A princess in disguise is forced to live with a rogue in order to protect her from danger in this fun, sexy regency romance.
Bow Street agent Sebastien Wolff, Earl of Mowbray, doesn’t believe in love―until a passionate kiss with a beautiful stranger in a brothel forces him to reconsider. When the mysterious woman is linked to an intrigue involving a missing Russian princess, however, Seb realizes her air of innocence was too good to be true.
Princess Anastasia Denisova has been hiding in London as plain ‘Anna Brown’. With a dangerous traitor hot on her trail, her best option is to accept Wolff’s offer of protection―and accommodation―at his gambling hell. But living in such close quarters, and aiding Wolff in his Bow Street cases, fans the flames of their mutual attraction. If Anya’s true identity is revealed, does their romance stand a chance? Could a princess ever marry a rogue?
The Princess and the Rogue by Kate Bateman is an entertaining tale. It is filled with danger, suspense, and romance. This historical novel has it all. The danger begins immediately. From there I was swept up into the characters’ lives and their story. A princess running away from her enemy. As long as she lives, he can’t win. But she will need help staying alive and safe from her dangerous enemy. Greed makes any man dangerous. He’s after her fortune and thinks marrying her will be his goose egg. Also, if married to the princess, the enemy has an extra protection against the wicked things he has done. For a wife can’t testify against her husband. I love this book and the heroes who made my heart race. Their journey is action-packed, thrilling, and sexy. Now, I want to read more by this clever master writer, Kate Bateman. Her characters are unforgettable.
