    Fantastic Read!

    I Kissed A Rogue, book three in the Covent Garden Cubs series, by Shana Galen was a fantastic read! Kidnapped and witnessing a murder in the Seven Dials section of London does not bode well for Lady Lillian-Anne Lennox’s well being as she becomes the next murder target. Not even being the daughter of a Duke is protection against the cutthroat dealings of those out to see her demise. An unfinished past with the only person who can protect her, Sir Brook Derring, takes this work on a voyage of self discovery, passion and forgiveness that will leave readers breathless. The powerful connection between the hero and heroine in this story flourished as entertaining banter and raw revelations filled the pages. Shana Galen's expert knowledge of Regency London and expressive writing will hold her audience enthralled and as they fall in love with her characters! *I received this ARC from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.* *While part of a series this work can be read as a stand alone.*

    Nice Historical Romance

    This was a rather nice historical romance. This is the third book in the Covent Garden Cubs series and I have read them all but each one of the books can easily be read as a stand alone novel. I would have to say that this book was my least favorite in the series but only by a slight margin. I thought the story was a bit silly at times but I was kind of in the mood for silly so it worked out for me. Lady Lila has been kidnapped. Her father, a Duke, goes to Brook for help in finding Lila before it is too late. Brook is successful in finding Lila quickly but soon realizes that she may still be in danger since she was targeted for the kidnapping and witnessed another crime while she was being held captive. As a way to keep her safe, Brook agrees to marry Lila but plans an annulment as soon as her captors are found. Lila seems rather spoiled at the start of the story. As the daughter of a Duke, she has led a privileged life with servants to do things for her. When she was younger and first encountered Brook, she wasn't very nice and liked to play with other people's emotions. Brook has not forgiven Lila for crushing him when he proposed to her years ago but Lila has changed. Some of her spoiled behavior really seems to come from the fact that this is how her life has always been. She doesn't know how to do some tasks simply because someone else has always been there to do them for her so she hasn't had the chance to learn. Brook had a hard time letting go of his anger towards Lila. Even though he has changed in the years since he proposed, he doesn't seem to believe that Lila could have changed just as much even though it seems to be obvious. When they flee to the country in order to hide from Lila's kidnapper, they have the chance to get to know the people that they have become since their initial meeting. I liked Brook and Lila as a couple. Brook is a genuinely nice man who wants to make sure that Lila is kept safe. Lila is ready for a bit of independence from her father and has learned a bit of compassion from caring for her mother prior to her death. They do have some great chemistry and there are more than a few sexy times in the story to keep the heat up. The overall plot may have been a bit far fetched but it was still a lot of fun. I did find myself thinking that certain parts of the story were rather silly and overdone but it didn't affect my enjoyment of the story. The suspenseful part of the story is really pretty minor and rather easily resolved. This story is really about Brook and Lila falling for each other. I would recommend this book to fans of historical romance. I have read several books by Shana Galen and have enjoyed all of them so far. I can't wait to read more of her work. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Sourcebooks Casablanca via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.

    Superb!

    This brilliant instalment of the Covent Garden Cubs, is one of the most solid stories Shana Galen has ever written. Ms. Galen’s famous wit and sexiness prevail throughout but this time, the author has elected to give us a better look at how class differences rules Regency England. Lady Lillian-Anne Lennox – Lila – was such a snob, that she had few friends, and several enemies. She is kidnapped by someone who knows who she is, she escapes but gets herself in even more trouble. Unfortunately for her, the only man who can keep her safe is one whom she had spurned several years before: Sir Brook Derring, an investigator hired by her father. Lila and Brooke don’t get along particularly well, in spite of being attracted to each other, mostly because of Lila’s prejudices. Will she ever learn? Shana Galen is at her very best in I KISSED A ROGUE! Lila and Brooke are fabulous, very complex characters; the class differences between them are, at times, startling, yet totally believable. Lila could have been hard to like, she is quite haughty, but Ms. Galen made her come off clearly as a product of her class; her behaviour did was not a product of a cold heart. There is even more action in I KISSED A ROGUE, if memory serves, than in the other books from this series. I was taken in from the first sentence, we jump right into the action and it just about never lets up, apart from a sweet and spicy interlude in the middle; there are plot twists galore, surprises good and bad, and many secrets and mysteries. I loved how characters from the previous books make brief but important appearances. If hadn’t already been a fan of Shana Galen’s before I KISSED A ROGUE, I would be now! Just super! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    I think I was hoping for something different

    I think I was hoping for something different out of this one. Or maybe I was hoping for something different out of the characters. I really like Sir Brook as a secondary character in the previous book, but I thought he was arrogant jerk in this one. I realize there’s some extremely bad blood between him and Lila, and her family, but I didn’t even like him until nearly the end. Lila’s not much better. At least Susanna’s “poor me” attitude in the previous book came with a touch of whimsy that made it fun to read. Lila might as well be a poor copy of Marvin the depressed robot from the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy series – except I enjoyed reading Marvin. The opening scene had me completely hooked, but then the plot fumbled. The mystery, while engaging at first, took way to long to get to the point and I was past ready to see it over and done with. If this book had been significantly shorter I would have enjoyed it more.

    A Wonderful Historical Romance

    I Kissed a Rogue by Shana Galen is a wonderful Historical Romance. Once again Shana Galen has given us a superb novel. The chemistry between Lila and Brook is irresistible. My inability to put this book down was undeniable.. When the Duke's daughter Lila is kidnapped, her father turns to the man you had once proposed to her to locate his daughter. What follows is a series of both fortunate as well as unfortunate events. Find out what happens when the two find themselves entangled in one another's lives. I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
