    A Regency bad boy!

    If you like sexy bad boys, Regency-style, ONE ROGUE AT A TIME is the book for you! Bramwell Hallowsby is in Hull, on his way to Scotland, to claim his pay for a job he’s on, which is protecting peers. “Bram” is not quite a peer: being the illegitimate son of a duke, he is confined to the sidelines of the Ton; he is some sort of mercenary, and he looks at the world of which he is almost part with a very cynical eye. While at an inn, he spots a beautiful woman in blue who, among other things, sells healing potions: Miss Maybelle Ballenger. After a few incidents, Maybelle tells Bram that she is a lady, in spite of her broad northern accent and lack of polish, but she must find proof of her legitimacy before she can wed the vicar’s son, who seems to her the perfect husband for a country miss. Maybelle helped Bram at the inn, and as compensation, she asks him to teach her how to behave like the lady she knows she is, then she will go to London to look for the relatives who don’t know of her existence. ONE ROGUE AT A TIME was the first book I had ever read by Ms. Lee, and it was not quite what I expected. I liked Bram and Maybelle as friends, but struggled with Bram’s attitude towards Maybelle. While he’s obvious no angel and he’s very much sexually attracted to her, and I felt whatever motivations supposedly justified his intentions towards Maybelle, especially early on, were petty and irrational. While both Maybelle and Bram are complex and very interesting characters, the romance didn’t work for me. I liked her, but I didn’t care for him, especially after a catastrophic “mishap”, where he hides a most damaging truth from Maybelle, and which later on she nonchalantly brushes off as if it were nothing. However, ONE ROGUE AT A TIME is very well-written, and what I found most interesting was the encyclopaedic knowledge and understanding of the author regarding the era. The sociological aspects are enthralling and feel so realistic, it made me thankful that I hadn’t lived in those times! The story would have worked for me, had it remained mostly about the adventures, which were captivating. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    My first read by Jade Lee, but not my last!

    I received a copy of this book from eBook Discovery in exchange for my honest review. This is the first novel I've read by Jade Lee, but it certainly won't be my last. Their was a lot of comical moments in this story but there was underlying tragedy in both the hero and the heroine's lives. The main characters, Bram and Maybelle, were both survivors in their own right; sometimes what they had to survive was the incompetence and out right stupidity of the people in their daily lives. I would strongly advise every historical romance lover to give ths one a try. You won't regret it. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and will definitely read it again!

    My Fair Lady has scored a regency makeover.

    My Fair Lady has scored a regency makeover. Jade Lee has smartly put her own spin on a literary classic. Her innovation and skill has netted a story that has subtle similarities that have a modern feel but all the poise and mystery of regency era romance. I received an ARC of One Rogue at a Time in exchange for an honest review. Behind the polished demeanor Bramwell is well of secrets. Charm and etiquette are the tools he used to hide the pain of past hurts and hidden talents he has picked up over the years. Maybelle is his equal in that she is searching for acceptance just like her, she just pursues it differently. What I liked about this novel is that there is always something new to discover around the corner. I found One Rogue at a time to be a great way to past the time and would recommend to any fan of classic historical romance.
