ARC Review of The Rogue by Katharine Ashe




Another amazing addition to her repertoire.  The reason I love her writing so much is that she puts so much into the process.  Her research is astoundingly accurate, her plots are complex and exciting, her characters have such depth and her writing is so poetic {ie “Not removing his eyes from her, the stranger unfolded himself from the chair with predatorial grace.  He moved like a hunter, lean and powerful and aware”)  I just have to go back and read it again.  Her writing sings to me. 

I have been waiting for Constance’s and Sterling’s story, and it does not disappoint.  From the Prologue to the Epilogue you can see that they are meant to be together.  Constance is Sparrow, a member of The Falcon Club and Sterling is a recurring character from “I Loved A Rogue”.  Sterling is a strong, independent man who makes his own way in the world with his sword and even though he show a calm exterior to the world,  it seems his self-control disappears around Constance. Constance also shows an unruffled exterior but inside she is full of fear and insecurities that she hides from everyone.

There is a murderer on the loose and woman disappearing and Constance is willing to sacrifice herself on the altar of Marriage to get close to the Devil she thinks is responsible.  Along comes Sterling and both their plans for the future are thrown into disarray.  This story has it all….Murder, Kidnapping, a couple of really nasty villains, but most of all it is a love story for the ages. 

Katharine is truly a gifted writer and I enjoy her books tremendously.  If you have not read any of her books you are missing out on one of the best in the Historical Romance Genre.

Received a Complimentary copy of this book by the Publisher for an honest review.
