Why is this getting 5 stars? It is a good plot but poorly written. It is very disorganized, jumping to new scenes without developing the background or characters. It is a very frustrating read.

It was a love / hate book! I liked the main characters. At times you just wanted to slap him..lol
I wished the story could have been a longer book with more details about the other character. I would recommend the book to my friends.

Jameson's foray into historical romance writing is an excellent first attempt.
Set in c.1820 New Orleans, the story follows tavern wench Camille's forced marriage - by her nasty uncle - to wealthy Nicholas Branton.
At the Branton estate. Camille befriends Branton's sister Genevieve and meets his daughters from his first marriage. Now a widower, Branton doesn't spend time with his daughters and Camille tries to befriend the girls with Genevieve's help.
Twisted through this first part of the book are Camille's unsettled feelings about Branton, her husband in name only as he promised her he would not take her to bed, and her desire to have a permanent home.
The second half of the book picks up in action and is the best part. Who is Josephine Huxley and how might she change Camille's life? And will Nicholas and Camille ever realize their feelings for each other? And what about that nasty uncle?
This reviewer, who prefers mysteries and biographies, found this a page turner. A short, quick read (only 134 pages), Jameson's entry into this genre is a good start.

Kat Martin, New York Times best-selling author with over 11 million books in print, says this about Kelly Jameson's To Tame a Rogue: "Sizzling with sexual tension, filled with passion, an old-fashioned romance. Fast-paced and fun to read."Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
