    Hilarious with a dose of reality

    William Sommerhall, Duke of Worth, enjoys the good life. He’s handsome, rich, fun-loving and indulges his passion for breeding racehorses. Quite concerned with the gossip about his mother’s eccentricities, he pays her a visit and when he witnesses firsthand the pandemonium caused by this behavior, he decides to move in with her to put her life to rights and redeem her reputation. For both the Dowager Duchess of Worth and her companion, Jenna Hughes, this decision comes at the worst time as the Duke’s presence is sure to throw a wrench in their business. Both women have been playing Robin Hood at the races for a while, something that the upstanding Duke of Worth will not condone. William is seen to be a leader in horse-racing circles and is very vocal about ridding the sport of all dishonor. A GOOD ROGUE IS HARD TO FIND starts out on a very hilarious note and had me laughing so hard I was in tears. However, the lighthearted tone takes a more serious turn as the details of the schemes involving Jenna and the Dowager Duchess are revealed. Underneath the glamorous lifestyles of the ton is the dishonorable behavior of failing or refusing to pay debts owed to the tradesmen and the lack of legal options available to the tradesmen to recoup their monies. Jenna has been directly affected by this behavior and resolved to see such wrongs righted. Unfortunately, without a voice in the lawmaking process, alternative ways are devised leading to the scheme to recover, recoup and retrieve. The methods devised by the cohorts in this scheme to keep the Duke from finding it out were very funny and finding out that the Duchess’s eccentricities were a carefully cultivated cover was too much! I enjoyed the dialogue and had a really good laugh at the antics of the characters. However, some of the plot seems improbable and requires a huge suspension of disbelief. For me, some of the things Jenna was involved in brushed up against the illegal side and it made the romance with William seem a bit hard to believe, especially as he is such a straight and honorable man. In spite of that, A GOOD ROGUE IS HARD TO FIND was still a funny and enjoyable read. Source: I received this book for free from the Publisher in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

    ....

    The Duchess almost steals the show from Jenna and Will with her antics! Will has finally found the woman he's been looking for the past year where he least expects it - his mother's house as her companion. But things are not what they seem, and Jenna has a hard time trying to keep him from discovering what they are up to. Unfortunately, the more time the spend together, the harder it is for both of them to resist the attraction between them. Even though the plot is a bit far fetched, the writing is great with plenty of humor to go with the heavier subject of poverty. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to reading the next book about Will's sister and his best friend. ARC via NetGalley
