Review: The Right Kind of Rogue by Valerie Bowman

by MK French

The Right Kind of Rogue is the final book in the "Playful Brides" series, but the others don't necessarily need to be read prior to this one. It certainly helps you understand the relationships between characters mentioned, but this book focuses on Meg Timmons and Viscount Hart Highgate, who is finally ready to settle down and get married.

The Right Kind of Rogue
October 2017; St Martin's Press; 9781250121714
ebook, print (320 pages); regemcy romance
Meg had a crush on him since age sixteen, but their families loathe each other and she has no money to her name at all. Her only hope to catch his attention is to enlist the help of her best friend Sarah, his sister, and Lady Lucy. Sarah doesn't realize Meg hopes to attract Hart, and Lucy is only too willing to play matchmaker and concoct outrageous schemes.

This is a fun Regency romance, and the twist in the story isn't that the hero or heroine are in danger. There's the added incentive of Meg's family leaving England to speed up the timetable, but it isn't the tension that usually arises when one of the pair has to save the other. Instead, the emotional context is the barrier between them, and both have to learn how to communicate with each other to make it work.

As the reader, you know exactly what's going on behind the misunderstanding, making you want to shake the characters to just talk to each other. That's the one downside to that kind of trope keeping people apart, though it's understandable why they do it. That also sets them up for a very dramatic finale, which makes up for the frustration.
