm getting sentimental.
P.S. Oh, and Lady Rogue also marks the debut of Mr. Francis Henning, who's made an appearance in every historical I've written since.
Great story telling!
I love intrigue, and this book has intrigue in spades. What makes it really different is the strong story line. It holds and grips the reader throughout. Both kit and alex are well drawn. The only weakness is perhaps the action sequences. They lack punch. But on the whole definitely a book to read.
I reread this one often
This is one of the few books I go back to on a regular basis. Most books I read once and I'm done. This one, however, I love to read over and over. The story is wonderful and has just the right balance of romance and intrigue. I wish the author would right a sequel. I love this couple and their dynamics.
