If you enjoy historical romances, and the secret vendetta theme, then I suggest you try The Rogue Prince. Just because I wasn't enthused by it doesn't mean that you won't be! Sensuous love scenes, a few witty moments, and a mild sense of drama towards the end make this novel a pleasant enough read, especially if, like me, you find yourself in a bit of a reading rut!

His plan lands him squarely in the path of Lady Margaret Blackmoor, hapless sister of one of those boys and widow of the other. When they first m Seventeen years ago, a pair of aristocratic boys decided to play a cruel joke on a sixteen-year-old country boy.
When they first meet, Thorne doesn't realize her identity and is immediately taken with her. While this story is driven by a classic revenge plot, it's about more than that. It's about letting go of the past.

Both the hero and heroine have episodes in their past that rule their present and that they must learn to let go of in order to have a future together. In Maggie's case, her cousin tried to rape her when she was a child, and, rather than protect her, her family has blamed her for this perceived disgrace.
Part of her character growth includes breaking away from her family's influence and learning to be her own person. That was one of the things I liked most about her. Left indebted when her gambler of a husband died, she seeks ways to pay back what is owed by means of her own talents, rather than play the damsel in distress and turn to the wealthy prince who has taken an interest in her. She's a heroine the modern reader can root for without coming across as an anachronism. The hero comes into the story bound and determined to get his revenge.
I'll leave it up to you to discover whether or not he's satisfied with the outcome of events by the end of the story. To say more would spoil the ending. I enjoyed this story as a fairly solid read.
The only thing I might find to say against it is the author's fairly constant repetition of the backstory. I found I could follow the plot quite nicely without all the reminders of the past. Overall, though, the story held my attention and I quite enjoyed it.
Nov 25, Terree rated it really liked it. I liked this book, I liked the guys I was supposed to and hated the ones I was supposed to : I liked that the female lead got backbone early in the book, but I wish she was stronger against her family mother and sis before the last page. I would recommend this to a friend.
