Overview

Only she could redeem him...

He was tall and dark with eyes as blue as cobalt. In a glittering London ballroom Miss Hester Leighton saw a man who interested her more than anyone she'd met since coming to town. A woman of deep faith, Hester knew she should not keep company with Major Gerrit Hawkes, a jaded, penniless soldier haunted by nightmares of war. But their connection would not be denied.

Hester was the only woman who'd ever made Gerrit ...

Overview

Only she could redeem him...

He was tall and dark with eyes as blue as cobalt. In a glittering London ballroom Miss Hester Leighton saw a man who interested her more than anyone she'd met since coming to town. A woman of deep faith, Hester knew she should not keep company with Major Gerrit Hawkes, a jaded, penniless soldier haunted by nightmares of war. But their connection would not be denied.

Hester was the only woman who'd ever made Gerrit feel truly worthy of love, and he would not lose her. Separated from her by her father--and an ocean--Gerrit must decide whether he will risk his life and his soul to earn a home in Hester's arms forever.

    All four books in this series are winners!

    I really enjoyed all four books in this series. Ruth is an excellent author and I look forward to reading more by her.

    This book follows up with the story of Major Garret Hawkes who played the villian in book II. It shows that all God's children are redemable if we just open our hearts to His call. I've always felt that even Judas Iscariot would have been forgiven if he had just repented so it doesn't surprise or repulse me when a villian such as Major Garret Hawkes turns his life over to Christ and finds happiness.

    I've had some friends that don't care for stories like this because they found the villian to repulsive and had a hard time believing he could/would change. I think stories like this just show us more fully God's redeeming power. And Ruth's ability to tell a good story only adds to the believability.

    Fighting the French has been Major Gerrit Hawkes destiny and despair. Choosing to dispel the nightmares with dissolute living, Gerrit is struck by the innocence and faith of young Hester Leighton, visiting London from the American colonies. Out of her depth in London society, Hester is enamoured by Gerrit Hawkes, convinced of his good character despite reports to the contrary. Yet she is well aware that their friendship cannot develop further with Gerrit's estrangement from God. When Hester returns to America, Gerrit is faced with a choice that will forever change his destiny. If Regency romance is your cup of tea then Ruth Axtell Morren's The Rogue's Redemption is a must read. This story is marked with substantial characters dealing with life struggles from faith, trauma, guilt and forgiveness. From London to Maine Territory, the description of both cultures and societies are detailed and fascinating. Gerrit and Hester are appealing characters whose depth is explored over the course of the story. Gerrit's journey to faith is achieved with sensitivity and authenticity. I will be sure to seek out Ruth's engaging stories in the future.

    Over The Ocean and Back For the Sake of Love

    The Rogue's Redemption is a timeless love story than spans two continents. The author masterfully takes her readers on a journey across the ocean into the London ton and back to post revolution America. On the journey, we meet Hester Leighton and Major Gerrit Hawkes. Hester travels to London for a season in society while her father conducts his logging business. She attends galas, balls and many social events. This beautiful, faith-filled young woman raised in Maine on love and strong Christian values find it difficult understanding London elite culture. While attending one of the balls, she meets Major Gerrit Hawkes. Gerrit was raised into this society but now feels like an outsider. He is familiar with using others to get what he wants, as most in his world do. But Hester's pure innocence intrigues him. Memories of the war and the ways he has hurt many people make him feel unworthy of her affection. Despite societal differences, faith issues, and separate lives, Gerrit and Hester develop a strong friendship that grows into a deep abiding love. When Hester returns to Maine, must their relationship end? Or will true love find ways to overcome the obstacles they face? Reading this book is like a refreshing wind on a spring day. Ruth Axtell Morren has once again written a love story that touches the heart and soul of her readers. Sit back and enjoy!

    If you love romance that¿s truly heart-tugging, you¿ll love this brand new book from Ruth Axtell Morren. I was captured by the sparkling dialogue from the very beginning, between the heroine, American girl, Hester Leighton, on her first trip to Europe, and the handsome Major Gerrit Hawkes, the jaded younger son of nobility. For the first time, Gerrit is seeing his culture and acquaintances through the eyes of the ultra religious, naïve American. He sees himself as well, and doesn¿t like what he sees¿a man guilty of every vice and sin known to man. Even as he vows to stay away from her, to protect her from himself, he is too drawn to her to keep his promise. He must prove he is a gentleman, or stay away from her forever. As the story progressed, and as the two needed each other more and more, this book just got better and better. I think anyone would enjoy getting into the mind of Gerrit Hawkes and following him through his progression from ¿rogue¿ to ¿redeemed.¿ I highly recommend this book.
