    Not my typical review, but this is not my usual read. However, Hope Tarr wins me over with A Rogue's Pleasure. A Rogue's Pleasure is, and I blush when I happily admit, a newly found guilty pleasure. I've already added several more of Hope Tarr's books to my to-be-read list. When the mood strikes, I can't wait to curl up with a chunk of chocolate, a warm blanket and surrender to the historical world the author paints. I quite enjoyed the dirty side of London. The characters are engaging and I fell head over heels for Lord Grenville. If you have a soft spot for 19th century rakes, you'll lust after him too. It was a fast paced read that had me flipping pages late into the night. I was having so much fun reading that I hated to put it down. It was entertaining, enjoyable, and delightfully romantic. Viscount Grenville is the ultimate historical bad boy of London and if I had a time machine I'd jump in it and likely throw myself on his doorstep. The love scenes were delicious and hung on the edge of erotic without spilling over into vulgarity. The language was romantic, seductive and sensual without being dirty. However, for the more prudish it might be too much and if you're longing for chaste traditional sexual restraint sometimes found in the historical genre, this is not your book. What I adored about Tarr's writing was that she mingles historical adventure and period setting with romantic sensuality. For me, this is a winning and entertaining combination. I felt very attached to Chelsea and Grenville and invested in their love story. I can't wait to read another! Besides, who can resist the new smoking cover!

    Exciting Regency romance

    In 1812 England, Chelsea Bellamy receives a ransom note informing her that an unknown assailant has kidnapped her brother and is demanding 500 pounds. However, the amount is way out of reach for Chelsea. Desperate, she decides she has two options: marriage with the despicable Squire or turning to a trade like that of a highwayman. <P>She chooses the latter, donning the garb of a highwayman. Surprisingly, she starts out reasonably successful until she robs Viscount Anthony Grenville. Anthony realizes the thief in disguise is a woman he dubs Lady Robin. When he finally captures her, she imprisons his heart. However, there remain issues between them such as his fiancee and her abducted sibling. <P>Regency romance readers will fully enjoy Hope Tarr¿s debut novel A ROGUE¿S PLEASURE. The story line is filled with action and amusing dialogue between the lead characters to lighten the tale. The intrepid Chelsea obviously takes an extreme path that requires acceptance by the audience. Anthony seems at first as the bored aristocrat common in this sub-genre, but he too has more sustenance to him. Readers will hope that Ms. Tarr will quickly follow up with her next story. <P>Harriet Klausner
