A Good Rogue is Hard to Find by Kelly Bowen
Date Read: August 2015
Genre: Historical, Romance
HE THOUGHT HE'D SEEN IT ALL . . .
The rogue's life has been good to William Somerhall: He has his fortune, his racehorses, and his freedom. Then he moves in with his mother. It seems the eccentric Dowager Duchess of Worth has been barely skirting social disaster-assisted by one Miss Jenna Hughes, who is far too bright and beautiful to be wasting her youth as a paid companion. Now home to keep his mother from ruin, William intends to learn what's afoot by keeping his friends close-and the tempting Miss Hughes closer still.
. . . UNTIL HE MEETS HER
He's tall, dark, and damnably intelligent-unfortunately for Jenna. She and the duchess are in the "redistribution business," taking from the rich and giving to the poor, and it's going great - until he shows up. But even as William plots to make an honest woman out of her, Jenna will use all her wiles to reveal just how bad a rogue he can be . . .

First Thought when Finished: A Good Rogue is Hard to Find by Kelly Bowen was a little lighter than the first book but still held an emotional wallop of a punch!
Quick Thoughts: Kelly Bowen landed on my must have/must recommend list with this book. If you follow me on twitter or FB–you have heard me recommend her to anyone who will listen. She proved with Jenna and Will (and the Duchess) that she can mix comedy, suspense, and emotion while keeping the historical context of the novel on point. I had a bit more fun with this one because that was who Jenna and Will were as people. That being said the intensity of the situation coupled with more coming out about the Duchess still made the emotional side of this story rich. So without giving anything away I will just leave you with this: you will come out of this wishing there was a spin-off for the staff 🙂
*sigh* In other words if you love historical romances then just get these already cause I am giving nothing away!

During her non-reading time you can find her hanging with her rescue furr children named after book characters: Lizzie a beautiful cattle dog mix (Pound Pup), Cinder a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Pound Pup), and Minerva a beautiful Shep/Pitt mix (Foster Fail). Gathering with friends and family, attending conventions, watching movies/tv shows, rooting for the 49rs, and crocheting.
