1.0 out of 5 stars What a horrible hero Oct. 10 2009
By Rachel - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the first review I have written, but I couldn't let someone else waste money on such a bad book. The hero is a terrible person who gambles away all of his money, serially sleeps with friends' wives including the friend who offers him a place to stay, and is selfish in every conceivable way. I guess he is an appropraite match for a con artist who steals from kind women with minimal remorse. The only happy ending would have been if both main characters got hit by a passing carriage.

1.0 out of 5 stars Renee Bernard is proving to be a one-good-book wonder Sept. 11 2008
By D. Summerfield - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I was one of those people who thought Renee Bernard's A Lady's Pleasure was one of the best romance novels I had read in a long time. It had two scintillating main characters, a murder subplot and a wonderful ending where the hero swept the heroine off her feet by admitting in the most romantic terms what a cad he had been. It was also full of steamy sex scenes which were truly exciting because I cared about these two people. A Lady's Pleasure has a permanent spot on my keeper shelf. I have re-read it several times.

So I was really looking forward to the next two books in Ms. Bernard's "Mistress" trilogy. I was disappointed after reading book number two, (see my review) but I thought "everyone deserves a bad outing -- maybe she was saving the best for last." Unfortunately that is not the case.

I just finished slogging through A Rogue's Game (Mistress Trilogy). Although not in the really poor taste of Madame's Deception which utilized an unbelievably naive Disneyesque view of brothels and those who work in them, it is still uninspiring, poorly plotted and dull.

The hero and heroine of A Rogue's Game don't even seem to like each other, and the gambling subplot is boring. Even at the end, I do not have a clear idea of why these two might achieve any kind of "happily ever after." And how can the Earl of Westleigh be broke for most of the book, and then suddenly a rich man after one good night at the tables? Nothing about any of this plot is believable or remotely compelling. It's like Renee Barnard was writing on auto-pilot in order to meet a deadline, and never even considered what made her first book so terrific.

I won't go into a plot synopsis. Other reviewers have done that admirably. Just let me say that if you loved A Lady's Pleasure, don't bother buying this book. I think Ms. Bernard is one of those writers who had just one fresh, imaginative book in her. I will no longer be buying her tripe, although if my copy of A Lady's Pleasure wears out, I will replace it.
4.0 out of 5 stars I LIKE IT ALOT!!! July 30 2009

Not as Romantic and Sensual as the first two A Lady's Pleasure and A Madames Deception, but it was well written and hold your interest. Cant wait for Ms. Bernards next book to see what she does!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Rogue's Game Dec 4 2008
By mnix - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Eve Reynolds has perfected her alter ego - that of a wholesome and demure, often shy debutante. This persona is used when, at her uncle's bidding, she is to swindle rich society matrons in games of chance and card games. Women are easier to fool than men and so Eve Reynolds is fairly successful at winning. Not one person suspects her of being anything less than what she comes across as being. Not anyone, that is, until Julian Clay meets her eyes across a crowded card room and see her for what she is - a fellow gambler. When her uncle informs her of his plans to marry her off, Eve allows herself to go along with his plan for reasons only she knows. Julian, however, is not willing to accept those plans and nothing will stop him from claiming the woman that has stolen his heart.

The third book of Renee Bernard's Mistress Trilogy, A Rogue's Game is an entertaining historical romance. Eve was a likeable heroine and I especially enjoyed how she kept Julian on his toes. Just when he would become complacent, she was right there to snap him out of it. I loved how each main character had a secret that they didn't want getting out, especially Julian. He would not be accepted in any societal homes had the true status of his finances been exposed. The sensuality of A Rogue's Game was tamer than what I normally read but still well written and eye catching. A Rogue's Game will take you on a wild card ride of emotions. I thoroughly intend to go back and read the first two installments of this wonderful series!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great steamy book May 14 2008
By A. Wood - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I don't understand the negative reviews for this book, I got it regardless of what was said and I don't regret the purchase. I'm actually looking forward to her other books. It is different than a typical historical romance but I think if you're ready for a change of pace from the good hero/heroine, then you should take a chance with this book. Also, if you like steamy romance, this is great.

I don't necessarily think that Eve Reynolds wanted to portray herself as a bad person but due to the way she was raised and influenced, she didn't know how to better her life. She played along with her uncle who is more than anything using her for her gift of cards to gain money through that route than the honest way. She definitely wanted to change her lifestyle once she got away from her uncle.

As for Julian, he is definitely a bad boy, but he is honest and admits it. Eve helps him to realize he can be a better person, so it was good to see this book unfold and show growth with him. The only negative thing I didn't like was him continuing to stay at his friend's house when he knows his friend's wife is pursuing him to be with her.
