Once More my Darling Rogue
The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James # 2
by Lorraine Heath
From New York Times bestselling author Lorraine Heath, comes the second book in a brand new series, The Scandalous Gentlemen of St. James, featuring three eligible bachelors...and the scoundrels that reside within each.
Born to the street but raised within the aristocracy, Drake Darling can't escape his sordid beginnings. Not when Lady Ophelia Lyttleton snubs him at every turn, a constant reminder he's not truly one of them. But after rescuing her from a mysterious drowning, he realizes she doesn't remember who she is. With plans to bring her to heel, he insists she's his housekeeper—never expecting to fall for the charming beauty.
While Ophelia might not recall her life before Drake, she has little doubt she belongs with him. The desire she feels for her dark, brooding employer can't be denied, regardless of consequences. So when Ophelia's memory returns, she is devastated by the depth of his betrayal. Now Drake must risk everything to prove she can trust this rogue with her heart once more.
I call Overboard!
Hotness factor: Phee and Drake…
Have you ever watched the 1987 movie Overboard? Spoiled Heiress Goldie Hawn fell off her yacht and lost her memory. The contractor she has been tormenting, Kurt Russell, seeks his revenge by bringing back to his home and telling her that she is his wife. As much as I like this movie, I believe that’s kidnapping, so kids please do don’t this at home.
Now, take this interesting plot/felony, set it in Victorian England with more twist and less shoulder pads and you have Once More, My Darling Rogue.
Lady Ophelia started off as this repressed and rude woman but by the end of the book we understood her behaviour more. Drake was likeable from the beginning. He saved her from drowning for god sake! So he played a little joke and basically kidnapped a lady for a couple of weeks and told her that she was his maid… It’s all right, she didn’t press charges. She fell in love instead.
I enjoyed the story. It made for a nice afternoon read. There’s just something about these rogues that makes you want to come back for more. Can’t wait for Avendale’s book!
