Chasity Somers is married and widowed within three days. Picking up the pieces of her broken heart, she rescues her late husband¿s young cousins from a workhouse. She is determined to start her own orphanage by accepting her husband¿s inheritance in Sunnyledge. She didn¿t anticipate anything would stand in her way of providing a home for her charges. Then unexpectedly Reed Gilbride shows up, claiming that he is the lost heir of Sunnyledge. Reed Gilbride had never known the love of his real parents, having been raised by a couple who were not related and who never let him forget it. When he receives word that he¿s the missing heir to Sunnyledge, it intrigues him to find a piece of his lost heritage. He is surprised to find a houseful of children and one beautifu,l strong-willed woman who claims she is the rightful owner. He has three months to prove her wrong. Who will win out in the end, and at what cost? Annette Blair is one of my all time favorite authors. Her writing skill is in a league all by itself. An Unmistakable Rogue is the third book in one of the best series I¿ve read in a decade. This series is a definite must have for any historical romance fan who crave a book that leaves a lasting impression. Very Highly Recommend.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

The third in Ms. Blair's Rogues Club Series, UNMISTAKABLE may be her best yet, and that's saying something! With a beginning that will pull you into the story with a vengeance, and won't let go till the last incredible page, I soon fell in love with the whole abandoned lot of them--both hero and heroine, Chastity Somers and Reed Gilbride, and the children whose ploys to get them together are admirable and laughable. I hurt when they hurt, laughed with them, rejoiced when they did, cried like a fool. Reed and Chastity were both brought to the Sunnyledge Estate by an anonymous, vengeful note. Reed is looking for his heritage but finds Chastity and her brats in residence, and planning to remain. Reed dislikes children--he raised a dozen or so step-siblings--and Chastity, having been raised alone, adores children and intends to start a home for orphans in the house Reed believes is his. But Chastity doesn't know how to care for the children and Reed does. They strike a bargain. He'll teach her to care for the children and they'll search the house together for the proof of his birth. That way, he can't invent proof, and she can't destroy any. If he finds what he seeks, she and her brats will leave, if he doesn't, Sunnyledge will be hers. You want them both to have it, which is impossible, more impossible than anyone realizes at first. The twists and turns in the plot are a surprise and a treat, and like in one of her early works, THEE, I LOVE, Ms Blair hold us spellbound to the end, at which point, you want to start again right from the beginning. Treat yourself. Read An Unmistakable Rogue today. Read all Ms Blairs Books! Again and again. You'll come away with joy and hope in your heart every time.Was this review helpful?

Married and then suddenly widowed, Chastity Somers intended to claim her bridegroom's inheritance as the long-lost St. Yves, Earl of Barrington, heir. She planned to use the estate, Sunnyledge, to run a children's home. She 'rescued' her husband's four relatives (3 nephews and 1 niece) from a workhouse prison and dashed off to see the estate's solicitor, Mr. Sonnett. She must wait three months to claim the estate. If the other heir did not show up with proof of his identity by then, the estate would belong to Chastity! ........... Reed Gilbride believed himself to be the other long-lost heir. He believed the proof he needed was somewhere within Sunnyledge. With only a short time to locate proof he became the caretaker. The instant he found what he needed, the tempting lady and her brigand-brats would leave! But even though Reed went looking for his heritage, he never expected that he would find salvation! ............... ***** As usual, Annette Blair has written an intense romance that will leave her readers begging for more! The villainess is one that is obviously insane and extremely wicked. I loved to hate the character, which proves the author's wonderful talent! The children and their antics kept me laughing while they easily melted Reed's icy heart. ........... I cannot recommend this book highly enough. Excellent! *****Was this review helpful?
