The Ruin of a Rogue

Ts a ramshackle estate Marcus's first and only chance at a respectable life needs funding the kind Anne Brotherton can provide Such a wallflower should be ripe for the picking So why does Marcus feel like he's the one hanging by a threadAnne Brotherton is sick and tired of being an heiress She cannot bring herself to marry a Neville is a little hit and miss for me This was all right but not super compelling I found myself reflecting than once when I was not reading it how tiresomely implausible all these heroines who are so uick to throw away or put in serious peril their good standing with society are At the very least it s not very mature behaviour This heroine is in that category so I didn t really find her all that interesting despite her reported scholarly interests These scholarly interests examining ancient artifacts eventually leading to a dig on the hero s property seemed a bit wallpapery

Fortune hunter Why can't men like her for her sharp mind and kind hearts rather than her impressive dowryShe nearly falls for Marcus's smooth seduction But when Anne realized she's being strung along a lust for payback empowers her like never before Two can play the game of deception The game of love however has its own rules I first read this book as a stand alone and liked it Then I read the first book in the series and re read this There s a number of elements to this book that are intriguing as a stand alone but have significant emotional impact if you ve read the first book and gotten to know characters that appear as secondary characters hereYou can read the summary up at the top so I m not going to bother recounting it here I will say that both Marcus and Anne are complex characters with great depth who grow over the course of the novel and are very believable as are the majority of the secondary characters that surround them In particular Marcus s valet is HILARIOUS and I do hope he turns up in another novelThere was one thing that reuired me to suspend my disbelief a little than was comfortable for me and a bit at the end that I had real difficulty with Spoilers ahead view spoilerI understand that premarital sex is now a reuired trope in historical romances I bought it in The Importance of Being Wicked but I had trouble believing in it here It felt forced and I would have found it believable if they didn t have sex The sex scenes themselves are well done I just found it hard to believe that Anne would go thereMy other challenge was with Marcus s father s death Lord Stuffy s mother shooting Lewis seemed to come out of nowhere And thenMarcus and Thomas dispose of the body and that s that It doesn t seem to have a lot of emotional impact on Marcus and I wanted to see Even if his father was vile Marcus had still looked up to him for a long time And having Marcus kiss Anne passionately immediately after his father died WHILE KNEELING OVER THE CORPSE totally suicked me I felt like perhaps she wrote another ending that didn t uite work and then replaced it I don t know hide spoiler

Charm wit and nerves of steel have helped Marcus Lithgow gamble his way across the Continent But when his heart is at stake all bets are off for this most perfect rogue It's been years since Marcus set foot in England why toy with the ton when he can fleece wealthy fools in Paris and Rome Yet everything changes when he inheri Some titles seem to have little to do with the contents of the book but in the case of Miranda Neville s The Ruin of a Rogue the title not only engages in clever word play but also announces the journey that lies at the heart of this story Ruin says the OED is generally a transitive verb meaning to inflict great and irretrievable damage loss or disaster upon a person or community Even a casual reader of historical romance can list novels in which a male sometimes the villain in the pattern of Jane Austen s Willoughby or Wickham and sometimes the hero in the pattern of Charlotte Bront s Rochester inflicts or attempts to inflict such loss on the heroine or a secondary female character Rakes and rogues who behave in such a manner are staples of romance The romance reader does not expect a scoundrel to be the one who is the object of ruin but this is exactly what happens with Marcus LithgowOf course on one level the ruin referred to in the title is the Roman ruin on the property that Marcus unexpectedly inherits That ruin plays a prominent role in the plot Among other things it serves to entice the heroine to Marcus s estate to increase the intimacy between Marcus and Anne and even to introduce the villain In all these ways the Roman ruin contributes to the destruction of a rogue but the complex ruin is the one that destroys the roguish Marcus and resurrects a nobler man one deserving to be considered a heroSee my full First Look at Heroes and Heartbreakers
