Typical Historic Romance novel...
I've read a ton of Historical Romance and this is no different than any other I've read, but nevertheless, still a fun read when you don't want to use too much of the noggin. There were a few unexpected twists and turns in this one making it NOT so predictable, which I enjoyed. I thought the main character, Jack, was described as nothing less than an absolute hottie, which being a romance novel, made it more than okay with me. As all novels in this genre, this one was typical in the fact that it had all the elements of love, deception, a little bit of mystery and most of all... a happy ending!Was this review helpful?

The Best Hero
From page one of the prologue of The Rogue Report, I knew this hero was something different. The kind of hero that comes alive and makes you smile and keeps you turning pages. Jack William Mansfield. The Earl of Rutledge. Handsome, more than charming, a fighter, a gambler, and he lies through his teeth. He¿s one of the scandalous ne¿er-do-wells written about in Lady Julia Corwyn¿s Rogue Report. Julia was turned out of society as a fallen woman, because she has a son and no husband. She devotes her life to running a charity school for the illegitimate children of servants, and she also devotes her life to The Rogue Report she publishes every month. In it, she exposes all of society¿s scoundrels and their exploits ¿ in hopes that she can help young women avoid these scandalous gentlemen. Her report of his wild party is what causes Jack¿s wealthy fiancé to dump him, and he¿s out for revenge. Using a false identity, he signs on as a teacher at Julia¿s school until he can prove that she¿s the author of the scandal sheet and expose her. And if exacting his revenge involves seducing the uptight headmistress, so be it. We all know Jack will lose his heart to Julia, but from page one I also knew this charmer had a long way to go. What will he do with a classroom full of math students? What will he do when Julia and her son are in danger? How can he possibly make up for his scoundrel ways, and all his lies, and win Julia¿s heart in return? You¿ll have to read The Rogue Report by Barbara Dawson Smith to find out. Barbara is a New York Times bestselling author, and The Rogue Report is a suspenseful, fun, and fast-paced read. Enjoy!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
