From Publisher’s Site:

Miss Chelsea Bellamy is desperate

Her beloved brother is being held for ransom! Impoverished after the deaths of her parents, Chelsea doesn’t have five shillings, never mind the five hundred pounds the kidnappers are demanding. With no one to
turn to, she resorts to highway robbery to raise the sum.

Lord Anthony Grenville is bored

Viscount Montrose’s coach is overtaken by a highwayman—who turns out to be no man at all! Anthony hasn’t been this intrigued by anything, or anyone, since his return from the war. And when he catches the flame-haired thief breaking into his London house to further fill her coffers, he comes up with a plan to rescue her brother—and resolves to seduce her into his bed!

Their passion is mutual

Chelsea accepts Anthony’s aid, but she’ll never become his mistress—even if the thought of it fills her veins with liquid fire…

My Review:

A Rouge’s Pleasure is a historical romance that takes place in England in the fall of 1812. Hope Tarr has done a wonderful job of bringing the location and the era to life. I felt as if I was there. I found myself cheering for Chelsea during her robberies, urging her to accept Anthony’s help, and to eventually declare her love for the rogue. I enjoyed the characters of this book. The story was well written and the situations were very believable. I found the plot a tad predictable but that did not bother me in the least. This was a very delightful book and will be placed with the books I grab when I need a good diversion.

I am giving A Rouge’s Pleasure a 4 horse shoe rating!
