4 of 5 stars
The one thing former prizefighter James MacGregor wants and strives toward is to be a gentleman and accepted by the ton. He wants to marry a wealthy young woman of the ton to further that dream. When he blackmails the shy Eleanor Townsend into introducing him to Society, he gets more than he bargains for when he begins to want Eleanor more than just a friend.
I was a little thrown by the title of this story because James is definitely not a Rogue and there was no conquest. I loved that the book was based in Edinburgh and not the ballrooms of London. That was a refreshing change. The friendship that developed between James and Eleanor after a not so auspicious start was a delight to see. Their conversations were witty and surprising, especially on Eleanor's part. Most young women would never be so honest in talking with a man. The story is short and I wish their growing attraction between them had been more fleshed out. All in all, this is enjoyable book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
