4.0 out of 5 stars Very good regency romance by a fresh talent Nov. 7 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
In 1812 England, Chelsea Bellamy receives a ransom note informing her that an unknown assailant has kidnapped her brother and is demanding 500 pounds. However, the amount is way out of reach for Chelsea. Desperate, she decides she has two options: marriage with the despicable Squire or turning to a trade like that of a highwayman.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sexual Content: Rated R Nov. 2 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
First time author Hope Tarr has penned a sensational debut novel packed full of humor, wit, intrigue, and sexual tension galore. Set in Regency England, A Rogue's Pleasure is hard to set down once you pick it up. Chelsea Bellamy's younger brother Robert has been kidnapped and is being held for ransom at the sum of five hundred pounds. Orphaned over a year ago, Chelsea has no one to turn to and must therefore come up with a way to raise the needed funds herself. When all of her avenues for acquiring money are exhausted and desperation finally kicks in, she turns to her trusted servant Jack - a retired highwayman - to teach her his former trade. All is going according to plan until Chelsea and Jack decide to hold up a carriage that contains none other than the handsome and notorious rake Viscount Montrose and his fiancée Olivia.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Historical Romance with a basis in reality!! Jan. 12 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Hope Tarr has changed my views on historical romance. In the past I have often avoided purchase of such books for light reading. Often, the plot line involved abusive behavior towards weak,insipid women. This trend really turned me off of that type of reading.
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!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Romp Dec 10 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ordinarily, I don't read romance novels, but I read this one and enjoyed it immensely: it is something of a romp. Chelsea is a high-spirited but impoverished young woman. When her brother, who did much to deplete the meager remains of the family fortune, is kidnapped, she is forced to raise money for his ransom. She turns to a series of not-very-well-thought-out crimes that involve her ever more deeply with Anthony, a handsome, but world-weary Viscount.
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.
