In Lord Hugh Davenport’s opinion, women of the ton perpetually hide behind a mask of deception. That’s hard for Lady Ellie Albright to swallow – especially since she’s disguised herself as a stable hand to get back the prized stallion her father sold Hugh to pay a debt. If Hugh learns her true identity she’ll lose the horse and her family will go bankrupt. Somehow, though, giving up Hugh’s love is starting to seem worse.

The flock of insipid debutantes Hugh's mother invites to a house party, bore him. Instead, he's captivated by an enigmatic stable hand who swears she’ll never marry. The harder he presses her, the more she urges him to wed Ellie Albright, the silliest goose in the whole unappealing lot. What Hugh desires is a strong, independent woman who can hold her own and who cares about something other than the latest hat styles. And that’s just the type of woman he's never going to find in his mother’s parlor…

This is my first book by Mrs. Ahearn. I liked the leading man and woman. The man was a titled, alpha male. The female was strong, yet reasonable. The book is about 650 pages. The romance is good but mostly teasing. The storyline is different. There is a lot of deception which i dont personally like, but understand that it made the story.

It feels like I haven't read a great historical romance novel in ages.  I'm so glad I read this book, especially since it's not the typical historical romance.  Don't let the lovely cover fool you.  The story had a more Gothic feel to it. I read this book in no time.  I was caught up in Ellie's escapades.  I liked that she was proactive when things seemed wrong at her house and she was willing to go to extreme lengths to get back her beloved horse. There were moments when I laughed, cringed, was worried and anxious.  There were almost moments when I needed to fan myself, because they were so hot! I was a more than a little amazed by Hugh and his incapability to see Ellie behind her costume when he professed to love the stable girl version of her so much.  I also really liked the suspense/mystery aspect of the story even though it wasn't very clear why Ellie's family was targeted.  I'm guessing the mystery will be spread out over the remaining books in the series.  This book is sort of reminiscent of Gothic novelist Victoria Holt.  If you're  a fan of romances with twists, then this book is for you.  I'm looking forward to the next installment in the The Albright Sisters series.  I can't wait to see what Elf Ahearn does!

What an exceptional read! Ellie is an indelible character: a smart, quirky, strong-willed woman trapped in the societal confines of her times. Her humor and attitude are refreshing, and yet she is flawed as well, and must learn some hard lessons as she tries to both save her family from ruin and win the man she loves. Her relationship with Hugh Davenport is rich and complex. These are very well drawn characters that end up caught in such an intricate web of emotional deception that it is at turns both hilarious and heart wrenching. The story is populated by many interesting characters ... and animals. It's obvious the author has a deep understanding of all kinds of creatures and describes their behaviors in a very credible way. The love affair between Hugh and Ellie also follows a very organic path that always feels honest--at times flirty and fun, at times painful and deepy moving--and always very passionate (the sensuality drips off the page). A very satisfying read. And particulary if you are a lover of horses, this is one not to be missed. Manifesto is a magnificent creature ... the powerful dapple grey stallion that proves central to the entire plot. I think A Rogue in Sheep's Clothing is not only an exhilarating period romance, but one of the great books on horses worthy to be added to the canon of The Black Stallion, National Velvet, and Misty of Chincoteague.

A Rogue in Sheep's Clothing by Elf Ahearn is book one in the Albright Sister series. Ellie is the first sister to have her story told. I have to say I adored Ellie, she funny, independent, spunky, smart, charismatic, and has no problem going against the rules of high society to do what makes her happy and helps her family. She loves horses and is very good with them. I too love horses so I enjoyed reading about their training and racing. I admired this girl for the lengths she would go through to help her family. She does a lot of things in order to protect her family and their home. Ellie is quite the brave young lady. Ellie's relationship with Hugh Davenport is complicated to say the least. I had such fun reading the scenes between these two, they have a chemistry that is all their own.   Hugh Davenport has issues from his past that complicate his relationship with Ellie. These two have a few obstacles to over come in order to find their way together. There is a lot of drama and mystery that unfolds during Huge & Ellie's story.  It kept me turning pages to see what was going to happen next. I'm anxious to read the other Albright sisters' stories,  I will be looking forward to see what Elf Ahearn has in store for Ellie's sisters.  If you enjoy a historical romance with some mystery and drama thrown in the mix, I think you will like this one.
