The Rogue (Liar's Club Series #5) by Celeste Bradley

He is a rake of the highest order, moving through Society in an endless pursuit of pleasure and delight. He has resisted joining The Liar's Club, a band of renegade spies who serve the Crown in complete secrecy. But when true love beckons, he must decide to whom he will pledge his loyalty...

THE ROGUE

Ethan Damont's legendary gambling skills have earned him a place at the gaming tables of London's most exclusive homes. He has used his dubious place in Society to aid The Liar's Club. But his latest favor to the group has not only put his life in danger-it has thrown him together with the woman who tempts him to forgo his rakish ways. Lady Jane Pennington is the ravishing niece of a suspected traitor. Now it's Ethan's job to discover if the woman he finds irresistible is naïve to her uncle's deceit-or guilty of treason against the Crown...

Jane can barely wait for the Season to end-until she meets Ethan Damont. After a humiliating first encounter, Jane expects a scoundrel like Ethan to joke at her expense. Instead, he behaves like a perfect gentleman. But just as Jane finds herself overcome by her desire for Ethan, he takes her captive. Suddenly, she is pulled into a dangerous world where it's impossible to know who is friend-and who is foe. Will Ethan prove to be her undoing...or the love she has always longed for?

"Funny and touching...totally entertaining."

-Julia Quinn, New York Times bestselling author on The Pretender

In 1813, Lady Jane Pennington has met every eligible bachelor in London in the three months that she has stayed with her uncle, aunt and five Maywell Mob cousins. Jane notices a light in a room that her uncle closed off. To get a closer look she climbs a tree, but gets stuck on a branch just as gambler Ethan Damont leaves. He rescues her. She later learns that her hero is a filler ¿place card¿, but not suited for any of her cousins......................... Ethan is tired of the Liar¿s Club following him around so he confronts Lord Dalton Etheridge who warns him either he spies for the crown or else. The Liar¿s want him to play cards with Maywell a traitor. Ethan realizes that Maywell endangers Jane and her cousins with his traitorous activity so he reluctantly agrees. Maywell knows Ethan desires his niece so he asks him to escort Jane to a party because he plans to recruit the lad to spy on the Liar¿s Club even as he knows Etheride is also using Ethan to spy on him. As Ethan and Jane fall in love, he chooses his own path to keep her safe, not knowing that she has a more intricate role in her uncle¿s activities................................ The latest Liar¿s Club novels (see THE SPY and THE PRETENDER) is filled with suspense and romance headed by a likable lead couple in which Jane is the courageous patriot while Ethan has doubts. The story line is action-packed as the audience anticipates a showdown between the traitor and the doubter thorough that climax seems weak. He also makes her come in a carriage without touching her by using seductive words; she is too strong for that to occur. Still this is a strong Regency romantic suspense thriller that Celeste Bradley¿s readers will enjoy........................ Harriet Klausner

If you haven't read the other liar's club books-do read them before this one. You get to revisit all the characters from previous liar's stories and need the leadin to this book. Bradley calls ethan a rogue but needed to add:rake-roue'-rounder-and all around rotten rotter. Of course he comes to his senses but not until long after he meets lady jane-hanging upside down from a tree limb-he doesn't see her face but he loves her drawers. Lady jane is a sweet uncomplicated female-loyal to her mother to a fault-(snicker).Bradley takes readers of romance and lady jane to places where no man or woman has ever gone before in a historical romance. Whet your appetite for this story? good-because you will never put it down until finished. On a sensual scale of 1-10 it gets a 9.5.Rarely will i give a book a 5 but this one desrves every one.

I requested this book from NetGalley for 3 reasons, yummy vamps galore, the LOLA HAPPY DANCE WORTHY cover & I absolutely LOVE Eden Bradley UNDIES SCORCHING romances. I loved her flawed characters & the slowly peeling back their many layers, plus how their scarred tissue encased hearts was unraveled the hard way. Ms. Bradley didn't disappoint & had her many HEATED, SCORCHED & EVAPORATED UNDIES in this read! Like I state in my reviews, I will try any genre at least once & I have discovered that gay romances are not for me. Ms. Bradley has always been & will continue to be WELCOMED in my book COSMO with her dazzling creative tales filled to the brim with NAUGHTINESS, but this romance was not my cuppa tea, so I can only give Mr. Bradley a score of 2 fingers up & 4 toes. NatGalley ARC given for my honest review.

I have only read a few of Ms. Bradley's novels, however, I like each book I read more then the last. The characters in this book are wonderful and continously witty. The dialogue is fun to read with many laugh out loud moments. Loved it.

I loved this book!! Ethan was funny and original, together they sparkled. The dialog between the two characters was laugh out loud funny and at times most touching. Highly reccommended.

After reading her last Liar's Club offering, I was afraid that Ms. Bradley was heading south, but The Rogue has more than redeemed things. I'll not summarize things because Ms. Klausner has done so already, however, I will add my endorsement of this book. This is a fanatastic way to spend a day. The Rogue is full of intrigue, adventure, and, of course, romance. Don't miss this Liar's Club title!
