    Absolutely smashing!

    THE IRRESISBLE ROGUE is such of wonderful book, I might run out of superlatives! On the eve of her probable engagement to Lord Fitzwell, Lady Daphne Swift receives a box containing a small wooden boat. It is from Captain Rafferty “Rafe” Cavendish, whom she had worked with on a secret mission a year before. Rafe is a spy for the Crown. Rafe has asked Daphne to marry him in order to protect her if something went wrong with their mission; the marriage was supposed to be annulled as soon as their mission was completed, as it had not been consummated. But Rafe hasn’t done anything about it, they’re still married; Daphne is livid. And Rafe has the nerver to ask her to accompany him on another mission; he needs her presence because she speaks Russian. Daphne is adamant she won’t do it, but Rafe makes her an offer she cannot refuse: he will find who killed her brother Donald. Valerie Bowman has crafted an absolutely irresistible book! The prose is luminous and elegant, light and crisp; the dialogues are dazzlingly brilliant and clever, and all this while the author never strays from correct Regency language usage, right down to the proper honorifics, and nicknames, where warranted. The characters are uniformly well-drawn and they all feel genuine. I fell in love with the absolutely delightful Delilah Montbank, Daphne’s 12 year-old cousin, who has French pretensions; she’s not sugary-sweet-cute, but she sounds like a real precocious child. Ms. Bowman’s attention to detail is exceptional, and a feeling of authenticity permeates everything in the book, and the adventure part is just as wonderful. THE IRRESISTIBLE ROGUE is so much fun, so pleasant and enjoyable; it is like a beautiful, sunny spring day. I loved everything from the very first sentences. This is the kind of book I will treasure, and I feel privileged to have read it. I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    Great read

    The Irresistible Rogue by Valerie Bowman is a fantastic read. Ms Bowman has delivered a well written book full of drama, action and sizzle. Daphne and Rafe's story has an amazing array of phenomenal characters. I love the touch of humor through the story. The Irresistible Rogue is book 4 of the Playful Brides series, but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. I enjoyed The Irresistible Rogue and look forward to reading more from Valerie Bowman in the future. I received a copy of this book from NetGalley for review purposes.

    Witty Battle of Wills and Hearts!

    What's not to love about an irreverent sexy hero and a smart and sassy heroine!? Valerie Bowman's fourth book in her Playful Bride series, The Irresistible Rogue, was a witty battle of wills and hearts. Never a dull moment in this appealing and intelligent Regency romp, it was a great escape to a world of ballrooms and espionage with the ultimate discovery of true love. A smile inducing and heartwarming story The Irresistible Rogue should be on every historical romance readers to read list! *I received this ARC via Netgalley.* *While part of a series this book can be read as a stand alone.*

    LOVED IT

    I loved this book about Rafe and Daphne. The story starts with Daphne maybe getting engaged to a the very boring Lord Fitzwell - that is if she can get an annulment to her marriage of convenience to Captain Rafe Cavendish (who she has loved for awhile), they got married so Daphne (who craves adventure) could accompany him on a mission for the war office - as his cabin boy, if she got found out as being a woman then her reputation would not be destroyed as she is already married to him. After the mission Rafe left and Daphne has not seen him since. This is where the fun begins because Rafe knows that Daphne is wanting to get engaged and he does not like her choice of gentleman so Rafe says he will only grant Daphne an annulment if she accompanies him on another mission to find out who killed her brother. Daphne agrees to assist him one more time and leaves to go on his ship. This story keeps you entertained the whole way through, I loved Daphne's cousin Delilah and Aunt Willie, these two characters together cause a lot of mischief and I loved it along with the attraction between Daphne and Rafe and both of them fighting it. This is one of my MUST READS if you like historical romances. I will be putting Valerie Bowman on my authors not to be missed list.
