Publisher Description

The League of Rogues takes what they want—but have they taken on too much?

For too long Miss Emily Parr has been subject to the whims of her indebted uncle and the lecherous advances of his repulsive business partner. Her plan to be done with dominating men forever is simple—find herself a kind husband who will leave her to her books. It seems an easy enough plan, until she is unexpectedly abducted by an incorrigible duke who hides a wounded spirit behind flashing green eyes.

Godric St. Laurent, Duke of Essex, spends countless nights at the club with his four best friends, and relishes the rakish reputation society has branded him with. He has no plans to marry anytime soon—if ever. But when he kidnaps an embezzler’s niece, the difficult debutante’s blend of sweetness and sharp tongue make him desperate for the one thing he swears he never wanted: love. 

Yet as they surrender to passion, danger lurks in Godric’s shadowed past, waiting for him to drop his guard—and rob him of the woman he can’t live without. 

Warning: This novel includes a lady who refuses to stay kidnapped, a devilish duke with a dark past, and an assortment of charming rogues who have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into

Why are there illustrations?!

I like the story well enough, and the main characters were enjoyable. However, why are there illustrations in this book?! They are randomly placed, do not enhance the plot or story, and irritated me as a reader. Since it’s not a book geared towards children I see no reason that these illustrations exist in this book. That is the reason for only three stars. I’m hesitant to pursue this authors works if illustrations will be involved.

Downright creepy!

I tried to like this book, I really did. But I just couldn't get past the creepy premise that these men had abducted this young woman and then she just magically fell for the ringleader. I felt Godric was a one dimensional character with few redeeming qualities. The whole idea that a kidnapping victim would fall for her captor got old and I found that none of the characters were the least bit interesting. One particularly gross detail was that the heroine was ticklish and throughout the story various characters would tickle her until she begged for mercy. Every time there was another tickling scene with a different character, it felt like they were physically assaulting her. Tickling can be tortuous for the recipient and it was way overused throughout the book. Another disturbing aspect was the villain in the story. He didn't just want to possess her as his wife/mistress, he wanted to cruelly demean her and the implication was that if he could, he would hurt her. I couldn't finish the book. None of the characters seemed romantic in any way, they were just overtly sexual and not in the good way! I found it very bizarre for a young woman of that time period to so easily acquiesce to the overtures of five different men at the same time. If I could give the book negative stars, I would...don't bother with this one...it's definitely a waste of time.
