#Review: THE RIGHT KIND OF ROGUE by Valerie Bowman

3 of 5 stars

Viscount Hart Highgate is a rogue who loves his bachelor ways. Saved from the parson's trap years before before, he despises manipulative women above all else. Now 29, he has finally decided it was time for him to settle down and take a wife, although he goes about it like he's walking to the guillotine. When his sister asks him to help her friend Meg Timmons garner the interest of a gentleman, he reluctantly agrees. He's known Meg his entire life--she is shy, kind and the ton's biggest wallflower. A little attention from Hart and his friends will definitely help her chances to attract a husband.

I've enjoyed Ms. Bowman's previous books and this one was sweet, although not my favorite. There was a lot of misunderstandings on both Hart's and Meg's parts. At one point, I just wanted Meg to finally shout out that she's loved him since she was 16, but then there wouldn't be a story. I thought Hart's character was a bit over the top when he thinks Meg deceived him, especially since he's known her for years. He didn't stop to think things may not be what they seemed. He was quite cruel at one point and it made him unlikeable for me. As with all of Ms. Bowman's books, true love finally shines through. A definite read for fans of Regency romance.

I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
