Title: The Rogue That I Want (Rogues Of Redmere #1)
Author: Samantha Holt
Stars: 4 stars out of 5
I always enjoy a historical romance that has a strong female main character and this story has one of the best. A bluestocking who knows what she wants and proceeds to accomplish her set task. Her unwilling partner is Red, the Earl of Redmere, whom she believes to be a notorious smuggler on the Cornish coast and is unaware of his true status. During their long and hard journey from Cornwall to London, to deliver an ancient relic, love blossoms.
I have given this book a four star rating.
I obtained this book from Amazon in Kindle format.
Thank you Frank for your review
Red never shies away from a challenge.
But when Miss Hannah St. John strides into his life demanding—yes, demanding—he help her, he’s certain she’s more challenge than even he can handle.
Hannah is determined to transport an artifact from France—one that will change everything—even if it means working with a lawless man like Red. Nothing is more important than preserving history.
Not even the touch of a smuggler who inconceivably makes her stomach twist.
When it becomes clear the irritating bluestocking will do anything for this blasted artifact and needs saving from herself, the earl-turned-smuggler steps in.
Carting a cursed stone across the country with a know-it-all woman is not Red’s idea of fun, particularly when their journey runs far from smoothly…so why does he find himself enjoying her company just a little too much?
