Book Description

Jan. 1 2013 Regency Rogues
NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY RT BOOK REVIEWS

In Stefanie Sloane’s irresistible Regency romance series of spy games and seductive passion, a rogue discovers that his desire for the wrong woman is so very right.

 
A notorious scoundrel, the right Honorable Nicholas Bourne has spent years in the East Indies amassing a fortune through questionable means. Still, his loyalty to his older brother, Langdon, and his childhood friends remains true and trusted. But when Lady Sophia Southwell, the woman promised to Nicholas’s brother, seeks his help on a dangerous mission, he is troubled—and torn. Unable to dissuade her from her quest to find a killer, he vows to keep her safe. This makes his mission the hardest test of his wits, honor, and skill. For Sophia is the secret love of his life.
 
For years, Sophia has planned her daring act of revenge against her mother’s killer. She has painstakingly prepared herself by studying the criminal mind. Now she knows that the moment is right and that Nicholas is the man to help her. But she doesn’t count on the reckless temptation of his rugged sensuality or the captivating intensity in his deep eyes. When desire and emotion intoxicate her as they venture together into the darkest corners of London’s underbelly, Sophia must contend with a yearning even more powerful than the quest for vengeance: the call of love.
 
“Stefanie Sloane’s books will leave you breathless.”—Julia Quinn

Review

'Smart, sensuous, and sparkling with wit...spectacular' Julia Quinn 'Sloane cements her reputation with a powerfully emotional, sexually charged story that will keep you up all night' Romantic Times 'Stefanie Sloane writes utterly delectable and seductive Regency romance!' Teresa Medeiros --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

About the Author

A native Northwesterner with the pale skin to prove it, Stefanie Sloane credits her parents’ eclectic reading habits—not to mention their decision to live in the middle of nowhere—for her love of books. A childhood spent lost in the pages of countless novels led Sloane to college, where she majored in English. No one was more surprised than Sloane when she actually put her degree to use and landed a job in Amazon.com’s editorial department. She spent more than five years reading for a living before retiring to concentrate on her own stories. Stefanie Sloane lives with her family in Seattle.

3.0 out of 5 stars Inconsistent March 26 2013
By Lynne - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
The book started strong and I had hopes for the storyline but it became weak as the book progressed. It wasn't plausible that characters that supposedly loathed each other could fall in love so quickly. Disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars 5th book the Regency Rogues series Jan. 10 2013
By cb - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Sophia has been promised to Nicholas' brother all their lives but Nicholas has secretly loved Sophia. When Sophia asks Nicholas to help her continue with the quest to find her mother's murder he agrees. This was a fun mystery , romance with some great twists. Looking forward to Langdon Bourne, the earl of Stonecliffe book, number six of the Regency Rogues.

If you enjoy this genre I would also suggest; Along Came a Duke: Rhymes With Love ,Blame It on Bath: The Truth About the Duke & Sweet Surrender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Two thumbs up to Stephanie and I've already added this series to the rest of my twenty billion must reads! June 30 2013
By Bitten By Love Reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
As someone who somehow missed the rest of the books in this series, (shame on me I know!) I admit to having a bit of an issue at first picking it up. Its like trying to read the Harry Potter series out of order, all the characters know each other and are familiar and you're the outsider who stumbled in asking around because you have no clue what a muggle is.

However let this not dissuade you first timers from reading this series out of order. All in all I found the book a wonderful display of regency era romance. And the author somehow being psychic and knowing that sometimes a reader just can't get to all the good books fast enough, gives you a wonderful taste of each of the previous characters as well as future characters.

On the character themselves, I was utterly charmed. This was a book (and I'm assuming the series to) where a lot of thought went into who the characters were. Nicholas (our bad boy ;) ) is not the typical handsome regency hero who does right all his life. In fact he is someone we can relate to in modern days (for those 5 guys who read regency romances..ok 6 ). And Sophia is a character who reminds you of the little sister you shake your head at for not realizing that the boy she's been friends with forever is ...[Spoiler alert] actually the love of her life.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what I thought it would be Jan. 8 2013
By Lisa L. Wojcik - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I received this book from the publisher with a request to read it and write a review. I had high hopes for the book, but cannot say that the book fulfilled those hopes. The plot premise was good - a woman searching to find out her mother's murderer - but the execution of the plot did not live up to the story. I found the character dialogues to be fragmented and disjointed at times, scenes changed without seeming to flow, and there was no resolution to the central question of the plot - who ordered Sophia's mother's murder, and why? There needed to be additional insight into the two main characters - Sophia and Nicholas; it didn't feel as if the reader truly gets to know and understand them. I found that the story felt like it was missing pieces. It was not a bad story, just not complete. I will probably try something else written by this author and compare.
3.0 out of 5 stars A Fun and Exciting Journey Sept. 24 2013
By J. Jones - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
The Scoundrel in the book is Nicholas and the Bride is Sophia. They along with Nicholas's brother Langdon have been friends since they were children. Langdon is the oldest and the perfect son. Sophia is Langdon's promised bride. Thus we have the triangle set up.

The story revolves around the murder of Sophia's Mother when all three were children. That murder has not been solved but a new clue has been unearthed. Sophia is determined to follow it and find the killer but she needs help. She turns to Nicholas for help, as Langdon would try to stop her from going into danger.

With this set up the story moves rapidly forward. There is danger, suspense, romance and more danger. I liked both Sophia and Nicholas and often found Langdon clueless. It did make for a good touch to the story.

This is the second book in the Regency Rogues series and the story line here is a continuation from the first book. While more information about the murder is uncovered in The Scoundrel Takes a Bride the mystery is not solved. That is left for the next book. Of course there is a really fun and exciting journey leading up to the HEA for Nicholas and Sophia.
