Overview

Desire, danger, intrigue, and steamy seduction unite a sexy spymaster and an intrepid bluestocking as Stefanie Sloane’s luscious new series continues.

Possessed of a brilliant mind and a love for puzzles, Dashiell Matthews, Viscount Carrington, is a crucial member of the elite Young Corinthians spy league. Assuming the façade of an addle-brained Adonis, he hunts for a notorious London murderer known as the Bishop. When fate causes him to cross paths with Miss Elena Barnes, Dash discovers an enigma that will prove delightfully intoxicating to unravel: a voluptuous beauty as intelligent as she is fearless.

Only the lure of a collection of rare books bequeathed to her family by Dash’s late father could tempt Elena from her cozy rural life to the crush and vanity of London. But if Elena finds his lordship to be the most impossibly beautiful man she’s ever seen, he also seems to be the stupidest. Which made her body’s shameless response to his masterful seduction all the more unfathomable. Yet when she discovers Dash’s mission to track the dangerous Bishop, she willingly risks everything—her trust, her heart, her very life—to join him.

A childhood spent lost in the pages of countless novels led Stefanie to college, where she majored in English. No one was more surprised than Stefanie when she actually put her degree to use and landed a job in Amazon.com’s editorial department.

For Dashiell Matthews, Viscout Carrington, deception is a way of life.The role Dash plays in the clandestine spy agency known as The Young Corinthians easily fools society, but not Miss Elena Barnes. The intelligent beauty's uncanny ability to see through his ruse of diminished intelligence jeopardizes not only his cat and mouse game with an elusive killer called The Bishop, but threatens to steal his heart, as well. A life outside the sparking realm of London's ton suits Elena Barnes just fine until her father inherits a highly coveted collection of books. She enters the noxious social whirl intent upon acquiring the tomes and returning to the country posthaste, but the extremely handsome and intriguing Dash compromises her plans. When she discovers the truth behind his vapid facade, Elena gambles her life to help the man who valiantly stole her heart. THE SAINT WHO STOLE MY HEART is the latest addition to Stefanie Sloane's Regency Rogues Series. The chemistry between Dash and Elena make for one-passion packed tale of danger, intrigue, and romance. A true must-read for all Regency romance fans!

Reviewed by: Sarah L Book provided by: Netgalley Review originally posted at Romancing the Book Review: The Saint Who Stole My Heart is book 4 in Stefanie Sloane’s Regency Rogues series. I was a bit hesitant to pick this up since I prefer to read a series in order and I have not read the first 3 books. No worries though. This book does very well as a standalone. The main character Dash is an interesting gentleman. Even though he has a face and body that would make a woman swoon, he portrays himself as simple-minded and deliberately masks his supreme intelligence as part of his efforts to safe guard his secret of being a Young Corinthian spy. Elena on the other hand makes no secret of her intelligence and shows insecurity with not recognizing that she is in fact beautiful on both the inside and outside. While I enjoyed getting to know both Dash and Elena, the romance portion of the story was very slow with most of their courtship apparently conducted “behind the scenes”. In fact, the entire book in general moved a bit on the slow side. I found myself easily distracted and had a hard time staying focused. Some of the scenes seemed to start and stop abruptly and immediately shifted focus to something or someone else which resulted in a lot of backtracking to reorient myself. For example, it is late at night and Elena cannot sleep so she goes wandering and ends up in the gallery where she stumbles onto Dash. Among other things, they are discussing why she cannot sleep and then the story immediately cuts to Elena, Dash and Lady Mowbray at the breakfast table. Overall, the plot and characters held a lot of great promise, but with the abrupt scene changes and feeling like some of the scenes were lacking key information, it was just too much work to stay focused and involved.

The characters and premise is good, could have used some more build up of them together. Felt like there were pieces missing. Just starting to get to know each other and then theyre making love in the carriage after he embarrasses her. Was she even a virgin? No talk of her being suspicious of his disguise. And her transformation was pretty quick-a new dress, pull out a few hairpins and voila-she's now a beauty. Quick ending-they were married and she was pregnant, and she had set up another chapter of the Halcyon Society. I give up on SSloane.

I really loved the characters, the plot was okay seemed "jumpy" at times. I see potential in Ms. Sloane's books, she could get 5 stars with more time spent on love story development and transitioning between scenes.

One of my favorite genres of romance is Historical. It gives you a sense of how back in those times one "dated" or in their words courted. Especially in Europe society, particularly in London. It seems then that there were more rules then then there are now. Makes you wonder if we in the 21st century would even be able to handle that time of lifestyle. Now you add a little danger into a love story and you have the perfect mix. Stefanie did just that in her 4th installment of the Regency Rogues....I will admit, I have yet to read the first 3 but believe me I will be picking up those books very soon, and also looking forward to continuing with this series.

THE SAINT WHO STOLE MY HEART by Stefanie Sloane is an exciting Regency historical romance. Book #4 in the "Regency Rogues" series,but can be read as a stand alone.
