She chooses the latter, donning the garb of a highwayman. Surprisingly, she starts out reasonably successful until she robs Viscount Anthony Grenville. Anthony realizes the thief in disguise is a woman he dubs Lady Robin. When he finally captures her, she imprisons his heart. However, there remain issues between them such as his fiancee and her abducted sibling.
Regency romance readers will fully enjoy Hope Tarr's debut novel A ROGUE'S PLEASURE. The story line is filled with action and amusing dialogue between the lead characters to lighten the tale. The intrepid Chelsea obviously takes an extreme path that requires acceptance by the audience. Anthony seems at first as the bored aristocrat common in this sub-genre, but he too has more sustenance to him. Readers will hope that Ms. Tarr will quickly follow up with her next story.
Anthony Grenville, Viscount Montrose, can scarcely believe what's happening to him. Not only is he suffering the embarrassment of being robbed in front of his fiancée, but the perpetrators in question consist of a slight girl and a one-eyed elderly man with scrunched shoulders and a noticeably dragging leg. Still, he can't help but to be amused...and intrigued. He has no choice but to let the girl and her elderly companion go on their way for now, but oddly enough, he hopes to see her again. So when he catches the girl relieving his townhouse of its silver a few days later and forces her to confess all, he can do no less than to help Chelsea get her brother back. Besides, it's the perfect way to keep Chelsea close to him, which is precisely where he most wants her.
A Rogue's Pleasure contains an intriguing plot and superb protagonists, but its the budding relationship and sexual tension between the lead characters that will hold you spellbound.Read more ›
However, when Hope wrote her novel I was fortunate and privileged enough to have met and befriended her. Therefore, of course, I read it as soon as my copy arrived! Once I started I couldn't put it down. I was teased by my employees as I finished the novel one night at work. Anyone, that has a romantic bone in their body will be captivated by Chelsea and Anthony's story. Those who are seeking more substance to the characters will be pleased and surprised by Hope's creation of two very "real" people.
Congratulations Hope on a wonderful first novel. Can't wait to read the next one!
The subplot involving Chelsea's brother and Anthony's fiance is particularly well done. It surprised and captivated me. I won't tell you aboutit -- you may want to be surprised yourself.
