    Outstanding Debut

    Any Rogue Will Do by Bethany Bennett, book one in her Misfits of Mayfair series, is a second chance story between Lady Charlotte “Lottie” Wentworth and Ethan, Viscount Amesbury. The season Lottie came out was a disaster. She attempted to play the obedient lady the ton expected but all it got her was society’s ridicule and scorn. Ethan was rebuffed when he asked her father if he could call on Lottie; afterward, drunk, he called her a paper-doll princess. It had been a few years and now she is determined to take charge of her future. Lottie returns to London in search of an in name only husband. When an unwanted suitor refuses to accept Lottie’s no for an answer and attempts to manipulate her into an engagement, she creates a plan; asking Ethan to be her fake fiancé. Ethan has always regretted ruining Lady Charlotte’s reputation and makes sure to apologize to her; asking not just her forgiveness but for a clean slate to start over. So when Lottie asks him, Ethan has no qualms playing her fiancé. As these two spend time together, they not only set the sheet aflame, but create fireworks with the chemistry and electricity they share. I really liked these two characters and was amazed at the strength and perseverance they possessed in dealing with adversity. I also admired that they emulated kindness and understanding towards those in lower positions than themselves. Ms. Bennett wrote an emotional, second chance story that is not to be missed. She provided a tale rich with sizzling chemistry, intelligent banter, and the amazing characters who assisted Lottie and Ethan in discovering their love for each other and the possibility of a future together. I highly recommend Any Rogue Will Do to other readers and look forward to the next book in the series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

    Splendid second-chance Regency romance!

    I loved the way both Ethan and Lottie had shown such tremendous personal growth and maturity. Seven years earlier, neither one had much to contribute to their swiftly doomed romance, but now there's a strong attraction felt between two people who have learned a few things about life. I was instantly charmed by the delightful writing style that balanced razor-sharp emotional insights with humor-laden banter and even a few bawdy locker-room wisecracks. The story moves at a brisk pace with surprising twists and unexpected villainy. There's just a touch of the Beauty and the Beast theme, brilliantly executed throughout the entire story. Ethan and Lottie were a beautifully-matched couple. I really loved how the author developed these characters into fully complex, believable people who were equals in every way. Theirs is a fierce love, one that makes them stronger together than they ever were apart. The inner struggles they had to overcome were almost insurmountable, while the outside threat against them was handled with unexpected restraint and resolved in a way that saw justice served with a huge helping of humor on the side. This is the first book I've read by this author, and it won't be the last. It's a wonderful gem and I highly recommend it for all romance lovers. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Entertaining book

    This was an entertaining book. It was told from multiple points of view, as a mysterious disappearance unfolds. It kept me guessing about what was really going on. I enjoyed this book.

    Wonderful Regency Debut!

    This was a great historical romance featuring so many of my favorite tropes. There was some fake engagement, enemies to friends to lovers, and even some second chance romance thrown in. The writing was really engaging and I loved the secondary characters, like Cal and Lady Agatha, just as much as Ethan and Lottie. Lottie was a wonderfully strong and fierce heroine and I loved how steadfast and all in Ethan was. I really enjoyed watching the sparks fly between them as they began to see each other in a new light. They challenged and brought out the best (and sometimes worst) in each other. Their chemistry was scorching hot and I have one word for you - balcony. As much as I loved Ethan and Lottie though, they did frustrate me towards the end because of their inability to communicate and all the misunderstandings. The pacing of the book also stalled at certain points for me and I felt the drama at the end was a bit contrived and unnecessary. I appreciated that it was solved almost as quickly as it began however, and that it showcased again how resourceful, intelligent, and determined Lottie was. The epilogue brought things full circle and left my heart happy. I'm really looking forward to Cal's story next. *I voluntarily read an advance review copy of this book*

    3.5 STARS

    Lady Charlotte ‘Lottie’ Wentworth is determined to be in charge of her own future, so when an unwanted suitor, James Montague, tries to manipulate her into an engagement, she has a plan. He can't claim to be her fiancé if she's engaged to someone else even if it means asking for help from the last man she would ever marry―Lord Amesbury, Ethan Ridley. Better off known as MacBrute, he regrets ruining Lady Charlotte's reputation years prior during a previous courtship, so he goes along with her charade is the least he can do to clean the slate and perhaps earn her forgiveness, and if he's lucky, her love too. ‘Any Rogue Will Do’ was a positive start to a series I am sure to love. A strong-willed heroine and a hero looking for redemption, the enemies turned lovers (brief) historical romance didn’t exactly have a strong plot and was a tad bit slow on the second half but the steaminess and the chemistry between the characters was engaging enough to peak my interest. All in all, it was good and I look forward to Calvin and hopefully Conner's story in the near future.
