    Sophie Jordan in spectacular form! Fabulous!

    Lady Aurelia fell in love with Max, Viscount Camden, when she was 9. The spring she turned 15, she hoped Max would notice the woman she had now become, but when inadvertently she sees him having sex with a house maid, her heart breaks. Unfortunately for Max, Aurelia is also a very talented artist and her retribution for Max ignoring her is drawing a nasty caricature of Max, which is seen all around London and plagues him for years. Max knows who the culprit is but never utters a word because Aurelia is his best friend Will’s sister, and he wants to protect their family. Throughout the years, Aurelia continues to humiliate Max, who is as dissolute as ever, and their tiff nearly reaches the proportions of an all-out war. Aurelia, approaching spinsterhood, still shuns suitors until she must pick someone. Max and Aurelia see each other too much for their own taste, were it not for Aurelia’s behaviour they could have remained civil to each other, as Max never knew what irked Aurelia. ALL THE WAYS TO RUIN A ROGUE is the extremely complex relationship between the reckless, almost ruthless Aurelia, and the unrepentant rogue that is Max. Ms. Jordan goes far beyond the gloss of the ton, and pens an outstanding character study. Character development is exceptional as we follow Max and Aurelia’s growth, trying to fill the void in their lives. Neither Max nor Aurelia are always pleasant; both are headstrong and independent, Max doesn’t care much whom he hurts while having his fun and Aurelia is bent on revenge, but when two unrelated events force them to take a good look at themselves, and how damaging their behaviour is, the story becomes positively riveting. ALL THE WAYS TO RUIN A ROGUE is a tremendously captivating journey; I was completely involved in the story, which is intense, dramatic, and richly detailed. Ms. Jordan’s prose is more sumptuous than ever, and I believe Sophie Jordan has written her best historical novel yet. ALL THE WAYS TO RUIN A ROGUE is an extraordinary book and should not be missed! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    sassy heroine and stubborn hero

    With flawed but attractive characters, this historical romance is the story of Aurelia who has been in love with her brother's friend Max since she was 9 years old - until catching him dallying with the help at age 15 destroyed her tender feelings for him and set them on a course of antagonism and bitter acrimony. Yet, despite how things have played out, the attraction between them can't be denied - an attraction that could be their saving grace or their ultimate downfall. I quite enjoyed this romance and felt that the time period and elegance were well captured in this friends to enemies to lovers story. They both experience difficulties on the path to true love - Aurelia with the disillusionment of learning her hero has feet of clay and Max with his fear of long term commitment leading to the very thing that sets them on the path of acrimony and censure. Despite their flaws, they are both interesting and intriguing characters. Aurelia is a daring and strong woman, willing to speak her mind though she finds herself in the unenviable position of needing to secure a marriage before ending up banished to Scotland. Max is a flirt, a playboy and an everyman's friend, so long as he doesn't have to care too deeply for anyone. The sexual tension between them runs high and leads to some steamy scenes even as neither wants to acknowledge how deep their feelings for each other go. There are the usual misunderstandings, tension and societal pressures of the time period and it all made for a highly enjoyable story. With a sweet happy ending, this one was an entertaining read from start to finish. 4 stars.

    A beautiful love story!

    Lady Aurelia has loved her brother’s friend Max, Viscount of Camden since the tender age of nine. He is handsome, kind and always affectionate with her. But that love was torn to shreds when 15-year-old Aurelia sees Max with another woman. Aurelia was devastated that Max wasn’t the kindhearted man of her dreams, but really a rogue. She pours all of her pain and anger into her art, drawing a very unflattering caricature of Max which inadvertently goes public. After Max discovers it is his friend Aurelia behind the drawing that causes him such ridicule, he returns her hate in equal measure. Over the years there is no love lost between these two as their feud intensifies. Until one day Aurelia pushes Max too far and he punishes her with a kiss that turns their worlds upside down. Max and Aurelia are fantastic together. Even when they are at odds, you can still feel their attraction simmering just beneath the surface. Their witty banter is laugh-out-loud hilarious and the conflict between them makes it seem impossible that they will ever get their happily ever after. All the Ways to Ruin a Rouge is book two in The Debutante Files, but can be read as a stand-alone. Sophie Jordan will charm readers with her masterful storytelling, unforgettable characters and of course, a beautiful romance. Jordan’s rich and vivid prose brings this story to life. You don’t have to be a fan of historical romance to fall in love with this book.
