The characters in the Rogue Hearts series really come to life and Grant is no exception. As the dark and surly brother, he has physical and emotional scars that have him keeping everyone at a distance as he works to bring criminals to justice, even though the work is below his station. His point of view was fascinating as he struggles to stay indifferent to Jocelyn, a strong and poised daughter helping her father seek political election. She sees the good man he is behind his barriers of sarcasm and isolation, and humors him with wit and patience, and draws him out of his emotional isolation. I appreciated that the romance between them took time and grew slowly, they learned to like each other before they loved each other. The mystery of discovering who is behind the sinister plot to assassinate the prime minister keeps the plot moving forward swiftly and balances the emotional drama with action and excitement. There is also some subtle humor as Grant feels completely out of his element acting polite in society. My favorite of the series... so far! Can't wait for the next two books which will feature each of the Amesbury sisters! (Thank you to Loving the Book Publicity for a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review)
I received a free copy of The Suspect’s Daughter by Loving the Book in exchange for an honest review. I have never read anything by this author, but I honestly really enjoyed this story in its entirety. The story begins with a woman named Jocelyn. She discovers that someone has broken into her father’s study and then this man threatens her against informing anyone of his whereabouts. Thinking that she may be a servant, the man dashes away leaving Jocelyn frantic—right before hosting a big event in her father’s favor. Upon uncovering a ploy to murder the prime minister, Grant Amesbury breaks into the suspect’s study in hopes of finding some evidence to back up the claim, only to discover that he is not alone but a woman has found him. After his escape, he heads back to his Bow Street office to reconsider his plan—little does he know that the plan basically falls into his lap, drunkenly disheveled and in need of assistance getting home…the one and only home that leads him back to Jocelyn. Will she suspect that he is the man that threatened her life? More importantly, with such serious political accusations arising—will Grant be able to stop the murder or is it just rumors to end someone’s political success once and for all. My favorite characters are Grant and Jocelyn, the two main characters. Both characters have personalities that are wonderfully intriguing, yet frustrating at times as well. Jocelyn is the beautiful, curvy, kind and strong lady of the house. She is not like other women of that status who only care about their appearance and selfish behavior. Jocelyn has dedicated herself to her father’s political career. By hosting events, she has more to her than Grant’s original assumption. Grant is closed-off, strong, handsome, scarred and completely lonely. With his stand-offish demeanor, he was quite frustrating at times. I loved reading about both characters as the investigation progressed. My least favorite character was a passing memory of the woman who made Grant the way he has accustomed himself to be. Overall, I really enjoyed this story! I can’t wait to read the others in her Rogue Hearts Series. This book is so exciting and I just couldn’t get enough of these characters. The author does a superb job with character development and the pace was fast-paced which is wonderful. The only downfall that made me reconsider my rating of this book is the grammatical and spelling errors. There were more than I would like to have seen. In my opinion, the target audience for this story would be adults who enjoy historical romance with a hint of mystery. This book can be read as a standalone and I would definitely recommend it to others. I rate The Suspect’s Daughter with four stars since it was highly enjoyable. The content is original and the plot is very creative. I look forward to going back and reading the first three installments in this series.
