Goodreads

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 inherits 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 thread?
Anne Brotherton is sick and tired of being an heiress. She cannot bring herself to marry a fortune hunter. Why can't men like her for her sharp mind and kind hearts rather than her impressive dowry?

She 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.

Audio Rating: 4.00 (not part of the overall rating)

First Thought when Finished: Despite the rather uneven beginning, The Ruin of a Rogue by Miranda Neville ended up having an entertaining last half!

Overall Thoughts: I both loved and disliked Marcus and Anne at different points during the story which is probably why this wasn’t an “out of the ballpark” read for me. Marcus was hard to love in the beginning and I need to fall in love with the leading guy even if he is a Rogue. It was about the time that I started liking Marcus that I started disliking Anne a bit. I didn’t connect with both of them till the last half. I was invested though in seeing how it all turned out. I liked Anne’s spunk and her interest in archaeology, history, and learning. I liked that Marcus wasn’t opposed to this and even got it. I loved the villagers and in the end was really happy when things works out. 

Audio Thoughts

Narrated By Charlotte Anne Dore / Length: 10 hrs and 8 mins

I really loved Charlotte’s narration of this story. I thought she had just enough quirky to make Anne stand out and made Marcus roguish. Her pacing, emotion, and delivery was pretty spot on. I think the narration helped through the parts where I was screaming at the characters.
