Review: A Rogue of One’s Own

A Rogue of One's Own (A League of Extraordinary Women, #2)

Synopsis:

A lady must have money and an army of her own if she is to win a revolution – but first, she must pit her wits against the wiles of an irresistible rogue bent on wrecking her plans…and her heart.

Lady Lucie is fuming. She and her band of Oxford suffragists have finally scraped together enough capital to control one of London’s major publishing houses, with one purpose: to use it in a coup against Parliament. But who could have predicted that the one person standing between her and success is her old nemesis, Lord Ballentine? Or that he would be willing to hand over the reins for an outrageous price—a night in her bed.

Lucie tempts Tristan like no other woman, burning him up with her fierceness and determination every time they clash. But as their battle of wills and words fans the flames of long-smouldering devotion, the silver-tongued seducer runs the risk of becoming caught in his own snare.

As Lucie tries to out-manoeuvre Tristan in the boardroom and the bedchamber, she soon discovers there’s truth in what the poets say: all is fair in love and war… 

Rating: 5-stars

Review:

A Rogue of One’s Own by Evie Dunmore is one of the most entertaining historical romance novels I have read this summer. Inside, awaits a stubborn high society lady who never plans to marry. Marrying means giving up one’s own freedom especially, if they’re a woman. Lucie wants her freedom and rights for women. That was her plan until one particular rogue keeps stalking her. Not stalking so much as keeps appearing when she least wants him to appear. Surprises and plot twists are plenty in this novel. I was entertained from the start. This was one rollercoaster ride, I didn’t want to end. The rogue was just as fascinating as the heroine. I love strong characters, but I really enjoyed how the woman kept pushing the man out of her life only to fall for him. The whole enemies to lovers trope was done well. Although, the rogue never considered the lady as his enemy. Overall, this was one splendid historical romance novel. I cannot wait to read the next book!
