When the new earl inherits, poor relation Miss Rebecca Bond must wed immediately or be out on her ear. The only man she’s ever loved is summoned to hear the will—but he already rejected her so soundly that they haven’t spoken in years. Yet who better than a rakish Viscount to teach her how to snare a gentleman who appreciates her charms?
Daniel Goodenham, Lord North Barrows, regrets nothing more than the lost friendship with the one woman who treated him like a man, not a title. Fate has given him the perfect pretext to win her forgiveness—even if it means having to match-make her to someone else. But now that she’s back in his life, he’ll do anything to convince her to choose him instead…

My Rating: 4 stars
In some ways, you could call Romancing the Rogue the ultimate second chance romance. A chance for Daniel to make up for his reaction, and his actions years ago toward Rebecca. For Rebecca, it’s a chance to either make Daniel burn at what he missed or forgive him and let him win her heart all over again. In the end there really sin’t much choice where love is concerned – but it is an interesting journey to get to the happy ever after part.
Romancing the Rogue is a quick, fun and entertaining story of love gone wrong years earlier, friendships broken and how two people can rekindle what never died out – their love for each other. Giving your trust back to the man who broke your heart is never easy, but Rebecca has never stopped loving Daniel. Since her circumstances have changed even further, now might finally be the right time for them to act on their feelings and get on with their lives together.
If you’re looking for a quick romance with a punch, then this one is for you. Daniel and Rebecca have a history now it’s time to decide if they have a future. I enjoyed my time with this couple and I believe any Regency Romance reader would have fun with it.
