Lady Imogen Moore hasn’t had an easy time of it since she made her Come Out three Seasons ago. With her betrothed, a powerful duke breaking it off to wed her sister, she’s become the tons favorite piece of gossip. Never again wanting to experience the pain of a broken heart, she’s resolved to make a match with a polite, respectable gentleman. The last thing she wants is another reckless rogue.
Lord Alex Edgerton has a problem. His brother, tired of Alex’s carousing has charged him with chaperoning their remaining, unwed sister about ton events. Shopping? No, thank you. Attending the theatre? He’d rather be at Forbidden Pleasures with a scantily clad beauty upon his lap. The task of chaperone becomes even more of a bother when his sister drags along her dearest friend, Lady Imogen to social functions. The last thing he wants in his life is a young, innocent English miss.
Except, as Alex and Imogen are thrown together, passions flare and Alex comes to find he not only wants Imogen in his bed, but also in his heart. Yet now he must convince Imogen to risk all, on the heart of a rogue.

Caldwell's newest novel in the Dukes' Series is a very good story. The characters, Alex and Imogen, are very well defined in their feelings about each other and their perceptions of themselves. My only regret is that the plot could have involved more interaction between them and others. It seemed almost more of a short story than a novel. Thus, it made me feel cheated not getting to know them better on a n In-depth basis. Aside from that, it is another very good novel! I can't wait to read her next novel coming out in May 2015!!
The Love of a Rogue
Just completed another Christi Caldwell novel set in the early 19th century. As usually it is written with a lot of wit and verbal banter between the two lead characters! It is a much read novel for those who love historical romance.
I have read and retread this story so much! The character depth in it is amazing! Multidimensional characters are my favorites, and this story has so many! The relationship/interaction between the siblings? I have bookmarked some of those because they're just wonderfully written.
I so enjoy all your stories, but I think this is at the tip-top of my list.
I'm so glad our Marquis got his story told, but now, I'm absolutely starved for Chloe's &/or Primly's story(ies). Chloe deserves to be shown that not all men are like her father. And Primly? He was so sweet! I'd love to find out more about his background and if he finds someone who looks past his stammer to see him.
(I'm gonna be honest I look for their names every time I see you have a new book coming out.)
Keep it up! (Even if it's not Chloe or Primly.) I enjoy all your books -- many time over.
