Reviewed by Rachel Book provided by NetGalley for review Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Sigh…sometimes you just need a good rake. I loved how Miss Gray brought in a real rogue for this book. Matson isn’t your typical run of the mill rake. He has a past, but to be completely honest, he was such a gentleman, I couldn’t figure out what people had against him. His character was beautifully written. I was fangirling the minute we went into his POV…and maybe that’s why I had a bit of trouble with this book. It just didn’t seem….realistic? Not that fiction has to be realistic, I mean, I’m not gonna throw stones in a glass house, but, he was so dang likeable and rich and basically everything a high stepping mama would want for their daughter. Regardless of his background, he still had good breeding, so it was strange to me that people somewhat treated him differently. I know the rules of society were strict, but money makes people talk, right? Sophia’s reasons for not liking Matson were understandable. She liked him, lusted for him, possibly wanted to have his babies, but wasn’t willing to take that leap for him because of a promise she made to her dying father. Yet, she continued to put herself in situations where she knew Matson would be present. Their love story didn’t seem rushed, but it did seem like all of a sudden the problem was dealt with and they got their HEA. She rejects him, he pursues her, they have a misunderstanding, and boom we have the epilogue. Again, I don’t mind books like this, but it felt like it was building up to something and then when that something happened and I was super excited…the book was finished. In the end, I guess I feel like I read a nice fluffy book that could have been so much more. Having read Miss Grays’ books before, it’s possible I had my hopes set too high. If you want a lighthearted, smile inducing romance, then this is the book for you.

The last of the Rogue series and I loved it. Matson knew what he wanted and didn't waste any time in having Sophia fall in love with him. Their courtship was different than most love stories in this time frame. I liked the fact that the other brothers came back for an appearance. And in the end Gibson had a good end. Having Twin Aunts and then Matson and Iverson being twins was fun to read about. Years ago I asked my daughter who worked at Barns and Noble to pick up a Patricia Grasso book for me. She brought me Amelia Grey. I decided to read it instead of taking it back. I have read all of her books since. I look forward to her newest and latest book. Loved this Rogues series. I will probably read them all again in at one time instead of reading them as they came out.

Nice but ended very abruptly with insurmountable obstacles of the whole book just leaped over. Odd loss of virginity scene-bad location and didnt think they were there yet.

* I was given this to read from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. I have to say, I love, love, loved Matson & Sophia, the attraction between them was evidentbfrom their first meeting when an orphan boy stole her reticule with her late mothers treasured brooch & Matsons knife. Sophia vowed to her father on his deathbed that she would marry a man with a tittle, which did not seem a problem...until she met Matson Brentwood.  Matson & his twin brother Icerson had just returned to London after years in America, upon their return rumors began to pop up that they were the children of Sir Randolph & an affair he had with their mother. Matson vowed not to allow Sir Randolph to be a part of his life...until he learned the woman he desired most, Sophia, was Sir Randolphs ward.  Passion ignites between Matson & Sophia but her twin aunts, Mae & June are there to ensure she fulfills her vow.  Sophia refuses to go back on her vow, even when Matson says he will go back on his, a devestating revelation the causes Matson to make the decision to return to America rather than watch the woman he loves with someone else. Amelia Grey writes a wonderful story of love that seems unattainable and how a promise made does not always have to be a promise kept and that forgiving oneself can be a better way of keeping a vow made under mitigating circumstances. There are five other books before this in this series, I have them on my to be read list now.

Matson Brentwood has no plans to marry until he is captivated by a goddess with gorgeous red hair and a pair of bright green eyes. Sophia Hart has vowed to her father on his deathbed that she will marry a man with a title. She is a wealthy heiress and determined to keep her oath to her father. Matson, comes from a noble family but he is a younger son and therefore not an exceptable suitor. These two, however, cannot resist their desperate attraction to one another and a mutual seduction begins. This was a delightful tale, rich with detail and enjoyable secondary characters, some from previous books in the series. Amelia Grey is gifted in creating a riveting tapestry of a tale.

I enjoyed this book. It was a nice, light readable book. I liked the fact that it strayed a bit from what I think of as traditional Recency. It seems to me that most illegitimate people in books work hard to fight for what is theirs. Not so much for these characters. This was like a Perils of Pauline story. Heroine Sofia obeys her vow to marry a Title. Will she ruin her life? Or the Hero Matson is untitled and wants nothing to do with his true, natural father. Will he get his girl? This was a quick read for me. I couldn't put it down. There is a twist at the end I didn't see coming. and it MADE the story! Please check out this author as this is the end of a series. I will.
